Rick Warren

– Discernment is telling the difference between right and almost right.

D. A. Carson
You are not what you think you are, but what you think, you are.

– First a Christian, then a Protestant, then a Calvinist, then a complementarian, then a credobapist, then a Baptist.

It is a wretched bastardization of our goals when we want to win glory for ourselves instead of for Him.

– To ask that God’s love should be content with us as we are is to ask that God should cease to be God.
