Key Quotes from Dr. Sean McDowell
“We have to be very clear on what Scripture teaches…Knowing what Scripture teaches and why it teaches it gives us some conviction to resist some of the narratives being pushed so fervently and non-stop in television, social media, Netflix, our educational system.”
“This is a messy conversation. There are not always easy answers.”
“We’re committed to Scripture, but we are committed to loving people sacrificially.”
