R.C. Sproul--The Movie Star!!!

The Lord has graced us by allowing us to live in the day and age of technology. Technology can be both detrimental and useful for the Gospel. Many of our modern day theologians have capitalized on the advantages of technology. R. C. Sproul has particularly made use of technology by parading his beautiful face on his website. That's right, you heard it, you can now see Sproul in his GQ--Kenish beauty heralding the Gospel at www.ligonier.org. I do not agree with everything Sproul says, but anyone who does not cherish the gift God has given us in Sproul is overly picky and in need of a good old fashion piece of humble pie (and a big boy spankin). He is not the Pope, but he is mightily gifted of God. For those of you who are intimidated by theologians--Sproul has the ability to communicate the most complicated truths in simple terms. I seriously encourage all of you who read this to watch as many of his 20 min lessons as you possibly can. Test everything to the Scriptures, but enjoy this gift that God has given you. It will not take you long to come to the realization that, "Hey, I guess I have been wrong all these years, not all theologians are ugly."

Jimmy,

I don't mean to burst your bubble, but I've met Dr. Sproul in person and I'll just say that the pic on his site has been doctored!

I would'nt say he's an ugly man, but I will say that he has aged and the air brush on that pic has done him wonders.

Digressing from his appearance, I too agree with you that Sproul, while not the most profound theologian today, has a comprehensive ability to clearly articulate egg headed theology to non-eggheaded people.

He can take the issue of penal substitution, that most people would associate with some sexual immorality, and is able to teach it in such a way that is most glorious and helpful to the average lay person.

Jimmy is right, if you're reading this, then go to his site and learn from him. He is a gift from God to the church that you should not neglect.
