If criticism has made such discoveries as to necessitate the abandonment of the doctrine of plenary inspiration, it is not enough to say that we are compelled to abandon only a "particular theory of inspiration..." We must go on to say that that "particular theory of inspiration" is the theory of the apostles and of the Lord, and that in abandoning it we are abandoning them. (Quote by - B. B. Warfield)

(Quote by - Bruce Lowe)

EPIPHANY A scientist said, making a plea for exchange scholarships between nations, "The very best way to send an idea is to wrap it up in a person." That was what happened at Christmas. The idea of divine love was wrapped up in a Person. (Quote by - Halford E. Luccock)

Broadly speaking, I learned to recognize sin as the refusal to live up to the enlightenment we possess: to know the right order of values and deliberately to choose the lower ones: to know that, however much these values may differ with different people at different stages of spiritual growth, for one's self there must be no compromise with that which one knows to be the lower value. (Quote by - Margaret Bondfield)

The trouble with Communism is the Communists, just as the trouble with Christianity is the Christians. (Quote by - Henry Louis Mencken)

Yes,--rather plunge me back in pagan night, And take my chance with Socrates for bliss, Than be the Christian of a faith like this, Which builds on heavenly cant its earthly sway, And in a convert mourns to lose a prey. (Quote by - Thomas Moore)

Feast of Thomas Becket, Archbishop of Canterbury, Martyr, 1170 Belief in God through Christ is the most important of all aids to the following of Christ, but (let us never forget) the following is the great thing. To those who, by whatever means they are attracted to Him, really seek to do God's will as He revealed it, Christ will prove a Saviour -- a Saviour from sin, a Saviour from the power of sin here, and from the misery which sin brings with it here and hereafter. (Quote by - James Hastings Rashdall)

What was invented two thousand years ago was the spirit of Christianity. (Quote by - Gerald Stanley Lee)

It is not by driving away our brother that we can be alone with God. (Quote by - George Macdonald)

Organized religion is making Christianity political rather than making politics Christian. (Quote by - Laurens Van der Post)

There are tons of great Christian artists who don't have access to the marketing machinery to get their names and music into the right hands. And there are a wealth of venues ? from churches, to coffee houses, Christian colleges, concert promoters, and Christian music festivals ? that are looking for these talents. (Quote by - Gary LeMaster)

Feast of Augustine, first Archbishop of Canterbury, 605 We must try to be at one and the same time for the Church and against the Church. They alone can serve her faithfully whose consciences are continually exercised as to whether they ought not, for Christ's sake, to leave her. (Quote by - Alec R. Vidler)

Feast of Luke the Evangelist Study universal holiness of life. Your whole usefulness depends on this, for your sermons last but an hour or two: your life preaches all week. If Satan can only make a covetous minister a lover of praise, of pleasure, of good eating, he has ruined your ministry. Give yourself to prayer, and get your texts, your thoughts, your words, from God. (Quote by - Robert Murray M'cheyne)

The idea of Christ is much older than Christianity. (Quote by - George Santayana)

Somewhere, and I can't find where, I read about an Eskimo hunter who asked the local missionary priest, 'If I did not know about God and sin, would I go to hell?' 'No', said the priest, 'not if you did not know.' 'Then why,' asked the Eskimo earnestly, 'did you tell me?' (Quote by - Annie Dillard)

Commemoration of Brooke Foss Westcott, Bishop of Durham, Teacher, 1901 Be not afraid to pray... to pray is right. Pray if thou canst with hope; but ever pray Though hope be weak, or sick with long delay. Whatever is good to wish, ask that of heaven; But if for any wish thou darest not pray, Then pray to God to cast that wish away. (Quote by - Hartley Coleridge)

Evangelical Christianity, as everyone knows, is founded upon hate, as the Christianity of Christ was founded upon love. (Quote by - Henry Louis Mencken)

Christians are supposed to love each other. Communists are supposed to share bonds with all proletarians and other communists. Every ideological group proclaims universality, and all of them bicker internally, never displaying unity except in the face of a common enemy. Humanism today is the common enemy of Christians. (Quote by - Gary North)

If God bores you, tell Him that He bores you, that you prefer the vilest amusements to His presence, that you only feel at your ease when you are far from Him. (Quote by - Fran ois F nelon)
