Trinity and Reality

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)

Let the saints be joyful in glory, let them sing aloud on their beds, let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two edged sword in their hand, to execute vengeance on the nations, and punishments on the peoples; to bind the kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron. Psalm 149:5-8
