RC Sproul has Entered Eternal Rest

Our beloved RC Sproul has passed from this world into the next, and has indeed met the holy God that he proclaimed to millions through the Word preached while he was on earth. What tribute could I give to this giant of the faith when so many have already spoken on his behalf?

I think that RC Sproul has been the most influential Christian in the Reformed faith since the Westminster assembly first drafted the Westminster Standards. If he were still here on this earth, he would undoubtedly immediately suggest that surely such great men such as Jonathan Edwards, Charles Hodge,  or J Gresham Machen would have to be placed before him. I could not begin to attempt to weigh such men against each other. What I do know is this: RC Sproul has definitely been the most influential contemporary theologian in my family’s understanding of what reformed teaching is, and even probably the most influential reformed theologian for myself in all of history. He was genuine, honest, and knowledgeable in doctrine and how to apply it, and he used the resources God had given to him well, not burying his talent in the ground, but producing many more talents to give back into the hands of his heavenly Father. May God raise up another man like RC Sproul to continue preaching in full strength and with similar zeal the truth and essence of reformed theology. I’m glad that Ligonier ministries is prepared to continue without their dear and faithful leader, and I also realize the difficult standard by which they must measure up to in his absence. God bless the Sproul family.

I could not end this note without also giving gratitude for RC’s optimistic eschatological teachings, as I am a Postmillennialist, and my father taught me much of what I know about the Olivet Discourse from RC Sproul’s sermons on it.

Let us pray that the reformed church is not hindered, thwarted, or caused to suffer in RC Sproul’s passing! The Word of the Lord endures forever.

RC Sproul and Lindsey Grahm: Latest from YouTube

Get the latest from my YouTube channel:

As I continue working on to the end of this year, one marketing venue I have been working to improve is my YouTube channel. It is still a little below professional quality, yet I have been cranking out several videos a week and probably have the quality about as good as it can get with my current camera. I plan to be switching tactics next semester and instead of creating six videos a week, create and release two videos a week. One will be less quality, and the other I will be implementing a new strategy to improve its quality. We’ll see where all that goes, but for now, I thought I would leave you with the last few videos that are hot off the presses!

 

This last video is very special to me now that our dear Rev. Dr. RC Sproul has passed from this life to be with His Holy Lord and Savior. When I created this video (it’s takes some time from filming to publication), I had no idea that within a few weeks, RC Sproul would die. I know his preaching has affected so many. The below text was a very small tribute I gave him in the comments section of a couple of the Ligonier Ministries YouTube channel videos:

Improving YouTube a Little

I’ve finally gotten around to redoing a video on who I am and what I believe, and I’ve been working to improve the quality of the videos as well. A lot goes into a well composited production!

What I Believe in a Nutshell: Christian, Reformed, Post Millennial, Conservative

Hello everyone,

So I thought I would put a short video together detailing the sum of my worldview in a nutshell. This occurred to me because, as those who are following me know, I’ve been doing a series of videos reading select chapters of my two books, The Williams House and Treasure on the Southern Moor. (You can find out more information about them in my bookstore!) As I’ve been uploading videos of me reading my books, I recently obtained my first YouTube subscriber. Then afterward, I made a video detailing what both books are generally about, and in that video I mentioned the two phrases “Christian Virtues” and “Family Values”. After I published that video, I lost my one subscriber.

Whether or not the above was a coincidence, I do not know. Yet, I thought it would be best if I state my principles and beliefs in this video so there will be no misunderstandings. I hope you enjoy! God bless you.
