Food for Thought

"The ancient Christian church was composed mostly of humble folk for whom the fact of having been adopted as heirs of the King of Kings was a source of great joy. This was expressed in their worship, in their art, in their life together, and in their valiant deaths. The daily life of most of these Christians took place in the drab routine in which the poor in all societies must live. But they rejoiced in the hope of a new light that would destroy the dark injustice and idolatry of their society."

Food for thought

When faith is unhealthy, it is generally the processing of beliefs that is dysfunctional rather than the actual beliefs

God's plan of salvation does not conform to the world's priorities. In fact, it seems foolish. Yet in reality eternal salvation is more valuable than all fame, wealth, and success pursued by the world.

God uses what is considered foolish and despised in this world to reveal His truth, so that He alone will receive the glory.

The message of the cross is the gospel, the Good News about Christ's death and resurrection for our sins. The gospel penetrates to the core of self-centeredness.

For those who exalt self, this message sounds absurd, but for those who bow humbly in faith, it becomes the power that is able to snatch them from death and impart eternal life.

Quote of the Day

"Throughout the course of present history down to the present day there persist this chronic temptation to reduce God to a human dimension to express God in clear ideas...Human reason seeks to understand everything and reduce everything to its own conceptual's a noble enterprise but in so doing we rob God of God's otherness and confine God to a world of our own mental limits...."
