"The Son of God became a man to enable men to become the sons of God." C.S. Lewis
The new minister was asked to teach a boys' class in the absence of the regular teacher. He decided to see what they knew, so he asked who knocked down the walls of Jericho. All the boys denied having done it, and the preacher was appalled by their ignorance. At the next deacons' meeting he told about the experience. "Not one of them knows who knocked down the walls of Jericho," he lamented. The group was silent until finally one seasoned veteran of disputes spoke up. "Preacher, this appears to be bothering you a lot. But I've known all those boys since they were born and they're good boys. If they said they didn't know, I believe them. Let's just take some money out of the repair and maintenance fund, fix the walls, and let it go at that."
"Christ will be standing upright, tall and immortal, after the tumult and the shouting dies and the captains and the kings lie stretched side by side, the 'cause' that made them famous forgotten, and their whole significance reduced to a paragraph in a history book."
"Sin is the only thing that God abhors. It brought Christ to the cross, it damns souls, it shuts heaven and it laid the foundations of hell." -Thomas Brooks
