Sunday

When one gives up Christian belief, one thereby gives up the right to Christian morality.....if one breaks out of it a fundamental idea, the belief in God, one thereby breaks the whole thing to pieces; one has nothing of any consequences left in one's hands. Christian morality is a command, it's origin is transcendental. It possess truth only if God is truth----it stands or falls with belief in God.
----Friedrich Nietzsche, Twilight of the Idols

Sermon on forgiveness with John MacArthur.

Like 'christian morality' is more valid than all other other belief systems? If you don't believe, you have nothing of consequence? God truth is the only truth? My way or the highway? Incredibly arrogant - the nature of fundamentalism on display.

Yep, to some it is considered arrogant...unless you believe what's written in the Bible.

It's not what I or anyone else says, Jenny, it's what God says over and over again. And of course it's our choice whether to check it out or not, and believe it or not.
