"God loves you just the way you are, but He refuses to leave you 
that way." - Max Lucado

"Adversity doesn't build character; it reveals it."
- Anonymous

"I am not permitted to let my love be so merciful as to tolerate and
endure false doctrine. When faith and doctrine are concerned and 
endangered, neither love nor patience are in order.... when these 
are concerned, neither toleration nor mercy are in order, but only 
anger, dispute, and destruction -- to be sure, only with the Word 
of God as our weapon." - Martin Luther.

"To remain divided is sinful! Did not our Lord pray, that they may 
be one, even as we are one"? (John 17:22). A chorus of ecumenical 
voices keep harping the unity tune. What they are saying is, 
"Christians of all doctrinal shades and beliefs must come together 
in one visible organization, regardless... Unite, unite!" Such 
teaching is false, reckless and dangerous. Truth alone must 
determine our alignments. Truth comes before unity. Unity without 
truth is hazardous. Our Lord's prayer in John 17 must be read in 
its full context. Look at verse 17: "Sanctify them through thy truth; 
thy word is truth." Only those sanctified through the Word can be 
one in Christ. To teach otherwise is to betray the Gospel." 
-Charles H. Spurgeon.

"It is our solemn conviction that where there can be no real spiritual
communion there should be no pretence of fellowship. Fellowship 
with known and vital error is participation in sin."  -Charles Spurgeon.

"Showing mercy to the wolf is showing cruelty to the sheep." - Puritan.

"Knowing God without knowing our wretchedness leads to pride.
Knowing our wretchedness without knowing God leads to despair.
Knowing Christ gives the balance." - Blaise Pascal

"Christ always identified Himself with the least, the last, and the
lost." - Unknown

"Let us think often that our only business in this life is to please
God. Perhaps all besides is but folly and vanity."
- Brother Lawrence

"The greatest need we have is not to do things, but to believe 
things." - Oswald Chambers

"When preachers do not call sin, sin, the people begin to wink at 
sin!" - Dr. Micheal Useph

"The secret of Christianity is not asking Jesus into your heart; it is
Jesus' asking us into His."  - Unknown

"Growth is not more knowledge or increase of years; it is simply 
more of Him and less of me. He increases as I decrease. This is 
what it means to be a disciple." - Chip Brogden

"Worldliness is what any particular culture does to make sin look
normal and righteousness look strange." - David Wells

"Some say that faith is the gift of God. So is the air, but you have
to breathe it; so is bread, but you have to eat it. Some are wanting
some miraculous kind of feeling. That is not faith. 'Faith cometh by 
hearing and hearing by the Word of God' (Rom 10:17). That is 
whence faith comes. It is not for me to sit down and wait for faith 
to come stealing over me with a strong sensation, but is for me to 
take God at His Word." - D. L. Moody

"Our Faith must be tested. God builds no ships but what He sends 
to sea." - D.L. Moody

Mr. Spurgeon leaning over the platform of a church where a work 
of grace was going on, heard a penitent below in great distress 
pray earnestly, 'Lord, make a good job of me! Lord, make a good 
job of me!'

"It doesn't take an extraordinary person - just devotion to our
extraordinary God - to live an extraordinary life." - Unknown.
