  • Defining the Debate

    from Tim Challies Jun 14, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    The June edition of Tabletalk looks at four prominent views of the Sabbath and how it is applied to the Christian. In his contribution to this month's issue, R.C. Sproul seeks to define the debate. "The question of Sabbath observation, historically, has provoked many debates and controversies involving separate issues. The first great debate about the Sabbath is whether, as an Old Testament ordinance particularly emphasized in the Mosaic covenant, it is still obligatory in the context of new covenant Christianity..."

  • Christian Exiles

    from Tim Challies May 26, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    "In a profound sense, this world is not our home. When we are away from our bodies we will be “at home with the Lord” (2 Cor. 5:8). We are not to be 'conformed to this age' (Rom. 12:2). Our lives 'are hid with Christ in God' (Col. 3:3). We have been 'transferred out of the dominion of darkness into the kingdom of his beloved Son' (Col. 1:13). We have 'passed out of death and into life' (1 John 3:14). We are exiles and strangers here." This truth, that we are exiles in this world, is the basis for John Piper's article in the May issue of Tabletalk magazine. Keep Reading

  • Our Ancient Foe

    from Tim Challies May 17, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    Talk of the Devil and spiritual warfare makes some people roll their eyes. We live in an age of particle accelerators, microchips, and organ transplants. The Devil? Why, he’s nothing more than a medieval superstition created to scare naughty children. We can’t take any of that seriously. Keep Reading
  • Schism and the Local Church

    from Tim Challies May 12, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    "Although the Great Schism occurred in the eleventh century, dealing with schismatic people in the local church has been a problem since the days of the apostles." This problem is the theme of Michael Brown's article in the current issue of Tabletalk. "Schism is a division within or split from a church. It occurs in a congregation or denomination when a faction is formed on the basis of something other than the faith once for all delivered to the saints. It is distinguished from heresy, which is false teaching about doctrine. While heresies can (and often do) lead to schisms, most schisms in the local church do not involve heresy. They usually erupt from some 'quarrel over opinions' (Rom. 14:1) in matters not essential to the faith." Keep Reading
