R.C. Sproul and the Election of Donald Trump

This month, we’re preparing to launch our first free course, Learn to Study R.C. Sproul with Logos (sign up here to get notified).

As I was preparing the course, I decided to use Logos’ powerful search functionality to search on sovereignty and discovered this powerful quote:

If you don’t like the president of the United States, remember that the One who cast the deciding ballot in his election was almighty God. Of course, God doesn’t sanction or endorse everything that the president does; neither is it the case that God turns the authority over to the president and says, “Go ahead and rule these people however you want.” Every king is subject to the laws of God and will be judged accordingly. It may be that the president is completely ungodly, but for reasons known to God alone, God has placed him in that seat of authority. – What Is the Relationship between Church and State?

The beauty of Sproul’s concept of sovereignty is that regardless of who wins the general election, that God is still sovereign, and part of that sovereignty includes judgment.
