The Bible is the only textbook, 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 the only textbook whose author is present every time it is studied.” -- S. Franklin Logsdon and others, in different variations

“Preservation without inspiration is as dead as a frog in formaldehyde or a mummy in a casket.” -- George Antonios

“Worship is acknowledging or recognizing God for Who he is according to his Word and giving him what he says that he wants.” -- Kent Brandenburg

“...Paul knew which conflicts mattered. He told Timothy to ‘fight the good fight of faith’. Fight not the petty, unimportant, cheap fights but the ultimate, eternal battles. Choose wisely the things over which you are willing to lose deep friendships. Think long and hard before you type up that tirade or social media screed.” -- Daniel Darling

“Too much sugar-coated preaching leads to truth decay.” -- Heard

“Our form of government works well if those being governed behave themselves as though they don’t need a government to keep them in line.” -- Unknown

“Democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have, in general, been as short in their lives as they are violent in their deaths.” -- James Madison

Asked by a woman what kind of government had been decided upon — a republic or a monarchy — Franklin replied, “A republic, Madam, if you can keep it.”

“Hold fast to the Bible as the sheet-anchor of your liberties; write its precepts in your hearts, and practice them in your lives.” -- Ulysses S. Grant
