7 Waymark quotes

Some quotes that appeared in The Baptist Waymark periodical in 1996 and 1997.

"In matters of religion, it is correct to act upon the principle that whatever is not taught in the Scriptures is forbidden. That other principle that teaches that we may do a thing because it is not forbidden opens up the floodgates of error." -- Lewis Holland; Texas Baptist and Herald, December 26, 1895

"Where the spectacular element in public soul-winning is eliminated, there is but little opportunity to count supposed results, and the test of conversion is taken wholly out of the sphere of profession and made to rest on the reality of a changed life afterwards." -- Lewis S. Chafer

“The Holy Scriptures alone comprise the court of highest appeal.” -- Balthasar Hubmaier

“Let all the foreign tongues alone, Till you can read and spell your own.” -- Isaac Watts

“The greatest criminals are religious criminals.” -- J. B. Moody

“The gospel preacher is not a ‘spiritual obstetrician’ appointed to supervise the new birth of sinners.” -- Iain Murray

“We may value many things in life. I value my family, my material possessions and my physical life itself. But the thing or aspect of me that has the most value is the eternal, God-given soul. Jesus asked the question ‘For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” (Matthew 16:26). -- Adrian Neal
