A believer may fall, but he cannot fall away; he may fall foully, but he cannot fall finally; for, "underneath are the everlasting arms."

Matthew Mead (1630-1699)

Don't try to drown your sorrow in alcohol because sorrow is an expert swimmer.

Ann Landers

While millions have regretted tasting alcohol, no person will ever be sorry he rejected it.

Gordon Chilvers

God drags us out, as it were, from everything we have sought to hide behind and turns into bright daylight the night in which we have tried to become personless and eliminate our responsibility.

Helmut Thielicke (1908-1986)

Abortion is no more purely a medical problem just because the physician wields the curette than chemical warfare is purely a a problem for pilots because they press the lever releasing the chemical.

E. Fuller Torrey

Abortions are performed by the thousands simply because people want the freedom of promiscuous sex but not the responsibility of children.

R. Eugene Sterner

The difference between destroying "life" in a plant or animal and destroying the life of an unborn baby is that in human abortion life is destroyed that is an eternal soul, irreversibly stamped with the image of God.

R. Eugene Sterner

You can scrape the baby out of the womb, but you cannot scrape the baby out of the mind.

Frank J. Ayd, Jr.

Brethren, we must be with our Lord in the fight if we would be with Him in the victory.

C. H. Spurgeon (1834-1892)

No one has a right to believe that they are partakers of God's salvation unless they walk in the path of conscious, purposeful obedience and service to God.

J. I. Packer (1926-2020)

True saving peace loves to be examined, is willing to be examined, it loves to be tried. But false peace cannot endure examination; it flies from the light; it does not love to be tried.

William Bridge (1600-1670)

I pity from the bottom of my heart any individual who is so unfortunate as to get into the habit of holding race prejudice.

Booker T. Washington, first president of Tuskegee University (1856-1915)

Spiritual illumination is never denied those who approach the Bible with reverent deference. The same Spirit who inspired its writers now waits to illumine its readers.

J. Sidlow Baxter (1903-1999)

Thus to justify a man, Faith is greater; but in a man justified, Charity is greater. Let Faith alone with the great work of our salvation; but that finished, it shall end, and so yield superiority to Love, which shall endure forever.

Thomas Adams (1583-1652)

Many, I believe, act towards the Deity as they do towards their friends: they make up their minds and then ask to be directed.

John Angell James (1785-1859)

A Christian should make everything bend to religion, but allow religion to bend to nothing. This is the one thing needful, to which everything should be subordinate. The neglect of this plain and reasonable rule is becoming, I am afraid, more and more prevalent.

John Angell James (1785-1859)

Experience had taught me that innocence seldom utters outraged shrieks. Guilt does. Innocence is a mighty shield, and the man or woman covered by it, is much more likely to answer calmly: "My life is blameless. Look into it, if you like, for you will find nothing." That is the tone of innocence.

Whittaker Chambers (1901-1961)

Perhaps there is no advice, generally speaking, more thrown away than that which is offered on the subject of marriage.

John Angell James (1785-1859)

Effort must be expended for one to become wise. Getting wisdom involves openness, retention, hearing (with the ear), applying (with the heart), requesting, and diligent searching.

Sid S. Buzzell

The Scripture itself [e.g., Heb 6:5-6; 2 Pet 2:20-22], therefore, leads us to the conclusion that it is possible to have very uplifting, ennobling, reforming, and exhilarating experience of the power and truth of the gospel, to come into such close contact with the supernatural forces which are operative in God's kingdom of grace that these forces produce effects in us which to human observation are hardly distinguishable from those produced by God's regenerating and sanctifying grace and yet not be partakers of Christ and heirs of eternal life.

John Murray (1898-1975)

Candour, as it relates to the treatment of an adversary, is that temper of mind which will induce us to treat him openly, fairly, and ingenuously; granting him every thing that can be granted consistently with truth, and and entertaining the most favourable opinion of his character and conduct that justice will admit.

Andrew Fuller (1754-1815)

Nearly 40 years ago one of the world's best-known psychiatrists, Dr. Thomas Szasz, recommended taking mental health care away from the professionals, such as M.D.'s and Ph.D.'s and giving 'this whole business back to the ministers and priests and rabbis.'

Martin & Diedre Bobgan

No one has scientifically studied or proven the value of the use of mental health professions and psychological tests to screen or evaluate missionary candidates.

Martin & Deidre Bobgan

It is depravity that directs us to seek satisfaction in something short of God; but it is owing to the nature of the soul that we are never able to find it.

Andrew Fuller (1754-1815)

Justification is the imputation to the sinner of Christ's perfect obedience to the eternal moral law of God. This judicial constitution of the believer as righteous by faith enables an infinitely holy God to accept, pronounce and forever treat him as righteous.

Rolland D. McCune (1934-2019)
