It is a mystery, but a great truth, 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.)

"It is a mystery, but a great truth, that just in proportion as we die to the world, to self, to sense, to nature, and to false religion, the more the life of God is strengthened in our conscience...True faith is no more destroyed by sharp trials, than the oak is destroyed by cutting away the ivy, or by a storm blowing down some of its rotten branches." -- J. C. Philpot

"Salvation with all its super-abounding grace is but an empty sound to those who have never felt themselves cut off from all help or all hope." -- J. C. Philpot

"In the churches where the KJV is exclusively used, and where the paper and ink is not expected to do all the communicating, there is one harmonious standard English text in everyone’s hands, in everyone’ s home, in everyone’s heart." -- James Snapp, Jr.

"I will miss the KJV, but not the fanatics who preach more about the king on the cover than the King in the pages." -- Mahlon

"It doesn't matter what you preach or teach, if what you preach or teach doesn't matter." -- Steve Brown

A lady once asked the Bible teacher G. Campbell Morgan, “Should we pray about the little things in our lives, or only the big things?” He replied, “Madam, can you think of anything that isn't little to God?” (I have heard this related by many teachers, but never seen the source.)
