 Re:

"Sin has not only put a film on the eye, but destroyed the capacity to see. It has ruined the faculty of spiritual insight, and struck the soul with blindness. The only perfect cure is the salve of experimental grace. A man may have all the learning in the world, and all the culture the schools can afford, and yet be a mere novice in spiritual understanding."

-Asbury Lowrey

 Re:


"A revival breaks the power of the world and of sin over Christians. It brings them to such vantage ground that they get a fresh impulse toward heaven. They have a new foretaste of heaven and new desires after union with God; and the charm of the world is broken, and the power of sin overcome. When the churches are thus awakened and reformed, the reformation and salvation of sinners will follow, going through the same stages of conviction, repentance, and reformation. Their hearts will be broken down and changed. Very often the most abandoned profligates are among the subjects. Harlots and drunkards and infidels and all sorts of abandoned characters are awakened and converted. The worst among human beings are softened, and reclaimed, and made to appear as lovely specimens of the beauty of holiness. "O Lord, revive thy work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make known, in wrath remember mercy" ( Hab. 3:2)."
-Charles G. Finney

 Great Quotes 6

Now while Paul was waiting for them at Athens, his spirit
was provoked within him as he saw that the city was full of
idols. So he reasoned in the synagogue with the Jews and the
devout persons, and in the marketplace every day with those
who happened to be there. Some of the Epicurean and Stoic
philosophers also conversed with him. And some said, "What
does this babbler wish to say?" Others said, "He seems to be a
preacher of foreign divinities"--because he was preaching
Jesus and the resurrection. And they took hold of him and
brought him to the Areopagus, saying, "May we know what this
new teaching is that you are presenting? For you bring some
strange things to our ears. We wish to know therefore what
these things mean." Now all the Athenians and the foreigners
who lived there would spend their time in nothing except
telling or hearing something new.

So Paul, standing in the midst of the Areopagus,
said: "Men of Athens, I perceive that in every way you are very
religious. For as I passed along and observed the objects of
your worship, I found also an altar with this inscription, 'To
the unknown god.' What therefore you worship as unknown, this
I proclaim to you."
-- Acts 17:16-23 (ESV)

Quotation:
If those who say that we must preach the same message as
Paul and the other apostles mean that we should also exhibit
the same adaptability and sensitivity to the background
culture, then they are right... If, however, they mean that we
should expect results merely by repeating the actual phrases
found in the New Testament, then they are mistaken. They are
making, in fact, one of the basic mistakes in verbal
communication, which is to confuse words with what they
describe. The gospel is something God has done, not a series
of phrases describing it. Saying this does not undermine the
Christian's belief in the inspiration of the Bible, for the
important thing about the Bible is what it talks about, rather
than the way it does the talking. If we considered that there
was the same degree of essential inspiration in the way it
does the talking, then we would have to insist that every
Christian learn Hebrew and Greek. The mere fact that we in the
Western world read translations of the scriptures is a clear
admission that times and cultures have changed.
... Gavin Reid, The Gagging of God [1969]

 Re: Great Quotes 6

"When thou prayest, rather let thy heart be without words, than thy words without thy heart."

"Prayer will make a man cease from sin, or sin will entice a man to cease from prayer."

"Prayer is a shield to the soul, a sacrifice to God, and a scourge for Satan."

-John Bunyan

Prayer is as natural an expression of faith as breathing is of life.

"Brethren, we must preach
the doctrines;
we must emphasize
the doctrines;
we must go back to
the doctrines.

I fear that the new generation does not know the doctrines
as our fathers knew them."

"In the Scriptures there is a portrait of God, but in Christ there is God himself. A coin bears the image of Caesar, but Caesar’s son is his own lively resemblance. Christ is the living Bible."
