Today Christian theologian and teacher RC Sproul went home to be with the Lord around 3 PM Eastern Standard Time.  Over at Ligoner Ministry they have these details:

Dr. R.C. Sproul went home to be with the Lord this afternoon around 3 p.m. surrounded by his wife, Vesta, and family in his hospital room in Altamonte Springs, Fla. He was 78. He died peacefully after being hospitalized twelve days ago due to severe respiratory difficulties exacerbated by the flu and complicated by chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Known to millions of Christians as simply “R.C.,” he was used of the Lord to proclaim, teach, and defend the holiness of God in all its fullness. Through his teaching ministry, many of us learned that God is bigger than we knew, our sin is more deeply rooted than we imagined, and the grace of God in Jesus Christ is overwhelming.

God called R.C. to proclaim the gospel to as many people as possible. R.C. did this knowing the Lord did not need him. In fact, he wanted people to know the enduring, faithful witness of God’s servants throughout church history. God powerfully used R.C.’s ministry in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries to awaken people around the world to the truths of classical Christianity.

It belongs to others in the days, weeks, months, and years ahead to assess the impact of R.C.’s ministry in the history of the church. In this moment, we feel loss—immense sadness and profound loss—the loss of a pastor, a teacher, a leader, a brother-in-Christ, a friend.

He has been a faithful servant of Christ.  I have benefited immensely from his teaching and ministry.  Many in my church have also benefited from his teaching in the past as well.  Over the years on blog have posted reviews and resources from his ministry which you can check out here.

What a sobering reminder that there is an eternity to come.  What a sobering reminder as well that what we do for the Lord extends to eternity.

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that day, and not only to me but also to all who have loved his appearing.” 2 Timothy 4:7-8

I was asked to comment on Matthew 6 concerning the recent controversy in which the Pope suggested that one should not understand this referring to God as the subject of not leading us into temptation.

I thought others have already made some good point of why the Pope shouldn’t make a new interpretation and translation according to exegetical reasons.  Instead of re-inventing the wheels I thought these two articles were helpful:

Is the Pope right about the Lord’s Prayer? by Denny Burk

Ran out of steam to finish my post I was working on last night.  I wanted to ask for prayers from you guys with the ministry God has given me.  Specifically pray for strength, wisdom and guidance with various unspoken issues. In the middle of it all I need to finish preparation for a retreat this weekend that I’m speaking for.

GO TO PART 44

Point: Some Christians engage in apologetics in a piecemeal fashion.  They give evidence here and there.  They refute an objection here and there.  They might not realize the importance of Presuppositional apologetics with its emphasis of going beyond the individual point and pursuing refutations at the level of presuppositions.

I thought I put in one posts as a table of content to my four part lesson plan for a series that I outlined on caterpillars to teach on life science and also the wonder of God’s creation.  This is for kids ages 4-5.  These were originally what I used to teach my daughters as their homeschool lessons.

I also want to say thanks to Biblical Beginning Blog for first compiling these lessons in one post over at her blog here.

Here are the four part lessons:

If you have followed this blog for sometime you might be familiar with brother Michael Coughlin since he often writes guest posts for us here when I am away overseas.  I appreciate his passion for the truth of God’s Word, him leading his family and his humor.

He is going to be sharing the Gospel for next year’s superbowl which is coming up in a few months.  The outreach will be from February 1st though Feb 4th, 2018.  It will take place at Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Would you be interested in joining brother Michael in his outreach?  Click here.

This country and world needs Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.  Even if you cannot physically join them there are still other ways you can be involved as Michael spelled out in the link.
