Wisdom of the Ages – Johann Baptist Metz

Are we Christians in this country really changing our hearts, or do we just believe in a change of heart

Wisdom of the Ages

“Are we Christians in this country really changing our hearts, or do we just believe in a change of heart…?”
– Johann Baptist Metz

Wisdom of the Ages – John Gresham Machen

It is when men have felt compelled to take a stand against error that they have risen to the really great heights in the celebration of the truth

Wisdom of the Ages

“Again, men tell us that our preaching should be positive and not negative, that we can preach the truth without attacking error. But if we follow that advice we shall have to close our Bible and desert its teachings. The New Testament is a polemic book almost from beginning to end … It is when men have felt compelled to take a stand against error that they have risen to the really great heights in the celebration of the truth”
– John Gresham Machen

Wisdom of the Ages – Marcus Borg

You can believe all the right things and still be relatively unchanged. Believing a set of claims to be true has very little transforming power

“You can believe all the right things and still be in bondage. You can believe all the right things and still be miserable. You can believe all the right things and still be relatively unchanged. Believing a set of claims to be true has very little transforming power.”
― Marcus J. Borg

Wisdom of the Ages – Watchman Nee

Wisdom of the Ages

“What he needs is not increased spiritual teaching but an obedient heart which is willing to yield his life to the Holy Spirit and go the way of the cross according to the Spirit’s command. Increased spiritual teaching will only strengthen his carnality and serve to deceive him into conceiving himself as spiritual”
– Watchman Nee
