  • The Christian and Art (pt. 1)

    from R.C. Sproul Apr 28, 2009 Category: Articles

    I lived in the city of Amsterdam during the 1960s. As I walked through the city, I recognized the names on many of the street corners. There was Beethoven Straat, Vanderhelstlaan, and Rembrandt Plein. The streets and places that I encountered there often bore the name of famous composers or artists. Keep Reading
  • Another Doubter of Darwin Goes Public

    from Keith Mathison Apr 27, 2009 Category: Articles

    Although books related to the never-ending discussion of the pros and cons of Darwinism are constantly rolling off the presses, there are only a few that have the potential to mark a major turning point in the debate. Keep Reading
  • Top 5 Commentaries on the Book of James

    from Keith Mathison Apr 25, 2009 Category: Articles

    The book of James is possibly the earliest writing found in the New Testament canon. It was likely written after Paul began to bring the Gospel to the Gentiles but before he and James met at the Jerusalem Council (cf. Acts 15). There are a number of helpful commentaries on the Book of James, and the following are five of the best.    Keep Reading
  • A ‘Great’ Leader

    from Gene Edward Veith Apr 24, 2009 Category: Articles

    These days it's easy to become cynical about politicians, government officials, and other national leaders. Governing a country takes hard-nosed, practical realism. Morality and religion are well and good, many of us say, but someone who follows such ideals in the political arena will be eaten alive. Yet, consider the example of a ninth-century king named Alfred the Great. Keep Reading

  • Measuring Success

    from Larry Mininger Apr 21, 2009 Category: Articles

    About forty people scattered on metal chairs greeted me on my first Sunday in my first (and only) pastorate in a quaint little sanctuary nestled in the woods between massive orange groves just west of Orlando, Florida. There were no pews, organ, carpeting or paved roads leading to this place. Snakes in the breezeway and gators in the nearby lake -- I thought I was in the jungle! Keep Reading
  • Love Gifts of the Ascended Christ

    from Don Kistler Apr 19, 2009 Category: Articles

    Preachers are one of the love gifts of the ascended Christ to His body, the church. We should never let anyone denigrate the sacred calling of a pastor to stand in his pulpit and faithfully exegete the inspired Word of God to the people of God, thereby carrying out his ministry to be the mouthpiece of God.

  • Top 5 Commentaries on the Book of Habakkuk

    from Keith Mathison Apr 18, 2009 Category: Articles

    As his book reveals, Habakkuk understands why God is punishing his disobedient people, but he does not understand why God is using a wicked nation as his instrument of judgment. The book deals with this question and the required response of faithful trust in God. There are a number of helpful commentaries on the Book of Habakkuk, and the following are five of the best.    Keep Reading
  • The Christian and Science (pt. 3)

    from R.C. Sproul Apr 17, 2009 Category: Articles

    There is a sense in which the Christian should be the most passionate scientist of all because he should be rigorously open to truth wherever it is found. He should not be afraid that a new discovery of something that is true will destroy his foundation for truth. If our foundation for truth is true, all other truth can only support it and enhance it. It can't destroy it. Therefore, Christians ought not to be afraid of scientific inquiry. This does not mean that we should uncritically accept all pronouncements and pontifications of scientists. Scientists are fallible and may occasionally make arrogant statements that go far beyond the realm of their own expertise. Keep Reading
