Dr. R.C. Sproul Jr. exhorted Christians to preach the foolishness of Christ crucified to this world and to stand boldly against modern evils such as abortion. The gospel is offensive and therefore we preach knowing that we will be hated for the sake of Christ. http://www.ligonier.org/blog/day-2-2013-national-conference/
Here you will find posts by the Highlands staff and friends of the ministry. This includes posts on Christian living from people we think will be helpful to you. We will also introduce you to new resources and special offers.
Dr. Sproul has been invited to speak on the subject of Biblical Economics at the New Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on Saturday, February 2nd. Admission is free of charge. http://newpres.org/economics-for-everybody
We are inviting ten couples to come for three days of intense conversation, as well as a great deal of fun. The camp is held at the home of Highlands Ministries President, Eric Owens, in Bristol, Virginia. Dr. R.C. Sproul Jr. will be your teacher. We will not only talk about how to be a kingdom-building, King-serving family, but we will talk about it in the context of such families. We will follow three distinct but related areas of inquiry: the biblical view of the family, the sovereignty of God, and the unstoppable spread of the Kingdom of God. Click here. . .

In the sunday school classrooms in which I taught years ago, each weekly lesson had a main idea that we repeated over and over. Platitudes such as “God loves me,” “I am special to God,” and “We are kind to one another” filled the teacher’s manual. Curiously, we did not see “God is angry at the wicked every day.” Unfortunately, twentieth century American Christians more often take our cues from Frobel and Montessori than from the Word of God. If we are to train up a generation of God-fearing Christians, we must change both the methods and content of what. . .

Dr. Sproul speaks to pastors on the Desiring God website: http://www.desiringgod.org/blog/posts/brothers-we-are-not-professors
It is with great sadness that I inform you that RC’s daughter Shannon died last night. The family would cherish your prayers for them during this difficult time. We, however, rejoice that she, like her mother Denise, is now fully and forever healed. Eric Owens
At midnight tonight and all day tomorrow you can purchase R.C. Sproul Jr.’s book, Believing God (as an audio cd), from our friends at Ligonier Ministries for just $5.
Hour 2: A red-letter day for the Amen Corner…we’re talking religion and politics with Dr. R.C. Sproul Jr. A must-hear conversation on marriage, life, and the power of true conviction. http://stevedeace.com/headline/deace-show-podcast-05-14-12/
Welcome to our conversation, a conversation on making others welcome. Hospitality is just simple enough, just separate enough, just deliberate enough, that we have missed the boat. We think life consists in the things we are busy with, when we are called to be busy about the things of life, of eating, drinking, conversing with our friends, our neighbors, even those outside the camp. We would rather impress our friends than put them at ease, and then we wonder whatever became of community. Join us, and invite others to join you as we visit together for a little while.
On Thursday, May 3rd, Dr. R.C. Sproul Jr. will appear on Ligonier Ministries’ “Renewing Your Mind” radio show discussing his new book, The Call to Wonder. This show can be heard here on the Ligonier Ministries website.
We spelled this issue [kuh-MYOO-ni-tee] to emphasis the point that we Christians today don’t understand what this is. We know what activity is. We know what fellowship is. We even know what love is all about some of the time. What we fail to comprehend is the wonderful, challenging, painful, joyful world that exists within a Christ-centered community. I speak as one who didn’t understand and even today has a difficult time fully embracing it. I didn’t understand it when I joined my church, Saint Peter Presbyterian, in 2005, but it is what caused me to not only join that. . .

When we are yet outside the kingdom, before we are born a second time, we suppress the truth in unrighteousness (Romans 1). This does not mean we are stupid. It does mean we are foolish. We know what we know but because such knowledge exposes our guilt, we suppress it. We are born again when God the Holy Spirit changes us, replacing our hearts of stone with a heart of flesh, when that same Spirit indwells us, and cleanses us. But we are not changed fully and instantly. We are still dirty. We are still, in ourselves, guilty. And we. . .
