Top 10 Quotes from the Wide Road

Top 10 Quotes from the Wide Road

Maybe it was a moment of inspiration, more likely delirium, as Cam and I were driving back from New York City. We were discussing some of the things people, including the two of us, say and how whose statements go against what the Word of God says. So below is our Top 10 list with scriptures that prove the statements are not quite correct or flat out wrong. Yes, there are more and maybe some worthy of Top 10 status, but this is our list:

  1. “I need to get myself right before I get right with God.”Matthew 6:33: “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
  2. “You can’t judge me only God can.”Matthew 7:5: “You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.
  3. “The Bible was written by men over 2000 years ago; How is it relevant today?”Proverbs 30:5: “Every word of God is flawless; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.”

    Hebrews 4:12: “For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.”

  4. “God wants you to be rich (Name it & Claim it).”Luke 18: 18-25 Verse 22: “When Jesus heard this, he said to him, ‘You still lack one thing. Sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.’
  5. “God wouldn’t want me to suffer.”Acts 5:41: “The apostles left the Sanhedrin, rejoicing because they had been counted worthy of suffering disgrace for the Name.”

    2 Timothy 1:8: “So do not be ashamed to testify about our Lord, or ashamed of me his prisoner. But join me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God.”

  6. Calling God “The Man Upstairs.”Psalm 99:9: “Exalt the Lord our God and worship at his holy mountain, for the Lord our God is holy.”
  7. “God won’t send ‘Good People’ to Hell.”John 3:36: “Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on him.

    John 14:6: “Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’”

  8. “Faith is a private matter.”Matthew 10:33: “But whoever disowns me before men, I will disown him before my Father in heaven.
  9. “But I am a good person.”Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
  10. “God can’t or won’t forgive me for what I have done.”1 John 1:9: “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”

May we run to the cross and stop saying things that are not scriptural!
