Short Biographical on Dr RC Sproul

Burk Parsons, editor of TableTalk Magazine wrote a short biographical overview of Dr. Sproul’s life. I am so grateful to Dr. Sproul over the years for teaching and shaping me as a Christian. I encourage you to get know and take advantage of Dr. Sproul’s resources at Ligonier. Here are a few of my favorite quotes from Dr Sproul:

Here, then, is the real problem of our negligence. We fail in our duty to study God’s Word not so much because it is difficult to understand, not so much because it is dull and boring, but because it is work. Our problem is not a lack of intelligence or a lack of passion. Our problem is that we are lazy.

In a universe governed by God there are no chance events. Indeed, there is no such thing as chance. Chance does not exist. It is merely a word we use to describe mathematical possibilities. But chance itself has no power because it has no being. Chance is not an entity that can influence reality. Chance is not a thing. It is nothing.

 If you’re not accountable in life that means ultimately that your life doesn’t count.

If there is one maverick molecule in all the universe, then God is not sovereign. And if God is not sovereign, He is not God.
