The Bible vs. Heart
Denis Prager: “I offer the single most politically incorrect statement a modern American — indeed a modern Westerner, period — can make: I first look to the Bible for moral guidance and for wisdom. I say this even though I am not a Christian (I am a Jew, and a non-Orthodox one at that). And I say this even though I attended an Ivy League graduate school (Columbia), where I learned nothing about the Bible there except that it was irrelevant, outdated and frequently immoral.”

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a great battle
Touching and challenging story.

Dr Ben Carson, Creationist
“In the event that you found yourself in Baltimore and required emergency brain surgery, would you, proud secular liberal, let a six-day creationist gay-marriage critic cut open your skull?”

Jesus is on the wrong side of history
This really helps to put current events in historical perspective.

Mission in the Old Testament
Timothy Reymond: “Mission in the Old Testament is a fascinating little book that argues that God’s purpose in his sovereign selection of the nation of Israel was not arbitrary or simply because he preferred Hebrew culture, but strategically missiological.”

The 10/10/10 Rule for Tough Decisions
We should think about our decisions on three different time frames:

  • How will we feel about it 10 minutes from now?
  • How about 10 months from now?
  • How about 10 years from now?
  • Marie Peterson

    As Christians, we should add another 10 to the 10/10/10 Rule- 10 centuries from now!

    • Marie Peterson
