I’m sure most people reading this will know who Bill Johnson is but in case you don’t know, Bill is the senior pastor of Bethel church where I spent 4 years, including 3 years in their school of ministry.
He has massively shaped my life and as you read the quotes below you will see why!
Here are 19 of my favourite quotes of his regarding the topics of Faith and Theology.
Faith[Tweet “Our problem with faith is not the inability to hear His voice – it’s the willingness to hear others.”] [Tweet “Anytime there’s sweat in faith, it’s not faith.”] [Tweet “We don’t believe because we understand. We understand because we believe.”] [Tweet “Great faith doesn’t come out of great effort, but out of great surrender.”] [Tweet “The biggest enemy to prayer is praying for something you already have.”] [Tweet “Unbelief often masquerades as humility. It becomes a way of life when it is embraced as a virtue.”] [Tweet “Faith doesn’t deny a problems existence. It denies it a place of influence.”] [Tweet “What you know, might be preventing you from what you need to know!”]
Theology[Tweet “The Bible is not a book of lists that confine or restrict God.”] [Tweet “Much of today’s church relies more on a book the early church didn’t have, than the Spirit they did.”] [Tweet “Many Christians miss out on God encounters because they are satisfied with good theology.”] [Tweet “Bible study without Bible experience is pointless.”] [Tweet “Practical atheism is when you act the same way as an atheist does even when you believe in God.”] [Tweet “The mind is either at war with God or it is being renewed. There is no middle ground.”] [Tweet “God will never violate His Word, but He doesn’t mind violating our understanding of His Word.”] [Tweet “The bible was meant to be read by those in love. It’s sad when it’s not.”] [Tweet “You can’t be devoted to the word more than you are to the Spirit. Without the Spirit it’s dead.”] [Tweet “Religion idolizes concepts and avoids personal experience.”] [Tweet “Jesus did not say, ‘My sheep will know my book’.”]
