Dr. Bahnsen The "Discipler"

It pleased God, in the mystery of His providence, to raise up a doubly-gifted man, in the person of Greg L Bahnsen, for the benefit of His people in this generation. That same mysterious providence also purposed to call that servant home at an early age. "The Lord gives, and the Lord takes away, blessed be the name of the Lord." Robert E. Lee, a man acquainted with such mysteries, observed: "The truth is this; The march of Providence is so slow and our desires so impatient, the work of progress is so immense and our means of aiding is so feeble, the life of humanity is so long, that of the individual so brief, that we often tend to see only the ebb of the advancing war and are discouraged. It is history that teaches us to hope."
