Marriage brings face to face two people committed to God whose face is distinctively revealed in each as they see each other in the light of God, shining on each countenance. God brought them close to each other because each was the other's answer from God, to rescue them from being alone.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: Marriage brings face to face two people committed to God whose face is distinctively revealed
It is a mindless philosophy that assumes that one's private beliefs have nothing to do with public office. Does it make sense to entrust those who are immoral in private with the power to determine the nation's moral issues and, indeed, its destiny? One of the most dangerous and terrifying trends in America today is the disregard for character as a central necessity in a leader's credentials. The duplicitous soul of a leader can only make a nation more sophisticated in evil.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: It is a mindless philosophy that assumes that one's private beliefs have nothing to do
I am convinced, in the words of C. S. Lewis - who in my estimation is probably the greatest Christian apologist in recent memory - that the question of being an apologist is not so much whether you use an apologetic in answering someone's question, but whether the apologetic you already use is a good one.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: I am convinced, in the words of C. S. Lewis - who in my estimation
More than anything else, prayer enables you to see your own heart and brings you into alignment with God's heart. Prayer is not a monologue in which we imagine ourselves to be communing with God. Rather, it is a dialogue through which God fashions your heart and makes his dream of you a reality. It is truly the treasured gift of the Christian that through direct answers and not-so-direct answers, the follower of Jesus begins to love God for who he is, not for what he may get out of him.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: More than anything else, prayer enables you to see your own heart and brings you
Pain can easily produce the sense of being abandoned. The presence of someone who loves and cares can most persuasively counter that fear. God's words were important to Job, but most important to him was the assurance that God was with him through it all, revealing Himself to Job at the most critical moment. And Job said, "My ears had heard of you but now my eyes have seen you" (Job 42:5).Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: Pain can easily produce the sense of being abandoned. The presence of someone who loves
The purpose of prayer and of God's call in your life isn't to make you number one in the world's eyes but to make Him number one in your life.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: The purpose of prayer and of God's call in your life isn't to make you
In his play "Long Day's Journey into Night, " Eugene O'Neill has one of his characters utter a powerful statement toward the end of her life: "None of us can help the things life has done to us.

One of the most staggering truths of the Scriptures is to understand that we do not earn our way to heaven ... works have a place

Faith is wonderful for when you understand it's meaning, it understands you and it takes you where you are destined to be. A rare phenomenon for we keep losing it before it extends its reach but if you have faith in the word, you don't follow it, faith follows you. I have seen it happen and I can vouch for it. #MyExperiencewith498ARavi Ranjan Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Ranjan: Faith is wonderful for when you understand it's meaning, it understands you and it takes
Familiar words for dead black boys portrayed as complicit in their own demise.

Michael Donald's
David talked often about how discouraged or fearful he would become at times. Then he would interject these words, "But then I entered the sanctuary..." Being in God's presence affects all other relationships for the better. To have first seen her husband in prayer surely remained a cherish moment for Rebekah.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: David talked often about how discouraged or fearful he would become at times. Then he
I do not believe that one can earnestly seek and find the priceless treasure of God's call without a devout prayer life. Each of us is the temple of the Lord, and it was the Lord who said, "My house will be called a house of prayer" (Isaiah 56:7). That is where God speaks. The purpose of prayer and of God's call in your life is not to make you number one in the world's eyes, but to make him number one in your life. His calling is perfect, and he has a specific place for each one.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: I do not believe that one can earnestly seek and find the priceless treasure of
When I do things my way, I exhaust pleasure very quickly. It is not that Christianity has failed to teach me how to delight in God's presence; it is that I have failed by seeking pleasure through godless ways or by resisting God's provision for me because it is not what I want.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: When I do things my way, I exhaust pleasure very quickly. It is not that
Sometimes in the shadows of one's self lie the problems, and in the shadows of one's shaping lie the answers.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: Sometimes in the shadows of one's self lie the problems, and in the shadows of
Religious pluralism is a popular belief in Western culture. At first it sounds very inclusive, but it is really just as exclusive as any other claims. Religious pluralists are those who argue that the "real God" is actually a mix of the gods of all the religions combined (ie. the Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Sikh, Jehovah's Witness; and we can even throw in ancient Greek gods). By mixing all the major religions, they are discounting the exclusive truth claims to which religions strictly adhere.Jon Morrison Ravi's Sayings By Jon Morrison: Religious pluralism is a popular belief in Western culture. At first it sounds very inclusive,
The Scriptures categorically state that the problem with such people is not the absence of evidence; it is, rather, the suppression of it. The message of Jesus Christ shifts the charge of insufficiency from the volume of evidence to the intent of one's will.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: The Scriptures categorically state that the problem with such people is not the absence of
Sourav's greatest asset is his ability to communicate. He is a naturally very confident person. He encourages his team, is a great motivator and a born captain. He is not the media's blue eyed boy because he is a very straightforward person, who never minces his words, instead he talks in a no nonsense manner to the press. He shares an extremely healthy rapport with his teammates. His leadership skills are also vouched for by the youngsters in the team. He has phenomenal brand value. He's the new-age Indian, an aggressive go-getter, full of self-belief, determination.Ravi Shastri Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Shastri: Sourav's greatest asset is his ability to communicate. He is a naturally very confident person.
A calling is simply God's shaping of your burden and beckoning you to your service to him in the place and pursuit of his choosing.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: A calling is simply God's shaping of your burden and beckoning you to your service
It is easier to hide behind philosophical arguments, heavily footnoted for effect, than it is to admit our hurts, our confusions, our loves, and our passions in the marketplace of life's heartfelt transactions.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: It is easier to hide behind philosophical arguments, heavily footnoted for effect, than it is
if there is any part of our lives that we haven't turned over to Christ, the devil reminds him, 'No, that one isn't totally yours. I still have this patch of ground here.' "Jesus is totally committed to us. And until we learn to be totally surrendered to him, we'll never find the joy of what it means to fully belong to him. That is the key to every believer's life - full ownership by Christ. Everything we are and want to be belong to him. "The Lord wants to have ownership of your life. If there is anything hindering this from happening, I invite you to come forward now and lay it before Christ.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: if there is any part of our lives that we haven't turned over to Christ,

Love combined with wisdom is bliss, and that is devotion. Devotion is a strong bond, a sense of belongingness. Everybody is born with it. It's just like becoming a child againSri Sri Ravi Shankar Ravi's Sayings By Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: Love combined with wisdom is bliss, and that is devotion. Devotion is a strong bond,
Culture is critical in marriage because in a real sense, culture is the behavioral expression of one's values, appreciations, tastes, and relational style in both simple and serious matters of life. Add to this the dimensions of language and cultural memory, and you have worlds within worlds. In effect, culture provides the how and why of an individual's behavior.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: Culture is critical in marriage because in a real sense, culture is the behavioral expression
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 Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: When a plane crashes and some die while others live, a skeptic calls into question
As I write, My fingers tap tap the keys the way Ravi Shankar's fingers pluck and strum the strings of his sitar.Christina Westover Ravi's Sayings By Christina Westover: As I write, My fingers tap tap the keys the way Ravi Shankar's fingers pluck
One often sees a call only in retrospect. This too is God's design. God often reinforces our faith after we trust him, not before.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: One often sees a call only in retrospect. This too is God's design. God often
You see misery, you see misfortune, you see pain, you see suffering. It's all part of the fatalistic way of looking at life.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: You see misery, you see misfortune, you see pain, you see suffering. It's all part
That is what a well-guarded prayer life can reveal about us, that our trust is not in ourselves but in seeking God's strength for what we do. Prayer is not a substitute for action, but prayer undergirds action with the strength that makes the difference.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: That is what a well-guarded prayer life can reveal about us, that our trust is
Here is life's essential purpose - to worship God in spirit and in truth (see John 4:24). All other purposes are meant to be secondary. When they become primary, they destroy the individual.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: Here is life's essential purpose - to worship God in spirit and in truth (see
Meditation is not 'going somewhere;' it's diving deep here, this moment.Sri Sri Ravi Shankar Ravi's Sayings By Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: Meditation is not 'going somewhere;' it's diving deep here, this moment.
Marriage brings together not just a man and his wife but their children and their struggles. To suddenly drop the partner who has carried that load with you along life's journey for all these years for someone with no strings or worries attached is cruel. Marriage is not a commercial enterprise in which you replace a car you have tired of with another one.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: Marriage brings together not just a man and his wife but their children and their
Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God's" (v. 15). This verse is the middle verse of the Old Testament and rightly so, for it gives the assurance that when we trust in God He will fight for us. The battle is not ours; it is His.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is
To consume the best for yourself and give the crumbs to God is blasphemy. A heart that truly worships is a heart that gives its best to God in time and substance. A heart that truly worships God gives generously to the causes of God
causes that God cares deeply about. I have to wonder whether someday we may wake up to discover that all our incestous spending on ourselves and our frantic construction of excessively luxurious places of worship
even as we ignore, for the most part, the hurting and the deprived of the world
filled God's heart with pain.
Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: To consume the best for yourself and give the crumbs to God is blasphemy. A
They are teachers who point to their teaching or show some particular way. In all of these, there emerges an instruction, a way of living. It is not Zoroaster to whom you turn. It is Zoroaster to whom you listen. It is not Buddha who delivers you; it is his Noble Truths that instruct you. It is not Mohammed who transforms you; it is the beauty of the Koran that woos you. By contrast, Jesus did not only teach or expound His message. He was identical with His message. "In Him," say the Scriptures, "dwelt the fullness of the Godhead bodily." He did not just proclaim the truth. He said, "I am the truth." He did not just show a way. He said, "I am the Way." He did not just open up vistas. He said, "I am the door." "I am the Good Shepherd." "I am the resurrection and the life." "I am the I AM." In Him is not just an offer of life's bread. He is the bread. That is why being a Christian is not just a way of feeding and living. Following Christ begins with a way of relating and being.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: They are teachers who point to their teaching or show some particular way. In all
Lord Shiva is seated deep in everyone's heart. He is Nirguna (One who is without form or its attributes). He is Nirakaar (Has no shape or form), and He is the Para-Brahman (Supreme transcendental Consciousness) that is all pervading. Believe in this. This is Rudra PujaSri Sri Ravi Shankar Ravi's Sayings By Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: Lord Shiva is seated deep in everyone's heart. He is Nirguna (One who is without
Islam from the beginning was primarily predisposed toward one particular people. There is very little doubt that in its inception, Islam was a geopolitical reaction to the other groups around them. Even those sympathetic to Islam, such as Ali Dashti, the noted Iranian journalist, comment that the greatest miracle in Islam is that it gave Mohammed's followers an identity, something they had lacked as various warring tribal groups. The very language of the Koran is restrictive. To claim that Mohammed's only miracle was the Koran and then to state that one cannot recognize the miracle unless one knows the language makes a miracle anything but universal. How can a "prophet to the world" be so narrowly restricted to a language group? The Koran, it is said, is only inspired in the original language - no other language can bear the miracle. The narrowness of its ethnic appeal cannot be ignored.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: Islam from the beginning was primarily predisposed toward one particular people. There is very little
The grace of forgiveness, because God Himself has paid the price, is a Christian distinctive and stands splendidly against our hate-filled, unforgiving world. God's forgiveness gives us a fresh start.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: The grace of forgiveness, because God Himself has paid the price, is a Christian distinctive
She got herself a boyfriend she wants us to meet. He's studying chemistry. A senior. She said that 3 or 4 times on the phone. Senior. Like it's supposed to mean something to me, as long as I been grown. Senior ain't nothing but a year. Young man's distinction.Ravi Howard Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Howard: She got herself a boyfriend she wants us to meet. He's studying chemistry. A senior.
The day that each person willingly accepts himself or herself for who he or she is and acknowledges the uniqueness of God's framing process marks the beginning of a journey to seeing the handiwork of God in each life.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: The day that each person willingly accepts himself or herself for who he or she
When attention is given to the spiritual aspect of one's life, it brings a sense of belongingness, and responsibility, compassion and caring for the whole of humanity.Sri Sri Ravi Shankar Ravi's Sayings By Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: When attention is given to the spiritual aspect of one's life, it brings a sense
Chivalry in love has nothing to do with the sweetness of the appearance. It has everything to do with the tenderness of a heart determined to serve. You must not act under the impetus of charm, but out of a commitment to make someone's life the joy you want it to be.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: Chivalry in love has nothing to do with the sweetness of the appearance. It has
Christianity is not a political theory. It is not even a cultural theory. It is, at its root, all about changing the heart of each man and woman, boy and girl, so that we begin to think God's thoughts and act in accordance with his character.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: Christianity is not a political theory. It is not even a cultural theory. It is,
Without speaking, one can win the trust of a person by one's conductRavi Ranjan Goswami Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Ranjan Goswami: Without speaking, one can win the trust of a person by one's conduct
When you say there's too much evil in this world you assume there's good. When you assume there's good, you assume there's such a thing as a moral law on the basis of which to differentiate between good and evil. But if you assume a moral law, you must posit a moral Law Giver, but that's Who you're trying to disprove and not prove. Because if there's no moral Law Giver, there's no moral law. If there's no moral law, there's no good. If there's no good, there's no evil. What is your question?Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: When you say there's too much evil in this world you assume there's good. When
Bahaism gives you a pluralistic view, and a lot of aspects of Hinduism give you a moral framework with no accountability other than the karmic system. There's no linear movement or point of accountability toward God.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: Bahaism gives you a pluralistic view, and a lot of aspects of Hinduism give you
The longer I am in this work, the more I realize that intellectual struggles are merely the hazardous waste of life, blocking the heart from truth. The task of apologetics is to carefully remove that hazardous material and keep it from igniting into a destructive fire. Once that is done, the way to the heart is always through the way of the Cross, God's love for each and every one of us.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: The longer I am in this work, the more I realize that intellectual struggles are
If you turn back time and look, 5100 years ago in the Bhagavad Gita, Lord Krishna did the same thing. He has been the first HR manager India knows. When Arjuna was so depressed and was not ready to do his job, Lord Krishna was with him in the battlefield, and told him all sorts of things. First, He warned Arjuna that people would blame him for sure. Then He incited Arjuna's ego and tried to wake him up. And then He offered His disciple different incentives, saying, "If you win, you will have the kingdom. If you lose, you will enjoy Heaven. Come on, fight." In many ways, Lord Krishna lifted Arjuna out of that depression.Sri Sri Ravi Shankar Ravi's Sayings By Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: If you turn back time and look, 5100 years ago in the Bhagavad Gita, Lord
The radically changed behavior of the disciples after the resurrection is the best evidence of the resurrection," declares Thomas C. Oden of Drew University. "Some hypothesis is necessary to make plausible the transformation of the disciples from grieving followers of a crucified messiah to those whose resurrection preaching turned the world upside down. That change could not have happened, according to the church's testimony, without the risen Lord.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: The radically changed behavior of the disciples after the resurrection is the best evidence of
It is a self-evident truth that a person who truly prays and seeks God's wisdom in life recognizes the sovereignty of God and is committed to seeking God's wisdom in life's important choices.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: It is a self-evident truth that a person who truly prays and seeks God's wisdom
Human rights means protecting another's freedom, seeing that the other person is also like oneself. Human rights is giving others security, letting them live.Sri Sri Ravi Shankar Ravi's Sayings By Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: Human rights means protecting another's freedom, seeing that the other person is also like oneself.
This is the latest approach by antitheistic thinkers who seek to explain good and evil apart from God. Over the years naturalists first denied causality as an argument to prove God's existence: Why do we have to have a cause? Why can't the universe just be? Then they denied design as an argument for God's existence: Why do we need a designer? Why could it not have all just come together with the appearance of design? Now they deny morality as an argument for God's existence: Why do we need to posit a moral law or a moral law source? Why can't it just be a pragmatic reality? This I find fascinating! They want a cause for suffering or a design for suffering, but they have already denied that either of these is necessary to account for every effect. ThisRavi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: This is the latest approach by antitheistic thinkers who seek to explain good and evil
More and more, when something terrible happens, we declare, "That's life!" - as though disappointment and heartache declare the sum total of this existence. We miss the roses and see only the thorns. We take for granted the warmth of the sun and get depressed by the frequency of the rain or the snow. We ignore the sounds of life in a nursery because we are preoccupied with the sounds of sirens responding to an emergency. We forget the marvel of a marriage that has endured the test of time because we feel discouraged by the heartaches of loved ones whose marriages didn't make it to the end.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: More and more, when something terrible happens, we declare, "That's life!" - as though disappointment
I haven't got an opportunity to experiment with the dimensions of my moustache much. But yes, if the role demands, I'm ready to shave it off. I feel it's good to have moustaches for South films, but I'd love to remove my moustache; why not?Ravi Teja Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Teja: I haven't got an opportunity to experiment with the dimensions of my moustache much. But
Having the answers is not essential to living. What is essential is the sense of God's presence during dark seasons of questioning.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: Having the answers is not essential to living. What is essential is the sense of
For a seeker, Guru Purnima is a day of significance, is a day of New Year. It is the day to review one's progress on the spiritual path and renew one's determination and focus on the goal, and to resolve what one wants to do in the coming yearSri Sri Ravi Shankar Ravi's Sayings By Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: For a seeker, Guru Purnima is a day of significance, is a day of New
Everyone - pantheist, atheist, skeptic, polytheist - has to answer these questions: 'Where did I come from? What is life's meaning? How do I define right from wrong and what happens to me when I die?' Those are the fulcrum points of our existence.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: Everyone - pantheist, atheist, skeptic, polytheist - has to answer these questions: 'Where did I
None of us like the concept of law because none of us like the restraints it puts on us. But when we understand that God has given us his law to aid us in guarding our souls, we see that the law is for our fulfillment, not for our limitation. The law reminds us that some things, some experiences, some relationships are sacred. When everything has been profaned, it is not just my freedom that has been lost- the loss is everyone's. God gave us the law to remind us of the sacredness of life, and our created legal systems only serve to remind us of the profane judgments we make.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: None of us like the concept of law because none of us like the restraints
I want to do Hindi films, but a proper one and a good production. I'm even open to multi-starrers because those work better in Bollywood. But it should be with only Bollywood technicians, not the South Indian team. There's no point to my going to Bollywood if I work with the same artistes and technicians.Ravi Teja Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Teja: I want to do Hindi films, but a proper one and a good production. I'm
Opinions are preferences amid options. Convictions are woven into one's conscience.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: Opinions are preferences amid options. Convictions are woven into one's conscience.
Listen to this incredible explanation by one of atheism's champions, Richard Dawkins, of Oxford: In a universe of blind physical forces and genetic replication, some people are going to get hurt, other people are going to get lucky, and you won't find any rhyme or reason in it, nor any justice. The universe we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at the bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil and no other good. Nothing but blind, pitiless indifference. DNA neither knows nor cares. DNA just is. And we dance to its music.5Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: Listen to this incredible explanation by one of atheism's champions, Richard Dawkins, of Oxford: In
I don't attend parties. After the day's shoot, I go home and spend time with my family. I never take my work home, and neither do I involve my family in work.Ravi Teja Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Teja: I don't attend parties. After the day's shoot, I go home and spend time with
I left the altar rail and went back to the pew where the others were kneeling like four shadows, four unrealities, and I hid my face in my hands. In the temple of God that I had just become, the once eternal and pure sacrifice was offered up to the God dwelling in me. The sacrifice of God to God. Now, Christ born in me, a new Bethlehem, and sacrificed in me his new Calvary, and risen in me: offering me to the Father, in himself, asking the Father, my Father and his, to receive me into his infinite and special love - not the love he has for all things that exist, for mere existence is a token of God's love, but the love of those creatures who are drawn to him in and with the power of his own love for himself.3Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: I left the altar rail and went back to the pew where the others were
You sell your happiness for peanuts! You sell your smile for pennies! I tell you, it's not worth it. The entire world is not worth your smile. Even if you are made the king or the emperor of the world, it's not worth giving away your smile.Sri Sri Ravi Shankar Ravi's Sayings By Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: You sell your happiness for peanuts! You sell your smile for pennies! I tell 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. There was a pin-drop silence.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: When God decides who should live or die, he is immoral. When you decide who
It's not fair that people wrote that all of my films had not done well. There were a few films like 'Nippu,' 'Devudu Chesina Manushulu' and 'Sarostaru' which were really bad. But, 'Veera' and 'Dharuvu' had done well. Strangely, people have added them to my 'flop list.'Ravi Teja Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Teja: It's not fair that people wrote that all of my films had not done well.
You'll never get to a person's soul until you understand their hurts.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: You'll never get to a person's soul until you understand their hurts.
Let us remember that every worldview-not just Christianity's-must give an explanation or an answer for evil and suffering ... this is not just a problem distinctive to Christianity. It will not do for the challenger just to raise the question. This problem of evil is one to which we all must offer an answer, regardless of the belief system to which we subscribe.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: Let us remember that every worldview-not just Christianity's-must give an explanation or an answer for
We are all born into different beliefs, and therefore, we should leave it that way" - so goes the tolerant "wisdom" of our time. Mahatma Gandhi, for example, strongly spoke out against the idea of conversion. When people make such statements, they forget or don't know that nobody is born a Christian. All Christians are such by virtue of conversion. To ask the Christian not to reach out to anyone else who is from another faith is to ask that Christian to deny his own faith. One of India's leading "saints," Sri Ramakrishna, is said to have been for a little while a Muslim, for a little while a Christian, and then finally, a Hindu again, because he came to the conclusion that they are all the same. If they are all the same, why did he revert to Hinduism? It is just not true that all religions are the same. Even Hinduism is not the same within itself. Thus, to deny the Christian the privilege of propagation is to propagate to him or her the fundamental beliefs of another religion. IfRavi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: We are all born into different beliefs, and therefore, we should leave it that way"
All religions are not the same. All religions do not point to God. All religions do not say that all religions are the same. At the heart of every religion is an uncompromising commitment to a particular way of defining who God is or is not and accordingly, of defining life's purpose.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: All religions are not the same. All religions do not point to God. All religions

The assurance of Heaven is never given to the person. And that's why at the core of the Christian faith is the grace of God. If there's one word I would grab from all of that, it's forgiveness - that you can be forgiven. I can be forgiven, and it is of the grace of God. But once you understand that, I think the ramifications are worldwide.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: The assurance of Heaven is never given to the person. And that's why at the

Look at it another way. A stack of five hundred sheets of paper is two to three inches high. How high would the stack be if it had 6 x 1023 sheets? That stack would reach from the earth to the sun, not once, but more than one million times.2 Yet, in about two gulps of water, God has packed that many molecules. The miracle of walking on water is small for Him who created it in the first place. The multiplication of bread was but a simple command for Him when the very earth was brought forth at His command. (C. S. Lewis commented that a slow miracle is no easier to perform than an instant one.) The skeptic, of course, will challenge such credulity that accepts wholesale such stories, not realizing that what they swallow in a glass of water is a miracle in and of itself!

Staring at life's cryptogram, we either see His name unmistakably resplendent or we see the confusion of religions with no single message, just garbled beliefs that plague our existence, each justified by the voice of culture. That may be the tragedy of the beguiling sentiment we call tolerance, which has become a euphemism for contradiction.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: Staring at life's cryptogram, we either see His name unmistakably resplendent or we see the
My dad died, I write. almost a year ago. Car accident. My hand is shaking; my eyes sting and fill. I add Not his fault before pushing the notebook and pen back across the table, wiping a hand across my cheeks.
As he reads, my impulse is to reach out, grab the notebook, run outside, dump it in the trash, bury it in the snow, throw it under the wheels of a passing car - something, something, so I can go back fifteen seconds when this part ofme was still shut away and private. Then I look at Ravi's face again, and the normally white white whites of his eyes are pink. This causes major disruption to my ability to control the flow of my own tears. I see myself when I look at him right now: he's reflecting my sadness, my broken heart, back to me.
He takes the pe, writes, and slides it over. You'd think it's something epic from the way it levels my heart. It isn't.
I'm really sorry, Jill.
Four little words.

Wonder is that possession of the mind that enchants the emotions while never surrendering reason.

There is no greater example in apologetics than the apostle Paul speaking at Mars Hill. The irony of the talk Paul gave is in the difference in reaction the Easterner has when reading Paul's address to that of a Westerner. The Easterner is thrilled at how the apostle wove the message starting from where the listeners were to bring them to where he was in his thinking. The average Westerner is quick to point out that few of his hearers responded. Such an attitude says volumes about why the church in the West has been so intellectually weak. To those in the West, the bigger the number of respondents, the more replicated the technique. The bigger the statistic, the greater the success. Westerners are enamored by size, largesse, number of hands raised, and so on. When the sun has set on these reports, we seem rather dismayed when statistics show the quality of the life of the believer is no different from that of the unbeliever.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: There is no greater example in apologetics than the apostle Paul speaking at Mars Hill.

While theoretically a person may block God out, logically there will be a breakdown because ultimately all enunciation implies a moral doctrine of some kind. And if that moral doctrine is not absolute then the definer himself becomes undefined. That's what we are living with - an undefined definer giving us definitions for our course, and we are being trapped in the quicksand of the absence of objective truth.Ravi Zacharias Ravi's Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: While theoretically a person may block God out, logically there will be a breakdown because
