A.W. Tozer
“I can safely say, on the authority of all that is revealed in the Word of God, that any man or woman on this earth who is bored and turned off by worship is not ready for heaven.”
A.W. Tozer

John R.W. Stott
“We must allow the Word of God to confront us, to disturb our security, to undermine our complacency and to overthrow our patterns of thought and behavior.”
John R.W. Stott

R.C. Sproul
“It is fashionable in some academic circles to exercise scholarly criticism of the Bible. In so doing, scholars place themselves above the Bible and seek to correct it. If indeed the Bible is the Word of God, nothing could be more arrogant. It is God who corrects us; we don’t correct Him. We do not stand over God but under Him.”
R.C. Sproul, Five Things Every Christian Needs to Grow

“Quoting from Thomas Merton
Dialogues With Silence
The true contemplative is not one who prepares his mind for a particular message that he wants or expects to hear, but is one who remains empty because he knows that he can never expect to anticipate the words that will transform his darkness into light. He does not even anticipate a special kind of transformation. He does not demand light instead of darkness. He waits on the Word of God in silence, and, when he is answered it is not so much by a word that bursts into his silence. It is by his silence itself, suddenly, inexplicably revealing itself to him as a word of great power, full of the voice of God. (17)”
Stephen Cope, The Wisdom of Yoga: A Seeker's Guide to Extraordinary Living

Charles H. Spurgeon
“Bread is a second cause; the LORD Himself is the first source of our sustenance. He can work without the second cause as well as with it; and we must not tie Him down to one mode of operation. Let us not be too eager after the visible, but let us look to the invisible God.”
Charles H. Spurgeon

Charles H. Spurgeon
“If you cut him, (John Bunyan) he'd bleed Scripture!”
Charles H. Spurgeon

Martin Luther
“The soul can do without everything except the word of God, without which none at all of its wants are provided for.”
Martin Luther, On Christian Liberty

Oswald Chambers
“There have been prophets and students who handle the Bible like a child’s box of bricks; they explain to us the design and structure and purpose; but as time goes on things do not work out in their way at all. They have mistaken the scaffolding for the structure, while all the time God is working out His purpose with a great and undeterred patience.”
Oswald Chambers

Toba Beta
“The word of my lord
is the sword for world.”
Toba Beta, Betelgeuse Incident: Insiden Bait Al-Jauza

Thomas Paine
“The most detestable wickedness, the most horrid cruelties, and the greatest miseries, that have afflicted the human race have had their origin in this thing called revelation, or revealed religion. It has been the most dishonourable belief against the character of the divinity, the most destructive to morality, and the peace and happiness of man, that ever was propagated since man began to exist. It is better, far better, that we admitted, if it were possible, a thousand devils to roam at large, and to preach publicly the doctrine of devils, if there were any such, than that we permitted one such impostor and monster as Moses, Joshua, Samuel, and the Bible prophets, to come with the pretended word of God in his mouth, and have credit among us.

Whence arose all the horrid assassinations of whole nations of men, women, and infants, with which the Bible is filled; and the bloody persecutions, and tortures unto death and religious wars, that since that time have laid Europe in blood and ashes; whence arose they, but from this impious thing called revealed religion, and this monstrous belief that God has spoken to man? The lies of the Bible have been the cause of the one, and the lies of the Testament of the other.”
Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason

Thomas Paine
“Some Christians pretend that Christianity was not established by the sword; but of what period of time do they speak? It was impossible that twelve men could begin with the sword: they had not the power; but no sooner were the professors of Christianity sufficiently powerful to employ the sword than they did so, and the stake and faggot too; and Mahomet could not do it sooner. By the same spirit that Peter cut off the ear of the high priest's servant (if the story be true) he would cut off his head, and the head of his master, had he been able. Besides this, Christianity grounds itself originally upon the [Hebrew] Bible, and the Bible was established altogether by the sword, and that in the worst use of it — not to terrify, but to extirpate. The Jews made no converts: they butchered all. The Bible is the sire of the [New] Testament, and both are called the word of God. The Christians read both books; the ministers preach from both books; and this thing called Christianity is made up of both. It is then false to say that Christianity was not established by the sword.”
Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason

“Despite the huge crowd, He speaks to His disciples as though no one else is there.”
Roma Downey, Son of God

Bernard of Clairvaux
“I have ascended to the highest in me, and look, the Word is towering above that. I have descended to explore my lowest depths, and I found Him deeper still.”
Bernard of Clairvaux

Vance Havner
“Let it never be forgotten that, although we may do nothing about the Word we hear, the Word will do something to us.
The same sun melts ice and hardens clay, and the Word of God humbles or hardens the human heart.”
Vance Havner, Jesus Only

Enock Maregesi
“Vita ya dhambi hupiganwa katika uwanja wa akili na katika uwanja wa mwili kati ya Shetani na Mungu. Hutumia silaha kuu ya uongo na silaha kuu ya ukweli. Mungu anataka tuujue ukweli. Shetani anataka tuujue uongo. Kushinda vita ya dhambi huna budi kutumia neno la Mungu, kama Yesu alivyolitumia kumshinda Shetani wakati akijaribiwa katika Mlima wa Majaribu wa Jangwa la Yuda.”
Enock Maregesi

Gregory of Nyssa
“Just as at sea those who are carried away from the direction of the harbor bring themselves back on course by a clear sign, on seeing a tall beacon light or some mountain peak coming into view, so Scripture may guide those adrift on the sea of the life back into the harbor of the divine will.”
Gregory of Nyssa

“Using a combination of history, common sense, the Word of God and the Spirit of God, every leader can generally predict the way things will go.”
Dag Heward-Mills, The Art of Leadership

“I have noticed over the past three years that most African Christians depend on their pastor or preachers for directions in life than their lecturers, politicians and nurses. That tells why most people refuse certain medical priorities with regards to their pastor's messages. I think if every pastor should have entrepreneurial knowledge coupled with spiritual integrity, Africa will shake!”
Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes

“We want to make certain that we view culture through the eyes of faith, that we don't view our faith through the eyes of culture.”
Stephen D. Livesday

Israelmore Ayivor
“A Bible not read is like a bulb not lighted. Only insane people will love to work in the darkness with Kings' bulbs which are not switched on! ... and so goes the one who has the King James' but does not search into it!”
Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes

“The highest view of the Scriptures is not the one that seeks to make an idol of the Bible (biblicism), but the one that allows the biblical text to exalt Christ as the living Word over all creation. The Word became flesh, not ink.”
David D. Flowers

“When God speaks faith has to connect to His Word because if you allow only your feelings to connect no root can be formed.”
Mz Liz

Israelmore Ayivor
“They may call you "Stupid" because of what you've done in the past. Hey, you are going to be "Prominent" because of what the Lord has done. The stupid "S" in Saul was exchange to become the Prominent "P" in Paul... and you ask why? It's because of what the Lord has done, Give thanks!”
Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes

J.I. Packer
“The Church no more gave us the New Testament canon than Isaac Newton gave us the force of gravity.”
J.I. Packer

“Once again the Scriptures are a lodestar, a benchmark, the plumb line steadies us and steers us clear of what is happening in the world and gives us a glimpse of history and politics, economics and daily experiences from God's point of view. Going back to this mother lode of wisdom and knowledge, inspired by God, brings grace and further insight not found in other devotional materials.”
Megan McKenna, The New Stations of the Cross: The Way of the Cross According to Scripture

“If we are to have real faith, we must study the Word of God and discover what is promised. Then, we must simply believe the promises of God. Trying to believe something that you want to believe is not faith. Believing what God says in His Word is faith.”
R.A Torrey

“If I am to have faith when I pray, I must find some promise in the Word of God to rest my faith on”
R.A Torrey

“He speaks the words of a distant prophet as though He has written the words Himself.”
Roma Downey, Son of God

Israelmore Ayivor
“Don't tell me that I can't do it. Go and tell God that story. After all He is the one who gave me the air to breath and be able to do it well! Go! I believe, I can fly!”
Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes

Hans Urs von Balthasar
“The person who prays and who wants to gain a deeper understanding of the word he desires to worship (in order to be more single-mindedly at the word’s disposal) will select with great care basic works for his studies which will observe the so-called exactitude of scholarship without losing sight of the most important exactitude, namely, the ordering of all thought toward prayer.”
Hans Urs von Balthasar, Prayer
