  • Live Webcast of the 2009 National Conference

    from Karisa Schlehr Mar 11, 2009 Category: Events

    While there is nothing quite like being able to attend the conference in person, the live webcast is a helpful way to serve those unable to travel or those living overseas. In the past, we've had up to 22,000 people around the world sharing the experience through the webcast. This ministry outreach helps fulfill our desire to "awaken as many people as possible to the holiness of God by proclaiming, teaching, and defending His holiness in all its fullness."

  • Something Different

    from Matt Schmucker Mar 10, 2009 Category: Articles

    "Matt, I don't understand how you and Steve can be a part of the same church given what you each believe and practice." This came from a young woman with whom my wife and I had been sharing the gospel. "I don't understand," I replied. Keep Reading
  • Unquestionable Authority

    from Burk Parsons Mar 09, 2009 Category: Articles

    I am terribly vexed. I have just finished reading an article from the notoriously left-wing magazine Newsweek. In the cover story, "The Religious Case for Gay Marriage," author Lisa Miller argues the case for gay "marriage" using the Bible as her authority. Miller opens with this line: "Let's try for a minute to take the religious conservatives at their word and define marriage as the Bible does." She later asserts, "The Bible gives us no good reason to oppose gay marriage." Keep Reading

    from Keith Mathison Mar 07, 2009 Category: Articles

    The historical context of Paul's epistles to the Thessalonians is found in Acts 17:1-10. This narrative recounts Paul's work in the city of Thessalonica during his second missionary journey. While there he spoke in the synagogue, persuading some Jews and even more God-fearing Gentiles that Jesus was the promised Messiah. There are a number of helpful commentaries on the Thessalonian epistles, and the following are five of the best. Keep Reading
  • R.C. Sproul Jr. on Promises Christians Struggle to Accept

    from Tim Challies Mar 06, 2009 Category: Articles

    In his latest book, Believing God: 12 Biblical Promises Christians Struggle to Accept, Dr. R.C. Sproul Jr. challenges Christians to take a second glance at the promises of God in the Bible in order to see anew the grandeur of what God has committed Himself to do for His people. Sproul explores twelve of the most significant promises in Scripture, methodically unpacking each divine pledge. He shows that while Christians may express trust in God's words, they refuse, in numerous ways, to stake their lives on what He says. Keep Reading
  • Spread the Truth this Easter

    from Karisa Schlehr Mar 05, 2009 Category: Ligonier Resources

    If it is true that the cross is of central importance to biblical Christianity, it seems that it is essential for Christians to have some understanding of its meaning in biblical terms. That would be true in any generation, but it's particularly necessary in this one. I doubt there has been a period in the two thousand years of Christian history when the significance, the centrality, and even the necessity of the cross have been more controversial than now.
