Tim Keller On the Gospel and Fanaticism and Wrath

Last night while I was reading The Reasons For God by Tim Keller, I came across this quote and had to share it with you all.

What if, however, the essence of Christianity is salvation by grace, salvation not because of what we do but because of what Christ has done for us? Belief that you are accepted by God by sheer grace is profoundly humbling. The people who are fanatics, then, are so not because they are too committed to the gospel but because they are not committed to it enough. (pg. 57)

And how about this one as well

God’s wrath flows from his love and delight in his creation (pg.73)

Chew on those for a bit.
