A quick set of notes a la tweets fromthe just (like 5 minutes ago) event tonight:

@RaviZacharias | @DennisPrager

 

“We here because we believe in truth & we know the culture is in crisis…”
– Pastor Randy Pope @perimeteratl to sold-out crowd #RaviPrager

“This is greatest gig I’ve done in my life, but I feel like singing ‘One of these things is not like the other…'”

“We come from a lot of different places but we are of a common heart…”

“Individually we can’t do a whole lot, but collectively we are the body & we make things happen…”

  • Moral Soil: Cut-flower ethics (wither & die in 1-2 generations)
  • When you do away with absolutes… then right & wrong is defined as being politically correct.
  • Our belief in God is gradually being eroded & our belief in values is being eroded at the same time…
  • If you ask the average person what is the one institution they distrust the most, it would probably be the political institution #RaviPrager
  • There are 3 kinds of cultures: Theonomous culture, Heteronomous culture, Autonomous culture
  • A theonomous culture is when God’s law is written on the heart of humanity & we live by natural law…
  • @PablodeFleurs
    Is there absolute #truth, is there a commander, an author or am I my own commander? #Metrics #GoodAndEvil #RaviPrager
  • When truth is placed into a moral soil, it will sprout & bring forth the right kind of fruit.
  • Foxworthy stuns crowd with serious question: what are biggest lies in our culture today?
  • A heteronomous culture is when a few people dictate beliefs from the top & everyone must live by them…
  • An autonomous culture is when everyone does their own thing & there is no sense of absolutes…
  • We can talk because our goal is communion with God. But how do you talk to someone whose goal is purely material & sensual?
  • When truth is placed into a moral soil, it will sprout & bring forth the right kind of fruit.
  • Men need other men to be better – even those opposed to us can sharpen us.
  • God’s name in vain? – Torah says Do not #carry God’s name in vain.
    #GodBlessPlannedParenthood? #RaviPrager
  • One of the biggest lies our culture tells us is that pleasure is the way of ultimate fulfillment.
  • The real poisonous lie is not to think you won’t be caught, but to think you can violate the sacred boundaries that God has set.
  • The 10 Commandments can be summarized in 1 word, #Sacred. God, Life, Marriage, etc. are all sacred. #RaviPrager
  •  Are you gonna’ be #Jonah & run away? Or will you face God’s holy fire and be tempered into trial shaped bits of clay? #RaviPrager #Trials
  • Pleasure unbounded by sacredness will leave you emptier than before.
  • The 10 Commandments can be summed up in 1 word: sacred.
  • What is means to be human is to be created in the image of God
  • People are eager to listen if you will present the truth to them with identification, translation, persuasion, justification.
  • One must articulate profound issues with relevance & courtesy… express the truth undergirded by courtesy & grace.
  • We are living in dark days, but I see a light shining & I have hope for the future.
  • If truth is not undergirded by love, it makes the possessor of that truth obnoxious & the truth repulsive.
  • Truth is that which describes reality as it actually is; it must have correspondence & coherence.
  • Truth is that which describes reality as it actually is; it must have correspondence & coherence.
  • “Pilate is the greatest example of modern times. He asked, ‘What is truth?’ & then he refused to wait for the answer.”
