QUOTES 120

 

**The human race is the Devil's fruit tree, his own property, from which he may pick his fruit.

--Augustine

 

**The devil is a refined pyschologist. He has been studying in practice for over six thousand years how to seduce men. He knows our weak spots. He is just like a good cattle-dealer who has to go around a cow only once to see all its weak spots. The devil is not omnipresent, but he has an exceptionally good secret service at his disposal in his army of demons.

--Corrie ten Boom

 

**Organized religion is a sham and a crutch for weak-minded people who need strength in numbers. It tells people to go out and stick their noses in other people's business.

--Jesse "The Mind" Ventura, Governor, Minnesota

  

**Public opinion will wax and wane, but there is truth, and there is right, and it is far better to try to align oneself with that which is true and right, regardless of public opinion.

--Ken Starr

  

**When God intends great mercy for His people, the first thing He does is to set them praying.

--Matthew Henry

 

 **It is most significant that since the Reformation, revivals have recurred with increasing frequency. Again and again God has rescued that which had gone beyond all human aid: what could have saved the church but these gracious interventions of almighty power? The need can but grow more urgent as the age draws to a close. When revivals cease to flow from the mercy of God, judgement must come.

--D.M. Panton

 

 **A revival of religion is indispensable to avert the judgement of God from the church.... The fact is, Christians are more to blame for not being revived, than sinners are for not being converted. And if Christians are not awakened, they may know assuredly that God will visit them with His judgements. How often God visited the Jewish church with judgements because they would not repent and be revived at the call of His prophets.

--Charles G. Finney

  

**An "open mind" is an open door to Satan. We need to have the mind of Christ. His mind is revealed in Scripture. Close your mind, and open the Word!

--R.K. Stewart

 

 **If you wish to know God, you must know his Word. If you wish to perceive his power, you must see how he works by his Word. If you wish to know his purpose before it comes to pass, you can only discover it by his Word.

--C.H. Spurgeon

 

 **Do not trifle with your intellectual life. Nourish it with clear waters and healthful food. Do not give a book a place on your library table when you would throw the author out of the window if he dared to say to your family the things which he has written.

--Charles L. Goodell

 

 **Christianity will go. It will vanish and shrink. I needn't argue about that. I'm right and will be proved right. We're more popular than Jesus now.

--John Lennon [Beatles], 1966

  

**Many men are wise for a time and foolish for eternity.

--T. De Witt Talmage, 1832-1902

 

**The noncommitted have no right to ask any questions.

--Helmut Thielicke

 

 **This is one of the richest rewards of truly knowing the scriptures. No other book provides such an inexhaustible mine of precious treasures to those who are content to delve into it. It is a field for endless study and ceaseless discovery, and the humblest believer may find hid treasure never before dug up by any other, and therefore peculiarly his own. No more unanswerable proof of the divine origin of the Bible can be found than this capacity to reveal to every devout reader something absolutley new.

--A.T. Pierson, 1837-1911

 

 **Deliverance from the power of evil one comes through definite resistance on the ground of the cross.

--J. O. Fraser
