Favorite quotes:
The gospel must always be defended, and sometimes it must be rescued. ~ Erwin Lutzer
The only way the Reformation could possibly not still matter would be if beauty, goodness, truth, joy, and human flourishing no longer mattered. We have been made to enjoy God, but without the great truths the Reformers fought for that display him as glorious and enjoyable, we shall not do so. Seeing less of him, we shall be lesser and sadder. Seeing more of him, we shall be fuller and happier. ~ Michael Reeves & Tim Chester
