Amos 5:16-6:14
The Danger of Living a Fantasy Faith

“Following Jesus is not about you and me.  Being a Christian is not about us; it’s not about our self-esteem. It’s about our being sick of our sin and our desperations for forgiveness.  It is about seeing Christ as the priceless Savior from sin and death and hell, so that we willingly give up as much as it takes, even if it cots us our families, our marriages, and whatever else we cherish and possess.” 
John MacArthur, Hard to Believe

“You were created to be free.  If you are a follower of Jesus Christ, you’re also called to be free. Yet to experience this freedom, there must first be an uprising – a revolution of the soul.”
Erwin McManus, Stand Against the Wind

“What Satan put into the heads of our remote ancestors was the idea that they could ‘be like gods’ – could set up on their own as if they had created themselves – be their own masters – invest some sort of happiness for themselves outside of God, apart from God.  And out of that hopeless attempt has come nearly all that we call human history – money, poverty, ambition, war, prostitution, classes, empires, slavery – the long terrible story of man trying to find something other than God which will make him happy.” 
C. S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
