Who is the Greatest Saint?

Here’s another great quote I came across…

Would you know who is the greatest saint in the world? it is not he who prays most or fasts most; It is not he who gives most alms or is most eminent for temperance, chastity, or justice; but it is he who is always thankful to God, who wills everything that God wills, who receives everything as an instance of God’s goodness and has a heart always ready to praise God for it.

— William Law

Apostasy vs. Relevancy

Just a quote I came across today that I think is so true:

“Some churches, for certain, abandon many of the cardinal truths of the faith in their quest to be relevant to the community they serve. But even more churches are woefully unaware of the realities, hope, and pains of those around us. Failure to be true to the doctrines of the Christian faith leads to apostasy. Failure to understand the world in which we live and serve leads to irrelevancy.” – Thom Rainer, president of Lifeway Christian Resources, in Outreach magazine
