Murder and the Heart
We live in a murderous culture where violence and suicide are leading causes of death.
The Origins of Family Law
The Christian faith had a profound impact on the beginnings of legal protection for women, children, and the family.
The Family and the Law of God
All law, being an expression of someone's morality, is an inescapable concept. Either God's law will define all morality, or man's law will.
Riches in Poverty
Sin is deceitful, offering us many ways to make us happy, but ultimately all but Christ's offer of blessed life leads to misery and death.
This Mist of Life and the Will of God
We don't merely preface our plans with "if the Lord wills" but we want embedded in our character the knowledge that our lives are under God's control.
The Royal Law
Many people believe we can distinguish love and law; however, love is the fulfilling of the law.
At Ease in Zion
The cross highlights the moral necessity of God's wrath against sin and His sacrifice to show sinners His mercy.

Appeals and Apologetics
The concept of covenant is basic to all of the Bible. God sovereignly establishes a special relationship with His people, promising them benefits and requiring obedience. If a covenant is to be meaningful, there must be a penalty for breaking it. The gospel of Jesus is something we are to obey, not merely something we receive or believe. The blessings and judgments of God are real, and still apply to us today.
