• Angels and Demons Go Pop Culture Article by Gene Edward Veith

    FROM TABLETALK | July 2007

    I believe there are angels among us,” sang the pop-country group Alabama to the accompaniment of a children’s choir. And most Americans agree. According to a 2005 Fox News poll, 79 percent of Americans believe in angels. This belief is apparently on the rise, up from 72 percent a decade earlier.  Albert Winseman, the religion and values editor with the Gallup pollsters, has noted the paradox that as secularism in America increases belief in “entities from the beyond” is also increasing.  The new popularity of angels not only crosses religious lines, it crosses religious and non-religious lines … View Resource

  • The Devil in the Details Article by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    The Christian is engaged in a three-front war. The Bible, replete with martial language, bears this out. The great evil trinity against which we fight is the world, the flesh, and the Devil.

How many angels can dance on the head … View Resource

  • Truly Supernatural Article by Robert Rothwell

    FROM TABLETALK | May 2006

    Near the end of my seminary days, I remember one of my professors chastising us because we really “did not believe the Bible.” I found this to be a remarkable statement because, after all, I was attending one of the most conservative seminaries in the country, one that I had chosen because of its overall biblical fidelity. But my professor was not questioning our commitment to the inspiration of the Scriptures. Instead, he was simply calling into question the prevailing, modern worldview that has affected all of us in Western society. My professor used the example of the rainbow … View Resource
