What do we think when we think about heaven? Is heaven our eternal home? Derek Thomas joins us for conversation about the delightful topic of heaven and the new earth. He’s currently the senior pastor of First Presbyterian Church of Columbia, SC. ...Continue reading.

Why do so many professing Christians think that following Christ is about their personal happiness and success? Perhaps ... these professors no longer endure sound teaching and have itching ears and so accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions (2 Tim 4:3) Why do professing...Continue reading.

For various reasons, the words "scholar" and "pastor" are not put together as they once were. There was once a time when the minister was the most educated man in the community. And there came with that a concern, and perhaps even an expectation, that his pulpit ministry would...Continue reading.

The subject of a picture is determined by how it is cropped. So Systematic Theology guides the minister's eye in preaching Christ through the Scriptures. And for a Presbyterian, the Westminster Standards are the thematic writings that aid his thinking through the presentation of the Bible to...Continue reading.

If you want to do something well, from running a company, to training for a marathon, to passing classes, keeping a house, raising kids, or cooking meals, it helps to have a system. Yet some of us have been told this our whole lives, and still resist doing things, "systematically". We...Continue reading.

It is safe to assume whether you sit in a pew or stand in a pulpit, philosophical trends are trickling into minds all around you. They drip, drip, drip into the intellectual habits of those you worship with, those who teach your children, and those who will eat turkey with you in November. No one...Continue reading.

While being a philosopher and/or being a theologian can be a vocational calling in an individual's life, most of us will never call ourselves either philosophers or theologians in any professional sense of those terms. However, knowing a bit of philosophy with our theology and understanding...Continue reading.

John Calvin was eclectic in his approach to philosophy. That is, he could pick and choose what parts of a given philosophical system to accept, reject or ignore. But there was no question whether he would use philosophical ideas or not. The employment of philosophy was inevitable and necessary. A...Continue reading.

In Colossians 2:8, Paul warns Christians to, Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. Does this command preclude philosophizing? That is, does God forbid "the love of wisdom"?...Continue reading.

Join me as we give some thought to a nagging perennial question in theological circles. What is the relation of philosophy to theology? Are these antithetical? Are they virtually identical? Or are they kissing cousins? The antithetical perspective is seen in the now proverbial query of the North...Continue reading.

I did not know D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones personally. I have spoken with a few people who did, and I have certainly listened to recordings of his preaching and read many of his books, but I do not count myself an expert on the man. I am a second-hand witness at best, and I write this as a distant...Continue reading.

My first experience at church planting was not easy. It was trying times to keep a small group meeting in a nursing home, a YWCA hall, and even an occasional hotel room! For a while, it seemed like we were vagabonds carrying boxes of Bibles and song books in and out of doors from one Sunday to the...Continue reading.

This week on Theology on the Go, Dr. Jonathan Master is joined by Pat Daly, U.S. Manager for the Banner of Truth Trust, publishers of many books, both old and new.

Geerhardus Vos (1862-1949) is widely known as the father of orthodox Reformed confessional biblical theology. Also known as redemptive historical theology, biblical theology is concerned with the progressive unfolding of God's revelation over time in history. Vos himself wrote several seminal...Continue reading.

The Reformed tradition has had an ongoing discussion about the relation of systematic and biblical theology. In some ways this reflects the discussion in the broader Christian community. The debate in Reformed circles goes back at least as far as the dispute between Gijsbertus Voetius and Johannes...Continue reading.

Let me start with a quotation. It does not matter who said that. What he said matters: Exegetical theology investigates biblical teaching as the basis of our talk about God. . . . dogmatics as such does not ask what the apostles and prophets said but what we must say on the basis of the apostles...Continue reading.

Christianity has always been a doctrinal religion. Theology - that which is taught about God, man, and salvation - has always been central to the Christian church. This is not to discount the place of experience. Certainly the Holy Spirit works in bringing men and women to new life and causing...Continue reading.

All philosophical and theological or doctrinal work revolves around definitions of terms and the concepts expressed by the use of those terms. Everyone, Christian or not, engages in theology, and has doctrine. This is because all humans are created in God's image, make knowledge claims and...Continue reading.

As creatures made in God's image (imago Dei), we finitely reflect the Triune God. We are not God, but his image bearers. We are not part of him, but made by him and for him. Absolutely distinct from him, we are in essential ways, like him. Different from yet derivative of him, we do not...Continue reading.

We are given various historical examples and descriptions of sin in Scripture. One way to describe sin is that it is our rejection of, and rebellion against, having the true and living Triune God as our God. But this does not stop God from being God and ruling over us. The first man, Adam, learned...Continue reading.

There is an obvious focus upon the 6th Day of creation to which our attention is called in Genesis 1. This emphasis is underscored by certain changes in the text including the introduction of new phrases and even by the proportion given to it. As you read through the passage, each new day brings...Continue reading.

When a character keeps popping up from cover to cover, you know that by his recurring presence the author is binding the whole book together. So the Holy Spirit shows Adam's real historical existence as really important to the true story of sin and salvation by his protagonist role throughout...Continue reading.
