"4 Voices About the Power of the Word in Our Lives and Churches"Eric Geiger
"D.L. Moody famously quipped that “the Bible will keep you from sin or sin will keep you from the Bible.” George Mueller said, “The vigor of our spiritual life will be in direct proportion to the place held by our Bible in our life and thoughts.” Both of these incredible spiritual leaders would strongly agree that we cannot and will not build spiritually healthy people in our churches, in our groups, and in our families apart from the Scripture."

In this sense, we all live in Marx’s world now."

"Hell is a Human Choice"– Greg Laurie
"Tell them about what Christ has done for you. Tell them about the hope of Heaven. Tell them about the forgiveness of sin. And tell them what the repercussions are if they don’t believe. Don’t leave that out. Don’t dilute it. We have the hope of Heaven, but we don’t want anyone to go to Hell."
