„Все мы — дети надежды, задумывающиеся о будущей жизни, которая является нашей целью.“

„Atheism is partly the result of bad theology, an unpaid bill resulting from failures in depicting God.
It is not surprising that many have rejected God when there has been so little to attract them to him. Perhaps they would not reject as readily the God disclosed in Jesus Christ, who is an event of loving relationally and relates readily to the temporal world.“
Flame of Love: A Theology of the Holy Spirit


„Election has nothing to do with the eternal salvation of individuals but refers instead to God's way of saving nations. It was a major mistake of the Reformation to have decided to follow Augustine in this matter, taking election to refer to grace and salvation. It manages to make bad news out of good news. It casts a deep shadow over the character of God. At it worst, it can lead to awful consequences in terms of pride, arrogance, superiority, and intolerance as the ideology of election takes hold. It causes the church to become, not a sign of the unity of humanity in the love of God, but the sign of favorites in the midst of the enemies of God.“ A Wideness in God's Mercy: The Finality of Jesus Christ in a World of Religions

„Scripture offers the unique access to the story of redemption and then, in turn, funds tradition, reason and experience, as God's Word is remembered, experienced, and thought about.“ Tracking The Maze: Finding Our Way Through Modern Theology From An Evangelical Perspective

„One may be "outside" the church, but one can never be "outside" of God's love.“ A Wideness in God's Mercy: The Finality of Jesus Christ in a World of Religions

„There is no formula or doctrine of the church’s role in society. The church lives out its witness in concrete historical situations, waiting for God to lead. There is a role for thinking about what to do next, but this thinking should be always done in the context of waiting on God. Prayer is evidence of dependency on God. In prayer we envisage a new future, and we protest the world order as it is. We stand against darkness and invoke God’s light. Using weapons of the Spirit, we pull down strongholds and join the uprising against the present disorder. Prayer shows that we belong to a different order of reality which defies the powers of evil and anticipates the kingdoms of this world becoming the kingdom of Christ (Rev 11:15). History belongs to intercessors, because history belongs to God.70 Mission is“ Flame of Love: A Theology of the Holy Spirit

„It is not enough to know what is written; we also need to grasp the significance of the Word.“ Flame of Love: A Theology of the Holy Spirit

„More than churches full of people, God wants (and the world needs) people full of the Spirit. Let“ Flame of Love: A Theology of the Holy Spirit


„Theology always gets into trouble when its practitioners think they know what God is like apart from what revelation says God is like.“ Flame of Love: A Theology of the Holy Spirit

„We do not rightly understand the calling of Abraham unless we see in him the manifestation of God’s world-wide purpose of grace.“ Grace for All: The Arminian Dynamics of Salvation
