In God we Trust! Really?

Waited around for what seemed like an age last night to hear Pete Wilson talk at Radicalis. (The bonus was that I listened to Rick Warren whilst waiting). Pete blasted it. Here are a few quick quotes from his talk.

  • Its not the Cross that is offensive its the fact that the people who follow the Cross look nothing like the man who hung on it that's offensive
  • There is a God and it is NOT me. You are not in control He is. In what area of your life do you need to say this is not mine.
  • There's a POWER that comes when we SURRENDER.
  • Satan likes to tell us God can't be trusted.
  • God is powerfully present even when we think He is apparently absent.
  • Often my prayer life isn't about me getting to know God more, but it's getting more of what I think He will give me.
  • Our greatest temptation is to chase after what is deceptively good… even ministry.
  • You're going to be tempted to ditch your God given values in pursuit of your God given dreams.
  • Our dreams, visions, your ministry etc … will make a lousy "god".
  • Never doubt in the dark, what God has already told you in the light.
  • Are you worshiping your dream, ministry, or vision over your relationship with God?
  • If you allow anything to define your worth other than Christ it will grind you down.
  • Are you putting your faith in God's IDENTITY or in God's ACTIVITY?
  • Sometimes we think of God as a cosmic vending machine.
  • God’s message to you: I am with you, will you choose to be with me?
Honestly is you haven't read his book Plan B get it NOW!
