Thoughts of God

Fresh from the journey of Lent I am not in any hurry to start blogging again, as such, but I will begin to share some good quotes that I have come across.

“Then exactly what are good thoughts concerning God?” Ignorance wanted to know.

Christian said, “…When our thoughts of God agree with what the Word says aboiut Him, then they are good thoughts. That means when we think of His character and attributes as the Word teaches.

“However, to speak of Him concerning ourselves, when we understad that He knows us better than we know ourselves, and that He can see sin in us when and where we can see none in ourselves; and when we understand that He knows our inmost thoughts, and that He at all times sees into the depths of our heart; and when we think that all our righteousness stinks in His nostrils, and that for this reason even with our best performance we still cannot stand before Him with any confidence, then our thoughts are good…”

Some are More Equal

‘All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others.’

~ George Orwell, Animal Farm

‘I met with leaders of religious groups, who are Roman Catholic, Protestant, Muslim, Hindu and Buddhist… When I asked them about the status of women, almost all responded that within their own religious group, women are treated as equal, but considered to be either separate or different. This reminded me of my childhood days when black people were legally considered separate but equal; they were kept largely separate and certainly not treated as equals.’

 ~ Jimmy Carter

A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence and Power

‘For you are all children of God, through faith in Christ Jesus… There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.’
