More GREAT QUOTES "Preaching truth without the anointing of the Holy Ghost is helping the devil to damn souls. There's nothing on earth today so deadening as preaching without heaven's anointing. Refrain from preaching unless you know that the dew of heaven is on your soul." -- Duncan Campbell "Are not the Church in their present state, a standing, public, perpetual denial of the gospel? Do they not stand out before the world, as a living, unanswerable contradiction?" --Charles Finney "Cowards never won heaven. Do not claim that you are begotten of God and have His royal blood running in your veins unless you can prove your lineage by this heroic spirit: to dare to be holy in spite of men and devils." -- William Gurnall "Christians don't tell lies - they just go to church and sing them." --A.W. Tozer "Any concept of grace that makes us feel more comfortable sinning is not biblical grace. God's grace never encourages us to live in sin, on the contrary, it empowers us to say no to sin and yes to truth." -- Randy Alcorn "An unholy church! it is useless to the world, and of no esteem among men. It is an abomination, hell´s laughter, heaven´s abhorrence. The worst evils which have ever come upon the world have been brought upon her by an unholy church." --C.H. Spurgeon "I am not afraid that the people called Methodists should ever cease to exist either in Europe or America. But I am afraid lest they should only exist as a dead sect, having the form of religion without the power. And this undoubtedly will be the case unless they hold fast both the doctrine, spirit, and discipline with which they first set out." -- John Wesley From the journals of John Wesley: "Sunday a.m., May 5 -Preached in St. Ann's; was asked not to come back any more.
