“I am not permitted to let my love be so merciful as to tolerate and
endure false doctrine. When faith and doctrine are concerned and
endangered, neither love nor patience is in order…. when these
are concerned, neither toleration nor mercy is in order, but only
anger, dispute, and destruction — to be sure, only with the Word
of God as our weapon.” – Martin Luther.
“It is our solemn conviction that where there can be no real spiritual
communion there should be no pretense of fellowship. Fellowship
with known and vital error is participation in sin.” -Charles Spurgeon.
“Showing mercy to the wolf is showing cruelty to the sheep.” – Puritan.
“Knowing God without knowing our wretchedness leads to pride.
Knowing our wretchedness without knowing God leads to despair.
Knowing Christ gives the balance.” – Blaise Pascal
“Let us think often that our only business in this life is to please
God. Perhaps all besides is but folly and vanity.”
– Brother Lawrence
“The greatest need we have is not to do things, but to believe
things.” – Oswald Chambers
“Growth is not more knowledge or increase of years; it is simply
more of Him and less of me. He increases as I decrease. This is
what it means to be a disciple.” – Chip Brogden
“Worldliness is what any particular culture does to make sin look
normal and righteousness look strange.” – David Wells
“Some say that faith is the gift of God. So is the air, but you have
to breathe it; so is bread, but you have to eat it. Some are wanting
some miraculous kind of feeling. That is not faith. ‘Faith cometh by
hearing and hearing by the Word of God (Rom 10:17). That is
whence faith comes. It is not for me to sit down and wait for faith
to come stealing over me with a strong sensation, but is for me to
take God at His Word.” – D. L. Moody
