Some favorite quotes from Taking God At His Word by Kevin DeYoung

Filed under: Uncategorized — dannywahlquist @ 5:52 am

We are all righteously indignant when someone else holds in little esteem what we know to be precious.

Psalm 119 is a love poem, not a checklist.

the tendency in the American church to plan and dream and scheme and vision-cast and engage in mutual discernment, all while God’s clear voice lies neglected on our laps.

Whatever else we may disagree on as Catholics, liberals, and evangelicals, we should at least agree that it is our view of Scripture and authority that divides us.

Counselors can counsel meaningfully because Scripture is sufficient. Bible study leaders can lead confidently because Scripture is clear. Preachers can preach with boldness because their biblical text is authoritative. And evangelists can evangelize with urgency because the Scripture is necessary.

someone asking John Piper, “Why did you conclude inerrancy is true?” The first thing out of his mouth surprised everyone: “Because my momma told me it’s true.”
