The whole point of Christianity…

It is worth noting that the whole point of Christianity lies not in interference with the human power to choose, but in producing a willing consent to choose good rather than evil.

J. B. Phillips, quoted in The God Conversation by J. P. Moreland and Tim Muehlhoff, p. 27

To trust Him means…

To trust Him means, of course, trying to do all that he says. There would be no sense in saying you trusted a person if you would not take his advice.

C. S. Lewis, quoted by Greg Koukl in The Story of Reality,  kindle location 2152

Repentance involves a change of direction…

Repentance involves a change of direction. You are turning from a life of selfishness and self-centeredness in which you (or other idols) are the center of everything to a life where God is the center and you (and everything else) are under him.

Greg Koukl, from The Story of Reality, kindle location 2149

Christianity is the Story of…

Christianity is the Story of how the world began, why the world is the way it is, what role we play in the drama, and how all the plotlines of the Story are resolved in the end.

Greg Koukl, from The Story of Reality, kindle location 382

Christianity is a picture of reality…

The correct answer to the question “What is Christianity?” is this: Christianity is a picture of reality. It is an account or a description or a depiction of the way things actually are. It is not just a view from the inside (a Christian’s personal feelings or religious beliefs or spiritual affections or ethical views or “relationship” with God). It is also a view of the outside. It is a view of the world out there, of how the world really is in itself.

It is truest to the facts…

Christianity has compelled the mind of man not because it is the most cheering view of man’s existence, but because it is truest to the facts.

Dorothy Sayers, quoted in Religion on Trial by Craig Parton, p. 81

Christianity which if false…

Christianity is a statement which, if false, is of no importance, and, if true, is of infinite importance. The one thing it cannot be is moderately important.

C. S. Lewis, quoted in Cold-Case Christianity by J. Warner Wallace, Loc. 155
