Rick Warren
– Planting a church by attracting disgruntled believers is one of the stupidest ideas I’ve heard, for a dozen reasons.
– Pastor, you attract what you are. If you’re cranky, folks who love to argue and fight will fill the church. If you gossip, they will!
– Inventing a theology to justify my failure is sin. “People ruin themselves by their own stupid actions then blame God.” Pr. 19:3
– Pastor, God called you to feed and lead His sheep, not corral goats.

A W Tozer
– When I understand that everything happening to me is to make me more Christlike, it solves a great deal of anxiety.
– Nothing’s easier to talk about than surrendering ourselves and dying on the Cross; nothing’s harder than actually doing it.

J.C. Ryle
Holiness comes from Christ. It is the result of vital union with Him. It is the fruit of being a living branch of the true Vine.

C. S. Lewis
– You can’t really be so well-adjusted to your world if it ends by nailing you up to a stake of wood.
– Evil comes from the abuse of free will.
