quotes of the moment

"Judgment is a terrible evangelism strategy."

"What's the logic behind judging people who don't follow Jesus for behaving like people who don't follow Jesus?"

"Non-Christians usually act more consistently with their value system than you do.

"It's difficult for a non-Christian to be a hypocrite because they tend to live out what they believe.

"Chances are they are better at living out their values than you or I are. Jesus never blamed pagans for acting like pagans."

The headline is never the real story—the real story is a slow, nearly imperceptible nurturing of resentments.

-- dave mondy

quote of the moment

Of course all life is a process of breaking down, but the blows that do the dramatic side of the work—the big sudden blows that come, or seem to come, from outside—the ones you remember and blame things on and, in moments of weakness, tell your friends about, don’t show their effect all at once. There is another sort of blow that comes from within—that you don’t feel until it’s too late to do anything about it, until you realize with finality that in some regard you will never be as good a man again. The first sort of breakage seems to happen quick—the second kind happens almost without your knowing it but is realized suddenly indeed.

-- F Scott Fitzgerald
