• None Righteous by R.C. Sproul

    FROM TABLETALK | April 2004

    The Psalmist asked the question: “If the Lord marks iniquity, who should stand?” This query is obviously rhetorical. The only answer, indeed the obvious answer is no one. The question is stated in a conditional form. It merely considers …Read More

  • The Origin of Calvinism by John Piper

    FROM TABLETALK | December 2011

    Of course, like every other man besides Jesus Christ, John Calvin was imperfect. His renown is not owing to infallibility but to his relentless allegiance to the Scriptures as the Word of God in a day when the Bible had …Read More

  • The Presbyterian Doctrine of Total Depravity by Thomas Gregory

    Though written many decades ago, the following quotation is an admirable expression of the continuing concern of Reformed thinkers for the doctrine of total depravity. If the church and the ministry of the present day need any one thing more …Read More

  • Radical Corruption by R.C. Sproul

    FROM TABLETALK | July 2005

    In God’s work of creation, the crowning act, the pinnacle of that divine work, was the creation of human beings. It was to humans that God assigned and stamped His divine image. That we are created in the image of …Read More

    FROM TABLETALK | June 2010

    Reformed theology is often associated with “covenant theology.” If you listen carefully, you’ll often hear pastors and teachers describe themselves as “Reformed and covenantal.” The terms Reformed and covenant are used together so widely that it behooves us to …Read More

  • Reformed Theology & John 3:16 by Burk Parsons

    FROM TABLETALK | May 2016

    We see it everywhere. From bumper stickers to billboards, from T-shirts to tattoos, from old faded church signs to spray-painted signs along country roads—John 3:16 is everywhere. As such, some Christians have become complacent about the simple truth of …Read More

  • Reformed Theology Vs. Hyper-Calvinism by Michael Horton

    FROM TABLETALK | November 2005

    Before the average believer today learns what Reformed theology (i.e., Calvinism) actually is, he first usually has to learn what it’s not. Often, detractors define Reformed theology not according to what it actually teaches, but according to where they …Read More

  • The Soul of the Solas by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | November 2012

    It puzzles me deeply that so few are puzzled deeply by the paradox. We are so used to the befuddling language that we miss its befuddling nature. It ought to stop us in our tracks and arrest our attention, like …Read More
