The open communion Baptist, 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.)

"And the open communion Baptist, who, in his own case, preserves the divine succession of first discipleship, and then baptism, when he joins or presides over a mixed communion church, destroys what he has thus built up, and makes himself a transgressor..." -- J. C. Philpot

"When a pastor preaches God’s word he has all the authority of heaven backing him. When he delves into his own opinions, be it in earthly or doctrinal matters, he has no authority whatsoever." -- Mark Osgatharp

"They are to shun evil in whatever form or appearance it may present itself." -- D. Edmond Hiebert

"We should abstain from sin, and whatever looks like sin, leads to it, and borders upon it." -- Matthew Henry

"One truth that is seldom if ever heard preached by modern day mud daubers (see Ezekiel 13:8-12) is the fact that the LORD is pleased to, actively, hide the truth from some while, just as actively, revealing it to others." -- Mike McInnis

"There’s a time to pray and a time to obey." -- Harold Sala

"There’s just one insight I would dare to claim: I know that true and false are not the same." -- Molière (in the play Tartuffe, 1664)

"‘I will strengthen that which was sick.’ Ezekiel 34:16. Peculiar maladies require peculiar remedies; but here is a general remedy, a family medicine. The Lord not only has strong remedies for desperate diseases; but in the divine medicine chest he has his restoratives and cordials." -- J. C. Philpot (1802 - 1869)

"If you worry that you might not be a Christian -- you probably are." -- Heard

"He who binds to himself a joy
Does the winged life destroy;
But he who kisses the joy as it flies
Lives in eternity’s sun rise."
Eternity by William Blake (1757 - 1827)

"If you put the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in 5 years there’d be a shortage of sand." -- Milton Friedman
