John Owen on Grace

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Thursday, December 30, 2010 at 9:00 AM

"There is an infinite distance between God and His creatures, and it is an act of sheer grace for Him to take notice of earthly things. Christ, as God, is completely self-sufficient in His own eternal blessedness. How great, then, is the glory of His self-humiliation in taking our nature that He might bring us to God! Such humiliation was not forced on Him; He freely chose to do it."
John Owen

John Adams on the Commandments

Posted by Miss Antoinette K. | Labels: , , | Posted On Monday, December 27, 2010 at 9:00 AM

"The moment the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence.  If 'Thou shalt not covet' and 'Thou shalt not steal' were not commandments of heaven, they must be made inviolable precepts in every society before it can be civilized or made free."
~John Adams~

A.W. Pink on Contentment

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Thursday, December 16, 2010 at 9:00 AM

"Contentment, then, is the product of a heart resting in God. It is the soul's enjoyment of that peace that passes all understanding. It is the outcome of my will being brought into subjection to the Divine will. It is the blessed assurance that God does all things well, and is, even now, making all things work together for my ultimate good."
A.W. Pink

~John Adams~

Martyn Lloyd-Jones on True Christianity

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Wednesday, December 8, 2010 at 8:58 AM

"The most vital question to ask about all who claim to be Christian is this: Have they a soul thirst for God? Do they long for this? Is there something about them that tells you that they are always waiting for His next manifestation of Himself? Is their life centred on Him? Can they say with Paul that they forget everything in the past? Do they press forward more and more that they might know Him and that the knowledge might increase, until eventually beyond death and the grave they may bask eternally in 'the sunshine of His face?' That I might know him!"
Martyn Lloyd-Jones

John Adams on Man and State

Posted by Miss Antoinette K. | Labels: , , | Posted On Friday, December 3, 2010 at 9:00 AM

"I believe in God and in His wisdom and benevolence: and I cannot conceive that such a being could make such a species as the human merely to live and die on this earth. 
If I did not believe a future state I should believe in no God.  This universe, this all, would appear with all it's swelling pomp, a boyish firework!"
~John Adams~

George Mason from His Last Will and Testament

Posted by Miss Antoinette K. | Labels: , , | Posted On Wednesday, December 1, 2010 at 9:00 AM

"I recommend it to my sons, from my own experience in life, to prefer the happiness of independance and a private station to the roubles and vexations of public business; but if either their own inclinations or the necessity of the times should engage them in public affairs, I charge them, on a father's blessing, never to let the motives of private interest or ambition to induce them to betray, nor the terrors of poverty and disgrace, or the fear of danger of death deter them from asserting the liberty of their counrty, and endeavoring to transmit their posterity those sacred rights to which themselves were born."

~George Mason~
