Where’s The Love?

“What I notice a lot every day in the Christian spheres of social media is just how incredibly adept we evangelicals are at doctrinal criticism, cultural rebuke, theological analysis, biblical exegesis, apologetic and ethical debates, pithy spiritual bon mots, religious advice, and of course the use of quotations from Christian leaders present and past. But what seems less prevalent is love for Jesus.”~ Jared C.

"Part of the issue with how we do church today is the way we've connected church leadership with the ability to sell books, to draw crowds, and to get invited to all the major conferences. We've essentially commodified ministry." ~ Katelyn Beaty

"No church can truly be the church if its pastor or congregation are unwilling to speak hard truths to each other and to themselves. To think of the pastorate as primarily a helping profession, and the church as only a therapeutic community whose main goal is to make us feel better about ourselves... ...instead of giving people what they actually need to be healthy... ...is

"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 just isn't working...and that it's actually not supposed to work

"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 where we point out that what we should desire most

"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

"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. It's in the relationship of believers that the love of

"The fact that God gives us the freedom to make choices doesn't diminish His sovereignty or authority. God, in His sovereignty, didn't ordain which choices you would make, but rather ordained that you would be free to make them. Anyone who is not sovereign would be afraid to do this." ~ A.W. Tozer

"I don't believe in 'works-salvation'...the idea that you have to earn salvation from God. God gives salvation as a free gift to those who will accept it. But I do believe in 'works-damnation'. It takes really hard work to reject God's truth and exchange it for lies." ~ Leighton Flowers

"The irony within the tradition of the American church is that we talk all the time about having a personal relationship with Jesus...and yet we spend very little time teaching people how to actually have one." ~ Skye Jethani

"I think in many cases today, we've actually made our goals and dreams into idols. We'll pursue our dreams to the detriment of our relationship with Jesus. Jesus didn't say 'take up your cross, and follow your dreams'...just saying." ~ Phil Vischer
