The most effective sermons are those which make opposers of the Gospel bite their lips and gnash their teeth

Charles H. Spurgeon

I would not have you exchange the gold of individual Christianity for the base metal of Christian Socialism.

Charles H. Spurgeon

Beware the man who beats his own drum. Beware the man who toots his own horn. Run from the man who does both.

John S. Waldrip

Our sins have so wronged God, have been so much against God, that it is only God can make up the wrong. Only such a mediator as Christ, who is both God and man, can make it up.

Jeremiah Burroughs (1599-1646)

Sin makes this profession, that there is not enough good in God to satisfy this soul, or else why does the soul depart from Him in any sinful way and go to the creature for any good if there is enough in God Himself?

Jeremiah Burroughs (1599-1646)

The virgin who takes the high road of personal holiness and commitment to spiritual excellence is a rare jewel.

John S. Waldrip

No one who serves God would ever agree with an unsaved man's estimation that Christianity is either boring or unfulfilling.

John S. Waldrip

To us the plenary verbal inspiration of Holy Scripture is a fact, and not hypothesis.

Charles H. Spurgeon (1834-1892)

It should not be frightening to a man that he is bothered by God, since men are always disturbed when their lives are touched by the omnipotent God. What should frighten a thinking man is to realize that God has left him alone. To be left alone by God is to be doomed without remedy.

John S. Waldrip

Many shrink from investigation when they find that things which they fondly believed, incorporated in their prayers and hopes, and portrayed with eloquence, are subject of being built upon a sandy foundation.

George H. H. Peters

Friendship evangelism is a great idea, except when it’s all friendship and no evangelism.

Ronnie Floyd

Eternity cannot be affected but by prayer.

John S. Waldrip

Uneasy is the heart until it rests in Thee.


The doctrines of original sin, election, and effectual calling, final perseverance, and all those great truths which are called Calvinism – though Calvin was not the author of them, but simply an able writer and preacher upon the subject – are, I believe, the essential doctrines of the gospel that is in Jesus Christ. Now, I do not ask you whether you believe all this – it is possible you may not; but I believe you will before you enter heaven.

Charles H. Spurgeon

I think my main word to American preachers is, as Stephen Olford has often said, that we belong in a study, not in an office. The symbol of our ministry is a Bible — not a telephone. We are ministers of the Word, not administrators, and we need to relearn the question of priority in every generation. The Apostles were in danger of being diverted from the ministry to which they had been called by Jesus — the ministry of Word and prayer. They were almost diverted into a social ministry for squabbling widows. Now both are important, and both are ministries, but the Apostles had been called to the ministry of the Word and not the ministry of tables. They had to delegate the ministry of the tables to other servants. We are not Apostles, but there is the work of teaching that has come to us in the unfolding of the apostolic message of the New Testament. This is our priority as pastors and preachers. Jesus preached to the crowds, to the group, and to the individual. He had the masses, the disciples, and individuals coming to Him. He preached to crowds, taught the disciples, and counseled individuals. We must also have this focus. It is all in the ministry of the Word.

John R. W. Stott

There is a consequence of the Law, and that is this: you have sinned and, therefore, you must be damned. But the consequence of the gospel is this: you have sinned, therefore go to Jesus Christ.

Jeremiah Burroughs

Faith is a life that dares to commit beyond it's means, expecting what sense cannot certify, based on God's promise, dependent on God's supply, motivated for God's glory, and confident in God's integrity.

Dr Kenneth Connolly

If your Christianity will not get you to church, it should not be relied on to get you to heaven.

John S. Waldrip

Courage…is the indispensable requisite of any true ministry…. Courage is good everywhere, but it is necessary here. If you are afraid of men and a slave to their opinion, go and do something else. Go and make shoes to fit them…. But do not keep on all your life preaching sermons which shall say not what God sent you to declare, but what they hire you to say.

Philips Brooks

To think Planned Parenthood primarily exists for other reasons and services [than murdering the unborn] is akin to believing that brothels exist to give men ample opportunities to engage in conversation.

Tony Lee

We don't know a millionth of 1 percent about anything.

Thomas Edison

The Word of God is a heart affecting book, and when we begin to sing its praises it soon comes home to us, and sets us praying to be ourselves conformed to its teachings.

Charles H. Spurgeon

There are four things which, unless we are well instructed in and know, we will know nothing to any purpose. The things which we must know are God, sin, Christ, and eternity. These are the four great things that you need to be well-instructed in.

Jeremiah Burroughs (1599-1646)

God looks not at the oratory of your prayers, how elegant they may be; nor at the geometry of your prayers, how long they be; nor at the arithmetic of your prayers, how many they be; nor at the logic of your prayers, how methodical they be; but at the sincerity of them He looks at.

Thomas Brooks

Sin is the only object of the hatred of God; nothing is the object of God's hatred but sin.

Richard Steele
