• The Devil in the Details by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | July 2007

    The Christian is engaged in a three-front war. The Bible, replete with martial language, bears this out. The great evil trinity against which we fight is the world, the flesh, and the Devil. In our day we have made …Read More

  • Kingdoms in Conflict by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | June 2007

    It is the special gift of the serpent that he is not only able to construct his own diabolical versions of the things of God but that he is able in turn to disguise what he is doing. He …Read More

  • Our Daily Bread on Steroids by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | May 2007

      Over the years, Tabletalk has been called all sorts of things. At first, it was more homey than glossy, giving the appearance of having been mimeographed in some back room. It was, early on, and appropriately so, in a …Read More

  • From Table-Talk to Tabletalk by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | May 2007

    We love the dramatic. When we think about the Reformation we can hear the pounding of the nail into the church door as Luther dared the scholars of his time to debate his 95 theses. We see in our mind …Read More

  • Hope by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | April 2007

    Strange as it might seem, I was actually looking forward to seeing her, and wondering how she would react to seeing me. Two years ago my dear wife Denise was stricken with cancer. She received excellent treatment, and faced …Read More

  • We Are Family by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | March 2007

    The serpent, who is more cunning than any of the beasts of the field, is a counterfeiter. It is his wily custom to not merely construct an alternate realm to the realm of Christ, but to craft every piece …Read More

  • Fire and Rain by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | January 2007

    I can’t help but love my doctor. Any man who commits himself to serving those suffering from cancer probably has a large heart himself. He was a gracious help to my wife a few years ago, and he was …Read More

  • Christians Aren’t Perfect… by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | December 2006

    By this,” Jesus said, “all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another” (John 13:35). Here Jesus gives us an apologetic we seem to have lost sight of. One of the blessings …Read More

  • Discerning the Body by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | November 2006

    The hard driving forces of individualism do not yet stand astride the culture like a colossus. We have divided our homes into mini-apartment complexes and our churches into age and gender- segregated shopping malls. We break the ties that bind …Read More

  • One Covenant under God by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | October 2006

    We are a litigious people. We not only like to sue one another, we like to avoid being sued, and having to sue. That is, we hire lawyers not only to write up contracts, but to help enforce contracts. Handshakes …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

  • Bread and Circuses by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    Our strategies are often rather far from God’s strategies. Indeed, the simple fact that we sit down to strategize may be a sure sign that we are far from God’s chosen path. We are plotters and planners, who …Read More

  • The One, Great War by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | July 2006

    In the last sixty years, the United States government has waged war in Korea, in Viet Nam, in Libya, in Panama, in Grenada, in the former Yugoslavia, in Somalia, in Iraq, in Afghanistan, and in Iraq again. These are the …Read More

  • What’s Our Problem? by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | June 2006

    There is a great divide between the city of God and the city of man. The competing armies of the seed of the woman and the seed of the serpent, however, have this much in common — we’re all sinners …Read More

  • What If God Were One of Us? by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | May 2006

    It is an old temptation, to construct images of Jesus out of celluloid. Christians have fought for and against it, and will likely do so for generations to come, until the next medium seeks to supplant the Word. We have …Read More
