I heard Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, and other quotes

The posting of quotes by human authors does not constitute agreement with either the quotes or their sources. (I try to confirm the sources that I give, but may miss on occasion; please verify if possible.)

"I heard Donald Trump describing a country I don’t recognize, and I heard Hillary Clinton writing checks we can’t possibly cash." -- Gary Johnson

"There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other." -- John Adams

"The words of Jesus on the cross, ‘it is finished’ (John 19:30) capture the theology of Hebrews." -- Thomas R. Schreiner

"Separation from the world is the grand distinguishing mark of vital godliness." -- J. C. Philpot

"I believe it might be accepted as a fairly reliable rule of thumb that the man who is ambitious to lead is disqualified as a leader." -- Aiden Wilson Tozer

"Many Christians estimate difficulties in the light of their own resources, and thus attempt little and often fail in the little they attempt. All God's giants have been weak men who did great things for God because they reckoned on His power and presence with them." -- J. Hudson Taylor

"A time will come when instead of shepherds feeding the sheep, the church will have clowns entertaining the goats." -- Charles H. Spurgeon

"Heresy of method may be as deadly as heresy of message." -- A. W. Tozer 

"The great heresy of the church today is that we think we’re in the entertainment business."  -- Mike Livingstone

"We believe if men are worthy and called of God, God will impress his people with the needs of his servants and make the necessary provision or, in other words, simple faith in God." -- George W. Orser

"To baptize before that which is required for baptism, namely faith, is found is as if one would place the cart before the horse, to sow before plowing, to build before the lumber is at hand, or to seal the letter before it is written." -- MennoSimons (415b; II:211b)

"I remind you that there are churches so completely out of the hands of God that if the Holy Spirit withdrew from them, they wouldn't find it out for many months." -- A. W. Tozer, The Tozer Pulpit [Often cited this way, but I haven't found an original source for it: "If the Holy Spirit was withdrawn from the church today, 95 percent of what we do would go on and no one would know the difference. If the Holy spirit had been withdrawn from the New Testament church, 95 percent of what they did would stop, and everybody would know the difference."]

"The king was dead. But Isaiah...saw another king, the Ultimate King, the One who sat forever on the throne of Judah." -- R. C. Sproul
