Standing Together On the Bedrock of God‚Äôs Truth
Is the church in America alive, or is it dead? This question is not as easy to answer as it might seem. There are many outward signs of strength. A large proportion of people in the United States profess to be born again. Politicians often profess faith in Christ. Megachurches dot the land.
When we look a little deeper, however, we find signs of death. Many professing Christians deny the existence of objective truth and ethics. Some elevate personal experience to a level of authority equal to Scripture. Congregations neglect preaching in favor of marketing techniques and entertainment. Such things reveal a hollow core, a lack of steadfastness in those things that endure.
Revelation 3:2 tells us that when we see death and not life, the faithful remnant is called to "strengthen what remains and is about to die." Now, perhaps more than ever before, we must stand with conviction. We live in age of compromise, but if we stand on the bedrock of God's truth, we will not bend with the winds of relativism and faithlessness.

An Invitation from R.C. Sproul
On February 21-23, 2013, Ligonier Ministries will be hosting our annual conference in Orlando, Fla. Alistair Begg, Sinclair Ferguson, Robert Godfrey, Steve Lawson, R.C. Sproul Jr., Cal Thomas, and Ravi Zacharias will join me as we consider the theme "No Compromise: Standing for the Truth of God's Word." We will examine the Word of God and what it says about standing firm for bedrock truths such as the resurrection of Christ, the trustworthiness of Scripture, God's plan for the family, our need to show mercy, the importance of theology, the primacy of preaching, the exclusivity of Jesus, the place of the church, our call to be on the offense against the city of man, and the final victory of Christ and His people. As always, this promises to be an encouraging time of study.
I hope that you will consider joining us in February for fellowship, encouragement, prayer, worship, and study during this conference. We look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones as we learn how to stand firm for our Savior.
