I’m continuing to stab him with it!’" ~ Timothy Keller

  • "Many are convinced, who are not truly enlightened; are afraid of the consequences of sin, though they never saw its evil; have a seeming desire of salvation, which is not founded upon a truly spiritual discovery of their own wretchedness, and the excellency of Jesus." ~ John Newton
