Sproul makes an important distinction between the true knowledge of God revealed in […]

The Ten Commandments

10Commandments

The Ten Commandments Enduring Elements of Public Worship (part 3) In the past few weeks I have prefaced articles about the Apostles’ Creed and the Lord’s Prayer with this reminder:  Thomas Aquinas said we must know: What to believe (The Apostles’ Creed) What to pray for (The Lord’s Prayer) How to live (The Ten Commandments) […]

The Public Reading of the Bible

Bible

What happened to the public reading of God’s Word? A visit to many “evangelical” churches will confirm how few give serious attention to this biblically mandated part of corporate worship.  Maybe some would suggest that in a highly literate culture where most have access to printed Bibles, public reading of the Scriptures is not as […]

Justice Applied 2014

“Justice Applied”  Good Friday  April 18,2014  Dr. Jerry Nelson I am about to write three statements that I intend to be unnerving, unsettling, hopefully even shocking.
