Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , , | Posted On Tuesday, April 26, 2016 at 5:30 AM

R.J. Rushdoony


John Gerstner on Hell

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Monday, April 25, 2016 at 5:27 AM

“The idea of a hell that involves some kind of eternal punishment at the hands of a just and holy God is so profoundly difficult for us to handle emotionally, that the only person who would have enough authority to convince us of the reality of such a place would be Jesus Himself.”

John Gerstner

John Wesley on Preachers

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Thursday, April 21, 2016 at 5:30 AM

“Give me one hundred preachers who fear nothing but sin, and desire nothing but God, and I care not a straw whether they be clergymen or laymen.  Such alone will shake the gates of Hell and set up the kingdom of Heaven upon Earth.”

John Wesley


Jonathan Edwards on Salvation

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Wednesday, April 20, 2016 at 5:30 AM

“True salvation always produces an abiding change of nature in a true convert. Therefore, whenever holiness of life does not accompany a confession of conversion, it must be understood that this individual is not a Christian.”

Jonathan Edwards

Charles Spurgeon on God

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Monday, April 18, 2016 at 7:21 PM

“To say there is no God is to belie the plainest evidence, which is obstinacy; to oppose the common consent of mankind, which is stupidity; to stifle consciousness, which is madness.”

Charles Spurgeon

St. Jerome on Scripture

Ignatius of Antioch on the Life of a Christian

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Monday, April 11, 2016 at 5:30 AM

“We recognize a tree by its fruit, and we ought to be able to recognize a Christian by his action. The fruit of faith should be evident in our lives, for being a Christian is more than making sound professions of faith. It should reveal itself in practical and visible ways. Indeed it is better to keep quiet about our beliefs, and live them out, than to talk eloquently about what we believe, but fail to live by it.”

Ignatius of Antioch


A. A. Hodge on Sanctification

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Friday, April 8, 2016 at 5:30 AM

“Sanctification necessarily begins with, and indefinitely continues as a consequent of regeneration. It is not an act, but a work of God's grace, wherein he sustains and develops, perfects and continues, the work which he has commenced. He himself teaches us the relation of these graces, one to the other, by metaphors and analogies between the natural and the spiritual life. Regeneration is begetting, or, on the other hand, it is the new birth, and therein we are born babes in Christ. Sanctification is a growth under the sustaining and supporting influences of the Holy Spirit dwelling within us.”

A. A. Hodge


A. A. Hodge on the Kingdom of God

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Thursday, April 7, 2016 at 5:30 AM

“Since the kingdom of God on earth is not confined to the mere ecclesiastical sphere, but aims at absolute universality and extends its supreme reign over every department of human life, it follows that it is the duty of every loyal subject to endeavor to bring all human society, social and political, as well as ecclesiastical, into obedience to its law of righteousness. It is our duty, as far as lies in our power, immediately to organize human society and all its institutions and organs upon a distinctively Christian basis. Indifference or impartiality here between the law of the kingdom and the law of the world, or of its prince the devil, is utter treason to the King of righteousness. The Bible, the great statute-book of the kingdom, explicitly lays down principles which when candidly applied will regulate the action of every human being in all relations. There can be no compromise. The King said with regard to all descriptions of moral agents in all spheres of activity, "He that is not with me is against me." If the national life in general is organized upon non-Christian principles, the churches which are embraced within the universal assimilating power of that nation will not long be able to preserve their integrity.”

A. A. Hodge on God and Knowledge

“It is plain that as God is the Creator of all things, he must be the ultimate ground and centre of all things. Therefore our knowledge of God, no matter how we have gained it, must be fundamental and central to all our other knowledge of every kind.”

A. A. Hodge on Providence

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Monday, April 4, 2016 at 5:30 AM

“We should clearly apprehend and firmly hold the obvious truth that what we distinguish as the natural and the supernatural providence of God—for example, his ordinary providence, his gracious operations and his miraculous interventions—are nevertheless inseparable parts of one harmonious system in execution of one plan and the various manifestations of the energy of one God.”

A. A. Hodge


Stephen Charnock on Worhsip

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Friday, April 1, 2016 at 5:30 AM

“When we believe that we should be satisfied rather than God glorified in our worship, then we put God below ourselves as though He had been made for us rather than that we had been made for Him.”

Stephen Charnock
