Apparently they have an urgent need for over $15 million. What is this pressing need going to fund?
- A new "Reformation" academy to teach people the right way
- Upgrades to Ligonier's headquarters building
- A new library building
- Paying off existing debt incurred for, you guessed it, property
Good news, they have already raised $6,000,000! I guess that is good news.
I love me some Reformed theology and I own a bunch of Sproul's books but when I look at the webpage asking for money to pay for what they are doing, I have to ask a question. Is that the most pressing need in the world for the church to address with limited resources? How many Bibles would $15 million buy? How many missionaries would it support? How many orphans could be adopted? If an adoption costs $20,000 then the money Ligonier is raising for a building would pay for 780 orphans to be adopted and raised in Christian homes. Isn't that a more pressing need than yet another set of expensive church buildings? 780 children taken out of orphanages and given a chance at a home and a family. Those kids might have kids some day and perhaps raise them in Christian homes. How many lives would be touched and changed in a real way by that kind of money? That is a proper monument to Christ, not yet another Bible school and ministry headquarter.
