• The Hardening of Pharaoh’s Heart Media Resource by

    Exodus 7:1-5

    The Scriptures make it clear: God hardened Pharaoh’s heart. Pharaoh was punished for his wickedness towards the Israelites and his disobedience to God. But is that fair? Was God being unjust towards Pharaoh since God was the one who hardened Pharaoh’s heart? Did God create evil in the heart of Pharaoh? In this message, Dr. Sproul examines this question as he helps us understand the nature of wickedness in the heart of man and God’s just dealings with creatures who refuse to obey Him. View Resource

  • The Man Born Blind Media Resource by

  • Free Will and Divine Sovereignty Media Resource by

    Genesis 50:20

    Some well-meaning pastors have tried to explain that within God’s sovereignty, there is a place where He chooses not to exercise His power. That place, according to some, is man’s free will. That explanation simply won’t do. So how do we understand the relationship between free will and divine sovereignty? Considering this in this message, Dr. Sproul warns us of some of the errors created when people try to explain the mysterious relationship of “Free Will and Divine Sovereignty.” View Resource

    You may be surprised to learn that Christianity shares a fundamental view of God with Islam.

But how we understand God’s involvement in our lives is a different subject altogether. In this message, Dr. Sproul discusses the integral part God has in every area of life including “Peace and Calamity.” View Resource

    Psalm 110

    How far would your vote go in a monarchy? How far would the king bow to your decisions? In the Kingdom of God, how far does our vote go? How sovereign is the King, and how free are His subjects? In this message entitled “Adonai: God Is Lord,” Dr. Sproul talks about the Lordship of Christ as he continues to examine the names and titles of God. View Resource

  • Is God or Man Sovereign? Media Resource by ,

    How do we reconcile God’s sovereignty with man’s free will? Unfortunately, many in the church have offered answers that do not stand up to logic. While many others have charged that either God’s sovereignty negates human freedom, or that human freedom overrides divine sovereignty. So which is it, Is God or man sovereign? Dr. Sproul and Dr. John Gerstner have a mock debate over this, in this message entitled “Is God or Man Sovereign?” View Resource

  • All Things Work for Good Media Resource by

    Romans 8:28-39

    None of us are exempt from suffering. Yet as we face life’s challenges, we are assured by God’s Word that all things work together for good to those who love the Lord and who have been called according to His purpose. But how does God work these painful experiences for our good? In this message, Dr. Sproul re-affirms that “all things work together for good,” as he looks to the life of Joseph to show how God works on behalf of His children without compromising His character.

  • All Things Work for Good Media Resource by

    Romans 8:26-39

    A popular book once asked the question, “Why do bad things happen to good people?” In considering that many Christians have asked similar questions when faced with the various trials and tribulations, Dr. R.C. Sproul explains the answer the Bible provides: that for those who love God, all things work together for good. View Resource

  • The Doctrine of Concurrence Media Resource by

    Genesis 50:15-21

    Is it possible for God to turn evil into good? Absolutely not. Scripture clearly prohibits calling evil good and good evil. So how is it possible that God can take men’s evil actions and cause something good to happen? Or perhaps we should first ask the question, Is it possible? Considering this thought, Dr. Sproul looks to the life of Joseph for understanding God’s mysterious working in the lives of His people. View Resource
