Tim Keller – The Both/And of the Gospel
The 21st century church often polarizes itself into those who are culturally engaged, missionally minded and socially involved and those who emphasize the preservation and preaching of orthodox doctrine and evangelism. The former accuse the latter of truncating the story of God’s purposes in this world. The latter believe that in reaching for cultural relevance the former are letting go of Biblical truth. Both groups are right in their concerns and wrong in their response.

Our Sufficiency is from God

God doesn’t need super stars. What He needs are men and women who are putting their hand to what their heart prompts. And when you put your hand to what your heart prompts, something’s integrated, something’s ignited and what you’re doing when you put your hand to what your heart prompts is practicing the things that the Spirit of God is stirring in your heart. Practice these things.
~David Johnson

A nice, middle class, American Jesus

Great, great quote…

“A nice, middle class, American Jesus. A Jesus who doesn’t mind materialism and who would never call us to give away everything we have. A Jesus who would not expect us to forsake our closest relationships so that he receives all our affection. A Jesus who is fine with nominal devotion that does not infringe on our comforts, because, after all, he loves us just the way we are. A Jesus who wants us to be balanced, who wants us to avoid dangerous extremes, and who, for that matter, wants us to avoid danger altogether. A Jesus who brings us comfort and prosperity as we live our Christian spin on the American dream.” (13)

difference between Hollywood & British actor…

From David Coffey – a Brit addressing the Brady Lectures at Northern Seminary: “They say the difference between a Hollywood actor and a British actor is – the Hollywood actor will ask, “how will this script be modified to suit my strengths/personality? The British actor will ask, how can I do justice to what the author intended in this script?
The application of this to American Christianity is obvious.

It seems to me that people from the suburbs think

“It seems to me that people from the suburbs think, when they come into the city, they can act like idiots.”
