These words from others got my wheels spinning this week. Bon appetit!
"I lost my religion two years ago."
". . .can there be life without risk? Did God take a risk by creating man with a free will? Did He know of the horrors that would follow?" (I don't want to get clobbered by the copyright police. I've got to give credit for this one to Ted Dekker.)
"Why don't Christians want to think outside the box? If we don't use our minds, aren't we just following the law? "
"I don't know where God fits in my life. I believe in Him and know He has worked. I just don't know where He fits right now."
"It is important to remember that not everyone will understand, or connect or enjoy what we do. But, there is someone out there who God will touch through it. Just take the message of the gospel for example. It is a stumbling block, it is convicting, it is joy, it is freedom it is embraced wholeheartedly and it is rejected vehemently . It is the most important and heart felt message in history. We can expect no less from our tiny personal message."
