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

There is clearly a difference between what God desires and what God wills and brings to pass.

David Martyn Lloyd-Jones

He that never meditates of his sins, is never like to be broken-hearted for his sins.

Thomas Hooker (1586-1647)

Pressure put upon people to come forward in decision ultimately is due to a lack of faith in the work and operation of the Holy Spirit.

David Martyn Lloyd-Jones

That ministry which does not ordinarily humble the soul, and break the heart for sin, does not convert and draw home to Christ.

Thomas Hooker [1586-1647]

If you did consider your own weakness, you would not say that repentance is in your own power.

Thomas Hooker [1586-1647]

Who was ever converted reading what the sinner liked to read, but sinners were known to be converted forcing themselves to read the Word they hated.

John Gerstner

A pastor is a man who is given charge of souls. He is not merely a nice, pleasant man who visits people and has an afternoon cup of tea with them, or passes the time of day with them. He is the guardian, the custodian, the protector, the organizer, the director, the ruler of the flock.

David Martyn Lloyd-Jones

Nothing is more wonderful than to know that God loves you; and no man can truly know that God loves him except in Jesus Christ and Him crucified.

David Martyn Lloyd-Jones
