Here are some more of my favorite quotes from Ralph Smith’s Trinity and Reality.
“In the Bible, for all practical purposes, the notion of Christian life apart from membership in a local church never occurs. To reject baptism, the Lord’s Supper, and weekly worship is to reject the body of Christ, the bride He loves.” (p. 166)
“For most nations in the world today, the pressing need is to plant churches and train families to follow God. It is not until the vast majority of the families in a nation have been baptized and taught to obey Christ that the political life fo the country can be changed sufficiently for godly government to thrive.” (p. 178)
