A friend in need…

I went to a small Christian college in western PA. When I arrived - the only one from my area of Massachusetts - there was excitement about some kid whose dad was a famous preacher being in our class. That kid turned out to be the fun loving religion and Econ major named RC Sproul Junior. 

I didn’t know him well, but what I knew was that he was very fun, had a wicked sense of humor, was pretty smart, and was and still is a genuinely nice guy. 

Fast forward to today… RC is still a fun loving nice guy. He grew up to be a preacher - and a good one!  He’s had some setbacks, but so have a lot of people. It’s hard being a famous preacher’s kid with the same name as your dad. People expect more and when you make a mistake, the vultures come out of every corner. If he were a Hollywood celebrity or a senator, nobody would bat an eye. Now he needs help. If you can, pray. Please read his blog. Listen to his podcasts. If you feel so moved, give.

RC is a good guy who loves God and his family. His sins are forgiven by God - but not the Christian community he wants to serve. That’s really sad…
