Frankly, I'm pushing for Donald Trump to round out this troika.
Except for his funeral. As I understand, each president can make arrangements for his own funeral ahead of time.

Sproul was a devout Calvinist and focused much of his publications on discussing the sovereignty of God, Christian living, intelligent design, and apologetics.

In 1978 he also signed the Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy, which affirmed the traditional view of biblical inerrancy.
