Perryisms

Here are some lines from Perry’s message today that caught my attention:

  • “I want us to get comfortable with things being uncomfortable.”
  • “We have such a desire to be comfortable that we ignore the world around us.”
  • “There are family and friends that would go to hell if they died today…and that doesn’t bother you.”
  • “God is love, but God is also wrath.”
  • “Is it God’s fault that we experience his wrath or is it our fault?”
  • “God’s love is powerful, but God’s wrath is also powerful.”
  • “It’s not this church’s job to save the environment. It’s our job to reach people for Jesus.”
  • “I’ve never met an atheist that I didn’t like, but I’ve met people that call themselves Christians that get on my last flippin’ nerve.”
  • “God didn’t call us to yell at people.”
  • “When you love Jesus and begin to pursue him with all your heart, you’re going to be persecuted.”
  • “Church isn’t supposed to be our hobby. Jesus is supposed to be our passion.”
  • “It’s time to piss mom off.”
  • “The church wasn’t created to be a museum for saints but a hospital for sinners.”
  • “We’re too obsessed with icons and not living a sacrificial life with Jesus.”
  • She was singing, “Hide it under a bush? Hell no!”
