“I just don’t see what is wrong with missing a church service. Jesus cares about what I care about and He wants me to have fun and enjoy myself. If this conflicts with a church service, so what? Church will be there next week. This won’t.”
Mark 9: 12, “And he answered and told them, Elias verily cometh first, and restoreth all things; and how it is written of the Son of man, that he must suffer many things, and be set at nought.”

John 14: 15, “If ye love me, keep my commandments.”
“God is love. He doesn’t care so much about what we do as how much we love.”
Matthew 20: 26-28, “But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister; And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant: Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.”
“Servanthood? I’m not serving anybody who doesn’t do for me first!”
Luke 16: 13, “No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
“I’m getting all that I can.”
Matthew 4: 10, “Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.”
“I’ll die without my cell phone!”
Mark 8: 38, “Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.”
“Why are you getting so bent out of shape? It’s only a movie. I can ignore the language.”
Matthew 7; 21, “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.”
“You have so much. All you lack is Jesus. All it takes is a moment to pray and ask Him into your heart. Won’t you do it so that your life may be complete?”
Matthew 10: 38, “And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.”
“We want to be free to do it our way. The old-fashioned ways were so…restrictive. It’s different today. The clothes are different. The music is different. We’re different, too. We’re still Christians. Just different Christians.”
Matthew 16: 24, “Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.”
“Immodest? Come on, mom, get over it. If a guy looks at me and lusts after me, it is his fault for not controlling himself.”

“The Bible is meant to make us free.  Jesus cares about our hearts much more than He cares about what we do. We can enjoy life and still be on our way to heaven.”

“Christian liberty allows me to do what I want and still be saved. Jesus understands.”
