Show Notes
Who said it…

  • “I have had more trouble with myself than with any other man I have ever met.” -Dwight Lyman Moody
  • “Out of 100 men, one will read The Bible and the other ninety-nine will read the Christian.” -Dwight Lyman Moody
  • “If you think you have a problem, you probably do.” -Grace Slick of the Jefferson Airplane/Jefferson Starship
  • “It’s like playing Game Boy in the middle of the Grand Canyon.” –“See the Glory” by Steven Curtis Chapman
  • “I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him [that is, Christ]: ‘I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept His claim to be God.’ That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic–on a level with the man who says he is a poached egg–or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God: or else a madman or something worse…. You can shut Him up for a fool, you can spit at Him and kill Him as a demon; or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come up with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.” -C.S. Lewis in Mere Christianity

  2. Another that speaks more directly to Steven’s deliverance from alcoholism through his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ

Final Note: In or outside “Rust Never Sleeps” Steven Mitchell has poetry available for publication and he loves to give poetry readings that explore the bottom as in his poem, “Flesh Bucket” as well as poetry that revels and leaps for joy in our journey in right-living and seeks to make a difference in the lives of others.  To learn more about Steven’s work, email us at rmitpodcast@gmail.com and we will forward your requests to Steven.  Thank you!
