God

What Child is this?

A central point of attack against Christianity is the deity of Christ. Is Christ merely a human, is he some sort of created god, or is he eternal God? If the Bible is the authority on such matters, then we cannot help but understand that Christ is eternal God, God the Son. The first two verses of the gospel according to John…

Human wisdom and God

In his Institutes of the Christian Religion, sixteenth-century theologian John Calvin maintained that “man’s nature, so to speak, is a perpetual factory of idols.” He goes on to make this point: “Man’s mind, full as it is of pride and boldness, dares to imagine a god according to its own capacity; as it sluggishly plods, indeed is overwhelmed with the crassest ignorance,…

New clothes and Easter bunnies, must-have new baskets for the little ones. Christmas? When Christians campaign to “keep Christ in Christmas,” you know it’s a lost cause culturally. Even the worshipers of darkness find their Halloween sullied…

10 questions with John MacArthur

I doubt any person has influenced my understanding of Christianity and preaching more than John MacArthur. A series of MacArthur’s audio cassette tapes loaned to me by a former missionary to Brazil opened my mind and heart and understanding to the concept that the glory of God is central to everything. That must have been about 1980, and I’ve followed Dr. MacArthur’s…
