Nothing that ever happens to man is natural, since his presence calls the whole world into question.

We can talk, try to theorize, theologize, reason, argue, debate, and spend time trying to prove that Jesus lived, but that won’t win a heart. How often do we see the religious mindset that believes that the more Scripture quoting, the more yelling, the more hell fire and brimstone preaching, the greater the chance to win someone over for the Kingdom? Likewise, how often do we see people sitting or standing there listening in stone-cold silence or indifference?” ~ Todd Bentley

Isn’t that partly what breeds the Sutcliffes and the Nilsens?” ~ Antony Sher
  24. “My point is Trump is Trump. He’s the same guy wherever he is. But the reporting on him on the Middle East trip is nowhere near like the reporting on Trump when he’s in Washington. There aren’t any leaks. For example, we haven’t yet seen a story quoting unnamed sources in the Saudi government saying that the king was profoundly embarrassed when Trump asked if there was a McDonald’s nearby.” ~ Rush Limbaugh , Quoting quotes with an example
  25. “The only thing worse than quoting me, is not quoting me” ~ Oscar Wilde

They knew who they were killing.” ~ Robert Fisk

Here you have a bunch of bloggers who are not even quoting any feminists’ works who are telling me what I can do better when I’ve been doing this as my life’s work while y’all still in college! What are you talking about? And their criticism was of the idea that we should approach people like Rick Ross and Lil’ Wayne with love when they have lyrics that we don’t like, as opposed to approaching them with hate.

In addition to this being true for John McCain and Barack Obama, it was true for Hillary Clinton as well.” ~ Paul Kengor
