Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? —Matthew 5:13
Many Christians spend a lot of time and energy in making excuses, because they have never broken through into a real offensive for God by the unlimited power of the Holy Spirit!
The world has nothing that we want—for we are believers in a faith that is as well authenticated as any solid fact of life. The truths we believe and the links in the chain of evidence are clear and rational.
I contend that the church has a right to rejoice and that this is no time in the world’s history for Christian believers to settle for a defensive holding action! ICH030
We Christians must stop apologizing for our moral position and start making our voices heard, exposing sin as the enemy of the human race and setting forth righteousness and true holiness as the only worthy pursuits for moral beings.
I have no doubt that historians will conclude that we of the twentieth century had intelligence enough to create a great civilization but not the moral wisdom to preserve it. TTPI, Book 1/113
