Columns from Tabletalk Magazine, December 2016

3 Min Read


The December issue of Tabletalk considers the biblical-theological theme of remembering God. Throughout the Bible, we are told about the dangers of forgetting God and the importance of remembering Him. The greatest threat Israel faced, for example, was often not an external one (such as the lure of Canaan) but an internal one (the people's forgetful, disobedient, self-indulgent hearts). In times of spiritual decline, as Dietrich Bonhoeffer observed, "Satan does not fill us with hatred of God, but with the forgetfulness of God." To counter the decay of forgetfulness, we are called to remember the past, present, and future work of God. This issue will help readers fight unbelief and cultivate faith by exploring what it means to remember God.
