Quality Quotes

“Could it be that we are so bent on having immediate, measurable
results that we have defined the gospel and evangelism in a way
that enables people to understand and respond even without spiritual
comprehension and heart change? I fear this is largely why we are
so weak as a church. The very foundations have been laid wrongly.” –John
Piper


“What
is at stake is authenticity. . . . Sooner or later Christians tire
of public meetings that are profoundly inauthentic, regardless of
how well (or poorly) arranged, directed, performed. We long to meet,
corporately, with the living and majestic God and to offer him the
praise that is his due.” – D. A. Carson

“What the Arminian wants to do is to arouse man’s
activity: what we want to do is to kill it once for all—to show him
that he is lost and ruined, and that his activities are not now at all
equal to the work of conversion; that he must look upward. They seek to
make the man stand up: we seek to bring him down, and make him feel
that there he lies in the hand of God, and that his business is to
submit himself to God, and cry aloud, ‘Lord, save, or we perish.’ We
hold that man is never so near grace as when he begins to feel he can
do nothing at all. When he says, ‘I can pray, I can believe, I can do
this, and I can do the other,’ marks of self-sufficiency and arrogance
are on his brow.”– C. H. Spurgeon
