A Hero Goes Home: Adrian Rogers Dies

Along with so many orthodox Christians throughout the country, I mourn the passing today of Dr. Adrian Rogers. Dr. Rogers was a trailblazer in many ways, but the trails he uncovered and led us along were always back...back to the authority of Holy Scripture; back to the virtues of being obedient to the Lord Jesus rather than being dupes of a decadent culture; back to the uplifting of holiness, the sanctity of life, and the liberating power of Christ's sacrifice for sinners.

Dr. Rogers is enjoying his forever rewards now and I would not begrudge he or the Lord the sweetness of their fellowship today.

But, Lord, may I presume upon Your grace to ask You to recompense our loss on this side of the Jordan by raising up many more like-minded heroes to help us along? Thank You.
