"It probably won’t surprise you to learn that no one has taught me more about the Bible and its theology than R.C. Sproul. And it shouldn’t surprise you to learn that no one has taught me more about mercy ministry than R.C. Sproul. Having worked for R.C. going on twelve years, I have witnessed, firsthand, one man’s faith working itself out in love. As the testimonies of his wife and children reveal, his theology of grace sustains his concern for the hungry, the widow, and the orphan. Appropriately, his theology informs his practice, as should ours."
In this introductory article to the December issue of Tabletalk, an issue that looks at mercy ministry, Burk Parsons speaks of his debt to R.C. Sproul in his understanding of what comprises Truly Reformed Theology.
