    Guess who has said/promoted the following (listed below). You’ll win a signed copy of the “Reformation Study Bible” (not really, I am not that sick) and a double (amputation) imputation, if you’re right, of course. If you’re wrong, then it was simply a matter of predestination; not your fault, not mine, but the “sawvrinn gawd’s,” dear puppet.

    1) “All truth is God’s truth.” (Mm, no, it’s not; think about that for a while. What a silly thing to even think.)

    2) Promoted a raunchy movie that featured cursing, prostitution, and one that justified abortion. (Why would anyone promote filth like this?)

    3) Bemoaned (yes, bemoaned) the fact that Christians would not watch the movie that he was promoting at the time because “there is a growing taboo in the evangelical world against watching movies.” (Mm, no, there isn’t and wasn’t, but any born-again Christian would warn and speak out against filth, such as “Pulp Fiction,” for instance. Are we, as born-again believers not changed, new creations, separate from the worldly things? Did the Cross and what happened there, it’s significance and eternal effects and consequences, make no difference in our lives? Oops, then you might not be saved, little puppet.)

    4) A novel that this blasphemer wrote, “Johnny Come Home,” was filled with extreme raunchiness. Many pages were strewn with “blue” blasphemy, spoken by one of the characters. (Yes, when the heart is full of something, the heart has a irritating habit of dropping the truth from the mouth. Sure, writers’ characters do swear, but is there no difference between being of the world and being of God?)

    5) “All art bears witness to God.” This blasphemer went on to say, “For a Christian to despise art approaches blasphemy. A Christianity without art is a Christianity without beauty [which is] … a Christianity without Christ [which is] … no Christianity at all.” (This is too bizarre to even comment on; this guy has a huge problem).

    The answer: RC Sproul, SR, and he has said and promoted many more anti-biblical things and rubbish, much of which can be found on Paul’s blog (look it up; it’s worth it). Some of these things are just so anti-biblical that they make me sick simply thinking about them.

    But, please, remember, this is one of the “men God would raise up in the last days” a Calvinist ex-friend told me. My itchy right foot this time. God He ain’t stupid.

    ***Now if you believe I’m being too hard on this blasphemer and false prophet, investigate him for yourself, and start with his basic beliefs. You wouldn’t have to waste your time any more than that. Promise. So, do you still want that “Reformation Study Bible”? Of course not.

      We have Sproul stating straight up that the only reason Christ had any righteousness is because He kept the law perfectly. You have to actually listen to the vid clip about 10 times before you can begin to believe what you are hearing.

        That’s why I don’t hesitate calling him and his ilk blasphemers. Case=open, shut.
