MacArthur/Sproul Q&A (Video)

This is pretty clever.

Why Did God Allow the Fall?

“It’s a question that puzzles new converts and terrifies Sunday school teachers. Indeed, it’s a conundrum most of us have wrestled with, and for good reason.” Why did God allow the fall?

Reformed Perspective

There’s a new issue of Reformed Perspective magazine available for download if you’re interested.

Credo Magazine

There’s also a new issue of Credo magazine free for the taking. This issue focuses on the English Reformation.

Fictitious Forgiveness

This article explains why self-forgiveness isn’t a responsibility we bear. “But surpassing the crux of self-forgiveness has nothing to do with a secret technique rooted in self-actualization, self-esteem, or self-pampering. In fact, that only pours fuel on the fire. Any approach to this issue which has as its goal making oneself feel better or look better is utterly dangerous.”

The Story of Martin Luther (Video)

You may enjoy this video which tells the story of Martin Luther through Playmobil. Mike Reeves narrates.

Errors in the Tiny Details

Randy Alcorn: “The issue of the Bible’s nature and its inerrancy will inevitably affect how we approach the reading and study of Scripture, as well as our personal time with God and how we listen to sermons in our churches. It will largely determine whether we trust God’s Word or trust ourselves or the current drift of our culture. It will determine whether we sit under Scripture as the decree issued by our divine judge, or whether we set up ourselves as judges over Scripture.”

Flashback: Mark Zuckerberg Covers His Webcam. Should You?

—Charles Hodge
