• 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

  • 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

  • A Free Education by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | November 2010

    If you think education is expensive, try ignorance.” “If you can read this, thank a teacher.” Such is the wisdom one can expect to find on a car’s bumper. Wisdom, however, is found in God’s Word, which, surprisingly …Read More

  • The Victory Parade We Don’t Deserve by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | April 2011

    Though I didn’t think such was possible, my esteem for both my father and the Bible took a rather sudden spike. I was blessed to be sitting in a seminary class, while he stood, teaching. He mentioned, almost in passing …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’s …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 do my …Read More

  • Motive Power by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | March 2011

    I’m on a diet. Oops. I’m not on a diet. I’m on a lifestyle change. This has led me to become acquainted with any number of new friends on my plate. I had, until now, heard of vegetables, but had …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

  • The Peace that Passes by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | October 2010

    The Bible is a book that is bigger on the inside than it is on the outside. Look at it from one perspective, and it’s rather a small book. It occupies less space on a shelf than a dictionary …Read More

  • In the School of Christ by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | May 2013

    It is not hard to complain about the government’s schools. The government, at least during every election cycle, seems less than satisfied with its own product, ever promising us that it will improve. Atheists complain about prayers before football …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 in …Read More

  • Broken Churches by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | December 2011

    Broken homes are created by broken people. That is, before we can offer the balm of Gilead to those living in broken homes, we need to be perfectly clear how they got that way. For all the pressures assaulting the …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 …Read More

  • Potent Preaching by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    We don’t understand God. What is it about Him that so often leads Him to mute His power, to hide behind the weak and lame? It’s not as though He doesn’t understand His own power. His Word created the whole …Read More

  • Some Dance to Forget by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | December 2008

    It is a sure sign of the fall that we so egregiously miss what we lost. Jesus calls us to seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness precisely because our priorities are all out of line. Even that …Read More
