Autonomy is not sacrificed, 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 when possible.)

"Ultimately, autonomy is not sacrificed in most Baptist churches because no outside entity can compel them to function in any particular way. That does not mean that any way that a Baptist church chooses to function is biblical." -- R. Vaughn

"A church's autonomy ends where her violation of Scripture begins." -- R. Vaughn

"When man justifies the wicked, it is a miscarriage of justice which God hates, but when God justifies the ungodly it is a miracle of grace for us to adore." -- J. I. Packer

"Holy sexuality is either faithfulness in marriage or chastity in singleness." -- Christopher Yuan

"A man travels the world over in search of what he needs and returns home to find it." -- George A. Moore

"By ‘Baptist,’ all we mean is shorthand for biblical truth and for the New Testament church." -- Adam Greenway

"Given an open Bible, a regenerate heart, and an unprejudiced mind, the inevitable result is a Baptist." -- A. T. Robertson

As we cannot be Baptists without the Bible, we must know personally for ourselves, what order of obedience it requires at our hands." -- Thomas Armitage

"For every one book which is published on repentance and mortification there are a hundred which attempt to promote ‘church growth’ or else point the believer along the road to ‘success’." -- Maurice Roberts

"It is better to train ten men to do the work than to do the work of ten men." -- sometimes credited to D. L. Moody

"None can run this race but the saints of God, for the ground itself is holy ground, of which we read that "no unclean beast is to be found therein." None but the redeemed walk there; and none have ever won the prize but those who have run this heavenly race as redeemed by precious blood." -- J. C. Philpot
