  • When an Architect Should “Take a Mulligan”

  • Introduction to The Reformation Study Bible

    from R.C. Sproul Oct 31, 2008 Category: Articles

    The Bible is a book. It may be called a collection of books compiled together into one majestic volume. As a book it is designed to be read. In this respect it is like all other books.

It is holy because its content is designed to make us holy. Keep Reading

  • The Power of Prayer (pt. 3)

    from R.C. Sproul Oct 28, 2008 Category: Articles

    Prayer is the priestly function of carrying a petition to God. In Old Testament times two major classes of mediators functioned between God and his people: prophets and priests. Stated simply, the prophet was ordained by God to speak his divine Word to the people. The prophet spoke to the people for God. Conversely, the priest was ordained by God to be a spokesman for the people. The priest spoke to God for the people. Keep Reading
