Thank you, Pastor Jim of The Domain for Truth, for this post! Reader, please see the link within this post that takes you to many articles on Dr. Sproul’s ministry!
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.
