Quotes: on theological idolatry

Jesus-woman“If Jesus and God are one, and if to know Jesus is to know God (John 8:19), then any conception of God that doesn’t look like Jesus is an idol.”
~ Michael Hardin, The Jesus-Driven Life, (Kindle loc. 955)

“Jesus said, “I am the truth.” Truth is not a teaching; truth is a Person. And if you have that Person, you have that truth. And in that Person there’s always unity. But if we put our understanding of the Scripture, and our doctrinal views higher than the person of Jesus, and I’m going to say maybe something very sharp, and I want to say it respectfully and honorably…We worship idols.”
~ Jan Sjoerd Pasterkamp (from the movie, Furious Love)

About Mel Wild

God's favorite (and so are you), a son and a father, happily married to the same beautiful woman for 36 years. We have three incredible adult children. My passion is pursuing the Father's heart in Christ and giving it away to others. My favorite pastime is being iconoclastic and trailblazing the depths of God's grace. I'm also senior pastor of Cornerstone Church in Wisconsin.
