  • Why Remember? by J. Reid

    Sometimes I like to ask my boys if God can do anything. By now, they understand enough theology to answer that God can do anything He wants to do, or that God can never act against His character. The immutability …Read More

  • Legalism vs. Gospel Religion by Burk Parsons

    The word religion has fallen on hard times in recent years. Many have tried to pit religion against faith, saying that Christianity isn’t a religion but a relationship. That sounds nice, but that isn’t quite the case. Faith and religion …Read More

  • Oh How I Love Your Law! by Sinclair Ferguson

    At a PGA Tour tournament in October 2015, Ben Crane disqualified himself after completing his second round. He did so at considerable financial cost. No matter—Crane believed the personal cost of not doing it would be greater (encouraged by a …Read More

  • Our Attitude Toward the Pharisee by David Strain

    Steering a course between the Scylla (rocks) of antinomianism on the one hand and the Charybdis (hard place) of legalism on the other is an unceasing responsibility of the Christian life. The difficulty is compounded by the fact that most …Read More

  • Unless Your Righteousness Exceeds That of the Pharisees by Kevin Gardner

    Jesus was severe with the Pharisees, calling them “whitewashed tombs” (Matt. 23:27), “hypocrites” (Mark 7:6), and sons of the devil (John 8:44). And yet, in Matt. 5:20, He points to them as He raises the bar for righteousness: “For I …Read More

  • Against the Law by Mark Jones

    There are few theological aberrations more difficult to define than antinomianism. Some simply look at the etymology of the word and conclude that antinomians are against (anti) God’s law (nomos). Others are a bit more specific, suggesting that antinomians are …Read More

  • Delighting in Our Duty by Burk Parsons
