Favorite D.A. Carson Quotes from THINK|11

This weekend College Park Church hosted THINK|11, our annual excursion into the depths of God's glory as expressed in theology. Our aim is to help our people think deeply so that we can live correctly.

D.A. Carson took up the subject of the atonement, and here are a few of my favorite quotations:

  • "The way you lose the gospel is not by denying it, but by assuming it."
  • "The wilderness was not just about testing; it was also a season of God's courtship and preparation for his people."
  • "Students will remember little of what we teach them and nearly everything that we are passionate about."
  • "In the N.T., faith is validated in part by faith's object."
  • "Don't confuse the gospel with the entailments of the gospel."
  • "God is both wrathful and loving at the same time."
  • "Sin is not just the violation of God's law; it is a violation of God himself"
The entire conference is available online or you can interact at our THINK blog.
