  • What Will Heaven Be Like?

    from R.C. Sproul Nov 05, 2016 Category: R.C. Sproul

    When I was in seminary, I studied under an extremely learned professor who I was convinced at the time knew the answer to every possible theological question.

  • What Does It Mean to Believe?

    from R.C. Sproul Sep 24, 2016 Category: Articles

    I think the whole concept of faith is one of the most misunderstood ideas that we have, misunderstood not only by the world but by the church itself. Keep Reading
