Quote of the Day – January 1st, 2008

January 2, 2008

“I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish things that people often say about Him: “I’m ready to accept Him Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept His claim to be God.” That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic – on a level with a man who says he is a poached egg – or else he would be the devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God: or else a madman or something worse. You can shut Him up for a fool, you can spit at Him and kill Him as a demon; or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.”

– C.S. Lewis

“Prayer is never an acceptable substitute for obedience. The sovereign Lord accepts no offering from His creatures that is not accompanied by obedience. To pray for revival while ignoring or
actually flouting the plain precept laid down in the Scriptures is to waste a lot of words and get nothing for our trouble.”

(A.W. Tozer – Of God and Men, 52.)
