A philosopher is a blind man in a dark room looking for a black cat that isn’t there. A theologian is the man who finds it.
~ H.L. Mencken
The more we know of God, the more unreservedly we will trust Him; the greater our progress in theology, the simpler and more childlike will be our faith.
~ J. Gresham Machen
What we believe about God is the most important thing about us.
~ A.W. Tozer
We are more at home with our own ideas about religion—with thoughts which are more comfortable and reassuring, with a “god” who is rather like us and who can be brought into line with our own expectations. This God is domesticated—like a religious “pet” rather than the wild, untamed presence of the Almighty.
~ David Hewetson and David Miller, in Christianity Made Simple
You can cite a hundred references to show that the biblical God is a bloodthirsty tyrant, but if they can dig up two or three verses that say, “God is love,” they will claim that you are taking things out of context!
~Dan Barker, in Losing Faith in Faith
