  • Honoring the Living

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Jan 21, 2012 Category: Articles

    There is, in all honesty, a constant tension when dealing with a terminal illness between giving up and facing facts. As I have noted earlier, during my beloved's nine month battle with leukemia her most frequent question to me was "I can get better, can't I?" Giving up hope is giving up, and neither of us wanted that. We do indeed serve a God who gave Hezekiah a new lease, who can make dry bones live and so from one perspective it isn't over until it's over. That doesn't mean, however, that we can't at least begin to discern what is more likely than not by reading test results. Keep Reading
  • We Have Met the Enemy

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Jan 14, 2012 Category: Articles

    Though I am optimistic about the long-term future, believing that the nations will in fact be discipled, and the kingdom will cover the earth the way the water covers the seas, it's an ugly world out there.

  • My Better Half

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Jan 07, 2012 Category: Articles

    Children, and their parents, crave stability. When their world is rocked by change, they are comforted by that which remains the same. I have been reminding my children of late that the loss of their mother, for all the pain, doesn't mean that everything has changed. Indeed when I put my littles to bed each night I, as I have always done, remind them of these bedrock truths, "Daddy loves you. Mommy loves you. Daddy and Mommy love each other. And Jesus loves you." These are the unchanging truths they can always count on, the solid ground on which they walk. We that are left behind are still together. And I am still me. Keep Reading
