Famous Quotes:

  • Salvation is from our side a choice, from the divine side it is a seizing upon, an apprehending, a conquest by the Most High God. Our accepting and willing are reactions rather than actions. The right of determination must always remain with God.
  • Keep your feet on the ground, but let your heart soar as high as it will. Refuse to be average or to surrender to the chill of your spiritual environment. -- The Root Of The Righteous
  • To be right with God has often meant to be in trouble with men.
  • One hundred religious persons knit into a unity by careful organizations do not constitute a church any more than eleven dead men make a football team. The first requisite is life, always.
  • The vague and tenuous hope that God is too kind to punish the ungodly has become a deadly opiate for the consciences of millions.
  • The man or woman who is wholly or joyously surrendered to Christ can't make a wrong choice--any choice will be the right one.
  • In almost everything that touches our everyday life on earth, God is pleased when we're pleased. He wills that we be as free as birds to soar and sing our maker's praise without anxiety.
  • No man should desire to be happy who is not at the same time holy. He should spend his efforts in seeking to know and do the will of God, leaving to Christ the matter of how happy he should be.
  • What I believe about God is the most important thing about me.
  • Christianity takes for granted the absence of any self-help and offers a power which is nothing less than the power of God.
