Pinnock: neutrality?

Thursday, October 16, 2014
    Yet at the same time many even among the leaders believed in him. But because of the Pharisees they would not confess their faith for fear they would be put out of the synagogue; for they loved praise from men more than praise from God.
    —John 12:42-43 (NIV)
    It is impossible to be neutral about Jesus Christ. We must either accept or reject his claims. Not to decide is to decide. He does not call us to a merely verbal confession or a merely intellectual commitment, but to an unreserved decision to build our lives on Christ as a foundation.
    ... Clark H. Pinnock (1937-2010), A Case for Faith, Bethany House, 1987, p. 90 (see the book)
    See also John 12:42-43; Matt. 7:21-27; 10:32; 28:17; Mark 3:35; Luke 12:8; John 1:11-13; 7:3-5; Rom. 10:10; 1 John 4:2
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are the cornerstone of my life.
