Money can buy you a bed, but it can’t buy you a good night’s sleep. It can buy you a house, but it can’t buy you a home. It can buy you amusement, but it can’t buy you happiness. – Greg Laurie, Friday night in Raleigh, North Carolina

Greg Laurie, the plain-spoken California evangelist who opened a three-day crusade at the RBC Center on Friday night, told his listeners Jesus wasn’t looking for respect. He wasn’t even looking for admiration.
He was looking for followers.
“We can’t be neutral about Jesus,” said Laurie, pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, Calif. “This is an either-or proposition.”
