I want to share 3 quotes I have shared before but I sense they are going to become more and more relevant for us in this crazy world. They seem to me to be very prophetic.
“You will watch a generation of Christians set the Bible aside in an attempt to become more like Jesus. And stunningly it will sound completely plausible. This will perhaps the cleverest of all the devils’ schemes in your generation. Sacrifice truth for loves sake. And you will rise and fall based on whether you will sacrifice one for the other. Will you have the courage to live in the tension of both truth and love”
“Unconditional love does not equal unconditional approval of your behavior.”
“Our culture has accepted two huge lies. The first is that if you disagree with someone’s lifestyle you must fear or hate them. The second is that to love someone means you agree with everything they believe or do. Both are nonsense. You don’t have to compromise convictions to be compassionate.”
Let’s be the light and salt of the world as are called to do and be. Let’s stop the rot of compromise in the church and in our lives. Truth matters spoken in love
