"No Christian has ever been known to recant on his death bed."
C. M. Ward
"Evangelical faith without Christian ethics is a travesty on the gospel."
"It is not difficult to get away into retirement; and there live upon your own convictions; nor is it difficult to mix with men and follow their convictions; but to enter into the world; and there live firmly and fearlessly according to your own conscience; that is Christian greatness." Author Unknown
"No man or woman has achieved an effective personality who is not self-disciplined. Such discipline must not be an end in itself, but must be directed to the development of resolute Christian character."
"We have fought this fight as long, and as well as we know how. We have been defeated. For us as a Christian people, there is now but one course to pursue. We must accept the situation." Robert E. Lee

"The doctrine of blind obedience and unqualified submission to any human power, whether civil or ecclesiastical, is the doctrine of despotism, and ought to have no place among Republicans and Christians."
"Our business is to present the Christian faith clothed in modern terms, not to propagate modern thought clothed in Christian terms. Confusion here is fatal." J. I. Packer
"Going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than going to the garage makes you a car." Dr. Laurence J. Peter
"The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult and left untried." Gilbert Keith Chesterton
"Being filled with the Holy Spirit, then, is a matter of obedience to the Word of God. The filling of the Spirit that all experienced at Pentecost was a matter of a promise being fulfilled. Today, the believer is to be filled in obedience to the command of Ephesians 5:18, continuously, not merely by a single, crisis experience. The Christian life is a growth process toward maturity." Clarence Cramer
"God never built a Christian strong enough to carry today's duties and tomorrow's anxieties piled on top of them." Theodore Ledyard Cuyler
"The most eloquent prayer is the prayer through hands that heal and bless. The highest form of worship is the worship of unselfish Christian service. The greatest form of praise is the sound of consecrated feet seeking out the lost and helpless." Billy Graham
"Most of us have been taught about the need to appropriate by faith what is already ours through grace. We all desire to have more joy in our Christian life. The keys to experiencing joy are available to all of us. We need to understand the gospel of the grace of God as revealed to the Apostle Paul. Then as we put Paul's instructions into practice, we will come to know God experientially. This will cause us to know Him better which will cause us to want to obey more, and on and on it goes. Then as we learn and obey God and become focused on spiritual things instead of earthly things, we will become thankful for everything that God has provided for us in Christ. Knowledge, obedience, and thankfulness will then lead to abundant joy in our everyday life! In the words of the old hymn: Trust and obey, For there's no other way, To be happy in Jesus, But to trust and obey." David Havard
"Christians rejoice because God is their heavenly Father who forgives the penitent, because God sent his Son into the world for the salvation of all who have faith, because Jesus Christ not only died but was raised again from the dead and because joy is one of the ninefold fruits of the Spirit."
"The Christian ministry is the worst of all trades, but the best of all professions." Sir Isaac Newton
