Managing Monday with Ravi Zacharias

Posted by on Aug 1, 2016 in Blog | 2 comments

I’m currently teaching a unit in apologetics at Vose, and naturally that brings me into a fair amount of contact with the thought of noted Christian apologist, Ravi Zacharias. This Monday and next, we will focus on some of his insights…

  • We have a right to believe whatever we want, but not everything we believe is right – Ravi Zacharias
  • Before the truth can set you free you need to recognize which lie is holding you hostage – Ravi Zacharias
  • I am absolutely convinced that meaninglessness does not come from being weary of pain; meaninglessness comes from being weary of pleasure – Ravi Zacharias
Nice chatting…

  1. Hi Dr Harris,
    First of all, THANK YOU VERY VERY MUCH for giving me a signed copy of Revisioning, Renewing, Rediscovering The Triune Center! I’ve just begun my sabbatical.. and had just now the opportunity and privilege of reading it. It’s EXCELLENT!!
    Appreciate your very kind gift.. and your distinguished labour of love in it!!

    Secondly, just to share a ‘Recent Thot from My Sabbatical Journal’, entitled “The Illusion of Truth and the Vanity of Falsehood” –

    “The cultural collective consciousness of fallen humanity has a disturbing propensity of gravitating towards the ILLUSION of what’s True, and the VANITY of what’s False.

    As such, it cannot meaningfully discern – beyond mere philosophical rhetoric and pious pontification – what is truly loving and unloving, what is truly wise and unwise, what is truly essential and non-essential.

    This is because it has fundamentally failed to grasp what is ultimately True; and what is fundamentally False.

    The illusion of Truth and the vanity of Falsehood, presumptuously echoed in our undiscerning cultural narrative, have resulted in the bondage of the will and the emptiness of the soul.

    Thus, in a world that is preoccupied with the notion of ‘Right and Wrong’, in the superficial dictates of political correctness, we must first return to the more fundamental issue of discerning between ‘Truth and Falsehood’.

    For indeed, Truth defines all else; while Falsehood corrupts all else.”

    • Thanks so much for this Edmund. Glad you enjoyed Revisioning.
      I think your comments are profound. If you confuse truth and falsehood everything else is unstable. Getting our first premises right is critical.
      Have a great Sabbatical.
