Christian Wisdom: Athanasius, an early pastor of Alexandria, Egypt, fervently opposed the teaching of Arius, who declared that Jesus Christ was not the eternal Son of God, but a subordinate being. Athanasius was summoned to appear before Emperor Theodosius, who declared to him, "Do you not realize that all the world is against you?" Athanasius quickly replied, "Then I am against the world."
Quote of the Week: "Cheap grace is the grace we bestow on ourselves. Cheap grace is the preaching of forgiveness without requiring repentance, baptism without church discipline, Communion without confession. Cheap grace is grace without discipleship, grace without the cross, grace without Jesus Christ, living and incarnate." Dietrich Bonhoeffer
