  • Divorcing Doctrine from Scripture by R. Scott Clark

    FROM TABLETALK | February 2011

    Dear Pithius, Our dear boy, you quite misunderstand the problem. So long as Christians continue to understand the Book to contain truths, claims about the way things really are, about the enemy, about Him-who-ought-not-be-named, about His Paraclete, about humans as …Read More

    Our Dear Gremory, Your charge recently awakened to the enemy and discovered so-called “new life,“ which we know to be a grotesque death. No doubt your patient already thinks of many old things as worn and unpalatable, and has discovered …Read More

  • Not Protesting Evil by Gene Edward Veith

    FROM TABLETALK | February 2011

    Dear Eligos, We tempters have a job that is both easy and difficult. Thanks to our fearless leader’s victory in the garden some time ago, human beings are ridiculously, even comically, susceptible to sinning. And yet, sin itself is …Read More

  • Self-Centered Sermons by Sean Michael Lucas

    FROM TABLETALK | February 2011

  • Missions by David Robertson

    FROM TABLETALK | February 2011

    Our Dear Diabolos, It is clear that you have not quite got the hang of this temptation thing. Take the matter of what the enemy calls “mission.“ We understand what this is — to bring the dreadful news of His Son …Read More

  • Anti-Shepherds by George Grant

    FROM TABLETALK | February 2011

    Our Dear Asag, Remember: our abysmal sublimity does not so much want to tear down “godly” ways as to build up his own. From the apex of temptation in the garden to the present, his conspiratorial plot has always been …Read More
