• 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

  • Our Fundamentalist Betters by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | March 2006

    As I write, I find myself visiting Gwinnett County, Georgia. It’s a good thing that I am only visiting. If I actually lived here, I’d find myself on the wrong side of the law. It seems the county …Read More

  • The God of Space and Time by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | February 2006

    We are all by nature Pelagians. Like the heretical monk Pelagius, we like to think in our hearts, even should our lips profess otherwise, that we are basically good. Defeating this temptation is one of the great blessings that comes …Read More

  • The Power of His Glory by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | January 2006

    You want to know what your problem is? You don’t love Jesus enough. I know this not because I know you, but because I know me. I’ve got the same problem. My wife has the same problem, as …Read More

  • The Year of Our Lord by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | December 2005

    The world is half full of half-empty thinkers, and I am one of them. Puddleglum is my patron saint. And nothing exposes the vast expanse of emptiness in the top half of the glass like listening to the evening news …Read More

  • God in the Hands by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | November 2005

    It was a strange time for me. I was attending a high school that was so nominal in its commitment to the Christian faith that the high school English teacher was an atheist. Still, his was among my favorite classes …Read More

  • Cults ‘R’ Us by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | October 2005

    There are any number of ways that cultural confusion always walks down the aisle with relativism. Divorce, in this instance, isn’t an option. If, for instance, we all agree that there is no such thing as right and wrong …Read More

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

    FROM TABLETALK | September 2005

    Pop culture is a sanitizing force. No, it doesn’t make the world a cleaner place. It just makes us all the more the same. We are a world awash in golden arches, swooshes, and the real thing. Because people …Read More

  • Confessing Faith by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | August 2005

    While it may be true that there are two kinds of people in the world, (those who like to divide the world into two kinds of people and those who don’t), there are in turn myriad places to draw …Read More

  • The War to End All Wars by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | July 2005

    It has long been my habit, which is fitting for the abiding theme of my column here, whenever I speak somewhere, to remind those to whom I am speaking of our historical context. Context is everything. My goal isn’t …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

  • Laying Down Our Lives by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | May 2005

    The laity are on the move … and they’re moving to Bristol. I serve as a pastor at Saint Peter Presbyterian Church in Bristol. We have all manner of quirks and oddities, some matters of conviction, others unexpected fruit of …Read More
