..."and a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the way of holiness; evil minded people shall not travel on it, but it shall be for those wayfarers who are traveling toward God. (Isaiah 35:8, adapted)

Deep Inside: E. Stanley Jones on Conversion

The conscious mind determines the actions,
the unconscious mind determines the reactions;
and the reactions are just as important
as the actions. Many Christians are Christians
in their actions--they don't lie, steal, commit
adultery, or get drunk; but they react badly to
what happens to them--they react in anger, bad
temper, self-pity, jealousy, and envy...
When the depths are held by the Holy Spirit,
then the reaction is Christian.

- E. Stanley Jones (1884-1973), "Conversion"
