  • Bondage of the Will Media Resource by

    Many believe that we are totally free to choose salvation. In Willing to Believe, Dr. R.C. Sproul shows that man’s will is not free but in bondage to sin. He says that we are doomed unless God has mercy and changes our hearts. Dr. Sproul examines the issue of free will throughout history, looking at the views of Augustine, Pelagius, Luther, Calvin, Arminius, Edwards, Finney, and others, demonstrating that some assumptions about “free will” undermine the Gospel and conceal God’s glory in salvation.

  • The Degrees of Sin Media Resource by

    Matthew 5:27-28

    Does Jesus teach us that lust in the heart is as sinful as actual physical adultery, and that anger is as sinful as actual physical murder? If so, then why not carry out those thoughts since the judgment will be the same? In this message entitled “The Degree of Sin,” Dr. Sproul reminds us of the exacting nature of God’s justice, and how He measures our sin against His perfect Law. View Resource

  • The Depravity of God’s Image Bearers Media Resource by

  • The Depth of Our Sin Media Resource by

    Romans 3:10-18

    Do you consider yourself a good person? If so, how good is good? Is what you call “good” good enough? Continuing this series entitled “A Shattered Image,” Dr. Sproul teaches us how Jesus defines “good” in this message, “The Depth of Our Sin.” View Resource

  • A Divided Will? Media Resource by

    A common misconception people have of the Augustinian view of grace is that people come to faith against their wills, when the very opposite is actually the case. In fact, without grace there can be no free will. So, what effect does grace have on fallen souls? Does grace cooperate with our fallen wills in order that we may choose the gospel? In this message, Dr. Sproul explains how the regeneration of the soul can only be achieved by God’s sovereign grace, alone. View Resource

  • Does God Create Unbelief? Media Resource by

    Romans 9:9

    If God alone is responsible for the salvation of the elect, does that mean He creates unbelief in those He didn’t elect? Examining this question in this message entitled “Did God Create Unbelief?” Dr. Sproul clearly establishes that God is not the author of sin and does not create unbelief. View Resource

  • East of Eden Media Resource by

    To understand the Bible’s teaching on salvation, we need to grasp why we are in need of redemption. Every individual is by nature sinful and is thus deserving of God’s judgment and unable to make amends with Him. Because of the fall of Adam, life is now lived “east of Eden” (Gen. 3:24; 4:16), away from the bliss of fellowship with God in paradise. This session will consider why we need a Savior who can atone for our sin in order to restore our relationship with God. View Resource

  • Exchanging the Truth for a Lie Media Resource by

    Romans 1:16-32

    Not everyone has heard the gospel. Not everyone has had a chance to read the Bible for themselves. Not everyone was born in a Christian home with the opportunity to go to church. That being true, how can God judge the unbeliever? In this message entitled “Exchanging the Truth for a Lie,” Dr. Sproul looks at these questions as he teaches us about the universal witness of God’s existence that has been made to all people.

  • The Extent of Our Sin Media Resource by

    John 3:16

    What does John 3:16 say about who is going to heaven? This question is debated among Calvinists and Arminians—the hot point of contention being over man’s free will. The common misunderstanding is that Calvinism teaches that God drags people kicking and screaming against their wills to heaven while the rest who want to go heaven are sent to hell. Nothing could be further from the truth. But what does the Bible actually say about the sinner’s “free will?” Dr. Sproul considers this in this message entitled “The Extent of Our Sin.” View Resource
