Tony Evans Quotes

"Too many of us are too comfortable in our "Jesus lifeboat." Instead of the church preparing its members to reach out to other people who are still in the water and pulling them into the boat, we have settled in for the ride to heaven and are busy coming up with ways to make the trip more comfortable. We go to church each week and worship God because we are saved and safe, forgetting that the lifeboat is not yet full."

Till now, for him, the luxury of this ease had been perfect.

Quotes About Prostrate

"Once there lived in the ancient city of Afkar two learned men who hated and belittled each others learning. For one of them denied the existence of the gods and the other was a believer.One day the two met in the market-place, and amidst their followers they began to dispute and to argue about the existence or the non-existence of the gods. And after hours of contention they parted.That evening the unbeliever went to the temple and prostrated himself before the altar and prayed the gods to forgive his wayward past.And the same hour the other learned man, he who had upheld the gods, burned his sacred books. For he had become an unbeliever." - Author: Kahlil Gibran
