Nick Batzig – The Curse Reversed

One of the great keys to understanding the nature of Jesus’ saving work is to understand the nature of the curse pronounced by God on His rebellious image bearers. No sooner did Adam sin against God, bringing guilt and corruption to the who human race, that God came...

Micah Fries – Why You Should Care for Creation Now

Gnosticism was at the heart of much of the New Testament writers’ objections. At its root, Gnosticism argued that the material world was bad, and the spiritual world, or realm, was good. The majority of Gnostics, then, practiced a mix of asceticism and even...

Austin Brown – Reflections in Genesis 3:15

R. C. Sproul – What Difference Does an Inerrant Bible Make?

Does it matter whether the Bible is errant or inerrant, fallible or infallible, inspired or uninspired? What’s all the fuss about the doctrine of inerrancy? Why do Christians debate this issue? What difference does an inerrant Bible make? Before answering that...

Matthew Holst – 10 Wisdom Principles on Hearing and Speaking

1. “Whoever restrains his words has knowledge, and he who has a cool spirit is a man of understanding” (Proverbs 17:27-28). Restraint in speech, both in content and manner, is a mark of a Christian. How we say something can be as beneficial or harmful as what we say....

Herman Bavinck – The Spirit’s Means of Grace: Proclamation

How does Christ communicate his benefits to his people, to the church? Does he use means? Mystics deny this; Rome insists that they are essential and tied to the sacramental power of the institutional church’s priesthood. The Reformation adopted a position in between...

Joe Thorn – 6 Rules of Cultural Engagement

What do people mean when they say "cultural engagement?" That phrase is often spurned as if it means thoughtless syncretism between the church and culture. In my reading it rarely means that. It is certainly not what I mean. I am a fan of that three-fold approach to...
