David H Chilton Quotes

"There is a very important connection between the Churchs worldview and the Churchs hymns. If your heart and mouth are filled with songs of victory, you will tend to have an eschatology of dominion; if, instead, your songs are fearful, expressing a longing for escape-or if they are weak, childish ditties-your worldview and expectations will be escapist and childish. Historically, the basic hymnbook for the Church has been the Book of Psalms. The largest book of the Bible is the Book of Psalms, and God providentially placed it right in the middle of the Bible, so that we couldnt miss it! Yet how many churches use the Psalms in musical worship? It is noteworthy that the Churchs abandonment of dominion eschatology coincided with the Churchs abandonment of the Psalms."

Quotes About Personal Insults

"KarmaWhen people insult you, dont take offense, dont take it personally, but do listen to their words. They are telling you how they see the world, and they are telling you the exact negative qualities that they possess.

Release the need to defend or try to explain to them that youre not being whatever-nasty-insult-theyve-thrown-at-you, but evaluate instead all of these insults, and realize that this is who they are.Then, decide if a person with those qualities is one who youd like in your life or not." - Author: Doe Zantamata
