LIGONIER MINISTRIES UNVEILED THE SPANISH RSB TO OVER 56,000 IN LATIN AMERICA
On Saturday, August 1, SRL invited Mr. Chris Larson, President of Ligonier Ministries, to officially unveil the Reformation Study Bible in Spanish. Dr. Sinclair Ferguson also addressed Latin America for the first time from Scotland. Dr. Ferguson taught on the ministry of the Holy Spirit. After Dr. Ferguson’s teaching, Pastor Sugel Michelen presented a lecture on the same theme. Mr. Matthew McGhee, general editor of the Spanish RBS, detailed information regarding the faithfulness of the RSB. Over ten years ago Dr. Acosta invited Dr. Burk Parsons to teach in Bogotá. At a meeting with pastors Dr. Parsons discovered that they had but one commentary Bible which they shared among themselves. He was deeply concerned regarding the need for a trustworthy study Bible in Spanish. He brought that concern to Dr. Sproul, and plans began to develop this dynamic resource in Spanish. This Bible greatly helps SRL to fulfill its reformation goal. If you were unable to attend the conference live, the video recording is available on YouTube at this link: https://youtu.be/Viihvl5g9rs
The Entire Bible Confirms the Doctrines of Grace
The panoramic view of the entire Bible was presented to Latin America in 24 hours. The main points and doctrines of each book and its relationship to other New Testament and Old Testament books were emphasized. SRL’s mission is to bring the Reformation to Latin America. During this study, the doctrines of grace, particularly the doctrines of the sovereignty of God, predestination and election, were highlighted in every book of the Bible. Thousands from all the countries in Latin America faithfully participated for 12 days. The most urgent question was “How do I know if I am elected?” The answer Dr. Acosta gave: If you believe and trust in Christ alone for your salvation, and you are producing fruit in a life of repentance, then you have been chosen by God. You are elected! Congratulations!
