Round Up

The Doctrine of Hell – If you were to give me a Bible, a divine eraser, and ten minutes, I would take hell out of the Bible.

The Key To The Christian Life Comes Not From Trying Harder But From Enjoying More – Can fascination with God and delight in Jesus really help me overcome my failures? Can my life genuinely be changed? Can this truth really make a difference down in the gutter of lust and greed and pride and envy and shame where I live?

The Beauty of the Impassible God – Critics often contend that the doctrine of impassibility depicts God as an emotionless rock. But to teach that God is impassible is not to deny that God has an emotional life with cares, joys, loves, and so forth.

Quote:
I remember lecturing at Ohio State University, one of the largest universities in this country. I was minutes away from beginning my lecture, and my host was driving me past a new building called the Wexner Center for the Performing Arts.

He said, “This is America’s first postmodern building.”

I was startled for a moment and I said, “What is a postmodern building?”

He said, “Well, the architect said that he designed this building with no design in mind. When the architect was asked, ‘Why?’ he said, ‘If life itself is capricious, why should our buildings have any design and any meaning?’ So he has pillars that have no purpose. He has stairways that go nowhere. He has a senseless building built and somebody has paid for it.”

I said, “So his argument was that if life has no purpose and design, why should the building have any design?”

He said, “That is correct.”

I said, “Did he do the same with the foundation?”

All of a sudden there was silence.

You see, you and I can fool with the infrastructure as much as we would like, but we dare not fool with the foundation because it will call our bluff in a hurry.

– Ravi Zacharias

Brittle Clay in Tender Hands

Here is a 4 part message series from Ravi Zacharias of RZIM ministries. 

The idea of the potter shaping the clay sounds poetic. But sometimes the process isn’t so easy for the clay. God is always shaping us, but he often places a difficult call on our lives. That’s what happened to Jeremiah.
