Key Quotes from Glenn Packiam

“We cross a line when we start to believe that God has a vested interest in the material prosperity of one nation over another or of one party over another. Any time we claim God is on our side, we start to make a dangerous conflation that is a form of idolatry.”

“Labels tend to lump people and I don’t want, as a pastor, to say, ‘Oh there’s my far right crowd. There’s my left crowd.’…I want to remember that people are complex.”

“When we don’t recognize that the church is a Kingdom community, we think the church is just a collection of individuals who are saved, who are trying to pass the time on a Sunday from now until they die.”
