#1. Customs change with time, so it isn't fair to permit change only when you happen to approve of it but condemn change citing biblical authority when you don't. - Author: Deepak Chopra
Biblical Regeneration quotes by Deepak Chopra
#2. If we are talking about a loving God, we are talking about a God who asks us to trust him, whether we get what we ask for or don't. But he will never force us to trust him. That is entirely up to us. We have free will and we can accept his love or reject it, or claim it doesn't exist at all. We can trust him or distrust him as we like. But if he really and truly is the God of the Bible, who loves me with an unchanging and self-sacrificial love (agape), then I really and truly can trust him in all circumstances, which is tremendously freeing. In fact, I can go one step further than trusting him. To use a biblical phrase, I can rejoice in him. But is only possible if we really do know that God has our best interests at heart at all times. Of course, we have to decide on our own whether we believe that. But if we come to see that, that is true and do allow ourselves to believe it, we are precisely where he created us to be: in his loving hands. - Author: Eric Metaxas
Biblical Regeneration quotes by Eric Metaxas

#9. False Narrative: The Kingdom of God is Future No serious biblical scholar would deny that Jesus' proclaimed the kingdom of God. However, many scholars conclude that Jesus was not talking about our present world but rather an epoch in history that has not yet begun. - Author: James Bryan Smith
Biblical Regeneration quotes by James Bryan Smith
#10. Defining evangelism in a biblical way helps us align our evangelistic practice with the Scriptures. Here's a definition that has served me well for many years: Evangelism is teaching the gospel with the aim to persuade. - Author: J. Mack Stiles
Biblical Regeneration quotes by J. Mack Stiles
#11. Now we see how the astronomical evidence supports the biblical view of the origin of the world. The details differ, but the essential elements in the astronomical and biblical accounts of Genesis are the same: the chain of events leading to man commenced suddenly and sharply at a definite moment in time, in a flash of light and energy. - Author: Robert Jastrow
Biblical Regeneration quotes by Robert Jastrow
#12. What is necessary, Luther insisted, was an entirely different mode of thinking, an ad modum scripturae (in the manner of scripture), a fundamental change of the story. As early as his Lectures on Romans he remaks that the biblical story of the exodus had been interpreted (tropologically) to mean the exodus from vice to virtue. Now, however, it must be interpreted as the exodus from virtue to the grace of God! Grace must be the story. It is grace that determines the relationship between God, the creature, creation, and its destiny. Grace is what God is all about. Grace is what God is up to. And a graced creation is what God aims to arrive at. - Author: Gerhard O. Forde
Biblical Regeneration quotes by Gerhard O. Forde
#13. You may as well quit reading and hearing the Word of God, and give it to the devil, if you do not desire to live according to it. - Author: Martin Luther
Biblical Regeneration quotes by Martin Luther
#14. Christianity is not only the revelation of truth, but also the fountain of holiness under the unceasing inspiration of the spotless example of its Founder, which is more powerful than all the systems of moral philosophy. It attests its divine origin as much by its moral workings as by its pure doctrines. By its own inherent energy, without noise and commotion, without the favor of circumstance - nay, in spite of all possible obstacles, it has gradually wrought the greatest moral reformation, we should rather say, regeneration of society which history has ever seen while its purifying, ennobling, and cheering effects upon the private life of countless individuals are beyond the reach of the historian, though recorded in God's book of life to be opened on the day of judgment. To appreciate this work, we must first review the moral condition of heathenism in its mightiest embodiment in history. - Author: Philip Schaff
Biblical Regeneration quotes by Philip Schaff
#15. When it comes to the New Testament, we can be confident we are reading from accurate sources, because we have so many ancient copies to compare. For many ancient texts there are only a handful of manuscripts in existence. We have only nine or ten good copies of Julius Caesar's The Gallic Wars. The best-preserved, non-biblical ancient writing we have is Homer's Iliad, of which there are only 643 copies. Compare these numbers to the New Testament, which is based on nearly six thousand Greek manuscripts plus over nine thousand ancient copies in other languages. If that were not enough, even if all of these copies were lost, we could reconstruct all but eleven verses of the New Testament from ancient quotations of the Bible. - Author: Douglas M. Beaumont
Biblical Regeneration quotes by Douglas M. Beaumont
#16. On the other hand, inspiration - a criterion for canonization we might expect to play a great role - is not a factor. The Shepherd of Hermas and many writings either claimed inspiration or had it claimed for them, yet were neither universally nor ultimately accepted as canonical. In contrast, no NT writing claims inspiration for itself. The statement in 2 Tim. 3:16 that all Scripture is inspired by God (theopneustos) refers to Torah. Second Peter 3:16 refers to Paul's letters as though they were Scripture but does not say they were 'inspired.' In Revelation, 'inspiration' is certainly implied but not explicitly claimed. No doubt there was an increasingly widespread conviction that the NT writings were divinely inspired, but that notion did not appear to factor in as a criterion for canonization. - Author: Luke Timothy Johnson
Biblical Regeneration quotes by Luke Timothy Johnson
#17. The fall [of your soul] from perfection into duality ... was naturally followed by the discovery of the duality of good and evil ... This is the Biblical version of a myth known to many lands ... - Author: Joseph Campbell
Biblical Regeneration quotes by Joseph Campbell
#18. If we're not careful, our individualistic assumptions about church can lead us to think of the church as something like a health club. We're members because we believe in the mission statement and want to be a part of the action. As long as the church provides the services I want, I'll stick around. But when I no longer approve of the vision, or am no longer "being fed," I'm out the door. This is not biblical Christianity. Scripture is clear that when we become Christians, we become-permanently and spiritually-a part of the church. We become part of the family of God, with all the responsibilities and expectations that word connotes in the non-Western world. - Author: E. Randolph Richards
Biblical Regeneration quotes by E. Randolph Richards
#19. In a touch Buckland would have appreciated, this multipronged dispersal from Africa is sometimes called the Weak Garden of Eden theory. But this tale is actually better than the biblical version; we didn't lose Eden but learned to make other Edens across the world. - Author: Sam Kean
Biblical Regeneration quotes by Sam Kean
#20. If our lives are to be shaped by the story of Scripture, we need to understand two things well: the biblical story is a compelling unity on which we may depend, and each of us has a place within that story. - Author: Craig G. Bartholomew
Biblical Regeneration quotes by Craig G. Bartholomew
#21. Biblical faith lives at the intersection of shocking honesty and glorious hope. - Author: Paul David Tripp
Biblical Regeneration quotes by Paul David Tripp
#22. According to the most common interpretation of biblical prophecy, Jesus will return only after things have gone horribly awry. Imagine the consequences if any significant component of the U.S. government believed that the world was about to end and that its ending would be glorious. The fact that nearly half of the American population apparently believes this should be considered a moral and intellectual emergency. - Author: Sam Harris
Biblical Regeneration quotes by Sam Harris
#23. A time of darkness, despair, disillusion-so black only the inferno of the human mind can be-symbolic death, and numb shock-then the painful agony of slow rebirth and psychic regeneration - Author: Sylvia Plath
Biblical Regeneration quotes by Sylvia Plath
#24. Justification and regeneration are simultaneous. The pardoned sinner becomes a child of God in justification. - Author: William J. Seymour
Biblical Regeneration quotes by William J. Seymour
#25. In the Orthodox ecclesial experience and tradition a sacrament is understood primarily as a revelation of the genuine nature of creation, of the world, which, however much it has fallen as "this world," will remain God's world, awaiting salvation, redemption, healing and transfiguration in a new earth and a new heaven. In other words, in the Orthodox experience a sacrament is primarily a revelation of the sacramentality of creation itself, for the world was created and given to man for conversion of creaturely life into participation in divine life. If in baptism water can become a "laver of regeneration," if our earthy food - bread and wine - can be transformed into partaking of the body and blood of Christ, if with oil we are granted the anointment of the Holy Spirit, if, to put it briefly, everything in the world can be identified, manifested and understood as a gift of God and participation in the new life, it is because all of creation was originally summoned and destined for the fulfillment of the divine economy - "then God will be all in all. - Author: Alexander Schmemann
Biblical Regeneration quotes by Alexander Schmemann
#26. The inspiration of the Bible depends upon the ignorance of the gentleman who reads it. - Author: Robert Green Ingersoll
Biblical Regeneration quotes by Robert Green Ingersoll
#27. I still believe that many Americans have a deep longing for that glorious moment when a sermon is more Biblical than American. - Author: Criss Jami
Biblical Regeneration quotes by Criss Jami
#28. Crossan also gives credence to what he calls the Cross Gospel. "Does that fare any better?" I asked. "No, most scholars don't give it credibility, because it includes such outlandishly legendary material. For instance, Jesus comes out of his tomb and he's huge - he goes up beyond the sky - and the cross comes out of the tomb and actually talks! Obviously, the much more sober gospels are more reliable than anything found in this account. It fits better with later apocryphal writings. In fact, it's dependent on biblical material, so it should be dated later. - Author: Lee Strobel
Biblical Regeneration quotes by Lee Strobel
#29. The Biblical vision is not so much concerned with life after death but about life after life after death. - Author: N. T. Wright
Biblical Regeneration quotes by N. T. Wright
#30. The second orgasm has a biblical connotation. - Author: Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Biblical Regeneration quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#31. A willingness to share our possessions with one another is a very important aspect of true biblical community. - Author: Jerry Bridges
Biblical Regeneration quotes by Jerry Bridges
