"We taught in the 1990's that church pastors were the spiritual gatekeepers of the city ... and we were mistaken. It is in my books and you should tear those pages out. Church pastors are very low on the influence scale in most societies ... My friend Che Ahn is seeing high influence actors coming from Hollywood to his church in Pasadena because he is equipping his people to move in arts and entertainment".

"Many modern Christians are not satisfied with Christianity as usual. They are fed up with playing church. The status quo has little appeal. Their desire is to look back at the end of the day and say; "Praise God! His Kingdom has advanced and He has allowed me to be a part of it!". They don't want to be spectators; they want to be participants in the great work that God is doing today".

"Then the LORD said to Moses, “Why are you crying out to me? Tell the Israelites to move on. Raise your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea to divide the water so that the Israelites can go through the sea on dry ground.” - Exodus 14:15-16
God did not even say, you stretch out your hand, and I will divide the sea. But God said to Moses: “Stretch out your hand over the sea, and divide it.” It was not an act for God to perform,but it was an act for Moses to believe for. The responsibility was not with God, it was with Moses. A weak Christianity is ever inclined to whine in prayer, while God waits for the believer to command it. In my judgment, that is the place of extreme weakness in Christian character. I feel that very frequently prayer is made a refuge, to dodge the action of faith".

"The Cross amazes me and fills me with wonder and worship, praise and thanksgiving! To insist on still calling myself a sinner could not add value to the Cross for me. Indeed, to call myself essentially a sinner actually dishonours the wonder of the gospel".

"This is the most intimate and sacred and precious figure of the Church’s relationship to Christ ... Christ loved the church, and gave Himself up for it; that He might sanctify it, having cleansed it by the washing of water with the word, that He might present it to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.” (Eph.5:25-27)
We see how this great truth is emphasised in the Song of Solomon, as the Bridegroom addresses the Bride, “Thou art all fair, my love; and there is no spot in thee.” (4:7.) and again, “My sister, my love, my dove, my undefiled.” That is the sort of bride He expects. The church as a bride must be pure".

"The essence of the Christian position is experience - experience of God! It is not a mere intellectual awareness or apprehension of truth. That can be of the devil ... If the experience is not an experience of the living God through His Son who has come to live and to die again in order to give it; if it is not through the Holy Spirit, it is not a true Christian experience".
Dr Martyn Lloyd-Jones - "Ephesians Chapter 6:10-13 - The Christian Warfare" - Banner of Truth, Edinburgh (1976) - (p197).
"What we mustn’t do is encourage a group of pastors to say ‘we are an apostolic team’. No you are not. You are a group of pastors. It’s very important that we don’t muddle the gifts or we come unstuck".
