  • Believing God by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | August 2008

  • Why Should We Pray? by Ligon Duncan

    God is sovereign. That means He exercises His kingly rule over all creation. He ordains whatsoever comes to pass. He is also omniscient, knowing all things.

    During His earthly ministry, Jesus told His disciples that the Son of Man did not come to be served, but rather to serve.

If you do, are there certain things ...

  • What Is Theology? by R.C. Sproul

    What is theology? If you asked most people on the street if they knew the answer to that question, they would have no clue what to say.

Dr. Sproul says in this message that the term is actually an all encompassing subject that ...

  • The Existence of Shoes by R.C. Sproul

    In the first chapter of Romans, the Apostle Paul tells us that we know God exists by creation.

  • The Legalist Distortion by R.C. Sproul

    Not every ethical situation in life has a Bible verse that explicitly addresses it. At that point, we are left with biblical principles to guide us.

In this message entitled “The ...

  • The Razor's Edge by R.C. Sproul

  • Assurance of Salvation by R.C. Sproul

    The Bible calls us to make our calling and election sure. It is our responsibility to make sure that we know we are Christians.
