• Jesus as God Media Resource by

    The fourth century witnessed some of the most critical Christological controversies in the history of the church. Despite the solid, Biblical determination that originated from these debates, heresies continued to abound about the person and nature of Jesus Christ, and many of these heresies still exist today in different shapes and forms. This should not surprise Christ’s church, because He and His apostles warned us against this very situation and constantly called God’s people to seek His truth in His revelation.

  • A Gnostic Gospel Media Resource by

    Americans are incurably “spiritual,” but this spirituality expresses itself in ways that are incompatible with biblical Christianity. It expresses itself in ways that are essentially Gnostic. The American church has not been immune to the influence of this American Gnosticism. In this message, Dr. Peter Jones compares this private, mystical, and inward religious mentality with the corporate, doctrinal, and visible faith of orthodox Christianity. View Resource

  • Gnosticism and Matter Media Resource by

    God’s Word tells us about the war between the spirit and the flesh. Should we understand that to mean that there is a dichotomy between the physical world and the spiritual world? What’s the matter with matter? Continuing to look at Gnosticism in this message, Dr. Sproul explains the Gnostic’s erroneous view of the physical world, and the effect that still lingers in the church today. View Resource

  • Gnosticism and Truth Media Resource by

    As Christians, we do not want to be ignorant of deep truths of God. We want to move beyond the elementary things of this world and reach upward to touch transcendent the One. There is only one way to that, and only a few have found it. Nothing beats good old fashioned Bible study. But many people do not want to take that route. For them, bypassing Scripture is the true way to understanding. In this message, Dr. Sproul teaches us about the ancient false teaching of Gnosticism and how it has resurfaced again in our day.

  • Marcion Media Resource by

    If you are a Christian, you are being led by the Spirit. We know this because that is what Scripture teaches. Yet many people claim to be led by the Holy Spirit without the Scriptures or only from isolated portions of the Bible. In this message, Dr. Sproul looks at Marcionism—a movement that claimed to be led by the Spirit of God while denying the very Word of God that teaches us about the Holy Spirit. View Resource

  • Montanism Media Resource by

    In the early centuries of the church there was no shortage of people who wanted to have a heightened spiritual experience. And just like today, there was no shortage of influential leaders who promised to give it to them. Are you tired of the same ole, same ole? Do you want to find the way to a deeper-life in the spirit? In this message, Dr. Sproul warns us of the dangers of pursuing the so-called “deeper life” experiences by looking back to an ancient heresy called Montanism, which seems to get recycled every few centuries.
