A snake swallowing a squirrel, and other quotes

The posting of quotes by human authors does not constitute agreement with either the quotes or their sources.

"The free willers admit that God has all power, and knows everything, so even if He did not predestinate the acts of man, He remains (as far as we can see) 'accessory' to them. A snake swallowing a squirrel will try not swallow the tail, but swallowed it must be, and they must swallow the fact that God is the first cause and last end of all things whatsoever." -- John Gordon Crowley

"Theology is simply that part of religion that requires brains." -- G. K. Chesterton

"Once you go astray in your doctrine, you will very soon go astray in your behavior. You can’t divorce doctrine from behavior." -- Martyn Lloyd-Jones

"All who are taught and have learned will come to the Lord Jesus Christ. The same way it is with the man who has just learned he is drowning. When the lifeguard appears, the drowning man will not resist him but welcome him with great urgency and open arms." -- Dennis Lee Dabney

"History is more complicated than most of us want to accept, but it is also this: unchangeable." -- Doug Hibbard

"That very church which the world likes best is sure to be that which God abhors." -- Charles Spurgeon

"The Truth of the matter is this, before [the demoniac of Gadara] saw the Lord Jesus from afar, the Lord Jesus had already seen him from afar off, even from the other side of the Sea." -- Dennis Lee Dabney
