Ben Witherington III Quotes

"Is the Lords Supper only for Christians? Whenever I ask this question I immediately remember the character of those that partook of the Last Supper with Jesus. They were certainly Jews, some better Jews than others, but Jesus shared this meal knowingly even with Judas. Or again consider the Emmaus Road encounter. Jesus shares this meal with those who had given up on his being the One to redeem Israel, who were leaving Jerusalem downcast and disappointed, and who were oblivious to the fact that it was Jesus who was speaking and sharing with them! There has to be a balance in the liturgy to help the congregation make a decision if they themselves are ready to partake of this Meal in a worthy manner (hence the ye who do truly and earnestly repent clause), while at the same time joyfully welcoming all who are willing and ready and able to do so."

Quotes About Socialists

"A consciousness of rectitude can be a terrible thing, and in those days I didnt just think that I was right: I thought that "we" (our group of International Socialists in particular) were being damn well proved right.

Quotes About Macon Dead

"Everyone will have gone then except us, because were tied to this soil by a roomful of trunks where the household goods and clothing of grandparents are kept, and the canopies that my parenrs horses used when they came to Macondo, fleeing from the war. Weve been sown into this soil by the memory of the remote dead whose bones can no longer be found twenty fathoms under the earth. The trunks have been in the room ever since the last days of the war; and theyll be there this afternoon when we come back from the burial, if that final wind hasnt passed, the one that will sweep away Macondo, its bedrooms full of lizards and its silent people devastated by memories." - Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez

Quotes About Repentance To God

"He had in his Bronx apartment a lodger less learned than himself, and much fiercer in piety. One day when we were studying the laws of repentance together, the lodger burst from his room. "What!" he said. "The atheists guzzles his whiskey and eats pork and wallows with women all his life long, and then repents the day before he dies and stands guiltless? While I spend a lifetime trying to please God?" My grandfather pointed to the book. "So it is written," he said gently.—"Written!" the lodger roared. "There are books and there are books." And he slammed back into his room.The lodgers outrage seemed highly logical. My grandfather pointed out afterward that cancelling the past does not turn it into a record of achievement. It leaves it blank, a waste of spilled years. A man had better return, he said, while time remains to write a life worth scanning. And since no man knows his death day, the time to get a grip on his life is the first hour when the impulse strikes him." - Author: Herman Wouk

Quotes About Wealth And Money
