• Castles in the Sand by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | July 2012

    There are, when we disagree, almost always two disagreements. Most of the time the smaller disagreement is the bigger one. Consider election. There are some in the church who believe that God chooses who will believe His gospel. There are …Read More

  • Someone is Wrong on the Internet by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | May 2012

  • The High Cost of Ambivalence by Dan Dumas

    FROM TABLETALK | July 2012

    Walking away from gospel orthodoxy or disconnecting from the stream of church history should strike terror in our hearts. But because of personal compromise, far too many believers are found “walking in the counsel of the wicked, standing in the …Read More

  • Knowledge Without Zeal by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | September 2012

  • God’s Hammer by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | November 2011

    Sometimes, indeed often, we build and maintain our paradigms for our own comfort. Our worldviews are usually less the result of careful, dispassionate, sober-minded analysis and more the result of self-serving, special pleading, rationalization of our sin. We believe not …Read More

  • The Bishop of Our Souls by R.C. Sproul

    FROM TABLETALK | July 2012

    The titles that the New Testament writers use for Jesus make for a fascinating and enlightening study. One of the most obscure and perplexing of these titles is found in 1 Peter 2:25, where the Apostle writes, “For you …Read More

  • The Silence of the Lambs by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | January 2013

    The world, Paul tells us, knows what’s coming. Romans 1 not only highlights the universal guilt of all men, but, ironically, defines that guilt as the denial of what we know. We know that there is a God and …Read More

  • More Than an Exit by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | April 2000

    Death has been on my mind of late. As I write, it is just days after Ligonier Ministries lost a friend and board member, Robert Fraley, in the plane crash that took golfer Payne Stewart. And in the last three …Read More

  • Nurturing the Soul by Frank Farrell

    FROM TABLETALK | June 1992

  • The Preciousness of Souls by Thomas Brooks

    FROM TABLETALK | June 1992

    Christ, that only went to the price of souls, hath told us that one soul is of more worth than all the world. Christ left His Father’s bosom, and all the glory of heaven, for the good of souls …Read More

  • The End of Death by Daniel Doriani

    FROM TABLETALK | April 2000

    SIGNIFICANT EVENTS HAVE PHASES. IN SPORTS, athletes first build skill and endurance, then they play the game, and finally interpret the results, celebrating victory or learning from defeat. Banquets also have phases. After we savor the meal itself, we linger …Read More

  • Together in Suffering by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | February 2013

  • A Heart for Adoption by Dan Cruver

    FROM TABLETALK | February 2013

    To be loved by the Father through the Son in the Spirit is to be caught up into an ever-flowing eternal love that progressively transforms, often painfully so, the one who is loved. As those who have been brought graciously …Read More
