“In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loves us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins,” (1 John 4:10, ESV).
Reformed theologian Dr. R.C. Sproul reminds us that what we really celebrate at Christmas is the incarnation of God Himself.
Shane Vander Hart: Christians should pray, dig into God’s word and vote their conscience and encourage their brothers & sisters in Christ to do the same.
From R.C. Sproul at Ligonier Ministries: The church is our mother, but it is Christ’s bride. In this role, we are the objects of Christ’s affection. We, corporately, are His beloved. Stained and wrinkled, in ourselves we are anything but holy. When we say that the church is holy or refer to her as “holy […]
Since today is National Day of Prayer, I wanted to share this prayer that R.C. Sproul gave interceding for our nation: Our Father and our God, indeed You are our God, and Your sovereignty extends over all things. That as God, Your relevance and Your dominion can never be restricted merely to the realm of […]
Miscellany for the weekend. Talk of Lt. Governor running mates in Iowa’s Gubernatorial race is premature, but still fun. I am not Reformed, I am an evangelical Calvinist. The Church, A Hidden Glory From the Hoover Institution – Peter Robinson talks with Mark Steyn – The End of the World as we know it – […]
Tim Challies shared a passage from R.C. Sproul’s book, The Truth of the Cross. Sproul poignantly points out what Christ’s work on the cross accomplished. Some liberal theologians have determined the penal substitionary view of the Atonement to be a form of “divine child abuse.” I see it as the greatest demonstration of God’s love. […]
Enjoy the miscellany! R.C. Sproul: Grace Alone (HT: Reformation Theology) Christianity Today: The Health Care Debate, Early Church Style National Review: A Deck Stacked with Race Cards by Jonah Goldberg (HT: World Mag Blog) Baptist Press: Former NFL coach Tony Dungy to Michael Vick: ‘Where was the Lord in all of this?’ (HT: Kevin Bussey) […]
Evangelicals Anonymous had a short video that dovetails well with an earlier post from today. It is a panel discussion with Dr. R.C. Sproul of Ligioner Ministries, Dr. Albert Mohler of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, and Dr. Ravi Zacharias of Ravi Zacharias International Ministries. The topic of discussion: “your thoughts on the seeker-sensitive church.” […]
This is part of a sermon that R.C. Sproul shared at Together for the Gospel in 2008 on “The Curse Motif of the Atonement.” “Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us—for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree,” (Galatians 3:13, ESV). For […]
1. Just wondering if other states are doing this, but Alaska is looking to divest Alaskan money in Sudan in response to Darfur. All states should look at taking stands against genocide similar to this (if they haven’t already). (HT: Conservatives for Palin). 2. R.C. Sproul of Ligonier Ministries writes “Secularism: Ignoring the Eternal” – […]
Well to make up for missing last week, I’m posting a second Twenty Items. 1. Minnesota has a publicly-funded Islamic school. Katherine Kersten of the Minneapolis-St. Paul Star Tribune reports: TIZA has many characteristics that suggest a religious school. It shares the headquarters building of the Muslim American Society of Minnesota, whose mission is “establishing […]
An objection that I hear often from those who are outside the faith is “you are being intolerant when you claim that Jesus Christ is the only way to God R.C. Sproul in his book Reasons to Believe said something very insightful. Moses could meditate on the law; Muhammad could brandish a sword; Buddha could […]
