• Conquering the World by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | November 2008

    Thomas Aquinas was a great gift to the church. He stands among the greatest minds the world has ever known. This doesn’t mean, of course, that he did not have his flaws, one of which goes to the heart …Read More

  • Let It Not Be Named Once by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | June 2005

    A given culture’s depravity isn’t measured simply by the percentage of Christians in that culture. Vital to the equation are two other factors. First, and most important, is how spiritually mature those Christians are. Corinth remained a sewer …Read More

  • Castles in the Sand by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | July 2012

    There are, when we disagree, almost always two disagreements. Most of the time the smaller disagreement is the bigger one. Consider election. There are some in the church who believe that God chooses who will believe His gospel. There are …Read More

  • The Days of the Dead by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | September 2011

    September 11, 2001, was, in many respects, a rather ordinary day. I began the day working at my desk, writing. But my plans quickly changed. Many of us spent hours staring not at our computer screens but at our television …Read More

  • The Death of Pride by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | October 2004

    I once had a girlfriend who was a classic liberal. Don’t misunderstand. She wasn’t a classical liberal, that is, one with a profound desire for liberty, one who was skeptical about the role of the state. No, strangely …Read More

  • Sophisticated Lady by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | June 2004

    We’ve all heard the horror stories. First there was the church that offered visitors a free oil change during the “service” if you would come. Then we heard of simple cash rewards. More recently a church raffled off a …Read More

  • The First Number by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | August 2010

    I am the father of eight children. As such, I receive more than my fair share of questions from children, many of which are repeats. That is, not only am I asked by my seven-yearold one day and my nine-year-old …Read More

  • The Best-Laid Plans by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | January 2009

    To suggest that wisdom is always balanced seems to me to be a bit, well, unbalanced. Whoever first uttered the words of wisdom, “moderation in all things,” should, I believe, have healed himself. All things? Isn’t that a bit …Read More

  • Two Thumbs Down by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | January 2011

    Neil Postman, in his delightful albeit ominous book Amusing Ourselves to Death, draws an insightful comparison between two important dystopian novels. Utopian novels, of course, are those designed to show us edenic cultures. Dystopian novels show us hellish futures.Read More

  • A World of Tomorrows by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | September 2006

    Like the March hare, I’m late, I’m late, for a very important date. My column for this issue of Tabletalk was due yesterday. This morning I received from my friends at Ligonier a polite email reminding me of …Read More

  • The Silence of the Lambs by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | January 2013

    The world, Paul tells us, knows what’s coming. Romans 1 not only highlights the universal guilt of all men, but, ironically, defines that guilt as the denial of what we know. We know that there is a God and …Read More

  • A Matter of Death and Life by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | April 2001

    We live in strange times. It used to be said that the only two things we could be certain of were death and taxes. You still can be pretty sure of taxes, but death recently has become rather more cloudy …Read More

  • How much weight should our opposition to abortion carry in our voting decisions? by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    How much weight should our opposition to abortion carry in our voting decisions? God calls us to think His thoughts after Him. That means all of His thoughts. That is, we ought to have a sound and biblical view on …Read More

  • I Will Sing an Old Song by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | July 2008

    Trouble comes to the people of God. If it is not here now, it will be here soon. Those who promise that the Christian life is a breezy walk through the meadow not only have not taken up their cross …Read More

  • The Spirit of Rebellion by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | July 2004

    Though I haven’t the infernal wisdom that C.S. Lewis demonstrated in his classic work The Screwtape Letters, I think I know something about at least some of the devil’s stratagems. The Screwtape Letters, you remember, purported to …Read More
