Knowing God is more than knowing about Him; it is a matter of dealing with Him...and being dealt with by Him as He takes knowledge of you. Knowing about Him is a necessary precondition of trusting in Him, but the width of our knowledge about Him is no gauge of our knowledge of Him. What were we made for? To know God. What aim should we have? To know God. What is the eternal life that Jesus gives? To know God. What is the best thing in life? To know God. - J.I. Packer

"In the Christian view, the ultimate evidence for the existence of God is Jesus Christ. If there is a God, we characters in his play have to hope that he put some information about himself in the play. But Christians believe he did more than give us information. He wrote himself into the play as the main character in history, when Jesus was born in a manger and rose from the dead."

You can safely assume you've created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do. — Anne Lamott

I, as a believer that Jesus of Nazareth, a Jew, the Christ of the Greeks, was the Anointed One of God (born of the seed of David, upon faith as Abraham had faith, and it was accounted to him for righteousness), am grafted onto the true vine, and am one of the heirs of God’s covenant with Israel… I’m a Christian—Don’t put me in another box. –-Johnny Cash

Good philosophy must exist, if for no other reason, because bad philosophy needs to be answered. - C.S. Lewis

It is absurd for the Evolutionist to complain that it is unthinkable for an admittedly unthinkable God to make everything out of nothing, and then pretend that it is more thinkable that nothing should turn itself into anything. - G K Chesterton

I suspect that most of the individuals who have religious faith are content with blind faith. They feel no obligation to understand what they believe. They may even wish not to have their beliefs disturbed by thought. But if God in whom they believe created them with intellectual and rational powers, that imposes upon them the duty to try to understand the creed of their religion. Not to do so is to verge on superstition. - Mortimer J. Adler

“When a plane crashes and some die while others live, a skeptic calls into question God’s moral character, saying that he has chosen some to live and others to die on a whim, yet you say it is your moral right to choose whether the child within you should live or die. Does that not sound odd to you? When God decides who should live or die, he is immoral. When you decide who should live or die, it’s your moral right.” — Ravi Zacharias

I have noticed that whenever a person gives up his belief in the Word of God because it requires that he should believe a good deal, his unbelief requires him to believe a great deal more. If there be any difficulties in the faith of Christ, they are not one-tenth as great as the absurdities in any system of unbelief which seeks to take its place. - Charles Spurgeon

There is no better explanation for the beginning of space and time, the fine-tuning of the universe from its very beginning and our planetary system, the complexity of life that could not have arisen from natural processes, the reality of objective moral laws, the inborn need in every man and woman for meaning and purpose, and the distinctions between humans and animals. “God is not dead” is certainly a logical, rational, provable statement both scientifically and philosophically. – Rice…

Sometimes I lie awake at night, and ask, 'Where have I gone wrong?' Then a voice says to me, 'This is going to take more than one night.' - Charlie Brown I can relate to Charlie Brown more often than I'd like...
