“I believe one of the reasons why so many today are rejecting what Christians have to say is because they sense that a lot of Christian talk nowadays isn’t authentic. We as believers today don’t do a good enough job of thinking and listening before we speak. We are quick to tell people that ‘Jesus […]

“The idea that service to God should have only to do with a church altar, singing, reading, sacrifice, and the like, is without a doubt the worst trick of the devil. How could the devil have led us more effectively astray than by the narrow conception that service to God takes place only in a […]

“Sometimes, we’re quick to dismiss constructive criticism because of who it’s coming from. Whether we like it or not, there are times where our ‘enemies’ are actually RIGHT about us… …and we need to be humble enough to admit that God can use someone who’s against us for our good.” ~ Skye Jethani

“How do we relate to God? Do we seek Him mainly in times of trouble, searching for answers in our distress…but ignoring Him during our seasons of celebration? Are we like the Israelites of old? Easily swayed by the idols of our age, including such things as busyness, success, and influence?” ~ Amy Boucher Pye

“I think the overriding value in a lot of evangelical churches is to set the bar as low as possible in order to get as many as we can to engage. And because we keep the bar so low, we never really expect much from church attendees. We don’t expect that they’ll be trained in […]

“If we’re honest, most of us have a double standard when it comes to God and the problem of evil. We are quick to complain about the problem of evil when others are doing evil that affects us…but we don’t have that same complaint about the evil we freely choose to do that brings us […]

“My advice to the American church would be simply this: you don’t have to be so scared. Sometimes you can lose legislative force and political force, and yet not lose the force of the gospel. Classical historians are still baffled at how the early church completely transformed the Roman Empire with no political or legislative […]

“When you’ve been raised in or around the church, it’s very easy to take in a whole lot of head knowledge and intellectualize your faith. It’s easy to follow a bunch of Christian rules and just strive to be a better person. There comes a point, however, when you look deeper and realize that this […]

“Much of the American church has abandoned the idea that people’s desires need to be transformed. Instead, we try to figure out what people desire, and then we tell them that Jesus is the way to get it. That’s how we get people to come to our churches. But we rarely get to the place […]

“The world doesn’t properly learn about God by watching Christian movies or shows…the world learns about God by watching Christians. And the notion that we can live any kind of way, but make a really good movie and it have the effect of leading people to Christ…is pretty darn silly.” ~ Phil Vischer

“There’s a lot of talk about what it means to be a radical Christian. The most radical thing any Christian can do is walk intimately with God, speaking and listening to him every day.” ~ Brandon Adams

Think About It…

“The fruit of the Spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, etc.) is impossible to manifest by yourself. These things only come about in the context of relationship. That’s why Jesus sent out His disciples 2 by 2…that’s why He sends the church out as a body. Because He’s not just revealed by you or me individually. […]
