“To be in this world is to be in the realm of fallen and accursed peoples; this is unavoidable in history because it is the battleground between good and evil. There are no sidelines in this battle, and the casualties are grim, but the victory of the Kingdom of God is inevitable and inescapable.” – R. J. Rushdoony
“The struggle we have with a holy God is rooted in the conflict between God’s righteousness and our unrighteousness. He is just, and we are unjust. This tension creates fear, hostility, and anger within us toward God. The unjust person does not desire the company of a just judge. We become fugitives, fleeing from the presence of the One whose glory can blind us and whose justice can condemn us. We are at war with Him unless or until we are justified. Only the justified person can be comfortable in the presence of a holy God.” – from p.180 of “The Holiness of God” by R. C. Sproul.
“When a human being tries to consecrate what God has never consecrated, it is not a genuine act of consecration. It is an act of desecration. It is an act of idolatry.” – from p.50 of “The Holiness of God” by R. C. Sproul.
“I have had just enough of the majesty of God to want more. I know what it means to be a forgiven man and what it means to be sent on a mission. My soul cries for more. My soul needs more.” – from p.41,42 of “The Holiness of God” by R. C. Sproul.
