“There’s a principle running through all of this: the closer we get to the heart of our faith, the more we expect unity in our understanding of the faith—in sound biblical doctrine. The early church put it this way: in essentials, unity; in nonessentials, diversity; in all things, charity.” (Page 11)
“When confessing Christians resist the idea of God’s sovereignty in creation or salvation, they are really playing with pious paganism.” (Page 12)
“But in practice, every church decides where it requires complete agreement, where it permits limited disagreement, and where it allows complete liberty.” (Pages 10–11)
“Sound doctrine is a central means by which Christians grow in holiness, and holiness is the goal of sound doctrine.” (Page 25)
“A healthy church is marked by expository preaching and by theology that’s biblical.” (Page 13)
