1. "I have this final suggestion for any who doubt. Give yourself some time. Your doubt may be a temporary thing. Faith and doubt often come and go in my own life.

And remember this — even during those times when you don’t believe in God, God still believes in you and will not let you go."
Tony Campolo, "Losing Faith: Life’s Questions"

2. "Let us preach Christ, let us be faithful to proclaiming the Gospel, but let's leave judgment in the hands of God."

I believe that Christ is at work in the world through Christians. Trying to change the world that is into the world that ought to be, into what the Bible calls the Kingdom of God — a society of transformed people in a transformed social system — that's the Kingdom. We should be trying to create that Kingdom here on earth."
