The Centrality of Christ

“Given that Christ and His cross are central to God, they must be central to the church of God as well. Given that God pivots everything on the person and work of Christ, the church of God should do the same in its preaching, thinking, worship, and practice. To put it bluntly: if we think we have something better to offer, then we think we know something God doesn’t know. Which… dude. Seriously. Whoa. Think about that.”

~ Dan Phillips, The World-Tilting Gospel (Chapter 7, p. 139)

  1. Amen, amen. Everything revolves around Christ — even though modern scholars now count dates according to the “Common Era,” (whatever that is), they are still counting from the birth of Christ no matter what they call it.

  2. Excellent quote, thanks for sharing. Johnson really has a point with this. I will need to add this to my list of books to read.
