  • Only One Way by Bruce Ware

    FROM TABLETALK | June 2008

Dr. Sproul speaks on ...

    How often have you heard someone say, “That may true for you, but it is not true for me?” This is a telltale sign that you are talking to a relativist.

  • Reasoning from the Scriptures by R.C. Sproul

    Is it a mere coincidence that the life of Jesus just so happened to fulfill every Messianic prophecy in the Old Testament? The Apostle Paul didn’t think so.

Continuing this series on The Book of Acts, Dr. Sproul ...
