    No longer is the inner heart work of God’s redeeming and saving love needed. All that is needed is to create a glorious outer facade. To, in short, be a spectacular participant in the society of the spectacle.
    Note: "All that is needed is to create a glorious facade." - my how the virtual world has enabled this!
  • Timmy shared from The Knowledge of the Holy by A.W. Tozer
    Probably the hardest thought of all for our natural egotism to entertain is that God does not need our help. We commonly represent Him as a busy, eager, somewhat frustrated Father hurrying about seeking help to carry out His benevolent plan to bring peace and salvation to the world, but, as said the Lady Julian, "I saw truly that God doeth all-thing, be it never so little." The God who worketh all things surely needs no help and no helpers.
    Note: God does not need our help...

    Were all human beings suddenly to become blind, still the sun would shine by day and the stars by night, for these owe nothing to the millions who benefit from their light. So, were every man on earth to become atheist, it could not affect God in any way. He is what He is in Himself without regard to any other. To believe in Him adds nothing to His perfections; to doubt Him takes nothing away.
    Note: God is not who He is b/c we believe Him to be so. He is who He is regardless of our acknowledgement.

    I believe there is scarcely an error in doctrine or a failure in applying Christian ethics that cannot be traced finally to imperfect and ignoble thoughts about God.
    Note: I believe Tozer is dead on with this assertion.
  • Timmy shared from The Attributes of God by Arthur W. Pink
    There was no heaven, where His glory is now particularly manifested. There was no earth to engage His attention. There were no angels to hymn His praises; no universe to be upheld by the word of His power. There was nothing, no one, but God; and that, not for a day, a year, or an age, but “from everlasting.” During eternity past, God was alone: self-contained, self-sufficient, self-satisfied; in need of nothing.
    Note: From eternity past, God has not lacked anything. He is always sufficiently satisfied in His being God. Great reminder on why this can only (and must necessarily) be true for God and no one else.
