The Quotable Round-Up #73

tpn6bjcHowdy day to all! I hope you’re having a great day as you dive in this brand new collection of quotes! This time we are featuring a mix bag of quotes from John Crotts upcoming book “Graciousness” and “Love Your God With All Your Mind” by J. P. Moreland. And if you got stoked with these quotes, please get the books at your nearest Christian bookstore or on Amazon.

“When two people disagree about the Scriptures, one of them, whether right or wrong about the interpretation of a Bible passage, can still “win” by intimidation. The Lord Jesus does not smile at His children who sin to win.”
— John Crotts

“As Christians go about their daily work in the world, they are to walk wisely. Their heads are to be up; their eyes are to be open. Because the time of every life is limited, Christians need to take advantage of opportunities to prepare other people for the life to come. Seeking these opportunities in the world takes both wisdom and grace. As believers interact with outsiders to the faith, they are called to relate to them graciously as God has related graciously to them.”
— John Crotts

“The Bible’s standard for speech is incredibly high. Every word that comes across a Christian’s lips must be infused with grace in order to build up the people who hear. There are no vacations or even coffee breaks permitted in order to unleash harsh, critical, unkind, or harmful speech—a believer’s mouth must always be on duty, speaking good words in good ways at the right time”
— John Crotts

“The faithful Christian life cannot be lived merely with zeal for truth but must also cultivate corresponding graciousness.”
— John Crotts

“God cares about more than just the words you say. He also cares about how you say those words. It is not enough always to say the truth; you must also say the truth in love. The Lord Jesus Christ provides the greatest model of a person with zeal both to know and to apply the truth of God.”
— John Crotts

“We need to remember the consequences of abandoning a fundamental commitment to truth and reason. A people that does not care about these will be easily led to behave in certain ways by rhetoric, image, narcissistic self-infatuation, and so on. This is extremely dangerous. Further, if our allegiance to Christianity is not based on the conviction that it is true and reasonable, then we are treating the faith as a mere means to some self-serving pragmatic end, and that demeans the faith.”
— J. P. Moreland

“There is absolutely nothing wrong with admitting you don’t know something or that you’re currently inadequately equipped to think a topic through. What is unacceptable, however, is running from this fact and thereby giving up on intellectual and spiritual growth in the interest of avoiding embarrassment or possible rejection. We all need help in this area, and we should care enough about truth and reason to give that help. Even if we agree with one another’s conclusions, we need to dedicate ourselves for Christ’s sake to refusing to allow each other to reach those conclusions with poor argumentation and sloppy treatment of data.”
— J. P. Moreland

Book Review: Ba’t Di Ako Rich? by William B. Girao

io5yxynMy wife bought this book yesterday and I feel hesitant to check it out. With the title “Ba’t Di Ako Rich?” (Why Am I Not Rich?) I thought Pastor Girao succumbed to the prosperity gospel. That’s why I ignore it in National Bookstore and PCBS. However reading the sub title “and other questions about everyday faith” it dawned to me that this is a Q and A sort of a book.

It was previously published with a different title (the former title wasn’t that catchy) and instead of 37 questions they narrowed it to 20 (which I think represents Pinoy Christian most asked questions). The book aims to answer questions that are very important to the Christian walk. These questions will assist Christians to live out their faith without hindrance. Written in Taglish, this book is surely easily understood by ordinary Pinoys.

Checking out the list of questions we find the usual (but nevertheless important like homosexuality, lust, horoscopes etc.,) topic discussed. Stand out topics for me are Filipino time and God’s will.  These 20 questions represent as 20 chapters and in every chapters/questions there are sub questions to further analyze the topic.

What I like with this book is the topic of giving time for God in the form of quite time, prayer and attending church extended to 5 chapters (16-20). For me this is crucial for the Christian walk and will further help the inquiring Christian.

If you want a book that will answer those questions leaves you wondering how to please God, get this book. “Ba’t Di Ako Rich?” is a helpful book and will encourage you walk by faith everyday.

My verdict:

4.5 out of 5

The Quotable Round-Up #72

tpn6bjcHappy New Year to all!!! To jump start this year here’s couple of quotes from J. P. Moreland’s book “Love Your God With All Your Mind”. May these quotes be your guide this year on what books you’ll buy and read. God bless and Enjoy Jesus!

“Have you been afraid to stand up for Christ when the opportunity presented itself? Or when you have done so, have you come off as shallow, reactionary, and defensive? If so, there is nothing magical about changing your life in this area. First, as with every other area of life, you have to study hard and gain an intellectual grasp of the issues so you can be confident and courageous. Second, you need to be sure that Jesus Christ is the Lord of your life; that is, you are to serve His name, not make one for yourself.”

“We must develop intelligent Christians; that is, Christians who have the mental training to see issues clearly, make important distinctions carefully, and weigh various factors appropriately. If we are not really planning to see this happen, then at the end of the day, what we are really saying is that a deep understanding of the Scripture, creeds, and theology of Christianity just doesn’t matter that much.”

“Is it any wonder that we Christians started the first universities and have planted schools and colleges everywhere our missionaries have gone? Is it any wonder that science began in Christian Europe because of the belief that the same rational God who made the human mind also created the world so the mind would be suited to discern the world’s rational structure placed there by God? God is certainly not a cultural elitist, and He does not love intellectuals more than anyone else. But it needs to be said in the same breath that ignorance is not a Christian virtue if those virtues mirror the perfection of God’s own character.”

“Individual rights are important, and, for the Christian, they are grounded in the image of God and not in the state. In other words, the Christian believes that human rights are derived from the image of God in us; they do not ultimately come from the state.”

“Religion is now viewed by many as a placebo or emotional crutch precisely because that is how we often pitch the gospel to unbelievers.”
“Today, we share the gospel primarily as a means of addressing felt needs. We give testimonies of changed lives and say to people that if they want to become better parents or overcome depression or loneliness, then Christ is the answer for them. As true as this may be, such an approach to evangelism is inadequate for two reasons. First, it does not reach people who may be out of touch with their feelings. Consequently, if men in our culture are, in general, less in touch with their feelings than women, this approach will not reach men effectively. Second, it invites the response, “Sorry, but I don’t have a need.”

“The church must train high school students for the intellectual life they will encounter at college. As theologian Carl Henry put it, “Training the mind is an essential responsibility of the home, the church, and the school. Unless evangelicals prod young people to disciplined thinking, they waste — even undermine — one of Christianity’s most precious resources.”
