Good morning friends,

Here is a random quote (of over 1300) from Nuggets:

A given culture’s depravity isn’t measured simply by the percentage of Christians in that culture. …Corinth remained a sewer not because there weren’t enough Christians there, but because the Christians there weren’t Christian enough. – RC Sproul JR

Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? My brothers, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water. Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show it by his good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom. But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. James 3:11-14

Blessings to you all
