"Pilgrim and Sojourner." - 1 Peter 2:11



"For I am verily persuaded the generality of preachers talk of an
unknown and unfelt Christ; and the reason why congregations
have been so dead is, because they have had dead men
preaching to them." --Gilbert Tennent.

"Go for souls, and go for the worst!" --William Booth

"The noise was like the roar of Niagara. The vast sea of human
beings seemed to be agitated as if by a storm. I counted seven
ministers, all preaching at one time, some on stumps, others in
wagons and one standing on a treet which had, in falling, lodged
against another. ...I stepped up on a log where I could have a
better view of the surging sea of humanity. The scene that then
presented itself to my mind was indescribable. At one time I saw
at least five hundred swept down in a moment as if a battery of a
thousand guns had been opened upon them, and then immediately
followed shrieks and shouts that rent the very heavens." -- James
Finley, later a Methodist Circuit Rider / Cane Ridge Revival.

"The bars were not the only places to be emptied. Dance halls,
theaters, and football matches all saw a dramatic decline in
attendance. The courts and jails were deserted and the police
found themselves without any work to do. The story is told of
policemen who closed their station and formed a choir to sing at
the Revival meetings. Long-standing debts were repaid, church
and family feuds were healed and a new unity of purpose was felt
across denominational divides." -- The Welsh Revival of 1904.

"I have known people who prayed till they were soaked in sweat on
a cold winter's day. I have known people who have prayed for hours
until they were totally drained of strength because of the agony of
their souls. I have worked with a man of this calibre." --Charles Finney

"Can any deny that in the modern church setup the main cause of
anxiety is money? Yet that which tries the modern churches the
most, troubled the New Testament Church the least. Our accent is
on paying; theirs was on praying. When we have paid, the place is
taken; when they had prayed, the place was shaken!" --Leonard Ravenhill

"I value all things only by the price they shall gain in eternity."
- John Wesley

"Wherever riches have increased, the essence of religion has
decreased in the same riches increase, so will
pride, anger, and love of the world in all its branches." --John Wesley

"When I have money, I get rid of it quickly, lest it find a way into
my heart." --John Wesley

"If Christians were not such cowards, and absolutely disobedient
to this plain command of God ('Thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy
neighbor, and not suffer sin upon him'), one thing would certainly
come of it--either they would be murdered in the streets as martyrs,
because men could not bear the intolerable presence of truth, or
they would be speedily converted to God." --Charles Finney.
