• 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

  • Machen’s Warrior Fathers by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    There is no escaping that we serve a God of covenants. It is His habit to work through means. High on that list of means is faithful men with a vision that extends beyond their nose, men who purpose in …Read More

  • Jesus Christ Superstar by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | March 2005

    The biggest oxymoron in Hollywood may well be this one: Bad publicity. In the television age, what they say about you no longer matters, as long as they are talking about you. Face time is what it’s all about …Read More

  • No Accounting by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | February 2005

    There’s no accounting for taste. Or to put it another way, the taste has reasons that reason knows not of. We like what we like, and we don’t like having to explain it. Which is why postmodernism fits …Read More

  • American Idols by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | January 2005

    We are made in God’s image. The sheer fact that we could spend the rest of our lives contemplating what it means to be made in God’s image, without beginning to scratch the surface, reminds us that we …Read More

  • High Fidelity by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | December 2004

    And to forsake all others, till death do us part.” One would think, that with the decades-old trend in the broader culture of “personal marriage vows,” wherein husband and wife fill in the blanks and speak their own words, that …Read More

  • Amazing Grace by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | November 2004

    Perhaps the most subtle verbal sleights of hand are acts of equivocation. Equivocation is when we use one word, but with two different meanings. The change happens so fast we miss the palmed meaning, and are made fools. The classic …Read More
