I don’t buy into the narrative, 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.)

"I don’t buy into the narrative at all that Jesus never critiqued individuals...Jesus called Herod a fox, Peter the devil and he was hardly complementary about the ‘prophetess’ Jezebel in the church in Thyatira." -- David Robertson

"The line between good and evil doesn’t run between groups but right through every human heart." -- Mark Ward

"Compromise is necessary in the political world. In the spiritual world compromise is lethal." -- Robert Jeffress

"If Baptist people would bow in humiliation and wash each others’ feet they would be less likely at each others’ throats!" -- Unknown

"If legislators know they will be forced to return home to live under the laws they pass, they will arguably be much less likely to advocate for repressive and unreasonable laws." -- Lyle Larson

"When you leave somewhere because you have a discontented spirit, you take that spirit with you when you go." -- Matt Bell

"Congregations are lifeless because dead men preach to them." -- George Whitefield

"A corrupt stock produced a corrupt offspring." -- Canons of Dordt

"In government, the scum rises to the top." -- Friedrich Hayek

"The depravity of the human heart is at once the most empirically verifiable fact and at the same time the most intellectually resisted." -- Malcolm Muggeridge

"Isn't it time to stop asking the LORD to bless what we are doing, and start doing what HE has [blessed] and is blessing?" - Billy Wright, Jr.

"God needs no defense. Those teachers who are forever trying to make God over in their own image might better be employed in seeking to make themselves over in the image of God." -- A. W. Tozer

"This then is not God, if thou hast comprehended it; but if it be God, thou hast not comprehended it." -- Augustine
