  1. Beneath the down-to-earth, aw-shucks demeanor was a very intelligent individual and a wonderful man-of-God. In his commentaries, McGee frequently blesses me with his pithy, straightforward, uncompromising comments.

  2. Love the quote.

    Heard another good one today, by a local Pastor, Marty Duren. Something like, “We are often so interested in vindicating our theology, rather than vindicating Christ’s supremacy.”

    I think that definitely speaks to motive.

  3. I would add the word “think” in there. You may “think” you have a better way. Ain’t know way “you” have a better way.
    Just a thought……………

  4. “think” is implicit in the statement; he was reaching out to unbeliever’s (obviously), and no one has a better way, it all ties in to proverbs 3:5. as a result, adding “think” in retrospect is not really neccessary, it is redundant……………….fact check it.

  5. Does anyone remember what J Vernon McGee said about the pace of modern society? Something about the interruption of the phone, the tyranny of the clock and something about appointments?
