  • Jezus kwam ook voor de dwazen uit het westen. onbekend
  • The Bible is not a book for the faint of heart -- it is a book full of all the greed and glory and violence and tenderness and sex and betrayal that benefits mankind. It is not the collection of pretty little anecdotes mouthed by pious little church mice -- it does not so much nibble at our shoe leather as it cuts to the heart and splits the marrow from the bone. It does not give us answers fitted to our small-minded questions, but truth that goes beyond what we even know to ask. Rich Mullins

  • Ik geloof niet dat de Heer Jezus de kerk, jullie veelsoortige, verschillende kerken trouwens, heeft gesticht om daar verveeld te worden met getheologiseer, drenzend zingen van zonderlinge teksten, betaling van geld in zakken aan stokken en zitten op rijen naar rang en stand. Ook zal het velen ergeren dat jullie een theatrale stem opzetten als je preekt, een echte domineesstem. Het kerkbezoek neemt dan ook af. Ik geloof niet dat jullie het goed doen. In de loop van eeuwen hebben jullie een hele entourage, een heel ritueel, een hele liturgie, een heel decor ontwikkeld waarin en waarmee het geloofsleven zich moet afspelen, op zondag. Dat begint veel goedwillende en gelovige mensen te vervelen. Ze komen niet meer. Vergeef me dat ik het durf zeggen: het lijkt mij best mogelijk dat de afvalligheid niet de schuld van de mensen is, maar van jullie met jullie kerken. Er zijn ontzettend veel mensen die diep in God geloven en diep in Christus geloven maar er niet over denken om naar de kerk te gaan. Zoeken jullie de oorzaken maar eens bij jezelf. Floris Bakels, Nacht und Nebel

  • Als God ons over onverharde wegen stuurt, voorziet Hij ons van stevige schoenen. ―Corrie ten Boom

  • The biggest problem with life is that it's just daily. Rich Mullins
  • I have held many things in my hands, and have lost them all; but whatever I place in God's Hand's, I still possess. Maarten Luther

  • My deepest awareness of myself is that I am deeply loved by Jesus Christ and I have done nothing to earn it or deserve it. Brennan Manning
  • "When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing .. and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares." Henri Nouwen
  • Zij die in tranen zaaien, zullen oogsten met gejuich. Koning David, Psalm 126:5
