QUOTE(s) of the WEEK

“Here’s a side to the Christmas story that isn’t often told: those soft little hands, fashioned by the Holy Spirit in Mary’s womb, were made so that nails might be driven through them…..Jesus was born to die.” John MacArthur, God With Us

“Just because you can’t see or imagine a good reason why God might allow something to happen doesn’t mean there can’t be one.” – Timothy Keller

Be a Thinker….  “In order to discover truth it is necessary to coldly dissect and examine all of our prejudices and inherent biases to ensure we receive unbiased answers. This takes effort. It is always easier to simply accept the ideas presented to us than to question the status quo.” – Author, Stephen McAndrew

QUOTE(s) of the WEEK

“If we submit everything to reason our religion will be left with nothing mysterious or supernatural. If we offend the principles of reason our religion will be absurd and ridiculous . . . There are two equally dangerous extremes: to exclude reason; to admit nothing but reason.” ― Blaise Pascal

When Mark Twain said, “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt,” he may very well have had the following scripture in mind: “There is more hope for a fool than for someone who speaks without thinking.” (Proverbs 29:20 NLT)
