“There’s a cruel irony that comes into play whenever we value something above God.
If we prioritize happiness above all else, we will never find happiness. If we grant marriage or family or work the highest place in our hearts, we will end up hurting those too.
These are all good things, but they were never meant to bear the full weight of our ultimate allegiance.”~ Drew Dyck

"I think we have really hyper-individualized Christianity. We are comfortable with pastors laying out the implications of being a Christian in our personal lives, maybe even our family lives...but not our social lives. When you group people together into communities, such as a neighborhood or national government, for some reason, we tend to keep God out of those arenas today. Why are so many churches scared to tackle social issues like gun violence, education reform, racism, abortion, and so on? Why have we so privatized our Christianity?"~ Skye Jethani
"In the beginning (New Testament times), the church was a gathering of men and women around the person and mission of Jesus. Then it moved to Greece, where the church became a philosophy. Then it moved to Rome, where the church became an institution. Then it moved to Europe, where the church became a culture. And it's finally come to America, where the church has become an enterprise. The reason for this is that as the church has moved throughout the world, it has taken on the forms/structures that were dominant in whatever culture it went. In the early church, the dominant organizing principle of the culture was the household...the family."~ Richard Halverson
