Misc. Quotes

"'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength'...'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no other commandment greater than these."
- Jesus Christ

"None of us keeps the Great Commandment for five minutes. We may think that we do in a surface way, but on a moment's reflection it is clear that we don't love God with our whole heart or our whole mind or our whole strength. We don't love our neighbor as we love ourselves. We may do everything in our power to avoid thinking about this at a deep level, but there is always that nagging sense in the back of our minds to accuse us of the certain knowledge that, in fact, we violate the Great Commandment every day. Like Isaiah, we also know that no one else keeps the Great Commandment either."
- R.C. Sproul, The Holiness of God, p. 88

"Adultery isn't evil because it's naughty; it's evil because it's blasphemous - it gives a wrong picture of Christ and the Church."
- Russell Moore, 1/26/07

"For God to take a self-effacing posture would be to deny the reality of who he really is."
- Bruce Ware, Sunday School Class at Clifton, 1/28/07

- Bruce Ware, SS, 1/28/07

- David Sills, Sunday AM sermon at Clifton, 1/28/07

"A missionary is someone who never gets used to the sound of pagan footsteps on their way to a Christ-less eternity."
- David Sills, AM Sermon, 1/28/07
