• 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

  • Right Now Counts Forever by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | July 2010

    It was Augustine who argued that every sin is a failure to love ordinately. Sin is the result of either loving something more than we ought or the result of loving something less than we ought. We are to love …Read More

  • Repentance and Reformation by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | June 2010

    The Protestant Reformation is called the Reformation for a good reason. It is not called the First Reformation or Reformation II, as if they happen every so often. I have never been asked, when referencing the Reformation, “Of which Reformation …Read More

  • The One-Two Punch by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | May 2010

    The one thing I want you to be certain to do is finish reading this column and brush your teeth every evening. I trust at least two things strike you about this opening sentence. First, it’s a rather odd …Read More

  • Something New Under the Sun by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | April 2010

    Imagine, if you would, that you are the most powerful person in the world. Now imagine that you are also the richest person in the world. Would your life be fundamentally different? Would everything that is now ordinary about your …Read More

  • The Second World War by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | March 2010

    It is natural, though altogether wrong, to think that somehow when we turn the pages that separate the Old and New Testaments that we are entering into more gentle times, that God in the interim somehow became kinder and gentler …Read More

  • Two Birds, One Stone by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | February 2010

    When error comes into the church we face a set of obligations. First, we must confront the error. The world has embraced a live-and-let-live relativism that will accept any foolishness, but will not accept the wisdom of calling foolishness by …Read More

  • Be Still (and know that you’re loved) by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | January 2010

    The children of God are rather different from the children of men. We have been reborn by a sovereign God. They have not. We have been redeemed by a sovereign God. They have not. We are being remade by a …Read More

  • Last Things First by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | December 2009

    Last things last, that’s what I used to say. It seemed to me that there were plenty of difficult theological issues for us to wade through without having to worry about the end times. We all agree, after all …Read More

  • Intelligent Design by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | November 2009

      The culture wars are heating up again. Such, I suppose, ought not to surprise me. Evangelical professor of sociology James Davidson Hunter published his book Culture Wars in 1992. Therein he argued that the real dividing line in modern culture …Read More

  • The Coming Kingdom by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | October 2009

    The world is full of hypocrites, and the solution to this problem is twofold: If you are more modern, you deal with the gap between your obedience and what you pretend to be by trying harder to be good. You …Read More

  • For All the Saints by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | September 2009

      Unity matters. However, so does diversity. Indeed, unity and diversity unite in the very nature of God. God is three persons united in one essence. The world around us fails to see how God’s creation reflects the Trinity, and …Read More

  • Money From Nothing by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | August 2009

    I’m connected to royalty. Granted, it’s a rather thin point of union. In less than six degrees, though through enough marriage links that there is no legal tie, I am connected with the king of the tropical island …Read More

  • He Gave Us Songs by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | February 2007

    He was at least an insightful man, if not a wise man, who first said, “I care not who writes a nation’s laws, as long as I write the nation’s songs.” He understood that what shapes our lives …Read More

  • Where Is the Glory Found? by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | July 2009

    As birthdays go, it’s a big one. It is fitting and appropriate that we would mark the five-hundredth anniversary of the birth of John Calvin. Trouble is, that occasion is being marked in at least two different ways. First …Read More
