The Bible is much more, 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.)

"The Bible is much more than God Word's, or God's grammatical constructions or God's pen strokes. It is God's heart!" -- Dave Brunn

"If ye were not Christ's wheat, appointed to be bread in His house, He would not grind you." --  Samuel Rutherford

"The worldly spirit shuts the Bible: the Spirit of God makes it a fire, flaming out all meaning and glorious truth." -- Horace Bushnell

"Either study [the Bible] as removing some obstructions that keep God and thee asunder, or as supplying some uniting power to bring God and thee together." -- Richard Cecil

"My faith has no bed to sleep upon but omnipotence." -- Samuel Rutherford

"Christ is a well of life, but who knoweth how deep it is to the bottom?" -- Samuel Rutherford

"One of the greatest needs that men have as they gain a proper understanding of the truth, (which is set forth in the scriptures) is to “unlearn” those things which they have obtained by their natural understanding." -- Mike McInnis

"God isn’t talking to you.  Stop saying He is.  You sound crazy.  If God was talking to you, you’d likely not be such a horrible Bible teacher." -- Seth Dunn

"A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, 'darkness' on the walls of his cell." -- C. S. Lewis

"Sinners are attractive because they are loved; they are not loved because they are attractive." -- Attributed to Martin Luther

"You can tell how big a problem is by what it takes to fix it. You can tell how big a problem is by how much it costs to fix it." -- Heard

Sitting on my pinnacle,
Looking to and fro;
I wondered where the people were,
And saw them all below.
-- Copied
