Rich Mullins said it long ago…

It’s a cultural disability in America that we worship pleasure, leisure, and affluence. I think the church is doubly damned when they use Jesus as a vehicle for achieving all of that. Like, if you give a tithe, He’ll make you rich. Why? Are you hacking Him off or something? If you give a tithe, you get rid of ten percent of the root of all evil. You should be giving ninety percent. Cause God can handle money better than we can. Rich Mullins

It’s all that pretending to be perfect that breeds inauthenticity in the church.

“My salvation has very little to do with anything that I have done… Jesus will go to any lengths to draw us to himself.”

“We never understand what we’re praying, and God, in His mercy, does not answer our prayers according to our understanding, but according to His wisdom.”

“Love is a virtue and not a feeling. It is fed and fired by God- not by the favorable response of the beloved. Even when it doesn’t seem to make a dime’s worth of difference to the ones on whom it is lavished, it is still the most prized of all virtues because it is at the heart of the very character of God.”

“Save me from trendy religion that makes cheap clichés out of timeless truths.”

Rich Mullins 1955-1997
