Richard Sibbes on Obedience

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Tuesday, March 29, 2011 at 9:18 AM

"Partial obedience is not obedience at all; to single out easy things that do not oppose our lusts, which are not against our reputation, therein some will do more than they need; but our obedience must be universal to all God's commandments, and that because He commands it. Empty relationships are nothing; if we profess ourselves God's servants and do not honour Him by our obedience, we take but an empty title."
Richard Sibbes

Charles Spurgeon on the Family

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Thursday, March 24, 2011 at 9:00 AM

"The Christian family was the bulwark of godliness in the days of the Puritans; but in these evil times hundreds of families of so-called Christians have no family worship, no restraint upon growing sons, and no wholesome instruction or discipline. See how the families of many professors are as dressy, as gay, as godless as the children of the non-religious! How can we hope to see the kingdom of our Lord advance when his own disciples do not teach his gospel to their own sons and daughters?"
Charles Spurgeon

J.C. Ryle on Sin

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Wednesday, March 9, 2011 at 8:09 AM

"Let us, then, have it fixed down in our minds that the sinfulness of man does not begin from without, but from within. It is not the result of bad training in early years. It is not picked up from bad companions and bad examples, as some weak Christians are too fond of saying. No! It is a family disease, which we all inherit from our first parents, Adam and Eve, and with which we are born."
J.C. Ryle

“We should bring our children with us to the publick teaching, so may our private teaching prove profitable. Oftentimes divine truths are as nails, one teaching sets them in, and the other teaching fastens them; one plants and the other waters, and so of both God gives increase."

Phillip Goodwin
(From: "Family Religion Revived, or a Treatise as to discover the good old way of serving God in private Houses; so to Recover the Pious Practice of those Precious, Duties unto their Primitive platform.")
