• The Christian and Society: War of the Worlds: 1994 National Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    He stood more than nine feet tall, sheathed in bronze. For forty days he declared, “This day I defy the ranks of Israel.” Goliath knew well the army he taunted; he knew not its Commander. God Himself struck Goliath dead, working through a shepherd boy and five smooth stones. Like the Israelites, we confront a towering enemy who leaves us dismayed and terrified. The world is imposing, daunting. But greater is He who is in us than he who is in the world. Ligonier Ministries’ 1994 National Conference, “The Christian and Society: War of the Worlds,” explores how … View Resource

  • The Christian Mind: 2012 National Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    One of the things most alarming about today’s culture is the way in which evangelicals are responding to attacks. Gone are the days, it seems at times, when believers devoted themselves to thinking deeply about the world in order to respond humbly to the church’s enemies without ceding any intellectual ground. Many evangelicals have bought into the idea that having one’s heart in the right place is all that matters - that a passion for Jesus and the life of the mind are mutually exclusive. What this view misses is that burning hearts are not nourished by empty heads. We … View Resource

  • Christless Christianity: 2010 West Coast Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    Much of what passes for Christianity in our day is really nothing more than self-help jargon and patriotism that has been baptized in a thin veneer of Christian-sounding language. This has led to anemic preaching, large but lifeless churches, and a Christian subculture that is ill-prepared to declare and defend the church of Jesus Christ. This series of lectures from Ligonier Ministries’ 2010 West Coast Conference featuring Michael Horton, Peter Jones, John MacArthur, and R.C. Sproul analyzes this problem and provides solutions to help the church put Christ back at the center. View Resource

  • Creation & Re-Creation: 2013 Fall Conference at Reformation Bible College Conference with Various Teachers

    Does God care about truth? Clearly, the answer is yes, for the words He speaks are truth itself (John 14:6). Is God concerned with goodness? How could he not be, since “no one is good except God alone”? (Mark 10:18). Does God love beauty? I suspect that most of us would answer, “yes,” but do we really believe it? Do we design worship with beauty in mind? Do we look at writing music, telling stories, and sculpting and painting as callings? How often do we think about promoting beauty in the culture and adorning all that we do with what … View Resource

  • The Cross of Christ: 2000 Nashville Conference Conference with R.C. Sproul

    “Lord Jesus, You are my righteousness, I am Your sin. You took on You what was mine; yet set on me what was Yours. You became what You were not, that I might become what I was not.” – Martin Luther In this profound statement, Martin Luther summarizes the comprehensive work of Christ in atoning for our sins. But how did the ‘exchange’ about which Luther marveled take place? What really happened on the cross? In Ligonier Ministries’ 2000 Nashville conference, “The Cross of Christ,” R.C. Sproul surveys various theories of the Atonement, demonstrating whether they actually satisfy the … View Resource

  • The Cross of Christ: 2006 Fall Conferences Conference with Various Teachers

    As the Good Shepherd, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ willingly laid down His life for the sake of His sheep (John 10:11).

Sproul, along with Ligon Duncan, Derek Thomas, and Albert Mohler, examines Christ’s work on the cross and remind us that it is the centerpiece of God’s redemption.

  • Defending the Faith in a Faithless World: 1995 National Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    The apostle Peter lived in a faithless world. Most people didn’t know the Gospel. Many viciously attacked it. In this context Peter wrote, “Always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you” (I Peter 3:15).  Our world is like Peter’s. Knowledge of Christian truth fades; hostility toward the faith flourishes. And we, fearing ridicule and exclusion, too often remain silent about the hope within us.  No longer.  Ligonier Ministries’ 1995 National Conference, “Defending the Faith in a Faithless World,” prepares you to answer those who challenge God’s glorious … View Resource

  • The End? Finding Hope in the Millennial Maze: 1999 National Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    As the years go by, frenzied excitement abounds in religious circles about the question of whether or not we are living in the last days. Apocalyptic scenarios for the new millennium have even made their way into secular fiction, movies, and television. Some of the confusion is understandable. Prophetic passages in Scripture are notoriously difficult to interpret and understand. The widespread misunderstanding of these passages has led to unbridled speculation and predictions about the details and dates surrounding the last days. Equipping ourselves with some reliable tools for understanding the biblical account of the end times can give … View Resource

  • Essential Truths of the Christian Faith: 1997 National Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    King Ahaz of Judah learned the hard way that a refusal to stand and confess the truths revealed by the Lord leads only to disaster. Today, many professing evangelicals are repeating Ahaz’s error, diminishing the importance of difficult but crucial doctrines. But if the church is going to crash the gates of hell, she must reaffirm and recommit herself to the essential truths of the Christian faith, as Alistair Begg, James Boice, Sinclair Ferguson, John MacArthur, R.C. Sproul, R.C. Sproul Jr., and others remind us in Ligonier Ministries’ 1997 National Conference, “Essential Truths of the Christian Faith.” View Resource

  • Evangelism According to Jesus: 2008 National Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    What would happen if every time we spoke of the gospel we got it wrong? Would our evangelistic efforts introduce people to the wrong Jesus? It is imperative that we know, believe, and proclaim no other gospel than the one delivered by Jesus Himself. In these lectures from Ligonier Ministries’ 2008 National Conference, Sinclair Ferguson, Steven J. Lawson, John MacArthur, C.J. Mahaney, R.C. Sproul, R.C. Sproul Jr., and Joni Eareckson Tada teach the different aspects of the good news of Jesus Christ and explain how they must impact our lives and our evangelism. View Resource

    In this series of messages from Ligonier’s 2003 conference series in Washington D.C., Dr. R.C. Sproul and Rev. Kenneth Jones explore the biblical doctrine of sola fide, or “Faith Alone.” Reminding us that this is the doctrine upon which the church stands or falls, they explain that we are counted righteous solely on account of our faith, and they answer common Roman Catholic objections to this understanding of justification.

  • The Gospel: 2016 National Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    In 2 Peter 1:16, the Apostle tells us that he and the other Apostles “did not follow cleverly devised myths” when they proclaimed “the power and coming” of Christ Jesus. Rather, the Apostles were “eyewitnesses of his majesty.” These men saw something take place in space and time that altered the course of human history. The incarnation, ministry, death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus are not legendary events in a fictional tale. They are firm historical realities on which the Christian faith stands or falls. In the face of cultural hostility, followers of Christ must not compromise the bold historical … View Resource
