#AskRC Live Twitter Event: August 2014 -

Answering theological questions from his students has been a continual commitment throughout Dr. R.C. Sproul’s ministry. Originally called “gabfests” by his early students and later, “Ask R.C.,” these sessions continue to take place at our conferences, on Renewing Your Mind, and online.

For the first time, with the help of his staff, Dr. Sproul used Twitter to answer your questions. Thank you to everyone who participated in this unique event. You can follow the conversation below:

If we saw Jesus in his resurrected, ascended glory, there would be no talk of, “Well, I’m more of the quiet type.” So what should we do when… Continue Reading via The Aquila Report
