Biblical authority. Christ's view must become ours. The disciple is not above his teacher. It is inconceivable that a Christian who looks to Jesus as his Teacher and Lord should have a lower view of the Old Testament than he had. What is the sense in calling Jesus 'Teacher' and 'Lord'. and then disagreeing with him? We have no liberty to disagree with him. His view of Scripture must become ours. --- John R.W. Stott

Happiness does not depend on outward circumstances, but on the state of the heart. Praying and sinning will never live together in the same heart. Do nothing that you would not like God to see. --- Bishop J.C. Ryle

The McCarrick case has, for many, become the key to larger mysteries since his work helped shape today's American (Catholic) church. Now, accusations against him combine three major themes in this crisis -- the sexual abuse of children, conspiracies to hide that abuse and reports of an influential "gay lobby" in seminaries and church bureaucracies. --- Terry Mattingly

Word and Spirit. We must never divorce what God has married, namely his Word and his Spirit. The Word of God is the Spirit's sword. The Spirit without the Word is weaponless; the Word without the Spirit is powerless. --- John R. W. Stott

By far the biggest result of the study is that 88 percent of the participants report finding lasting freedom. --- Stephen Black, Firestone Ministries

It costs something to be a real Christian, according to the standard of the Bible. There are enemies to be overcome, battles to be fought, sacrifices to be made, an Egypt to be forsaken, a wilderness to be passed through, a cross to be carried, a race to be run. Conversion is not putting a person in an arm-chair and taking them easily to heaven. It is the beginning of a mighty conflict, in which it costs much to win the victory --- J. C. Ryle

Dear Brothers and Sisters
July 20, 2018

SEX, specifically homoerotic sex, has been on the agenda of so many general conventions of The Episcopal Church that I have simply lost count. It was more of the same at GC79 in Austin, Texas this past week.

The suicide crisis in the USA is in part a crisis of meaning. Recent changes in American society, greater detachment and a weaker sense of belonging, are increasing our existential despair. Although we try and distract ourselves (most of the time nowadays successfully) we realize that everyone we know and care about, including the person we care about the most, ourselves, will die. --- Marcus Roberts

It may seem a bit harsh to modern ears -- and to namby-pamby Christian ears -- to speak of the culture of death and the demonic. But the two go together hand in hand, and they both accurately describe the proabortion worldview and sentiment. --- Bill Muehlenberg

Presiding Bishop Curry has gotten his "radical inclusion" and "good disagreement" lines down pat, even as he continues to spend millions of dollars suing congregations out of their property in South Carolina and Fort Worth. Surely the "good news" that PB Curry is sending to conservatives remaining in TEC is: "believe what you will, but don't try to leave or you'll see how far good disagreement stretches." --- Stephen Noll
