"We should remember that people can go to Heaven without knowing much of
the Word of God, but they cannot go to Heaven without knowing Jesus Christ
as Savior."
~Lee Roberson

"God is the God of the impossible, as well as the God of the possible."
~Lester Roloff

"We must learn what God is to us, not by our own thoughts, but by what He
has revealed Himself to be, and that is, 'The God of all grace.' The moment I
understand that I am a sinful man, and yet that it was because the Lord knew
the full extent of my sin, and what its hatefulness was, that He came to me,
I understand what grace is. Faith makes me see that God is greater than my
sin, and not that my sin is greater than God. The Lord that I have known as
laying down His life for me, is the same Lord I have to do with everyday of
my life, and all His dealings with me are on the same principles of grace. The
great secret of growth is, the looking up to the Lord as gracious. How precious,
how strengthening it is to know that Jesus is at this moment feeling and
exercising the same love towards me as when He died on the cross for me.
This is a truth that should be used by us in the most common everyday
circumstances of life." ~
John Nelson Darby

"What we have in Christ Jesus--Redemption through His blood is the beginning
and foundation of everything."
~ CH Mackintosh

"The Christian life is not slightly better, but completely different." ~Clarence

"If sound doctrine is given up, the real Gospel of redemption by the blood of
the Son of God is denied,
worldliness follows." ~ A.C. Gaebelein

"Neither when we have chosen our way can we keep company with those
who go the other way.  There
must come with the decision for truth a
corresponding protest against error.
" ~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon

"There can be no united Christian church except it be founded upon a solid
~ Erling C. Olsen

In a fallen world like ours unity is no treasure to be purchased at the price
of compromise. Loyalty to God, faithfulness to truth and the preservation of
a good conscience are jewels more precious than gold of Ophir or diamonds
from the mine. For these jewels men have suffered the loss of property,
imprisonment and even death; for them, even in recent times, behind the
various curtains, followers of Christ have paid the last full measure of devotion
and quietly died, unknown to and unsung by the great world, but known to
God and dear to His Father's heart. In the day that shall declare the secrets
of all souls these shall come forth to receive the deeds done in the body. S
urely such as these are wiser philosophers than the religious camp followers
of meaningless unity who have not the courage to stand against current vogues
and who bleat for brotherhood because it happens to be for the time popular...
When confused sheep start over a cliff the individual sheep can save himself
only by separating from the flock. Perfect unity at such a time can only mean
total destruction for all. The wise sheep to save his own hide disaffiliates.
Power lies in the union of things similar and the division of things dissimilar.
Maybe what we need in religious circles today is
not more union but some
wise and courageous division
." ~ A.W. Tozer

"Dr. Bonar once said that he could tell when a Christian was growing. In
proportion to his growth in grace he would elevate his Master, talk less of what
he himself was doing, and become smaller and smaller in his own esteem, until,
like the morning star, he faded away before the rising sun." ~
D.L. Moody

"Be assured that God does more in us than we for Him; and that what we do is
only for Him in proportion as it is He Himself who works it in us." ~
JN Darby

"There is no failure in God's will, and no success outside of God's will."
~George Washington Truett

"Whoever reads the New Testament seriously, or gives thought to the impact
which the apostles made upon their generation, must acknowledge that one
outstanding historic event alone spurred that small band of 11 ordinary men
to an amazing task of evangelization in their generation. Defying every
obstacle, loss of home, persecution, even death itself, they evidenced the
supreme relevance in their ministry of the resurrection of Jesus Christ."
~Erling C. Olsen

"God is not looking for brilliant men, is not depending upon eloquent men, is
not shut up to the use of talented men in sending His Gospel out in the world.
God is looking for broken men, for men who have judged themselves in the
light of the Cross of Christ. When He wants anything done, He takes up men
who have come to an end of themselves, and whose trust and confidence is
not in themselves but in God." ~
H.A. Ironside

"There are some promises in the Bible which I have never yet used; but I am
well assured that there will come times of trial and trouble when I shall find
that poor despised promise, which I thought was never meant for me,
will be the only one on which I can float. I know that the time is coming
when every believer shall know the worth of every promise in the covenant."
~ C.H. Spurgeon

"Faith does the impossible because it brings God to undertake for us, and
nothing is impossible with God." ~
E.M. Bounds

"God is never surprised." ~Ralph Sexton Sr.

"Someday, when in the presence of our Savior, we will thank Him for every
burden, every trial, and every heartache."
~J. Vernon McGee

The person of Christ is the object of faith. It is Christ in the promises that
faith deals with. The promise is but the shell, Christ is the kernel; the promise
is but the casket, Christ is the jewel in it; the promise is but the field, Christ is
the treasure that is hid in that field; the promise is a ring of gold, Christ is the
pearl in that ring; and upon this sparkling, shining pearl, faith delights most to
look Faith hath two hands, and with both she lays earnest and fast hold on
King Jesus. Christ's beauty and glory is very taking and drawing; faith cannot
see it, but it will lay hold on it. Christ is the principle object about which faith
is exercised, for the obtaining of righteousness and everlasting happiness."
Thomas Brookes

"The great guardian principle of all conduct in the church of God is personal
responsibility to the Lord." ~
JN Darby

"Today, when people say they cannot believe, it is not a mental problem; it is
a matter of the will of the heart-- they do not want to believe. Some say they
have certain 'mental reservations,' mental hurdles which they cannot get over.
My friend, your mind is not big enough to take even one little hurdle. The
problem is never in the mind but in the will. There is sin in the life, and
a man does not want to turn to God; he does not want to believe Him."
~J. Vernon McGee

"When the Word is stored in the heart, the individual finds it a wonderful
power in preserving him from outbreaking sin."
~ E.C. Olsen

"Every one ought to study the Bible with two ends in view: his own growth
in knowledge and grace, and passing it on to others. We ought to have four
ears,-- two for ourselves, and two for other people. My Bible is worth a good
deal to me because I have so many passages marked that, if I am called upon
to speak at any time, I am ready. We ought to be prepared to pass around
heavenly thoughts and truths, just as we do the coin of the realm."
D.L. Moody

"No power of earth, or hell, men or devils, can possibly stand against the word
of God; and hence it is the very height of folly and wild madness for any one
to set up his thoughts or reasonings in opposition to the plain statements of
Holy Scripture; and, on the other hand, it is the beginning and end of all true
wisdom to submit in all things to the absolute authority of that Word which is
settled forever in Heaven."
~ CH Mackintosh

"The scriptures are the only external guide in matters of religion; they are the
way-posts we should look up unto, and take our direction from, and should
steer our course accordingly: To the law and to the testimony: if men speak
not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them (Isa. 8:20)"
~John Gill

"No Scripture is exhausted by a single explanation. The flowers of God's
garden bloom not only double, but sevenfold; they are continually pouring
forth fresh fragrance."
~ C.H. Spurgeon

"It is a good deal better to have life in Christ and God than any where else. I
would rather have my life hid with Christ in God than be in Eden as Adam
was. Adam might have remained in Paradise for 16,000 years, and then fallen,
but if ours is hid in Christ, how safe!" ~
D.L. Moody

"A blameless life, a brilliant reputation, will not do. No, nor a Christian training
either. "Ye must be born again." There must be a positive, actual, bona fide
passage from death unto life...."
~ CH Mackintosh

"We are not saved by feelings of sorrow over Jesus' death. We are saved when
the Word of God 'pierces' our hearts (Hebrews 4:12), when we are convicted
of our sins and trust Christ by faith."
~R. L. Hymers, Jr.

"It is better to think of what God is than of what we are. This looking at
ourselves, at the bottom is really pride, a want of the thorough consciousness
that we are good for nothing. Till we see this we never look quite away from
self to God. In looking to Christ, it is our privilege to forget ourselves. True
humility does not so much consist in thinking badly of ourselves, as in not
thinking of ourselves at all. I am too bad to be worth thinking about. What I
want is to forget myself and look to God, who is indeed worth all my thoughts.
Is there need of being humbled about ourselves? We may be quite sure that
will do it."
~J.N. Darby

"We serve God because of, not in order to." ~Clarence Sexton

"Take care you are not imposed upon, under the notion and pretense of an
apostolical tradition; unwritten traditions are not the rule, only the word of
God is the rule of our faith and practice."
~John Gill

"How frightful a thing it is for the preacher when he becomes accustomed to
his work, when his sense of wonder departs, when he gets used to the unusual,
when he loses his solemn fear in the presence of the High and Holy One;
when, to put it bluntly, he gets a little bored with God and heavenly things."
A.W Tozer

"If there is no deep yearning for a life that is well pleasing to Him, if there is no
stimulating desire to know Him and His Word, church membership is just like
a young man falling in love with a furnished apartment and marrying an electric
stove, a refrigerator, a vacuum cleaner, a garbage disposal, and a wet mop!
That is just about all it amounts to. Let's stop playing church today and start
loving Christ and living for Him!" ~
J. Vernon McGee

"While the literary value of the Bible cannot be minimized, the Book was
given not to be admired but to be received as the Word of God; that we might
come to know Him of whom the Scriptures witness."
~ Erling C. Olsen

"We have the Bible in our hands; but how little we know of its teaching!
And how little are we governed by it! We go on, from week to week, year to
year, with things which have no foundation whatever in its pages-- yea, with
things utterly opposed to its teaching; and, all the while, we boast of having
the Scriptures, just like the Jews of old, who made their boast of having the
oracles of God, while those very oracles condemned themselves and their
ways, and left them without a single plea."
~ CH Mackintosh

"The Word of God is a lamp by night, a light by day, and a delight at all
~ C.H. Spurgeon

"Let the Word be preached, the truth taught, and error will be uncovered and
souls delivered."
~ A.C. Gaebelein

"Probably the greatest need in the Church today is a body of men who are
absolutely devoted, every selfish purpose and plan given up, to the one great
end of magnifying the Lord Jesus Christ in the midst of the nation."
~Wilbur M. Smith

"There never has been a culture since this world began in which a New
Testament Christian could feel at home."
~Vance Havner

"There is no kind of experience in which a Christian has a right to refuse to
praise God, for 'all things work together for good to them that love God.'"
~A. C. Dixon

"The Lord is seldom early, but never late." ~John K. Hutcheson, Sr.

"As a Christian, my business is not to clean up this world; my business is
something infinitely beyond that. I do not believe in reformation: I believe in
regeneration by the Holy Spirit; not in changing lives, but in an imparting of a
new life which is in Christ."
~ Erling C. Olsen

"If it be the duty of all men to believe the Gospel . . . then it be the duty of
those who are entrusted with the Gospel to endeavor to make it known among
all nations."
~William Carey

"According to the Scriptures, salvation is never conditioned on human
faithfulness, or on the promise of human faithfulness. There is no payment
required, past, present, or future. God saves unmeriting sinners in unrelated,
unrecompensed, unconditioned, sovereign grace. Good works should follow;
but with no thought of compensation. Christians are "created in Christ Jesus
for good works" (Eph 2:10); they are to be a "special people, zealous for good
works" (Titus 2:14); and "those who have believed in God should be careful to
maintain good works" (Titus 3:8). Thus, and only thus, are "good works"
related to the gracious salvation from God through Christ Jesus. Grace is out
of question when recompense is in question." ~
Lewis Sperry Chafer

"To believe God's testimony is the first of duties, and Christ is the object of
that testimony. So, when the trembling jailer at Philippi fell down before Paul
and Silas he said, 'Sirs, what must I do to be saved?' The answer was,
'Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.'
The way is simple, the warrant sure, the salvation rich and full. The call of
God is to believe on His Son, the Lord Jesus, the result is salvation for all that
believe, the house no less than its head. Hence it is His commandment that we
should believe on the name of His Son Jesus Christ: loving one another
follows, as He gave us commandment. But it is in vain to urge love, holiness,
or anything else till we believe on Him."
~ William Kelly

"If the heart be delighting in the Christ which Scripture unfolds, it will,
assuredly, shrink from the false Christs which Satan would introduce. If
we are feeding upon God's reality, we shall unhesitatingly reject Satan's
counterfeit. This is the best possible way in which to escape the entanglements
of error, in every shape and character. "The sheep hear His voice, and . . .
follow him: for they know His voice. And a stranger will they not follow, but
will flee from him; for they know not the voice of strangers" (John 10: 4,5)
It is not, by any means, needful to be acquainted with the voice of a
stranger, in order to turn away from it; all we require is to know the
'voice of the good Shepherd.'
This will secure us against the ensnaring
influence of every strange sound."
~C.H. Mackintosh

"False teachers have some true doctrine. There is not a cult that I know of
which does not have some truth in it. That is the one thing that makes them
ten thousand times more dangerous than if they were 100 percent in error.
These teachers generally believe some things that are true. Our Lord said,
'Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly
they are ravening wolves.'" (Matthew 7:15). ~
J. Vernon McGee

Heresy is not so much rejecting as selecting. The heretic simply selects the
parts of the Scripture he wants to emphasize and lets the rest go. This is
shown by the etymology of the word heresy and by the practice of the heretic.
"Beware," an editorial scribe of the fourteenth century warned his readers in
the preface to a book. "Beware thou take not one thing after thy affection and
liking, and leave another: for that is the condition of an heretique. But take
everything with other." The old scribe knew well how prone we are to take to
ourselves those parts of the truth that please us and ignore the other parts. And
that is heresy. ~
A.W. Tozer

Here lay Cain's fatal mistake: "He was rejected, not because he was a sinner,
but because, being a sinner, he had dared to approach a holy God without
blood." ~
C.H. Mackintosh

"What a compelling motive we have for prayer, for preaching, for soul-winning
when we learn that every responsible human being who leaves this world
without a definite change in heart, immediately lifts his eyes in Hell, tormented
in flame!"
~John R. Rice

Speaking of John 10:27, "it becomes a question, not of our ability to hold onto
Him, but of
His ability to have secure hold on us. My friend, He said with the
infinite wisdom and full authority of the Godhead
that He can hold us and
that they who trust in Him shall never perish."
~J. Vernon McGee
