You have a factor that is absolutely infinite, and what does it matter as to what other factors may be. 'I will do as much as I can,' says one. Any fool can do that. He that believes in Christ does what he can not do, attempts the impossible and performs it.

Charles H. Spurgeon

Faith has the genius of transforming the barely possible into actuality.

Samuel Zwemer (18671952)

C.S. Lewis on Reasoning to Atheism - Supposing there was no intelligence behind the universe, no creative mind. In that case, nobody designed my brain for the purpose of thinking. It is merely that when the atoms inside my skull happen, for physical or chemical reasons, to arrange themselves in a certain way, this gives me, as a by-product, the sensation I call thought. But, if so, how can I trust my own thinking to be true? It's like upsetting a milk jug and hoping that the way it splashes itself will give you a map of London. But if I can't trust my own thinking, of course I can't trust the arguments leading to Atheism, and therefore have no reason to be an Atheist, or anything else. Unless I believe in God, I cannot believe in thought: so I can never use thought to disbelieve in God.

C.S. Lewis The Case for Christianity. p. 32

Christians are different from unbelievers in other ways than destiny. By no means sinless, Christians are observed to actually gather with other believers to worship God on Sundays, Hebrews 10.25.

John S. Waldrip

Christianity is essentially a social religion, to turn it into a solitary religion is indeed to destroy it.

John Wesley

There are many passages of Scripture that you will never understand until some trying experience shall interpret them to you!

Charles H. Spurgeon

Your condition is not only your calamity, but your fault.

Charles H. Spurgeon

There is no conversion without conviction.

Thomas Hooker (1586-1647)

Lukewarmness goes masked under the name of discretion; licentious wantonness in the abuse of the privileges of the gospel, goes veiled with the profession of the liberty of the gospel; and while they profess, they must not be servants to men, they serve their own distempered affections.

Thomas Hooker (1586-1647)

The preacher must not trim his doctrine to flatter the audience. His goal must not be to attract a crowd by pleasing them in their sin. He must preacher what is most needful for their eternal well-being.

Tom Nettles

You cannot taste the sweetness of any doctrine till you have remembered Christ's connection with it.

Charles H. Spurgeon

If I profess, with the loudest voice and clearest exposition, every portion of the truth of God except precisely that little point which the world and the devil are at the moment attacking, I am not confessing Christ, however boldly I may be confessing Christianity. Where the battle rages the loyalty of the soldier is proved; and to be steady on all the battle-field besides is mere flight and disgrace to him if he flinches at that one point.

Martin Luther

The sayings of Jesus recorded in the gospels demonstrate that Jesus was clearly a young-earth creationist.

Terry Mortenson

I became a Baptist through reading the New Testament - especially in the Greek.

C. H. Spurgeon

I must confess I never would have been saved, if I could have helped it.

C. H. Spurgeon

The Christian worldview sees and understands God the Creator and His creation (i.e., man and the world) primarily through the lens of God's special revelation, the Holy Scriptures, and secondarily through God's natural revelation in creation as interpreted by human reason and reconciled by and with Scripture, for the purpose of believing and behaving in accord with God's will and, thereby, glorifying God with one's mind and life, both now and in eternity.

Richard Mayhue

Men do not know how to man, Women do not know how to woman, Husbands do not know how to husband, Wives do not know how to wife, Fathers do not know how to dad, Mothers do not know how to mom, apart from the instruction of God's Word.

John S. Waldrip

I do not believe that we can preach the gospel if we do not preach the sovereignty of God in the dispensation of grace.

Charles H. Spurgeon

God is so very good that when His blessings are considered His children can rejoice and praise Him on their way to martyrdom.

John S. Waldrip

The call of God is not a call to God, but to His Son, Jesus Christ.

John S. Waldrip

God's Word is designed to have a twofold effect upon the Christian: a distressing and a comforting.

Arthur W. Pink (1886-1952)

Many have been the mischiefs that have arisen from that false and delusory notion of the witness of the Spirit,that is a kind of inward voice, suggestion, or revelation from God to man,that he is beloved of Him, and that his sins are pardoned - sometimes accompanied with, sometimes without a text of Scripture; and many have been the false and vain (though very high) affections that have arisen from hence. It is to be feared that multitudes of souls have been eternally undone by it.

Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758)

The strenuous character of service in the gospel is indicated by Paul's fondness for describing it in athletic or military language.

F. F. Bruce (1910-1990)

By this word grace, we are to understand God's free, sovereign, good pleasure, by whereby He acts in Christ towards His people.

John Bunyan

I am quite conscious that my speculations run quite beyond the bounds of true science.

Charles Darwin, 1857
