If you adopt, 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.)

"If you adopt theories which pare off a portion [of the Bible] here, and deny authority to a passage there, you will at last have no inspiration left..." -- Charles H. Spurgeon

"What you gain church members with is what you keep them with. If you win people with the latest and greatest system you will need to continue to have the latest and greatest system. If you win them with the preaching of the Word you will keep them with the preaching of the Word." -- copied

"I have noticed for some decades that evangelical Christians are adept at adopting worldly fashions ten years after the world has done adopted them, and then doing it worse." -- Douglas Wilson

"If one cannot participate in inter-faith dialogue without weakening the cardinal beliefs of one’s own faith, then what you have is not inter-faith dialogue, but inter-doubt dialogue." -- Bart Barber

"“Directional Theology” means that “What a man believes is taking him somewhere”." -- Tom Fillinger

"All through life be sure you put your feet in the right place, and then stand firm." -- attributed to Abraham Lincoln by Rebecca R. Pomroy

"Hope, for the Christian, is not a's a shot of adrenaline!" -- attributed to Warren Wiersbe

Old age. First you dread it. Then you complain about it. Finally you glory in it.
