R. Sproul

For (Martin) Luther, the sola of "Sola Scriptura" was inseparably related to the Scriptures' unique inerrancy. It was because popes could and did err and because councils could and did err that Luther came to realize the supremacy of Scripture. Luther did not despise church authority, nor did he repudiate church councils as having no value. His praise of the Council of Nicaea is noteworthy. Luther and the Reformers did not mean by "Sola Scriptura" that the Bible is the only authority in the church; rather, they meant tMore R. Sproul [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When God's justice falls, we are offended because we think God owes perpetual mercy. We must not take His grace for granted. We must never lose our capacity to be amazed by graceMore R. Sproul [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The most violent expression of God's wrath and justice is seen in the Cross. If ever a person had room to complain for injustice, it was Jesus. He was the only innocent man ever to be punished by God. If we stagger at the wrath of God, let us stagger at the Cross. Here is where our astonishment should be focused.More R. Sproul [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To say that God's sovereignty is limited by man's freedom is to make man sovereign.More R. Sproul [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Every sin is an act of cosmic treason, a futile attempt to dethrone God in His sovereign authority.More R. Sproul [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is imperative that the Christian, at the beginning of his pursuit to understand what true worship is, gets it clear that the object of our worship is to be God and God alone.More R. Sproul [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
One does not structure the church to meet the felt needs and desires of the tares. The purpose of corporate assembly, which has its roots in the Old Testament, is for the people of God to come together corporately to offer their sacrifices of praise and worship to God. So the first rule of worship is that it be designed for believers to worship God in a way that pleases God.More R. Sproul [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Seeking God? We have totally revised corporate worship services to be sensitive to "seekers." If worship were to be tailored for seekers, it would be directed exclusively to believers, for no one except believers ever seeks God (Rom. 3:9-12).More R. Sproul [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The modern movement of worship is designed to break down barriers between man and God, to remove the veil, as it were, from the fearsome holiness of God, which might cause us to tremble. It is designed to make us feel comfortable.More R. Sproul [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The real crisis of worship today is not that the preaching is paltry or that it's too drafty in church. It is that people have no sense of the presence of God, and if they have no sense of His presence, how can they be moved to express the deepest feelings of their souls to honor, revere, worship, and glorify God?More R. Sproul [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Holiness provokes hatred. The greater the holiness, the greater the human hostility toward it. It seems insane. No man was ever more loving than Jesus Christ. Yet even His love made people angry. His love was a perfect love, a transcendent and holy love, but HIs very love brought trauma to people. This kind of love is so majestic we can't stand it.More R. Sproul [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Why would the disciples invent a God whose holiness was more terrifying than the forces of nature that provoked them to invent a god in the first place?More R. Sproul [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is one thing to fall victim to the flood or to fall prey to cancer; it is another thing to fall into the hands of the living God.More R. Sproul [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
True faith always produces real conformity to Christ.More R. Sproul [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Was Luther crazy? Perhaps. But if he was, our prayer is that God would send to this earth an epidemic of such insanity that we too may taste of the righteousness that is by faith alone.More R. Sproul [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It’s dangerous to assume that because a person is drawn to holiness in his study that he is thereby a holy man. There is irony here. I am sure that the reason I have a deep hunger to learn of the holiness of God is precisely because I am not holy. I am a profane man—a man who spends more time out of the temple than in it. But I have had just enough of a taste of the majesty of God to want more. I know what it means to be a forgiven man and what it means to be sent on a mission. My soul cries for more. My soul needsMore R. Sproul [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The only works of righteousness that serve to justify a sinner are the works of Christ.More R. Sproul [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We are secure, not because we hold tightly to Jesus, but because He holds tightly to us.More R. Sproul [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To know that God knows everything about me and yet loves me is indeed my ultimate consolation.More R. Sproul [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
You have to stop thinking logically to argue that the universe came into being by itself, out of nothing.More R. Sproul [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Just as the normative standard for the good and for the true is God, so the ultimate standard of beauty is God.More R. Sproul [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Grace and mercy are never deserved.More R. Sproul [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When there’s something in the Word of God that I don’t like, the problem is not with the Word of God, it’s with me.More R. Sproul [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
God's grace is so powerful that it has the capacity to overcome our natural resistance to it.More R. Sproul [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Without God man has no reference point to define himself.More R. Sproul [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
