You have one life, what’s it all about?

 To all my friends who are not really sure about this whole Christian thing, I invite you to explore Christianity. To quote the drug dealers from my old neighborhood, “no pressure, just try it out.”

"When a man opens the car door for his wife, he is doing far more than just getting the door open. It is not a matter of utility. It is not a question of pragmatics. Granted, we could save energy all around if both individuals opened their own doors. But he is making a statement in addition to getting the door open. He is disciplining his own heart and soul, which need it, and he is honoring his wife, who is glorified by it. The role of the man here, if we may speak this way, is not just to get the door open. His central role is the liturgical act of saying that women everywhere should be held in honor by men, and that he adds his amen to this, as everyone in the parking lot at Costco can now see."

It’s a mistake to read the Bible and think it’s primarily about you and what you should do for your own benefit.

Instead, it’s a book primarily written about Jesus and what He accomplished for His benefit and His glory.

We are the lucky background characters in the story, not the leading role.

(Luke 24:27; John 1:45. 5:39 and Prov 16:4; Eze 36: 21-32; Isa 43:5-7, 48:9-11; Rom 11:36)

Great book so far, love Packer! (Taken with instagram)

"Spirituality can be a cheap substitute for righteousness." -R.C. Sproul

Christians often say studying theology is just useless nitpicking of the Bible and instead we should focus on living the right way.

There should not be a contradiction between the two, for a “good” lifestyle with terrible theology is just as dangerous as a bad lifestyle with “good” theology.

Are virgins worth more?

Someone asked the following question:

I’m confused, does Lord forgive the women who’ve been with someone before? and then grace them with virgine husbands?

I often like to see myself as a hero but truth is I am a villain. Jesus is the hero.
