    “We look back in time. The Bible looks forward from the beginning.” ~Peter Hiett

    “No matter what data is used, we live in a universe where six days from one standpoint is several billion years from another standpoint. And indeed, all of time is an instant from the standpoint of light, and God is light.” ~Peter Hiett (The History of Time and the Genesis of You)

    “The seventh day is not over; the story is not over. We're still being made in the image of God. ... it appears that we are still living in the sixth day.” ~Peter Hiett

    "I will have nothing to do with a God who cares only occasionally. I need a God who is with us always, everywhere, in the deepest depths as well as the highest heights." ~Madeleine L'Engle

    "God's word is not under threat! In fact, if all mankind fails, truth remains intact. Truth is defined in God, it is neither challenged nor vindicated by human experience." ~Francois du Toit

    "I encourage you to realize your strength in the Master, your union with Him is your limitless resource." ~The Mirror Bible

    Eph. 1:19 =

    " I pray that you will understand beyond all comparison the magnitude of His mighty power towards us who believe."

    This is the same dynamic energy that was unleashed in Christ Jesus when He rose from the dead!

    “Salvation is not a divine transaction that takes place because you are morally perfect, but much more it is an organic unfolding, a becoming who you already are, an inborn sympathy with and capacity for, the very One who created you.” ~Richard Rohr

    “Jesus did not come to change the mind of God about humanity (it did not need changing)! Jesus came to change the mind of humanity about God.” ~ Richard Rohr

    "You can afford to be absolutely settled and rock-solid in faith’s persuasion and always ready to go beyond where you would have gone before. Your doing now is inspired by your knowing that you are in him. If his resurrection is yours then his victory over sin and death is equally yours.” ~François Du Toit

    “Man began in God. You are the greatest idea that God has ever had!” ~ François Du Toit

    “There is a poverty of the average human’s life, who is unnoticed by the world. It is the poverty of the commonplace. There is nothing heroic about it; it is the poverty of the common lot, devoid of ecstasy. Jesus was poor in this way. He was no model figure for humanists, no great artist or statesman, no diffident genius. He was a frighteningly simple man, whose only talent was to do good. The one great passion in his life was 'the Father'. Yet it was precisely in this way that he demonstrated 'the wonder of empty hands' (Bernanos), the great potential of the person on the street, whose radical dependence on God is no different from anyone else’s. He has no talent but that of his own heart, no contribution to make except self-abandonment, no consolation save God alone.” ~ Johann Baptist Metz (Poverty of Spirit)

    “Once we can accept that God is in all situations, and can and will use even bad situations for good, then everything becomes an occasion for good and an occasion for God." ~Richard Rohr

    "Heaven in its essential nature is not a locality, but a moral and spiritual dimension. Salvation is not securing one place and avoiding another, but experiencing the life of God." ~D. E. Johnson
