Due to The Color of Your Skin

“We must recognize that to live in a world, in a society,
in which you feel that your life is constantly under threat
because of the color of your skin is, also, a form of violence.
It is a daily, ambient, gnawing violence.”

Sacred Boundaries

#ThankYouRavi
“Pleasure without God, without the sacred boundaries, will actually leave you emptier than before; and this is biblical truth, this is experiential truth. The loneliest people in the world are amongst the wealthiest and most famous who found no boundaries within which to live. That is a fact I’ve seen again and again.”

Founder & Chairman of the Board of Ravi Zacharias International Ministries

The Identity We Will Give Ourselves & The Life That We Inevitably Live

“It is the identity that we ascribe to God out of doubt or faith in His Scriptures
that will determine the identity we will give ourselves and ultimately the life that we inevitably live.
If He is the Creator, then we are created. If He is Master, then we are servants.
If He is love, then we are loved. If He is omnipotent, then we are not as powerful as we think.
If He is omniscient, then there is nowhere to hide. If He cannot lie, then His promises are all true.
It is faith in the truths of God’s character that has the power to completely revolutionize
how our lives are lived out.”
