“Quote Unquote”

October 3, 2014 § 3 Comments

“The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.”  —  G.K. Chesterton

“What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has the eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like.”  —  Augustine

“In the best sense of the word [Jesus] was a radical.  … His religion has so long been identified with conservatism — often conservatism of the obstinate and unyielding sort — that it is almost startling for us sometimes to remember that all the conservatism of His own times was against him, that it was the young, restless, sanguine, progressive part of the people who flocked to him.”  —  Phillips Brooks

    I read in Christianity Today several years ago that the more people take scripture seriously, the more liberal they become. So much emphasis on good government being characterized by care for “the widows, the orphans and the foreigners in your land.” So much emphasis on justice.

  • Shea says:

    Love it.
