“You know what I love about atheists, how much they believe in God. You know what breaks my heart about atheists, what they believe about God; you know what breaks my heart even more than that, what they believe about God, it was taught to them by the church.”

“The more you put faith in sovereign control the more you compromise God’s goodness.”

“Many years ago I decided if there was ever anything I was to be uncertain about regarding the nature of God, it wouldn’t be about always good love.”

“To understand how God’s sovereignty works is to understand what Jesus is like.

“Jesus never revealed God’s sovereignty as controlling.”

“The ideology, the very idea that God is in control, was birthed by Satan in the Garden of Eden.”

“Sovereign control is the only narrative the devil knows, it’s his theology.”

“I’m not saying we’re not in a battle, buts it’s not the one you think guys, it’s the battle for His goodness, it’s the battle to, by faith, believe that love is sovereign in all things.”
