  • I’m Happy. I Don’t Need Jesus.”

    from R.C. Sproul Jul 15, 2017 Category: Articles

    I hear that from a lot of folks. They say to me, "I just don’t feel the need for Christ." As if Christianity were something that were packaged and sold through Madison Avenue! That what we're trying to communicate to people is "Here's something that's going to make you feel good, and everybody needs a little of this in their closet or in their refrigerator," as if it were some commodity that's going to add a dash of happiness to our lives.   Keep Reading
  • Redefining What a Bible College Is and Can Be

    Reformation Bible College (RBC) is striving to redefine what a Bible college is and can be.

  • Should I Feel God’s Presence in My Life?

    from R.C. Sproul Jul 01, 2017 Category: Articles

    This question brings to mind an experience I had early in my ministry. In fact, I’d only been ordained a few months and was teaching at a college. One church had a minister who was much loved by his congregation; he had served there for twenty-five years but had become critically ill. The man was at the point of death. I was supplying the pulpit for several months and helping the congregation deal with this tragedy in their midst.   Keep Reading
