Noted Reformed theologian and founder of Ligonier Ministries R.C. Sproul has been hospitalized due to breathing problems and as of Tuesday remains in critical condition.  On its website, Ligonier reported Dec. 3 that Sproul had been hospitalized on Dec. 2 because of “respiratory difficulties,” listing him as being “in guarded condition at the intensive care unit and receiving expert care and attention.” “The

doctors believe this is not pneumonia, but an exacerbation of his emphysema due to the flu so he has been put on a ventilator to help his breathing. Thank you for praying for his recovery,” noted the Ligonier blog entry.  He has remained in serious condition since then. On Dec. 8, Sproul was noted as having “less fluid on his lungs today than there was yesterday” but on Sunday, Ligonier reported that Sproul was “not improving as we had hoped.” READ MORE
