Dr. L. Michael Morales, Professor of Biblical Studies
On December 14th, Dr. R.C. Sproul, founder of Ligonier Ministries, passed into Glory. We recognize the immense contribution Dr. Sproul has had as a faithful teacher and communicator of Reformed theology. We mourn with his family, even as we thank God for his life and ministry. Please keep the Sprouls in your prayers.
Dr. L. Michael Morales, Professor of Biblical Studies here at Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary, and formerly of Ligonier Ministries and Reformation Bible College in Sanford, FL, has written this brief remembrance of Dr. Sproul:
While rejoicing in his entrance into the heavenly glories of Christ’s presence, we also mourn deeply our earthly loss in the passing of Dr. R.C. Sproul. As with so many others, I was blessed personally in my own understanding of Scripture and of Reformed theology by Dr. Sproul’s life and ministry.
Not only by his rare gift of being able to teach deep matters of faith in an easy-to-understand way, but also – and perhaps especially – by his joyful manner and humorous disposition, Dr. Sproul remains an exemplary pillar of Calvinism that is both courageous and winsome.
R.C. Sproul has fought the good fight and he has finished the race. We give thanks to the Lord Jesus Christ for him, trusting that the various branches of Sproul’s ministry will continue to blossom forth and bear much fruit in the generations to come.
May the God of all comfort and the sure hope found in Christ’s resurrection provide strength and consolation to Mrs. Vesta Sproul and to the rest of the family. Ω
