Some things we never quite leave behind this side of the veil. Try as we might to mature and to grow beyond this peculiar brand of foolishness, I’m afraid that at heart we are still junior high girls. Our problem isn’t, I trust, that we talk on the telephone too long, or that we go… Read more »Posted by Dr. R.C. Sproul, Jr.
Wildfires are raging in Colorado. Governments are teetering in sundry corners of the globe. Christians are being murdered for their faith by roving bands of Muslims. These are all real, true, painful hardships. There are human beings losing their homes, their wealth, their lives. Prayer is fitting. Mercy ministry makes perfect sense. And we are… Read more »Posted by Dr. R.C. Sproul, Jr.
There’s a new division in town, and we’re talking about my g-g-generation. With the rise of sociology, demographics, and marketing we find the world is finding new ways to divide us, sift us, and put us where we belong. Which means in turn that the church is doing much the same. Add to the mix… Read more »Posted by Dr. R.C. Sproul, Jr.
It is sure evidence that we are so caught up in the modernist mindset that we think evidence is found only in careful argumentation, in neatly stacked syllogisms, in test-tubes and beakers. Jesus, however, tells us that it is our love for one another that demonstrates that we are His disciples (John 13:35). This love… Read more »Posted by Dr. R.C. Sproul, Jr.
There are precious few things more deeply longed for and at the same time more difficult to grasp than community. We want it. We delight in it when we find it. Building it, on the other hand, that’s no walk in the park. Defining it, well, that’s not a challenge I would want to take… Read more »Posted by Dr. R.C. Sproul, Jr.
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… Read more »Posted by Eric Owens
Imagine that you or your wife is a month away from giving birth. God has already blessed you with four blessings six and under. Now imagine that ten people have come to stay in your house for three days. Eight children, sixteen down to eleven months and two weary adult travelers. Now you know something… Read more »Posted by Dr. R.C. Sproul, Jr.
“Where do you get from the Bible the idea of small churches? I am a part of a big church, about 4,000 attenders, and have listened to some of your basement tapes which have set me to thinking. I have talked to people I go to church with and they say I am either crazy… Read more »Posted by Dr. R.C. Sproul, Jr.
ETERNITY IN OUR HEARTS
What sort of vision leads a budding Christian writer, teacher, and thinker to move his wife and young family from the city of Orlando, Florida to the hills of southwestern Virginia? Why would he leave behind one of the bustling capitals of the evangelical community in favor of a rural setting? R.C. Sproul Jr. did exactly that. In 1996 the Sprouls settled in rural Southwest Virginia, and founded the Highlands Study Center (now Highlands Ministries). This book explains the vision.
