Martyn Lloyd Jones on Truth and Error

Posted by Miss Antoinette K. | Labels: , | Posted On Tuesday, August 31, 2010 at 8:00 AM

There are many today who regard truth and error as matters of small consequence; if a man lives rightly, they say, it matters not much what his beliefs and opinions are. Such statements do not surprise us. Night and day are all one to a blind man. Truth and error are all one to an ignorant man.

Thomas Watson on Affliction

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Thursday, August 26, 2010 at 9:00 AM

"To know that nothing hurts the godly, is a matter of comfort; but to be assured that all things which fall out shall co-operate for their good, that their crosses shall be turned into blessings, that showers of affliction water the withering root of their grace and make it flourish more; this may fill their hearts with joy till they run over."
Thomas Watson

David Brainerd on Lost Souls

Posted by Miss Antoinette K. | Labels: , | Posted On Wednesday, August 25, 2010 at 8:00 AM

"I care not where I go, or how I live, or what I endure so that I may save souls. When I sleep I dream of them; when I awake they are first in my thoughts.  No amount of scholastic attainment, of able and profound exposition of brilliant and stirring eloquence can atone for the absence of a deep impassioned sympathetic love for human souls."

John Bunyan on Prayer

Jonathan Edwards on Enjoyment of God

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , , | Posted On Friday, August 20, 2010 at 9:00 AM

"The enjoyment of [God] is the only happiness with which our souls can be satisfied. To go to heaven, fully to enjoy God, is infinitely better than the most pleasant accommodations here. Fathers and mothers, husbands, wives, or children, or the company of earthly friends, are but shadows; but God is the substance. These are but scattered beams, but God is the sun. These are but streams. But God is the ocean."
Jonathan Edwards

Jim Elliot on Passion

"God, I pray Thee, light these idle sticks of my life, that I may burn for Thee. Consume my life, my God, for it is Thine. I seek not a long life, but a full one, like You, Lord Jesus."

Abraham Kuyper on Faith and Science

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , , | Posted On Tuesday, August 17, 2010 at 9:38 AM

"Every science in a certain degree starts from faith, and, on the contrary, faith, which does not lead to science, is mistaken faith or superstition, but real, genuine faith it is not."
Abraham Kuyper

Loraine Boettner on the Sovereignty of God

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Monday, August 16, 2010 at 9:00 AM

"Although the sovereignty of God is universal and absolute, it is not the sovereignty of blind power. It is coupled with infinite wisdom, holiness and love. And this doctrine, when properly understood, is a most comforting and reassuring one. Who would not prefer to have his affairs in the hands of a God of infinite power, wisdom, holiness and love, rather than to have them left to fate, or chance, or irrevocable natural law, or to short-sighted and perverted self? Those who reject God's sovereignty should consider what alternatives they have left."
Loraine Boettner

Hugh Binning on Love

Posted by Miss Antoinette K. | Labels: , | Posted On Friday, August 13, 2010 at 9:00 AM

"If the love of God and of one another had kept the throne, there had been a co-ordination and co-working of all men in their actions, for God's glory and the common good of man.  But now, self-love having enthroned itself, every man is for himself, and strives by all means, to make a concurrence of all things to his own interests and designs." 
  
~Hugh Binning~

Robert Murray M'Cheyne on Temptation

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Thursday, August 12, 2010 at 9:00 AM

"I am tempted to think that I am now an established Christian,--that I have overcome this or that lust so long,--that I have got into the habit of the opposite grace,--so that there is no fear; I may venture very near the temptation--nearer than other men. This is a lie of Satan. One might as well speak of gunpowder getting by habit of resisting fire, so as not to catch spark. As long as powder is wet, it resists the spark; but when it becomes dry, it is ready to explode at the first touch. As long as the Spirit dwells in my heart, He deadens me to sin, so that, if lawfully called through temptation, I may reckon upon God carrying me through. But when the Spirit leaves me, I am like dry gunpowder. Oh for a sense of this!"
Robert Murray M'Cheyne

Abraham Kuyper on Convictions

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Tuesday, August 10, 2010 at 9:00 AM

"When principles that run against your deepest convictions begin to win the day, then battles is your calling, peace has become sin; you must, at the price of dearest peace, lay your convictions bare before friend and enemy, with all the fire of your faith."
Abraham Kuyper


Francis Schaeffer on Truth

"Today not only in philosophy but in politics, government, and individual morality, our generation sees solutions in terms of synthesis and not absolutes. When this happens, truth, as people have always thought of truth, has died."

John Calvin on Abortion

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Thursday, August 5, 2010 at 9:30 AM

“...for the fetus, though enclosed in the womb of its mother, is already a human being, and it is a most monstrous crime to rob it of the life, which it has not yet begun to enjoy. If it seems more horrible to kill a man in his own house than in a field, because a man’s house is his place of most secure refuge, it ought surely to be deemed more atrocious to destroy a fetus in the womb before it has come to light.”
John Calvin

Richard Baxter on Family

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , , | Posted On Wednesday, August 4, 2010 at 9:00 AM

“Get masters of families to do their duty, and they will not only spare you a great deal of labor, but will much further the success of your labors. If a captain can get the officers under him to do their duty, he may rule the soldiers with much less trouble, than if all lay upon his own shoulders. You are not like to see any general reformation, till you procure family reformation. Some little religion there may be, here and there; but while it is confined to single persons, and is not promoted in families, it will not prosper, nor promise much future increase.”
Richard Baxter
(from: The Reformed Pastor)
