  • Ligonier West Coast Conference - John MacArthur - II

    from Alex Chediak Sep 27, 2008 Category: Articles

    After singing six verses of The Church's One Foundation, Dr. John MacArthur gave a message on the question Is Jesus the Only Way?  John noted that, in our day, the exclusivity of Jesus Christ is not an obvious truth for many professing evangelicals.  When he began his ministry, John had not anticipated such an attack on the gospel from within the church itself. Today, an ambiguous gospel is being promoted by many.  But we cannot get this issue wrong without eternal consequences.  True Christians have always believed that unless you hear and believe the gospel of Jesus Christ you cannot be saved.

  • Ligonier National Conference - R.C. Sproul - (II)

    from Alex Chediak Mar 15, 2008 Category: Events

    Dr. R.C. Sproul's second and final conference message was entitled "Counted Righteous in Christ (Imputation)." He began by reading Genesis 15:1-6, where we learn that Abraham believed God, and God "counted it to him as righteousness." Dr. Sproul then read from Romans 4:1-8, where we see Paul hearkening back to Abraham as "Exhibit A" of how righteousness is obtained before God. Keep Reading

  • Ligonier National Conference - C.J. Mahaney

    from Alex Chediak Mar 14, 2008 Category: Events

    Pastor Mahaney's topic was "The Resurrection of Jesus" and his text was I Corinthians 15:17.  Although Easter is right around the corner, we tend to keep the topic of death as far away from us as possible. Yet we must remember that our hope as Christians is not in the avoidance of death, but in the triumph of Christ over death. Pastor Mahaney noted that his purpose today was pastoral and personal. He wanted to apply the doctrine of the resurrection to our souls - and specifically as it relates to death. Keep Reading
  • Ligonier National Conference - Sinclair Ferguson (I)

    from Alex Chediak Mar 14, 2008 Category: Events

    Dr. Ferguson read from Isaiah 53:1- 12. He noted that Isaiah 53 rivals Psalm 110 for maximum New Testament citations, and surpasses Psalm 110 with respect to allusions. Isaiah 53 is the passage that Christ must have turned to again and again. We can hear him saying, "Was it not necessary that the Christ should suffer these things and enter into his glory?" (Luke 24:26) Keep Reading
  • Ligonier National Conference - Steven Lawson - (II)

    from Alex Chediak Mar 14, 2008 Category: Events

    Dr. Steven J. Lawson gave his second and final message entitled "The Saving Power of God." Noting that this is the central theme of Romans, Lawson took his text from Rom. 1:1-18. That all power belongs to God is clearly taught in the Bible. We call this the doctrine of divine omnipotence. Lawson quoted numerous passages which describe the boundless power of God. All creation is under the sway of God's power. But greater than God's work in physical creation is His redeeming work in spiritual re-creation. Greater than God's moving mountains is God's moving the stone of sin from human hearts. The cross is the pinnacle of God's saving, redeeming work. Only a God who is All-Powerful can accomplish such a great salvation. Keep Reading
