“Captain, my religious belief teaches me to feel as safe in battle as in bed. God has fixed the time for my death. I do not concern myself about that, but to be always ready, no matter when it may overtake me....That is the way all men should live, and then all would be equally brave.”

~Thomas (Stonewall) Jackson Speaking to Captain John D. Imboden (24 July 1861)~

Thomas Manton on Affliction

Posted by Miss Antoinette K. | Labels: , | Posted On Wednesday, September 26, 2012 at 8:00 AM

"The whole creation groans, and God's children bear a part in the concert.  They have their share in the world's miseries; and domestical crosses are common to them with other men in the world; yea, their condition is worse than others'.  Chaff and corn are threshed in the same floor, but the corn is grinded in the mill and baked in the oven.  Jeremiah was in the dungeon when the city was besieged.  The world hates them more than others, and God loves them more than others.  The world hates them because they are so good, and God corrects them because they are no better."

~Thomas Manton~

~John Adams~



Thomas Watson on Corrosion

"When rust cleaves to metal, it not only takes away the brightness of the metal, but it cankers and consumes it: so when the earth cleaves to men's souls, it not only hinders the shining lustre of their graces, but by degrees it cankers them."  
~Thomas Watson~

Charles Spurgeon on Idolatry

Posted by Miss Antoinette K. | Labels: , , | Posted On Wednesday, September 19, 2012 at 8:00 AM

"When a man thinks that he has escaped from the bondage of sin in general, and yet evidently remains under the power of some one favored lust, he is woefully mistaken in his judgment as to his spiritual freedom."
~Excerpt from:
"Flowers from a Puritan's Garden (pg. 7) Charles H. Spurgeon~

R. J. Rushdoony on Law

Posted by Miss Antoinette K. | Labels: , , , , | Posted On Monday, September 17, 2012 at 8:00 AM

"To attempt to study Scripture without studying its law is to deny it.  To attempt to understand Western civilization apart from the impact of Biblical law within it and upon it is to seek a fictitious history and to reject twenty centuries and their progress."
~Introduction to:
"The Institutes of Biblical Law" (pg. 2) by R. J. Rushdoony~

Martyn Lloyd-Jones on the Christian Life

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Tuesday, September 11, 2012 at 8:00 AM

"You can organize marches and make your protests. It all comes to nothing, and makes not the slightest difference to anyone. But if you have a large number of individual Christians in a nation, or in the world, then and only then can you begin to expect Christian conduct on the international and national level. I do not listen to a man who tells me how to solve the world's problems if he cannot solve his own personal problems. If a man's home is in a state of discord, his opinions about the state of the nation or the state of the world are purely theoretical."
Martyn Lloyd-Jones


Martyn Lloyd-Jones on the Church

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Monday, September 10, 2012 at 8:00 AM


"The glory of the gospel is that when the Church is absolutely different from the world, she invariably attracts it. It is then that the world is made to listen to her message, though it may hate it at first. That is how revival comes. That must also be true of us as individuals. It should not be our ambition to be as much like everybody else as we can, though we happen to be Christian, but rather to be as different from everybody who is not a Christian as we can possibly be. Our ambition should be to be like Christ, the more like Him the better, and the more like Him we become, the more we shall be unlike everybody who is not a Christian"
Martyn Lloyd-Jones


J. Gresham Machen on LIberty and Freedom

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , , | Posted On Friday, September 7, 2012 at 8:00 AM


"Today the world is in a state far more disquieting than that which prevailed in 1918. Europe is armed to the teeth. Russia stands under the most systematic and soul-crushing tyranny that the world has ever seen. In Germany fiendish wickedness is being practiced in the name of science, and in that country as well as in Italy even the form of liberty, to say nothing of the reality of it, has been abandoned. Civil and religious liberty is being treated openly as though it had been merely a passing phase in human life, well enough in its day, but now out of date. In America, the same tendencies are mightily at work. Everywhere there rises before our eyes the specter of a society where security, if it is attained at all, will be attained at the expense of freedom, where the security that is attained will be the security of fed beasts in a stable, and where all the high aspirations of humanity will have been crushed by an all-powerful State."
J. Gresham Machen
