You can quote me on that (part 11)

Here are some more quotes. Not all are positive but all where interesting in some way. Reading them through again they are a bit of a mixed bag actually:

Steff Listern quoted Spurgeon about the Phoenician woman at the last Prayer and fasting. Can’t find the exact quote but its something like: “She asks and doesn’t get an answer so she reasons that he has not said no so all is well! Then she asks again and he speaks! She has word now from his lips and so is confident that works will follow! Then he calls her a dog. A dog she reasons is part of the family, and get crumbs from under the table!”

Elijah in the Old covenant  caused famine, called down fire, summoned bears to tear apart youths. In the New Covenant Elijah will restore the hearts of the fathers to the children and the children to their fathers. It all changes! It’s not judgment but reconciliation. (He emphasizes the discontinuity) Kris Vallotton

It seems to me to be very, very hard to come up with an atheistic explanation of conscience, any more than you could have a compass without a magnetic north. PETER HITCHENS

Hunger is an escort to the deeper things of God, You satisfy! Misty Edwards

When are my greatest moments of doubt? Often when I’m reading the Old Testament or indeed the Epistles of St. Paul. I do find them rather provoking towards feelings of, oh, no, do I really have to put up with this? PETER HITCHENS

When you tell God you love him he puts it on speaker phone” Bill Johnson

Mercy is not getting what you do deserve. Mercy is getting what you don’t deserve. If a policeman stops you for speeding and doesn’t give you a ticket – that’s mercy. If he stops you for speeding and gives you $1000 that’s grace. Kris Vallotton

“Christianity is not about God it’s being with God.” Joaquin Evans

“There is a divine, redemptive nuclear power in words.” Rob Bell

‘I had so many irons in the fire I put the fire out!!’ – J John

Religion looks in at the party through the window. From the cold street outside it makes a virtue of freezing to death. Jesus invites us in to the warm to eat and drink with him.   me:-)
