Christ is both King and Lord

Living Words – C.S. Lewis (1898-1963)

It is a serious thing to live in a society of possible gods and goddesses, to remember that the dullest most uninteresting person you talk to may one day be a creature which, if you saw it now, you would be strongly tempted to worship, or else a horror and a corruption such as you … Continue reading Living Words – C.S. Lewis (1898-1963)

Living Words – Dallas Willard (1935 – 2013)

There is truly no distinction between sacred and secular except what we have created. And that is why the division of the legitimate roles and functions of human life into the sacred and secular does incalculable damage to our individual lives and to the cause of Christ. Holy people must stop going into "church work" … Continue reading Living Words – Dallas Willard (1935 – 2013)

Living Words – Dorothy L. Sayers (1893-1957)

In nothing has the Church so lost Her hold on reality as in Her failure to understand and respect the secular vocation. She has allowed work and religion to become separate departments, and is astonished to find that, as result, the secular work of the world is turned to purely selfish and destructive ends, and … Continue reading Living Words – Dorothy L. Sayers (1893-1957)

Living Words – Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929-1968)

'I say to you, this morning, that if you have never found something so dear and so precious to you that you will die for it, then you aren't fit to live. You may be thirty-eight years old, as I happen to be, and one day some great opportunity stands before you and calls upon … Continue reading Living Words – Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929-1968)

Thoughts from Lord Acton

As we prepare towards the elections next year, we should reflect on the purpose and limit of political power. Discussions have always been on which person or which party is competent  to wield power. However, a more fundamental issue is to clarify  the role of the state in society. This goes way beyond 2015; it will … Continue reading Thoughts from Lord Acton

Living Words – Charles Colson (1931-2012)

Genuine Christianity is more than a relationship with Jesus, as expressed in personal piety, church attendance, Bible study, and works of charity. It is more than discipleship, more than believing a system of doctrines about God. Genuine Christianity is a way of seeing and comprehending all reality. It is a worldview.

Living Words – J. Gresham Machen (1881-1937)

'We look not for a continuation of spiritual conditions that now exist, but for an outburst of new power; we are seeking in particular to arouse youth from its present uncritical repetition of current phrases into some genuine examination of the basis of life; and we believe that Christianity flourishes not in the darkness, but … Continue reading Living Words – J. Gresham Machen (1881-1937)

Living Words – Abraham Kuyper (1837 – 1920)

If the battle is to be fought with honour and with a hope of victory, then principle must be arrayed against principle; then it must be felt that in Modernism the vast energy of an all-embracing life system assails us, then also it must be understood that we have to take our stand in a … Continue reading Living Words – Abraham Kuyper (1837 – 1920)

Living Words – James Henley Thornwell (1812 – 1862)

If the Church could be aroused to a deeper sense of the glory that awaits her, she would enter with a warmer spirit into the struggles that are before her. Hope would inspire ardour. She would even now arise from the dust, and like the eagle, plume her pinions for loftier flights than she has yet … Continue reading Living Words – James Henley Thornwell (1812 – 1862)
