Great Quotes: a bit from everywhere.

"I might believe in the Redeemer if His followers looked more Redeemed." Fredrick Nietczshe

"In some sense we are all hypocrites in transition." Erwin McManus

"Preach the gospel everyday, use words only when necessary." St. Francis of Assissi

"Out of 100 men, one will read the Bible, the other 99 will read the Christian." D.L. Moody

"Any concept of grace that makes us feel more comfortable sinning is not biblical grace. God's grace never encourages us to live in sin, on the contrary, it empowers us to say no to sin and yes to truth." Randy Alcorn

"Jesus reserved his hardest words for the hidden sins of hypocrisy, pride, greed and legalism." Philip Yancey

"Rather than growing bigger churches we should be concerned with growing bigger Christians." Rich Mullins

"Cheap grace is the deadly enemy of our church. We are fighting today for costly grace." Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Reply to critics: I like the way I do it better than the way you don't.

"We are saved by faith alone. However, faith that saves is never alone...it is always accompanied by works." Martin Luther

"Many Christians are unthinkably horrified when a real sinner is suddenly discovered among the righteous. So we remain alone with our sin, living in lies and hypocrisy...He who is alone with his sins is utterly alone. Dietrich Bonhoeffer

"Enemy occupied territory--that is what the world is. Christianity is the story of how the rightful King has landed in disguise, and is calling us all to take part in a great campaign of sabotage." CS Lewis

Great quotes. I still wonder why men like MacLaren, Bell, and Jones do not formulate a core set of beliefs that will satisfy the orthodox crowd, and then continue with the direction they are going?

I wonder...

Rick,

I think that the answer is simple... no one can please everyone... even when Brian or Tony say they agree on some point of orthodoxy and then do continue... there is always someone who will say they have not done this...

Which they have... many times... and are still doing...

Blessings,
