  • Chosen By God - R.C. Sproul

    1 season

    Many people reject Reformed theology or Calvinism because they believe it teaches that God drags people kicking and screaming into the church against their will. This, however, is a gross distortion of the biblical doctrine of election, which is grounded in God’s love for His people. In this seri...

  • What is Reformed Theology? - R.C. Sproul

    1 season

    There is something healthy about returning to one’s roots. When it comes to evangelical Christianity, its roots are found in the soil of the sixteenth-century Protestant Reformation. Just as the Reformers protested the corrupt teaching of the Roman Catholic Church, so today evangelicalism itself ...

  • The Holiness of God - R.C. Sproul

  • The Attributes of God - Steven J. Lawson

    1 season

    Who Does God Say That He Is?

    Misconceptions about God abound. But they don't have to. God has revealed His character in Scripture, illuminating the attributes that define Him. While we, being finite creatures, can never truly comprehend everything that God is, we should study what He Himself has...

  • Upholding Christian Ethics - 2022 Ligonier National Conference

    25 items

    The holy character of God is the absolute standard of right and wrong. And He has spoken. Therefore, to reject Him and abandon His Word is to undermine the foundation of morality. How can Christians live with integrity as we engage a world where God is hated, immorality is celebrated, and the tru...

  • Right Now Counts Forever - 2021 Ligonier National Conference

  • No Other Gospel - Stephen Nichols - Ligonier

    The Apostle Paul tells us that there is but one gospel and that anyone who proclaims or believes a gospel that is different from the one God has revealed is under the curse of the Lord (Gal. 1:6–9). What we believe about God and His gospel has eternal ramifications, for if we believe the wrong go...

  • Working as for the Lord – Steven Lawson – Ligonier

    God redeems us from our fallen world and its desires, but then He sends us back into the world, giving each of us a vocation wherein we serve Him by serving our neighbors, bearing witness to the goodness of our Creator (1 Thess. 4:1–12; 2 Thess. 3:6–12). No matter our vocation, we are to work dil...

  • The Holiness of God and His People – John MacArthur – Ligonier

    Isaiah 6 gives us a grand vision of the holiness of God and reminds us that He is “holy, holy, holy.” When the prophet Isaiah saw this grand vision, he cried out because he was a man of “unclean lips.” Because of Isaiah’s sinfulness, a seraphim promptly flew to him, touched his lips with a coal, ...

  • The Centrality of the Family – Joel Kim – Ligonier

    In the beginning, God created the family for His glory, establishing it as a picture of His love for His people and the place where children grow in the nurture and admonition of the Lord (Gen. 2:18–25; Eph. 5:22–6:4). How we live in the family is a testimony to our family members and to outsider...

    Ephesians 3:1–13 teaches that God’s eternal plan for humanity is to unite Jews and gentiles as one body of Christ, to bring together people from every tribe and tongue as fellow heirs of God’s glory in the church.

  • Glorifying God in Our Bodies – W. Robert Godfrey – Ligonier

    Christians are called not to be conformed to this world but to be transformed by their renewing of their minds so that they will know and do what is good (Rom. 12:1–2). And though we want to conform all of our lives to Christ, Scripture places special warnings on sexual transgressions, telling us...

  • The Providence of God – Derek Thomas – Ligonier

    Right now counts forever because God is in control of all things. He has created a moral universe in which our actions have consequences both now and forever. God can do all things, and none of His purposes can be thwarted (Job 42:2). In this session, Dr. Derek Thomas reminds us that this knowled...

  • The Word of the Lord Stands Forever – Steven Lawson – Ligonier

    Through the folly of what we preach—Christ and Him crucified—God saves those who believe. Preaching is the primary means by which the Lord calls people to faith in Christ and changes their hearts by the power of His Spirit. How and what we preach will open the kingdom to people or create a stumbl...

  • Achieving an Eternal Glory – Derek Thomas – Ligonier

    The pain of suffering in the moment seems intense and unbearable, but our experience of suffering has lasting consequences beyond our present ordeals.

  • Go Therefore - W. Robert Godfrey - Ligonier

    Christ commissioned His church to preach the gospel to all nations and to teach His people everything that He has commanded them (Matt. 28:18–20). The church is called to preach Christ and to call people to trust in Him, but it is not to stop there. Instead, the church is to make disciples, teach...
