Key Quotes From Greg Laurie

“I was on my own trajectory. My mother was married and divorced seven times. She was a raging alcoholic. And so I had to grow up really quickly as a young boy and be responsible for her.”

“I was literally looking for the meaning of life at a very early age.”

“I looked around at the Christians and I thought, well, I’m not one of them. Does that mean I’m against Jesus? I mean, I always believed Jesus was out there somewhere.”

“So I’m brand new in the faith—that weekend I actually went off to do drugs. No one told me what to do. No one gave me a Bible. No one explained it.”

“I came from a home where my mother never told me she loved me. She never hugged me. So to be in an environment [church] where people are loving each other, hugging each other actually was so foreign to me. I didn’t want to be in it. I was uncomfortable.”

“I didn’t know it, but I had literally walked into the middle of a spiritual awakening. And it wasn’t until later I realized, ‘Oh wow, that was an actual revival.’ In fact, it was the last great spiritual awakening in America, the Jesus Movement…it was not until some time later that I realized how significant that particular time was.”
