A Quote by Dr. Robert Gordon Sproul on democracy, men, needs, and survival

Autocracies may survive for intermittent periods with populations of "yes men," but democracies need a perennially renewed supply of "know men."

A Quote by Dr. Robert Gordon Sproul on christianity, church, disillusionment, existence, experience, failure, inspiration, losing, nations, and world

We have the peculiar spectacle of a nation which, to a limited extent, practices Christianity without actively believing in Christianity. We are asked to turn to the Church for our enlightenment, but when we do this we find that the voice of the Church is not inspired. The voice of the Church today is the echo of our own voices. And the result of this experience, already manifest, is disillusionment. . . . The way out is the sound of a voice, not our voice, but the voice coming from somewhere not ourselves, in the existence of which we cannot disbelieve. It is the task of the Pastors to hear this voice, cause us to hear it, and to tell us what it says. If they cannot hear it, or if they fail to tell us what it says, we laymen are totally lost. Without it we are no more capable of saving the world than we are capable of creating it in the first place.
