Try to think about what it must have been like to live before the fall. Of course that is impossible to do because all of our experience has been one of an acute sense of corruption, depravity, evil, and loss. We do not know anything else. We simply cannot relate to a world that is without these...Continue reading.

Some time ago, in a question-and-answer period, someone asked, "Dr. Boice, is it possible for a Christian to commit murder?" I suppose the questioner held the view that there should always be a basic minimum of sanctification in a Christian that prohibits such things. But I answered as I...Continue reading.

When Adam stood in the Garden of Eden before the tree of the knowledge of good and evil he was confronted with the absolute authority of God. The command from God could not have been more clear, "From any tree of the garden you may eat freely; but from the tree of the knowledge of good and...Continue reading.

The experience was simply unparalleled. All I...Continue reading.

Toward the very end of Jesus' earthly ministry, he enters Jerusalem-knowingly headed to the Lamb's slaughter. With less than a week of his mortal life remaining, would-be kings or rulers would not have spent their time with the least influential in society...Continue reading.

When my wife and I moved into our house in the early spring, the two trees in the back yard were charming, their trunks splitting and winding like strands of hair, their leaves just beginning to bud. From what we could see, they added allure to the property, which was complemented by the rest of...Continue reading.

The greatest threat to the Gospel in our age is not unbelief. It is not relativism or open hostility to the "narrow" Christian tradition. It is not even the hypocrisy of the church, which holds up the white banner of faith for all to see and then spatters it with the mud of pretense. As...Continue reading.

According to Herman Bavinck, it is only the Christian faith that consistently maintains both God's absoluteness and his intimate, personal nearness to creatures. All unbelieving philosophies inevitably pit one against the other. Pantheism, for instance, dissolves God's transcendence and...Continue reading.
