Christian One-Liners

I got these in an email, and I thought they were really clever. Not only that, but they sure relate to bridging the Church and the GLBT community!

We were called to be witnesses, not lawyers or judges.


God Himself does not propose to judge a man until he is dead. So why should you?

Quit griping about your church; if it was perfect, you couldn’t belong.

People are funny; they want the front of the bus, the middle of the road, and the back of the church.

It is easier to preach ten sermons than it is to live one.

God grades on the cross, not the curve.

You can tell how big a person is by what it takes to discourage him.

Much love.
