- “Looking back nearly two decades, I can see with clarity that the day I personally made a decision in the case for Christ was nothing less than the pivotal event of my entire life” (365).
- “In other words, if my conclusion in the case for Christ is correct, your future and eternity hinge on how you respond to Christ” (366).
Maybe decision theology doesn't matter. Maybe it's good that we make decisions about our faith. Maybe it's good that when my daughter tells me the '98 Civic's brakes aren't working correctly, that I have a look under the hood...or wherever those brake thingys are...and give 'em a fixin' up. Maybe it really doesn't matter who does the work...of brake fixing or of salvation. Maybe it's good to let man, in all his sinful failings, be given the responsibility of saving himself, while a passive Christ hangs on the cross waiting for man to decide.
