Josh Wheaton: I just keep thinking of that C.S. Lewis line, “Only a real risk can test the reality of a belief.”
Kara: So, you’re gonna risk our future over your yearbook quote?
Josh Wheaton: I could drop the class, run away, pretend like it never happened, which is what my girlfriend wants. I could sign the paper saying something I don’t believe. Or I commit academic suicide in front of a live audience by trying to prove that God exists.
Reverend Dave: And how may of them do you think would ever step foot in here, or any other church for matter?
Reverend Dave: So, your acceptance of this challenge, if you decide to accept it, may be the only meaningful exposure to God and Jesus they’ll ever have.

Reverend Dave: If you’re still undecided after that one, look at Luke 12:48.
Reverend Dave: Sure it can. You’re here because that still small voice inside you isn’t happy with the choices everyone else wants you to make. Personally, I think it’s the Holy Spirit talking to you. That’s how He interacts with us if we allow him to. All you have to do is decide whether or not you’re willing to listen. It’s not easy, but it’s simple.
Don’t be clever. Be content to tell the truth.
Mark: You prayed and believed your whole life. Never done anything wrong. And here you are. You’re the nicest person I know. I am the meanest. You have dementia. My life is perfect. Explain that to me!
Mina’s Mother: Sometimes the devil allows people to live a life free of trouble because he doesn’t want them turning to God. Their sin is like a jail cell, except it is all nice and comfy and there doesn’t seem to be any reason to leave. The door’s wide open. Till one day, time runs out, and the cell door slams shut, and suddenly it’s too late.
Josh Wheaton: How can you hate someone who doesn’t exist?
God is good all the time. And all the time, God is good.
