“Let us not glide through this world and then slip quietly into heaven, without having blown the trumpet loud and long for our Redeemer, Jesus Christ. Let us see to it that the devil will hold a thanksgiving service in hell, when he gets the news of our departure from the field of battle.”~~C.T. Studd

“I consider covetousness as the most generally prevailing and ensnaring sin, by which professors of the gospel, in our materialistic society, are hindered in their spiritual progress. A disposition deeply rooted in our fallen nature, strengthened by the custom of all around us, the power of habit, and the fascinating charm of wealth, is not easily counteracted.” ~~John Newton
“Whenever the true message of the cross is abolished, the anger of hypocrites and heretics eases and all things are in peace. This is a sure token that the devil is guarding the entry of that house, and that the pure doctrine of God’s Word has been taken away. The church, then, is in the BEST state, when Satan assaileth it on every side, both with subtle sleights, and outright violence. And (likewise) it is in the WORST state when it is most at peace.”~~Martin Luther
