Day Five Swimming In Shallow Waters Whether you have already found your partner or you're still 'sleeping,' you will need to love your partner. One of the challenges we live with is the reality of a world that has adopted a very shallow concept of love. This concept is spread through music, movies, reality TV, magazines, pop culture and pretty much every communication medium. It has a wide appeal because it caters to our selfish interests and quite often it places the responsibility of making a relationship work on the other person. Godly love on the other hand hinges on sacrifice. This love was perfectly exemplified by the life, and quite clearly the death, of Jesus. In no other worldview is there a cross and its staggering implications. Ravi Zacharias, in his book 'Jesus Among Other God's,' talks about Napoleon Bonaparte, that great conqueror of civilized Europe. One day he summoned Count Montholon and asked of him, "Can you tell me who Jesus Christ was?" When the Count declined, Napoleon went on to det ...
The world is circumscribing the boundary around ideas by assaulting the imagination of this generation.we are manufacturing emotions without right thinking any more.Even music today is with picture behind it and mostly the reaction to the sight leads you to entertainment by imagination that gives you all kind of false hints and leaves you emptier . In our imagination evil is more attracting than good but in reality good is much more attracting than evil.Please give your children the discipline of well Reading that leads to Right thinking and Right Imagination. -Ravi Zacharias

Today we live with Alice in Wonderland, where up is down, and down is up, and little in the world makes logical sense. Nowhere is this more evident than the twisted logic used by progressives to literally hijack the “establishment clause” in the 1st Amendment, and then use it to establish a religion of their own. The clause is very straight forward: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion…” In order to understand its original meaning, we must know the definitions of the key words as they were used during the time period when the Constitution was written. The most accurate source we have for these definitions is Webster’s 1828 Dictionary. It defines several of the key words in the clause as follows: Respecting: 1. Participle present tense Regarding; having regard to; relating to. Establishment (as in, “to establish”): 1. To set and fix firmly or unalterably; to settle permanently. 2. To found permanently; to erect and fix or settle; as, to establish a colony or a ...

God is like the light, prosperity is like the shadow. If you face the light and walk towards the light, the shadow will follow. If you turn your back to the light and chase the shadow you will never catch up with it (quote from Ravi Zacharias) (fyi he ain't talk financial btw); just sayin'.

If you'd like to read an uplifting and amazing story that occurred after WWII, google "It Happened on the Brooklyn Subway." A man was reading a Hungarian newspaper on the subway and God linked together an amazing number of "coincidences" to reunite him with his wife who had been in Auschwitz. I heard Ravi Zacharias speak about this incident on the radio yesterday. What an amazing demonstration of God's love and ability to accomplish things that defy all odds.

Let My People Think w/ Ravi Zacharias @ 7 - Who is God? Part 2 of 2 One could make an argument that “Why God?” and “Where are you God?” are two of the most common questions people have about the Heavenly Father. But those questions can’t be answered unless we first know who God is. This week Ravi Zacharias tackles that question in his message “Who is God?”

"For 36 years, Ravi Zacharias has spoken all over the world and in numerous universities, notably Harvard, Princeton, and Oxford University. He has addressed writers of the peace accord in South Africa, the president’s cabinet and parliament in Peru, and military officers at the Lenin Military Academy and the Center for Geopolitical Strategy in Moscow. At the invitation of the President of Nigeria, he addressed delegates at the First Annual Prayer Breakfast for African Leaders held in Mozambique. Dr. Zacharias has direct contact with key leaders, senators, congressmen, and governors who consult him on an ongoing basis. He has addressed the Florida Legislature and the Governor’s Prayer Breakfast in Texas, and has twice spoken at the Annual Prayer Breakfast at the United Nations in New York, which marks the beginning of the UN General Assembly each year.

There are 2 types of people in the world: 1.) those who say to God, "THY will be done.", and 2.) those to whom God says," THY will be done." Ravi Zacharias
Ravi Zacharias wrote, "Having the freedom to love when you may choose not to love is to give love legitimate meaning."
We make a mistake in thinking that something is right or wrong because our culture deems it such. -Ravi Zacharias
"I came to Him because I did not know which way to turn. I have remained with Him because there is no other way I wish to turn. I came to Him longing for something I did not have. I remain with Him because I have something I will not trade. I came to Him as a stranger. I remain with Him in the most intimate of friendships. I came to Him unsure about the future. I remain with Him certain about my destiny." Ravi Zacharias

"Truth that is not undergirded by love makes the truth obnoxious and the possessor of it repulsive" -Ravi Zacharias
THANKS to everyone for the gracious birthday greetings... as I shared with those who celebrated with me tonight, here are three of the biggest lessons I have learned in my 30 years of life so far: 1) LIFE is a vapor and it goes by so fast... make the most of every minute and don't waste time! 2) PEOPLE are far more important than places and projects... make relationships a priority and go the extra mile to connect with individuals! 3) GOD is the Grand Weaver and He shapes us through the events of our lives (h/t Ravi Zacharias)... the last decade didn't turn out exactly as I had planned or anticipated, but God's plans are SO much better than our own and we've got to trust that He is weaving each thread into a beautiful and purposeful design! Thanks again, y'all... I'm grateful for everyone who is a part of my life, and I look forward to many new adventures along the way!

Truth, to be truly effective, must be underscored with love. “Conviction that is not under-girded by love makes the possessor of that conviction obnoxious, and the dogma possessed becomes repulsive” (Ravi Zacharias). We must make every effort not to come across harsh, overly critical, or arrogant, but to speak the truth from a gentle spirit.
"What we win the masses with is what we win them to, and we are subjecting a generation to ignoble speech and lacerating rhetoric. How will this win them to noble ends?" -Ravi Zacharias
Nationally-syndicated radio show host Dennis Prager and world-renowned Christian apologist Ravi Zacharias just appeared on stage together again — this time at Biola University in Los Angeles. The evening was hosted by famed radio show host Frank Sontag of Los Angeles’ KKLA 99.5 FM.
03/02/2014 MidNight Thought: Buckle Up! (Repost) During a Recent broadcast, Christian Apologist, Ravi Zacharias relayed a story told about one-time Heavyweight Boxing Champion Muhammad Ali. Ali was flying to one of his engagements and during the flight the aircraft ran into foul weather. Moderate turbulence began to toss the plane about. Of course, all nervous fliers well know that when a Pilot signals “moderate turbulence,” he is implying, “If you have any religious beliefs, it is time to start expressing them.” The passengers were instructed to fasten their seatbelts immediately, and all complied but Ali. So the Fflight Attendant approached him and requested that he observe the Captain’s order, only to hear Ali audaciously respond, “Superman don’t need no seatbelt.” The flight attendant, however, did not miss a beat but quickly fired in reply, “Superman don’t need no airplane either!" Beloved, Its amusing to think that we can fly without wings! Yet so many of us conduct our lives a . ...

Franklin Graham writes in THE NAME, "Christians are increasingly not tolerated because they are viewed as intolerant! I agree wholeheartedly with my friend Christian apologist Ravi Zacharias who write in JESUS AMONG OTHER GODS: 'We are living in a time when sensitivities are at the surface, often vented in cutting words. Philosophically, you can practice anything so long as you do not claim that it is a "better" way. Religiously, you can hold to anything, so long as you do not bring Jesus Christ into it. If a spiritual idea is eastern, it is granted critical immunity; if western, it is thoroughly criticized...All religions, plainly and simply, cannot be true...It does no good to put a halo on the notion of tolerance as if everything could be equally true.'"
March 1 and I finished my 24th book... Ravi Zacharias' "the Grand Weaver". Perplexed with the way random things seem to happen to you and wonder what good can possibly come of these things?

"Love is a command, not just a feeling. Somehow, in the romantic world of music and theater we have made love to be what it is not. We have so mixed it with beauty and charm and sensuality and contact that we have robbed it of its higher call of cherishing and nurturing." ~ Ravi Zacharias

Ravi Zacharias and Dennis Prager take LA by storm. Jam-packed auditorium for a jam-packed night.
The Samaritan woman grasped what He said with fervor that came from an awareness of her real need. The transaction was fascinating. She has come with a bucket. He sent her back with a spring of living water. She had come as a reject. He sent her back being accepted by God Himself. She came wounded. He sent her back whole. She came laden with questions. He sent her back as a source for answers. She came living a life of quiet desperation. She ran back overflowing with hope. The disciples missed it all. It was lunchtime for them.-Ravi Zacharias
It is easier to hide behind philosophical arguments, heavily footnoted for effect, than it is to admit our hurts, our confusions, our loves, and our passions in the marketplace of life's heartfelt transactions.- Ravi Zacharias

“Love is a commitment that will be tested in the most vulnerable areas of spirituality, a commitment that will force you to make some very difficult choices. It is a commitment that demands that you deal with your lust, your greed, your pride, your power, your desire to control, your temper, your patience, and every area of temptation that the Bible clearly talks about. It demands the quality of commitment that Jesus demonstrates in His relationship to us.” ―Ravi Zacharias

"Faith in the biblical sense is substantive, based in the knowledge that the One in whom that faith is placed has proven that He is worthy of trust.

In light of the video I posted recently of Ravi Zacharias' critique of ethical relativism, here is a long and chilling quote from Ted Bundy. Whether we are religious or not, we need to consider the logical consequences of ethical relativism very seriously, because ethical relativism, if true, is impotent to justifiably stop someone like Ted Bundy: “Then I learned that all moral judgments are “value judgments,” that all value judgments are subjective, and that none can be proved to be either “right” or “wrong.” I even read somewhere that the Chief Justice of the United States had written that the American Constitution expressed nothing more than collective value judgments. Believe it or not, I figured out for myself—what apparently the Chief Justice couldn’t figure out for himself—that if the rationality of one value judgment was zero, multiplying it by millions would not make it one whit more rational. Nor is there any “reason” to obey the law for anyone, like myself, who has the b ...

What the Christian Right Gets Wrong About Sin. In the latest volley of the Christian culture wars, dozens of prominent conservative Christian leaders -- including Rick Warren, Ravi Zacharias, and Wayne Grudem -- have filed an amicus brief supporting Hobby Lobby in the ongoing battle over contraception. Much ink has already been spilled in this battle -- about contraception, religious liberty, freedom of choice -- and I have no interest in arguing those topics that many others have already addressed. But I do believe this brief offers us a glimpse at one of the flawed premises driving our ongoing culture wars. In addition to citing theologies of vocation and freedom of religion, the document argues: "Christian doctrine states it is a sin for a Christian to enable or aid another in doing what the Christian believes to be sin. " (Hobby Lobby Brief, p. 26) Several passages are cited in support of this doctrine: 1 Cor. 8:9-13 (don't wound your brother's conscience); Rom. 14:13-14 (don't be a stumbling block), ...

A man rejects God neither because of intellectual demands nor because of the scarcity of evidence. A man rejects God because of a moral resistance that refuses to admit his need for God. -Ravi Zacharias
One Real Thing By Jill Carattini, A story is told about a man who made an impression on his dinner guests in such a way that the memory stayed with them for decades. The man was known to many as one of the foremost Christian ministers of the twentieth century. His dinner guests, who were of a different persuasion, did not recall striking attempts to convert them or winsome arguments for the Christian faith. They remembered this: “He carved the meat with such dignity.”(1) Much could be said of this observation. Much could be said of a theology that can shape dinner parties, consumption, even the way one carves meat. This is perhaps particularly true for a world where the disconnect between farm and freezer is often so great that the origins, let alone the dignity, of our food is entirely unknown. I recall a former professor telling the story of serving a roasted chicken for Sunday dinner as a special treat. His young son, far more accustomed to seeing chicken in less-identifiable “nuggets” or packa ...

Education feeds the mind but The Holy Spirit feeds the soul - Pastor Ravi Zacharias "17 that the God of our LORD Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, 18 the eyes of your understanding[a] being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power" - Ephesians 1:17-19 No matter what you think you know, if you're not walking in love, then the Bible says you don't know anything. - 'Do not be led by your head' (2013).

Knowledge puffs up, but love edifies. 2 And if anyone thinks that he knows anything, he knows nothing yet as he ought to know." - 1 Corinthians 8:1-2
NAPOLEON BONAPARTE ON THE DIVINITY OF CHRIST - Well then, I will tell you. Alexander, Caesar, Charlemagne and I myself have founded great empires; but upon what did these creations of our genius depend? Upon force. Jesus alone founded His empire upon love, and to this very day millions will die for Him. I think I understand something of human nature; and I tell you, all these were men, and I am a man: none else is like Him; Jesus Christ was more than a man. I have inspired multitudes with such an enthusiastic devotion that they would have died for me but to do this it was necessary that I should be visibly present with the electric influence of my looks, my words, of my voice. When I saw men and spoke to them, I lighted up the flame of self-devotion in their hearts. Christ alone has succeeded in so raising the mind of man toward the unseen, that it becomes insensible to the barriers of time and space.

The competition for the attention of their people is immense: The attack on the visual, the constant distraction of many voices, the challenges of those with huge budgets to keep people in their pews over those who do not have recourse to huge budgets, the incremental growth of knowledge, the incredible vitriolic nature of these attacks, the youth in their challenges and struggles with their finances, and other experiences. It is difficult to keep up with these challenges that are unparalleled and unprecedented in history. My sympathy for pastors is intense. When I visit churches, I feel for them. I pray for them." - Dr. Ravi Zacharias
The loneliest moment in life is when you have just experienced that which you thought would deliver the ultimate, and it has just let you down... -Ravi Zacharias

All religions are fundamentally different but superficially similar - Ravi Zacharias.
"There can be no reproach to pain unless we assume human dignity, there is no reason for restraints on pleasure unless we assume human worth, there is no legitimacy to monotony unless we assume a greater purpose to life, there is no purpose to life unless we assume design, death has no significance unless we seek what is everlasting.” ― Ravi Zacharias

“Golden bridge, silver bridge or diamond bridge; it doesn’t matter! As long as the bridge takes you across the other side, it is a good bridge!” ~ Mehmet Murat ildan “To embark on the journey towards your goals and dreams requires bravery. To remain on that path requires courage. The bridge that merges the two is commitment.” ~ Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience There is a land of the living and a land of the dead and the bridge is love, the only survival, the only meaning. ~Thornton Wilder Jesus said, 'Greater things of these you shall do...' Become a peace builder, a bridge builder, not a destroyer, and the way you do that is through friendships and relationships, and through authentic character. ~Ravi Zacharias
"A conversation of a man who came Jesus and said to him, "Is it alright to pay taxes to Caesar?" Jesus looked at him and said, "Do you have a coin?" The man said "Yes." He said, "Give me that coin." Jesus looked at the coin and said, "Who's image do you see on this?" The man said, "Caesar." Jesus says, "Give to Caesar that which is Caesar's and give to God, that which is God's." The man ought to have had a follow up question and he ought to have said, "What belongs to God?" Jesus' answer would have been, "Who's image is on you?" -Ravi Zacharias
RAVI ZACHARIAS IN PERSON: What came through last night in the Redding Civic Auditorium was the man's passion for the gospel and his unfailing attention and concern for those with questions.

Despite the critics, I believe as Nehemiah did in the Old Testament that we can "rebuild the wall"! I want an opportunity to allow our children to witness public service at the gubernatorial level. Most career politicians have forgotten that they should represent the people. I say this because most people feel completely disconnected from politics and politicians except when we are paying taxes. We focus too much on the "left" and "right", forgetting that there is an "up" (heaven) and a "down" *** . (The last sentence paraphrased from Dr. Ravi Zacharias) Let's work together to make Georgia a model for other states to emulate!

"When you say there's too much evil in this world you assume there's good. When you assume there's good, you assume there's such a thing as a moral law on the basis of which to differentiate between good and evil. But if you assume a moral law, you must posit a moral Law Giver, but that's Who you're trying to disprove and not prove. Because if there's no moral Law Giver, there's no moral law. If there's no moral law, there's no good. If there's no good, there's no evil. What is your question?" -Ravi Zacharias

“Every other person who is at the heart of any religion has had his or her beginning either in fancy or in fact. But nevertheless, there is a beginning. Jesus' birth in Bethlehem was a moment preceded by eternity. His being neither originated in time nor came about by the will of humanity. The Author of time, who lived in the eternal, was made incarnate in time that we might live with the eternal in view. In that sense, the message of Christ was not the introduction of a religion, but an introduction to truth about reality as God alone knows it. To deny Jesus' message while pursuing spirituality is to conjure an imaginary religion in an attempt to see heaven while sight is confined to the earth. That is precisely what Jesus challenged when he said, "I have come that [you] may have life" (John 10:10). His life spells living. Your life or my life, apart from Him, spells death.” -Ravi Zacharias

Christian Ethics By Ravi Zacharias 3 Principles to guard our character against the temptations that come: 1. Anything that refreshes you without destructing, diminishing or destroying you from your final goal is a legitimate pleasure. 2. Anything that jeopardize the sacred right of another person is an illicit pleasure. 3. Any pleasure however good if not kept in balance will distort reality or destroy appetite.

I hope to see you on Sunday. Have a great weekend!
On the Grand Weave. Dr. Ravi Zacharias called it the Grand Weave, and by extension, dubbed God as the Grand Weaver. What was he talking about? Why, our existence, life itself, in totality. And just as any woven fabric or tapestry is composed of countless strands that are interwoven and interconnected, so too are our lives. Yes, we are all connected, and therein lies a clue to the significance of each and every soul that lives on this planet. All of us, myself included have felt insignificant, small, even worthless at some point or the other. We sometimes, in our heart of hearts end up comparing our deeds, our achievements to those of others around us, and find ours, and ourselves, seemingly hopelessly dwarfed and outmatched. Those of our brothers and sisters who are still studying may find that our academic performances are gauged against those of our peers and found wanting, by who? Why, by parents and family, our dearest and closest. As such many are discouraged and many even weigh themselves on the sca ...

During a Q and A, one man poses this question to Ravi zacharias, he asked: "whats your opinion about the state of the church in the world, and is there a larger statement that you could make about some trends in the church across the world?" This is how Ravi answers: "Unfortunately, you may not like what i am going to say here, i hope i don’t offend anybody, the problem with the world today, is not, the world, it is the church. We have become very shallow as Christians, Very shallow. WE HAVE BECOME MASTERS AT ENGINEERING FEELINGS WITHOUT MUCH THOUGHT. There is a very little thinking that goes on in church. We repeat things, parade things, we haven’t thought our faith through, WE HAVENT LISTENED TO OTHERS AND WHAT THEIR QUESTIONS ARE. Our answers are very shallow. In TRYING TO BECOME SEEKER FRIENDLY WE HAVE BECOME MESSAGE UNFRIENDLY. We have no real depth to what we are trying to teach and speak, life has its jagged edges against us, and we are giving simplistic answers. Somewhere we fell into a trap o ...

RAVI ZACHARIAS: POPULAR CHRISTIAN APOLOGIST SPEAKS TO 3,500 AT MORMON TEMPLE; ASKS FAITHS TO OPPOSE 'LOST MORALITY' TOGETHER [Excerpts] Christian apologist and writer Ravi Zacharias addressed 3,500 evangelicals and Mormons at the LDS Tabernacle in Salt Lake City, Utah, asking that people from the two faiths stand together to oppose "relativism" and "lost morality." The two-day "Freedom and Friendship" event held [January 17-18, 2014] marked the second time that Zacharias had spoken at the Tabernacle. The apologist's first meeting occurred 10 years ago, when he became the first non-Mormon speaker in the Tabernacle in 105 years. Zacharias focused on how Christians and Mormons should make sense of a culture that increasingly relies on a "pragmatic philosophy with no accountability," during his talk on Saturday. Zacharias also put the onus on evangelicals and Mormons to first change themselves-through reading the Bible and asking God to "make you right with Him" before seeking to change culture." "Once we do ...
Surprisingly, Jesus never claimed to be a religious leader. He never got into religious politics or pushed an ambitious agenda, and he ministered almost entirely outside the established religious framework. When one compares Jesus with the other great religious leaders, a remarkable distinction emerges. Ravi Zacharias, who grew up in a Hindu culture, has studied world religions and observed a fundamental distinction between Jesus Christ and the founders of other major religions. “In all of these, there emerges an instruction, a way of living. It is not Zoroaster to whom you turn; it is Zoroaster to whom you listen. It is not Buddha who delivers you; it is his Noble Truths that instruct you. It is not Mohammad who transforms you; it is the beauty of the Koran that woos you. By contrast, Jesus did not only teach or expound His message. He was identical with His message.”
I like this quote from Ravi Zacharias: "'If you want to know what water is, don't ask the fish.' So goes an old Chinese proverb. In other words, total immersion deprives the mind of a counter perspective and, for that matter, an honest evaluation." This is why it's helpful study the Bible from an an ancient perspective - to look at it from another point of view.
"Ravi Zacharias has dedicated close to 40 years of his life writing, lecturing, and debating about his belief."
I am reading one of Ravi Zacharias' books in Bulgarian! (btw, I didn't recognize him when they pronounced his name in Bulgarian, funny)

Personal Choices January 27, 2014 There are some stories that move us whether we hear them at five or fifty-five. The 1965 release of the first Peanuts movie, A Charlie Brown Christmas, was instantly loved by adults and children alike. But it almost did not make it past the television executives who hated it. The movie was criticized for everything from being too contemporary in music, to being too religious in tone. But audiences everywhere confidently disagreed. Having aired every year since its debut in 1965, it is now the longest-running cartoon special in history. One of my predictably favorite scenes finds Charlie Brown on a hunt for the perfect “great big, shiny, aluminum tree—maybe even a pink one” as instructed by Lucy for their Christmas pageant. At the tree lot, Charlie Brown walks through row after row of flashing, shiny spectacles of color, trying his best to choose well and please his friends. But then he sees a small, natural tree, nearly overshadowed by the flash and glitter of the r ...

Saturday, I was at Gering High School's speech meet. We were in Serious Prose to watch a girl from our church in Scottsbluff do her speech. We heard a kids do speech's on-- -A kid got up and gave one on a *** guy who was claiming his rights were being violated, according to the Declaration of Independence, because his- Non-American lover- was not allowed citizenship in America and that he could not marry him... --Another was a about a little girl who was lured into the woods by a man who had built a hidden "house" under ground so he could trap little girls and rape and kill them...But it was told form the perspective of the little girl as she was experiencing the horror. But it was not horror, for most of the speech, because the little girl was excited...she was innocent to the evil that was about to destroy her. -A high school girl who was drawn into an affair with her teacher and only after the child was pregnant, the teacher deserted the soon to be teenage mother of HIS child. Then years latter, when . ...
“For the LORD’s portion is his people, Jacob his allotted inheritance. In a desert land he found him, in a barren and howling waste. He shielded him and cared for him; he guarded him as the apple of his eye” (32:9-10). God’s gathering of the Israelites was not based on prerequisites. Yet it was far from passive and unfeeling, emerging from God’s love, mercy, and wisdom. The prophets would later describe it as the selection of a bride for a bridegroom, and Jesus would later describe himself as the bridegroom who came even closer to beckon that bride to his side. God’s own are referred to as the “apple of his eye,” an expression reserved for those who are most endeared to us. The original Hebrew for the expression can be literally translated as “little person of the eye.” The idiom is surprisingly close to the Latin “pupilla,” from which we get the word pupil. The word means “little doll,” and was applied to the dark center of the eye because of the tiny image of oneself that app ...
Ravi Zacharias: They all converge on the same truth
I wrote a blog a few weeks ago called, “Press In and Live Holy”. I said that we are living in a culture where we are being bombarded with unholy, impure things. If we aren't careful, we may find ourselves walking in the ways of the world instead of walking in the ways of God. Today, I’d like to warn you about the trend out there - spirituality. Spirituality. It’s all over the place. It’s in TV shows, movies, in the music we hear, in books and magazines in our stores, and it’s all over the internet. If you don’t know much about the “spiritual” stuff out there, you could be accepting these things into your home, your mind, and your life. The Bible says in Ephesians 6 that we are in a war - a spiritual war against the darkness, against Satan, and his followers. So if we are in a spiritual war, it doesn’t surprise me that there is so much out there that is popular and “spiritual”. It disturbed me to see someone who claims to be a Christian, turning to “spiritual things” ins ...

Just finished watching Ravi ZACHARIAS. He was a Hindu and at the age of 16 after trying to commit suicide became a Christian and now speaks around the world. I like to think of him as today's CS Lewis. One of the trues he spoke about is the trouble with today's world population is not poverty, it's corruption of and lack of truth. The fact that Christians are no longer suppose to proclaim their truth and are suppose to "shut up and go away". It is all right if you believe something else but if it is Christianity.don't express it don't teach it, don't display it! How does one live like that? I'm sorry I can't. I AM A CHRISTIAN! Jesus, the Son of God, did sacrifice his own life for me, and took the penalty for my sins, past present and future, over 2,000 yrs. ago. I am so thankful to Him. He is my truth!
"...if apologetics is to be done effectively, we do not necessarily need the experts doing it; rather, we need to connect with the questioner at a personal level. Jesus consistently drove this home. His one-on-one conversations were remarkably personal and left the other looking into his or her own heart and spiritual condition." -Ravi Zacharias, "Beyond Opinion"
Any human being who violates the law of God will end up proving it, not destroying it. The Word of God remains eternal and those who have tried to bury it ends up finding that God's word outlives its pall bearers. Ravi Zacharias
Do you know what your heart longs for? It longs for intimacy that touches both body and soul. Communion is one of those acts. The hope that God will give you in worship. The greatest search of the human heart is to find unity and diversity. You will never find it until you find the thrill and the privilege of worshiping Him. For worship is the submission of all our nature to God. It's the quickening of conscience by his holiness. Nourishment of mind by His truth. Purifying of imagination by his beauty. Opening of the heart to his love. And submission of will to his purpose. And all this gathered up in adoration is the greatest expression of which we are capable. That's why the music. That's why the message. That's why the fellowship. That's why the giving. That's why the community. That's why the evangel. That's why the distribution of the truth. It pulls together everything into a singular skin that "I am the Lord your God who has rescued you and delivered you therefore you shall have no other god before ...
Your hear it a thousand times and more growing up in the East--”we all come through different routes and end up in the same place”. But I say to you, God is not a place or an experience or a feeling. Pluralistic cultures are beguiled by the cosmetically courteous idea that sincerity or privilege of birth is all that counts and that truth is subject to the beholder. In no other discipline of life can one be so naïve as to claim inherited belief or insistent belief as the sole determiner of truth. Why then do we make the catastrophic error of thinking that all religions are right and that it does not matter whether the claims they make are objectively true? All religions are not the same. All religions do not point to God. All religions do not say that all religions are the same. At the heart of every religion is an uncompromising commitment to a particular way of defining who God is or is not and accordingly, of defining life’s purpose. Anyone who claims that all religions are the same betra ...
"Violence does not stand alone. It stands side by side with injustice" Ravi Zacharias
Quote from my walk, " you see it is not falling that is the worst, it's staying on the ground. " Ravi Zacharias We all fall in our sin and blow it, but for our sake and the sake of the people around us and our family we need to let Jesus get us off the ground clean us up and keep going. James 4:9-10 NLT Let there be tears for what you have done. Let there be sorrow and deep grief. Let there be sadness instead of laughter, and gloom instead of joy. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up in honor.
"The home was instituted before the Church was brought into being...Looking at the average home today, we see how much heartache has resulted because we no longer see marriage God's way. We seem to be living more in a wilderness, isolated from one another. Self-centredness and personal ambition have replaced the love of a man for a woman and the raising of the family. The seeds of selfishness have given root to the thorns and hurts of fractured families. If our homes fail, history collapses." - Ravi Zacharias
