  • Ligonier National Conference - W. Robert Godfrey

    from Tim Challies Mar 21, 2009 Category: Articles

    The Ligonier Ministries National Conference is drawing to a close. We have come to the final day and began with a message from Dr. W. Robert Godfrey who preached on "The Holiness of God and the Cross." He began by saying that even as Christians we tend to have a trivial view of sin which turns sinners into naughty kids and God into an indulging grandfather. We like to sin, God likes to forgive, so what's the problem? Keep Reading
  • Ligonier National Conference - Thabiti Anyabwile

    from Tim Challies Mar 20, 2009 Category: Articles

    Late this afternoon we heard from Thabiti Anyabwile on "Cosmic Treason: Sin & the Holiness of God." He began by joking that his name is Swahili and roughly translated means "suffering for Jesus in the Cayman Islands." And then he got down to business. He read Numbers 25 and divided his exposition of this chapter into four sections. He wanted to use this passage to make some observations about sin as cosmic treason. Keep Reading
  • Ligonier National Conference - Q&A Session II

    from Tim Challies Mar 20, 2009 Category: Articles

    After lunch today we enjoyed a Q&A session. R.C. Sproul moderated discussion between Sinclair Ferguson, Steven Lawson, R.C. Sproul Jr. and Alistair Begg. At first I wrote down both the questions and answers, at least as best as I was able. But as time went on, it became quite clear that this was really a kind of discussion between friends. And a discussion is hard to adequately summarize in just a few lines and a few scattered sentences. A straight Q&A is typically straightforward, but this kind of conversation or discussion and all the back-and-forth it involves is quite difficult to do justice to. What I thought I would do, then, is share with you the topics they discussed and leave it to you to find the audio files so you can listen along. Keep Reading

    This morning Alistair Begg preached on "The Breath of the Almighty: The Holy Spirit" and used as his text John 16:5-15. I jotted down some notes... Keep Reading
  • Ligonier National Conference - R.C. Sproul

    from Tim Challies Mar 19, 2009 Category: Articles

    The subject of God's holiness has been a theme at Ligonier Ministries since its infancy and it is good to revisit that theme this year, one year before Sproul's book The Holiness of God reaches its twenty-fifth anniversary. And who better to introduce the subject and kick of the conference proper than Dr. Sproul? He preached tonight from Isaiah 45:1-8. Keep Reading
  • Ligonier National Conference - Sinclair Ferguson

    from Tim Challies Mar 19, 2009 Category: Articles

    After a rather tasty lunch we gathered again, this time to hear Sinclair Ferguson speak about "The Doctrines of Grace." He began by reading Ephesians 1 and said that no man has had a greater impact on his thinking than John Calvin. Keep Reading
  • Ligonier National Conference - Al Mohler

    from Tim Challies Mar 19, 2009 Category: Events

    The 2009 Ligonier Ministries National Conference begins today. Though the conference proper does not kick off until after dinner, the Pre-Conference, "John Calvin--Celebrating a Legacy" began bright and early. This mini-conference features messages from Al Mohler, Steven Lawson, Sinclair Ferguson and Ligon Duncan. They will each speak one time and will also participate in a panel discussion. Keep Reading
  • What Can We Learn from Jesus About Evangelism?

    from Tim Challies Mar 18, 2009 Category: Ligonier Resources

    None of us possesses the power to convert another; yet we are called by God to share the Gospel. He is pleased to use us to bring others to faith. But what does that mean? What is true biblical evangelism? The book of John places strong emphasis on the theme of Gospel witness, including several instances of evangelism by Jesus Himself. In Jesus the Evangelist, Rev. Richard D. Phillips, senior minister of Second Presbyterian Church in Greenville, S.C., explains biblical principles for evangelism, the theology of the Gospel, and shows us Jesus' own practice of evangelism.   Keep Reading

In this work, he focuses on the atonement to show that Jesus had to endure the curse of sin in order to redeem His people from their spiritual death. He recently completed this interview: Keep Reading
  • R.C. Sproul Jr. on Promises Christians Struggle to Accept

    from Tim Challies Mar 06, 2009 Category: Articles

    In his latest book, Believing God: 12 Biblical Promises Christians Struggle to Accept, Dr. R.C. Sproul Jr. challenges Christians to take a second glance at the promises of God in the Bible in order to see anew the grandeur of what God has committed Himself to do for His people. Sproul explores twelve of the most significant promises in Scripture, methodically unpacking each divine pledge. He shows that while Christians may express trust in God's words, they refuse, in numerous ways, to stake their lives on what He says. Keep Reading
