Thought-provoking Sermon! Very strong message to make me think about how my life is directly related to God's grace. I don't want to take
my daily walk with the Lord without daily thanks to Him. Praise the Lord!
What a blessing your ministry is! I am so thankful to God for the great impact that the ministry of R.C. Sproul has had on our little church, Grace Fellowship in Bradenton, FL & my own personal spiritual growth. Our pastor recommends R.C. often for our people to read and to listen to and we do! We've brought groups to Ligonier Conferences and visited St. Andrews. We've used R.C.'s books as resources in our Bible Study preparation and God has mightily blessed our hearts. May the Lord continue to use R.C. and the Ligonier ministry to His glory and the spiritual good of many, as He has done for us! Thank you for your faithfulness to carefully preach the Word of God!
Absolutely Amazing Series This series has been such a tremendous blessing and a help. Thank you Dr. Sproul! I have learned much and been greatly benefited by your outstanding teaching. Truly, ideas have consequences!
Great Sermon! A timely and well aimed message for the culture we inhabit to-day. As a recovering Pharisee myself how i pray that God would grant me a heart of extravagance. Bless you Dr.Sproul, always a joy to listen to your preaching
Great Sermon! I really appreciated this lecture. However, in reference to your comments regarding the Presupositional approach to apologetics:
1. My understanding of the agrument for scripture is framed in such a way, from the presupositional position, in order to avoid any appearance of "neutrality". That is, we presupose the inspiration of scripture when dealing with an unbeliever thereby avoiding the error of answering a fool according to his folly.
2. The Westminster Confession makes it clear that the truth and divinity of scripture can only be recieved by a mind made receptive by the Holy Spirit.
The unbeliever is not in a neutral or receptive condition to believe or accept the truths of scripture and will always, apart from the grace of God, reject whatever argument presented that contradicts his unbelieving worldview.
I belive this why presupositionalists, for the most part, discourage the use of traditional arguments.
