Notable and Quotable

Posted by Kendall Harmon

I am wary of experts who are quick to offer advice. I have been warned that the devil often appears as an angel of light. I also know that the way of Jesus is under perpetual attack but that the attack rarely looks or feels like an attack. There is a good deal of slieght of hand involved. As Amos Wilder wisely comments, "The Spirit is not to be quenched, yet the spirits should be resisted."

--Eugene Peterson, The Jesus Way (Eerdmans, 2007), p.272
