Only God is able to humble us without humiliating us and to exalt us without flattering us.
Jesus does not offer to make bad people good but to make dead people alive.
When secularization has had its full sway, it will leave a generation devoid of shame. And if you show me a generation that lacks shame, I will show you a generation that is monstrous in its appetite... never satisfied.
There are so many needs in the world, and our hearts cannot carry them all. You must walk to the priorities God has set before you.
I think the reason we sometimes have the false sense that God is so far away is because that is where we have put him. We have kept him at a distance, and then when we are in need and call on him in prayer, we wonder where he is. He is exactly where we left him.
Truth cannot be sacrificed at the altar of pretended tolerance. Real tolerance is deference to all ideas, not indifference to the truth.
In today's society, looking good and feeling good often trumps doing good and being good. And some people don't know the difference anymore.
Pleasure without God, without the sacred boundaries, will actually leave you emptier than before. And this is biblical truth, this is experiential truth. The loneliest people in the world are amongst the wealthiest and most famous who found no boundaries within which to live. That is a fact I've seen again and again.
A man rejects God neither because of intellectual demands nor because of the scarcity of evidence. A man rejects God because of a moral resistance that refuses to admit his need for God.
We have a right to believe whatever we want, but not everything we believe is right.
