All Christians are stewards of the Gospel …

“All Christians are stewards of the Gospel, commanded to share the message with all men. God will hold each Christian accountable for how he has handled the Gospel message.”
– from p.82 of book “If The Foundations Are Destroyed” by K. Alan Snyder.

“Christians get in trouble when they conform to the world’s thinking and ignore principles. They are tempted not to cause waves, forgetting that the world already is a turbulent place and that men are – whether they realize it or not – for the stability of fixed principles. These principles can come only from the Christians, from those who base all decisions upon Biblical truth.”

– from p.29 of book “If The Foundations Are Destroyed” by K. Alan Snyder.

Truthfulness is based on love …

“Truthfulness is based on love. To be truthful is to state reality at all times, to be free from falsehood and deception. It is never loving to be untruthful, even when it seems like it might be best to engage in a “white lie.” Jesus said of the Father, “Thy word is truth.” Of Himself He declared, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life.” Of the Holy Spirit, He claimed, “But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth.” Paul instructs Christians to speak the truth in love and warns them to lay aside falsehood and “speak truth, each one of you, with his neighbor, for we are members of one another.” God’s love requires truthfulness.”

– from p.135 of book “If The Foundations Are Destroyed” by K. Alan Snyder.

Just as one generation could …

“Just as one generation could prevent the very existence of the next generation, by all entering a monastery or jumping into the sea, so one set of thinkers can in some degree prevent further thinking by teaching the next generation that there is no validity in any human thought. It is idle to talk always of the alternative of reason and faith. Reason
is itself a matter of faith. It is an act of faith to assert that our thoughts have any relation to reality at all. If you are merely a sceptic, you must sooner or later ask yourself the question, ‘Why should anything go right; even observation or deduction? Why should not good logic be as misleading as bad logic? They are both movements in the brain of a bewildered ape?’ The young sceptic says, ‘I have a right to think for myself.’ But the old sceptic, the complete sceptic, says, ‘I have no right to think for myself. I have no right to think at all.'”

– G. K. Chesterton
