Sermon Notes

Mark 7:13

Martin Luther:

“Here is what the Bible says. My conscience is held captive by the Word of God. I must submit to Scripture, not to man-made traditions.”

Thomas Merton:

“The devil makes disciples by preaching against sin. He convinces them that the great evil of sin, includes a crisis of guilt by which ‘God is satisfied,’ and after that he lets them spend the rest of their lives meditating on the intense sinfulness and evident reprobation of other men.”


Mark 7:15-16

Tim Keller writes:

“Okay, ancients found the world a scary place because they didn’t understand the way nature worked, and so they created myths to help them explain the world they wanted to feel more in control of their destinies they conjured up moral absolutes and wrathful deities that had to be appeased. When anything went wrong, it had to be that the gods were unhappy. Therefore, ancient people were constantly ridden with shame and guilt.”

John Piper:

“The glory of God is not honored. The holiness of God is not reverenced. The greatness of God is not admired. The power of God is not praised. The truth of God is not sought. The wisdom of God is not esteemed. The beauty of God is not treasured. The goodness of God is not savored. The faithfulness of God is not trusted. The promises of God are not relied upon. The commandments of God are not obeyed. The justice of God is not respected. The wrath of God is not feared. The grace of God is not cherished. The presence of God is not prized. The person of God is not loved.


Mark 7:17-19

William Shakespeare:

“Canst thou not minister to a mind diseased, Pluck from the memory a rooted sorrow, raze out the written troubles of the brain, and with some sweet oblivious antidote cleanse the stuffed bosom of that perilous stuff which weighs upon her heart.”

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn:

“The line between good and evil passes not through the states, nor between classes, nor between political parties either—but right through every human heart—and through all human hearts.”

Lord David Cecil:

“The jargon of the philosophy of progress taught us to think that the save and primitive state of man is behind us. But barbarism is not behind us, it is within us.”

David Platt:

“Our greatest need is not to try harder. Our greatest need is a new heart.”


2 Corinthians 5:21

James Proctor:

“Cast your deadly ‘doing’ down—Down at Jesus’ feet. Stand in Him, in Him alone, Glorious complete.”
