• The Children’s Crusade Article by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | May 2011

    The Devil delights in false dichotomies. When he persuades us that our choices are between this foolishness and that weakness — heads, he wins; tails, the kingdom loses. When we are lukewarm in our commitment, when we think the kingdom of God is just some ethereal thing that no one can see, the Devil encourages us in just this direction. We see the kingdom as only future, and so we sit on our hands waiting. Such is not, of course, a passionate seeking of His kingdom or His righteousness. The Devil is not afraid, however, of kingdom zealots. Those whose … View Resource

  • The Holy Catholic Church (Africa Journal #2) Article by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    One of the great blessings of my calling is that I am called to travel far and wide from time to time. Over the course of little more than a year, I have traveled to teach in the United Kingdom, Japan, and now in Africa. I come home each time encouraged to see the Spirit of God at work in places that are far to me, but near to Him. While my joy increases, however, so does my concern. The more aware I become of how God is at work in distant lands, the more I become aware of the … View Resource

  • How much weight should our opposition to abortion carry in our voting decisions? Article by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    How much weight should our opposition to abortion carry in our voting decisions? God calls us to think His thoughts after Him. That means all of His thoughts. That is, we ought to have a sound and biblical view on everything the Bible touches on. Where it touches on political issues, we are called, again to have sound biblical views. We need to think biblically about what is just war and what is not. We need to think faithfully about taxation, and the size and scope of government. We need to think through what obligation, if any the state has … View Resource

  • Is the model for the church’s worship today the temple or the Jewish synagogue? Article by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    Is the model for the church’s worship today the temple or the Jewish synagogue? What an excellent question. There are those who would suggest that the Bible doesn’t give us a model at all, and we are therefore free to do whatever we please. Thankfully, your question—and the Bible—leaves no room for that option. So let’s consider the other two. On the opposite side of the spectrum of the “do what you want” crowd are the heirs of the Puritans who adopt what we call “the regulative principle of worship” (RPW). It takes the view that we can only … View Resource

  • Don’t Look Back Article by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | January 2004

    Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. I’ll admit I got taken in the first time. As a grade school child my conception of cool included too tight silk shirts and blue jeans with more flair than Liberace. I even had my own polyester jumpsuit. I looked like a cross between Howdy Doody and Elvis, in his latter years. The current fashion craze of recreating the nightmare of the seventies hasn’t filled my heart with a warm dose of nostalgia. Instead it makes me embarrassed for what I used to wear. I’ve learned my lesson … View Resource
