Reflections

“So which shall we choose? Experience or truth? The left wing of an airplane, or the right? Study or service? Evangelism or discipleship? The front wheels of a car, or the rear? Subjective knowledge or objective knowledge? Faith or obedience?”

“Damn all false antitheses to hell, for they generate false gods, they perpetuate idols, they twist and distort our souls, they launch the church into violent pendulum swings whose oscillations succeed only in dividing brothers and sisters in Christ.”

“The truth is that Jesus Christ is Lord of all- of the truth and of our experience. The Bible insists that we take every thought captive to make it obedient to Christ.” (D. A. Carson Becoming Conversant With The Emerging Church: Understanding a Movement and Its Implications)

One thought on “Reflections

  1. Amen,
    My prayer is that the Lord God begin calling out the fire tested ones who will in pure humility and love, tirelessly, fearlessly, and uncompromisingly declare TRUTH. The whisper of False Passivity has mired the image of Christ to the point that so many are fearful of speaking the truth in the confidence of the Lord because of the potential threat of loss of social acceptance.
