“So many Christians, or people who call themselves Christians in our country, are so incredibly weird.  And I don’t mean weird in a good way like we stand out as a light unto the world.  I’m just saying weird socially.  Extremely weird socially.  … We just cluster together and start talking about our stuff and it’s most comfortable, and we don’t really try to get into other people’s worlds out there.”

[On the death of Absalom]

maliailam:

When they broke the news to David, it broke his heart, just as simple as that, and he cried out in words that have echoed down the centuries ever since. “O my son Absalom, my son, my son,” he said. “Would I had died instead of you, O Absalom, my son, my son” (II Samuel 18:33).

He meant it, of course. If he could have done the boy’s dying for him, he would have done it. If he could have paid the price for the boy’s betrayal of him, he would have paid it. If he could have given his own life to make the boy alive again, he would have given it. But even a king can’t do things like that. As later history was to prove, it takes the King himself.

"Some Christians try to go to heaven alone, in solitude. But believers are not compared to bears or lions or other animals that wander alone. Those who belong to Christ are sheep in this respect, that they love to get together. Sheep go in flocks, and so do God’s people."

"If you left the Church to get away from hypocritical people, you should also quit your job, drop out of school, disconnect yourself from all your friends and family, and lock yourself in your room while you’re at it. There will be flaws wherever there are humans. And, in fact, the Church is the only establishment on earth with the solution for this issue."
