The Feeding of the Righteous

In a sermon I heard recently by R.C. Sproul Jr., he gave a brilliant and emotional defense of paedocommunion. But beyond the splendid element of his analogy was that of Communion being a refreshment for God’s righteous warriors. Accordingly, Sproul mentions that the spiritual life is a war: the families of the righteous versus the broken families of the unrighteous. As in the Old Covenant, when God defended his people against the wicked Canaanites, God once again defends his people by feeding them and preparing them for the battle. In the middle of a war, when both armies crave for replenishment, God’s people alone receive the food and the drink that gives them ultimate victory.

    I was doing a search for “RC Sproul Jr” and “paedocommunion” and your site popped up. Thanks for the info you have here.

    Maybe you hadn’t heard but RC Sproul Jr was defrocked. It looks like one of the issues, but probably not a major issue, in his defrocking was his practice of paedocommunion in a non-paedocommunion denomination. It looks like he was deceitful with his denomination in the way he went about it.
