Our relationship, 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.)

"Our relationship with God is not a matter of reward, but of love. And that’s why we can enjoy such staggering freedom in his presence." -- Steve Brown

"Having a good conscience about the text doesn’t require agreement with others; it requires being faithful to pursue truth at all costs to the best of your abilities." -- Daniel B. Wallace

"Measure not God’s love and favour by your own feeling. The sun shines as clearly in the darkest day as it does in the brightest. The difference is not in the sun, but in some clouds which hinder the manifestation of the light thereof." -- Richard Sibbes

"Education is going from an unconscious to a conscious awareness of one's ignorance." -- Usually quoted as "Someone has said"

"A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have." -- often attributed to Thomas Jefferson, but apparently by Gerald R. Ford

"By the cross we know the gravity of sin and the greatness of God’s love toward us." -- John Chrysostom

"There are two classes of preachers, those who make a convenience of truth, and those in whom truth has wrought a conviction." -- Richard V. Clearwaters

“Whenever truth compromises with error it is always truth which has to give up something for error has nothing to give up to begin with." -- Robert T. Ketcham

"The compromise road is a road pockmarked with many tragic pitfalls for those who enter it." -- William E. Ashbrook

"God is completely sovereign. God is infinite in wisdom. God is perfect in love. God in His love always wills what is best for us. In His wisdom He always knows what is best, and in His sovereignty He has the power to bring it about." -- Jerry Bridges

"Consider what you owe to God's immutability. Though you have changed a thousand times, He has not changed once." -- Charles Spurgeon
