The Inevitable Question


A Broadcast with R.C. Sproul

Would it be an exaggeration to say that the doctrine of predestination is at the core of the Christian faith? Sooner or later, Christians have to talk about it. If we ignore it, then we neglect the teaching of Sacred Scripture. If you look in any English Bible, you will find a word that causes more controversy than perhaps any other. The word is predestined. Even as you hear that word spoken, you may be experiencing a number of different emotions based on past conversations, or your own private contemplations of the subject. The topic might be closed for discussion. You may have heard two or three different explanations of predestination, and could not decide which one the Bible actually teaches. Frustration might be your number one feeling when you hear that word.

Our Aim

God calls His people to be transformed by the renewing of their minds. This transformation of thinking God’s thoughts after Him is a daily pursuit. To aid you in this, Renewing Your Mind broadcasts a daily message and related resource offer that exposits the glories of God revealed in the Bible against the backdrop of culture, philosophy, apologetics, ethics, and church history. Think of it as bridging the gap between Sunday school and seminary—equipping you for the Christian life.
