  • Seeking After God

    from R.C. Sproul Jun 03, 2009 Category: Articles

    How many times have you heard Christians say (or heard the words from your own mouth), "So-and-so is not a Christian but he's searching"? It is a common statement among Christians.

  • The Meaning of God’s Will (pt. 5)

    from R.C. Sproul May 29, 2009 Category: Articles

It is a very practical thing for us to know what God wants for our lives. A Christian asks, "What are my marching orders? What should my role be in contributing to the establishment of the kingdom of God? What does God want me to do with my life?" lt is inconceivable that a Christian could live for very long without coming face-to-face with these gripping questions. Keep Reading
