“Those who trade liberty for security have neither.” ~ John Adams

THOUGHTS/IDEAS

“Christianity is not about how to escape from the difficulties of life – it is about how to face the difficulties of life.” ~ Alistair Begg

“I am weaker and more sinful than I ever before believed, but through Jesus Christ I’m more loved and accepted than I ever dared hope.” ~ Alistair Begg

“Faith is not a soft option offered to people who need a crutch to get through the rest of their lives. Faith is the supernatural activity of God whereby He opens blind eyes, unstops deaf ears, and a man or a woman says- “I see it now. I get it now. I am going to trust in God. I am going to trust in Jesus.” ~ Alistair Begg
