Challenging Thoughts for the Gospel read on Sunday, June 10, 2018

One might risk a comment…about the mysterious

“blasphemy against the Holy Ghost” which hath no forgiveness.

What can God Himself do for the man

who will not acknowledge the truth he knows,

or follow the light he sees?

Alexander Miller

Very religious people always shock slightly religious people

by their blasphemous attitude toward religion,

and it was precisely for blasphemy that Jesus was crucified.

R.G. Collingwood

I keep telling Shirley  MacLaine,

“You can’t go around telling people you are God.”

It’s a very difficult concept to accept.

Oprah Winfrey

God asks only one thing of you:

that you dethrone the creaturely self

and let Him be God in you.

Meister Eckhart

At a meeting of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Bobby Richardson, former New York Yankee second baseman, offered a prayer that is a classic in brevity and poignancy:

“Dear God, Your will,

nothing more,

nothing less,

nothing else.

Amen.”
