"True biblical conviction is always lived out. Conviction that is not lived, that does not rule my everyday life, is not really conviction. if my heart knows, understands, acknowledges and has submitted to what is right, it will difinitely show in the decision I make daily."
"A person who does not have biblical convictions does not have an internal restraint system. This person will do right when under a watchful eye, or when under external pressure. However, when these external motivators are removed, this person will behave very differently."
Paul David Tripp
