Quotable Quotes--New Ones!

“Truth is incontrovertible. Panic may resent it; ignorance may deride it; malice may distort it; but there it is.” (Winston Churchill) 

“Time will tell...the truth. Eventually. Always.” (Trevor Grant Thomas)

“The tyranny of Big Government is far worse than the sins of free men.” (Trevor Grant Thomas) 

“Those who will not be governed by God will be ruled by tyrants.” (William Penn)

As political philosophy derives its sanction from ethics, and ethics from the truth of religion, it is only by returning to the eternal source of truth that we can hope for any social organization which will not, to its ultimate destruction, ignore some essential aspect of reality. The term “democracy,” as I have said again and again, does not contain enough positive content to stand alone against the forces that you dislike—it can easily be transformed by them. If you will not have God (and He is a jealous God) you should pay your respects to Hitler or Stalin.” (T.S. Eliot) 

“The most flagrant hypocrisy of the Left is their denunciation of God while fervently wishing to be Him.” (Unknown)

“Today's Democrat Party is led almost exclusively by corrupt individuals who are beholden to an evil agenda. They are on the wrong side of the truth on most every issue. Do not fear their tactics, and certainly do not yield to their cause.” (Trevor Grant Thomas)

“The real goal of cancel culture: The Left gets to lie about us. We can't tell the truth about them.” (Rep. Jim Jordan)

“That government is best which governs least.” (Unknown, Though used in Henry David Thoreau's Civil Disobedience) 

“Something isn't wrong because it's illegal. It's illegal because it's wrong.” (George Jonas) 

“Republicans cannot be trusted to do the right thing. Democrats can be trusted almost always to do the wrong thing.” (Marvin Olasky) 

“It is far better to 'legislate morality' than it is to legislate immorality.” (Trevor Grant Thomas)

Scriptural teaching is clear: God intends government to use law to enforce morality .” (Greg Koukl)

If the church doesn’t stand in the gap giving moral substance to the words “good” and “evil,” then nothing prevents political leadership from reversing the definitions, praising evil and punishing good.” (Greg Koukl)

Laws begin by imposing norms of conduct, but conclude by teaching morality and values. As these values are inculcated, the coercive power of law recedes as its moral force rises to govern the conduct of the people.(David Lewellyn)

A sound moral code — one that’s consonant with the internal capacity for moral development that God has given each person (Rom. 2:15) — tutors us by adding clarity to our innate sense of right and wrong .(Greg Koukl)

“Bad laws corrupt good morals.(Greg Koukl) 

“The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.” (James Madison) 

“It is no act of charity to be generous with someone else's money.” (Trevor Grant Thomas) 

“A person will worship something, have no doubt about that…That which dominates our imaginations and our thoughts will determine our lives, and our character. Therefore, it behooves us to be careful what we worship, for what we are worshipping we are becoming.” (Emerson) 

“An open mind, in questions that are not ultimate, is useful. But an open mind about the ultimate foundations either of Theoretical or of Practical Reason is idiocy.” (C.S. Lewis) 

When a man stops believing in God, he doesn’t believe in nothing, he believes in anything.” (G.K. Chesterton)

Tolerance is a virtue of a man without convictions.” (G.K. Chesterton)

One of the most cowardly things ordinary people do is to shut their eyes to facts.” (C.S. Lewis)

“Truth makes the Devil blush.” (Thomas Fuller)

“Repentance is a characteristic of the whole life, not the action of a single moment.” (Sinclair Ferguson)

“Nothing is more rational than to believe God even in the face of evidence to the contrary. When God says something, it is irrational to trust our own opinions.” (James Montgomery Boice)

“Remember, professionals built the Titanic, but an amateur built the Ark.” (Unknown)

Those who want to win the world for Christ must have the courage to come into conflict with it.” (Titus Brandsma--martyred at Dachau under Hitler)

“One of the greatest acts of love is to speak uncomfortable truths to those who don't want to hear them.” (Trevor Grant Thomas) 

“The greatest kindness one can render to any man consists in leading him from error to truth.(Thomas Aquinas) 

“If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.” (George Orwell)

“Faith Acts.” (James Montgomery Boice)

“Faith begins with obedience. Faith ends with obedience. It is a matter of obedience from the very first time to the very last, until we appear before God and see him face to face.” (James Montgomery Boice)  

“If our greatest need had been information, God would have sent us an educator. If our greatest need had been technology, God would have sent us a scientist. If our greatest need had been money, God would have sent us an economist. If our greatest need had been pleasure, God would have sent us an entertainer. But our greatest need was forgiveness, so God sent us a Savior.” (Charles Sell) 

“All roads lead to God, but only one road leads to heaven.” (Greg Laurie)

It is misleading to say that God accepts us the way we are. Rather he accepts us despite the way we are. He receives us only in Christ and for Christ's sake. Nor does He mean to leave us the way He found us, but to transform us into the likeness of His Son. Without that transformation and new conformity of life we do not have any evidence that we were ever His in the first place.” (Dr. Sinclair Ferguson)

“Men are qualified for civil liberty in exact proportion to their disposition to put moral chains upon their appetites…Society cannot exist unless a controlling power upon will and appetite be placed somewhere, and the less of it there is within, the more there must be without. It is ordained in the eternal constitution of things, that men of intemperate minds cannot be free.” (Edmund Burke) 

“The ministry of God—feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, healing the sick—should never be separated from the message of God—to repent of our sin and believe that Jesus was who He claimed to be: the Son of God and the savior of the world. The ministry of God and the message of God—both together complete the mission of God.” (Trevor Grant Thomas) 

“If you were put on trial for being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you?” (Unknown) 

“Christianity is not just a series of truths but Truth--Truth about all of reality.” (Francis Schaeffer)

“A Christianity without a passion to turn the world upside down is not reflective of apostolic Christianity.” (Carl F.H. Henry)

Yes, people will tell us they believe in a 'God of love.' But they are self-deceived, and their lives reveal it. They neither love Him with heart, soul, mind, and strength in return, nor do they worship Him with zeal and energy. The truth is that their mantra 'My God is a God of love' is a smokescreen, a phantasm of their imagination. Underneath it all is a deep mistrust of God—otherwise, why not yield the whole of life in joyful abandon to whatever He says or asks?(Dr. Sinclair Ferguson)

“A lot of people think that Christianity is you doing all the righteous things you hate and avoiding all the wicked things you love in order to go to Heaven. No, that's a lost man with religion. A Christian is a person who's heart has been changed: they have new affections.” (Paul Washer)

“He who is not angry when there is just cause for anger is immoral. Why? Because anger looks to the good of justice.  And if you can live amid injustice without anger, you are immoral as well as unjust. (Thomas Aquinas)

“Both in Old Testament and New Testament thought there is but one sure foundation for a lasting civilization, and its cornerstone is a vital knowledge of the redemptive God. In both eras it is wrong to worship false gods, to murder, to commit adultery, and for a reason more ultimate than that the prophet Moses said so. These deeds were wrong before Moses, yea even before Adam; they have been wrong always, and will be wrong always, because they are antagonistic to the character and will of the sovereign God of the universe.” (Carl F.H. Henry)

“The universe is put together on moral lines; any attempt to build a civilization on other lines, whether before or after the coming of Jesus Christ into the world, foredooms itself.” (Carl F.H. Henry)

“The gospel of Christ cuts across all human distinctions, and He is the lone Lord of humanity, with the only adequate relief for man's needs.” (Carl F.H. Henry)

Four questions everyone must ask themselves: “Where did I come from? What's wrong with the world? Is there a solution? What is my purpose?” (Chuck Colson) 

“There are only two kinds of people in the end: those who say to God, 'Thy will be done,' and those to whom God says, in the end, 'Thy will be done.' All that are in Hell choose [the latter].” (C.S. Lewis) 

“Conscience, Christ, and the gift of faith make evil men uneasy in their sin. They feel that if they could drive Christ from the earth, they would be free from 'moral inhibitions.' They forget that it is their own nature and conscience which makes them feel that way. Being unable to drive God from the heavens, they would drive his ambassadors from the earth. In a lesser sphere, that is why many men sneer at virtue--because it makes vice uncomfortable.” (Fulton Sheen)

“One thing you can almost always rely on with those who have been corrupted by evil: they are easily undone by their 'friends'” (Trevor Grant Thomas) 

“Immorality is expensive--in more ways than one!” (Trevor Grant Thomas)

“I am much afraid that schools will prove to be the great gates of hell unless they diligently labor in explaining the Holy Scriptures, engraving them in the hearts of youth. I advise no one to place his child where the scriptures do not reign paramount.” (Martin Luther)

“Education without the proper values, as useful as it may appear, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.” (Unknown, a similar version is sometimes credited to C.S. Lewis)

“Teachers of any subject need to understand that we all teach a theology, because when you teach a subject matter in a way that God is irrelevant, you are teaching a theology. And the Christian theology is precisely that God is not irrelevant to anything.” (Dallas Willard)

“The existence of truth is self-evident. For whoever denies the existence of truth grants that truth does not exist: and, if truth does not exist, then the proposition 'Truth does not exist' is true: and if there is anything true, there must be truth.” (St. Thomas Aquinas)

“During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.” (George Orwell)

“Immigration without assimilation is an invasion.” (Bobby Jindal)

“Don't 'be yourself,' or 'be whoever you are,' or 'be true to yourself,' or any other such nonsense contrived by the wisdom of men. Rather, be who you were created to be.” (Trevor Grant Thomas)

“How can the 'Dream' survive if we murder the children? Every aborted baby is like a slave in the womb of his or her mother. The mother decides his or her fate.” (Dr. Alveda King--MLK's neice)

“There is no 'war on women.' The war is on their babies.” (Dr. Ben Carson)

“If the unborn is not a human person, no justification for abortion is necessary. However, if the unborn is a human person, no justification for abortion is adequate.” (Greg Koukl)

“The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist.” (Verbal Kint--The Usual Suspects)

“Indeed, the safest road to Hell is the gradual one--the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts.” (Screwtape to his demon protege Wormwood--The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis)

“'You don't need locks for a prison, only prisoners.' Seems to me an apt description of hell.” (Trevor Grant Thomas and NBC's Life (TV show, Season 2, episode 4))

“The documents say what they say and cannot be added to.” (Screwtape to his demon protege Wormwood--The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis)

“What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.” (A.W. Tozer)

“The weakness of so many modern Christians is that they fell too much at home in the world.” (A.W. Tozer)

“Rules for Self Discovery:
1. What we want most;
2. What we think about most;
3. How we use our money;
4. What we do with our leisure time;
5. The company we enjoy;
6. Who and what we admire;
7. What we laugh at.” (A.W. Tozer)
8. What offends us. (Trevor Grant Thomas)

“The rule for all of us is perfectly simple. Do not waste time bothering whether you 'love' your neighbor; act as if you did. As soon as we do this we find one of the great secrets. When you are behaving as if you loved someone, you will presently come to love him.” (C.S. Lewis)

“According to Christian teachers, the essential vice, the utmost evil, is Pride. Unchastity, anger, greed, drunkenness, and all that, are mere fleabites in comparison; it was through Pride that the devil became the devil; Pride leads to every other vice; it is the complete anti-God state of mind.” (C.S. Lewis)

“If you tolerate homosexuality, you're tolerating sin. If you tolerate sin, you're rejecting God, for God does not tolerate sin.” (Trevor Grant Thomas)

“It is no act of love to tolerate sin.” (Trevor Grant Thomas)

“Which is love: telling the truth or tolerating sin?” (Trevor Grant Thomas)

“A large number--if not the majority--of conditions that the mental health professionals treat as 'illnesses' or 'disorders' are simply undesirable character traits. When the APA excluded homosexuality from its list of psychiatric disorders, it did nothing more than shift from the column headed 'undesirable' to the column headed 'not undesirable.'” (Dr. Jeffrey Satinover)

“As we have seen in the case of homosexuality, for all the public fanfare, science has accomplished almost nothing we did not know from common sense: One's character traits are in part innate but are subject to modification by experience and choice.” (Dr. Jeffrey Satinover)

“Ultimately, any rootedness of homosexuality in nature does not remove it one whit from the domain of moral choice. In its genetic, familial, or psychological influences, homosexual impulses and behavior are no different than the many other natural behaviors that God, in spite of their naturalness, calls sin.” (Dr. Jeffrey Satinover)

Why is it considered acceptable to carve up a person’s body to match their inner sense of self but bigoted to help them change their sense of self to match their body? Feelings can change. But the body is an observable fact that does not change. It makes sense to treat it as a reliable marker of sexual identity.” (Nancy Pearcey)

“Marriage is the oldest institution in the history of humanity--older than God's covenant with the nation of Israel, older than The Law, older than the church. Marriage is one of the earliest truths revealed by God. If ANYTHING is true, marriage as the union of one man and one woman is true. On this, there can NEVER be compromise.” (Trevor Grant Thomas)

“After our relationship with our Creator, the most important relationship in the universe is the relationship between a husband and wife.” (Trevor Grant Thomas)

“When it comes to a 'culture of rape,' liberals bemoan what they helped to create.” (Trevor Grant Thomas)

“If a women dresses and acts like a prostitute, she should not be surprised when she finds immoral men who are willing to treat her as such.” (Trevor Grant Thomas)

“[T]o be skeptical of the resultant text of the New Testament books is to allow all of classical antiquity to slip into obscurity, for no documents of the ancient period are as well attested bibliographically as the New Testament.” (John Warwick Montgomery)

“It cannot be too strongly asserted that in substance the text of the Bible is certain: Especially is this the case with the New Testament. The number of manuscripts of the New Testament, of early translations from it, and of quotations from it in the oldest writers of the Church, is so large that it is practically certain that the true reading of every doubtful passage is preserved in some one or other of these ancient authorities. This can be said of no other ancient book in the world.” (Sir Frederic Kenyon)

“The Bible has always been regarded as part of the Common Law of England.” (Sir William Blackstone from his Commentaries on the Laws of England)

“There is a Book worth all other books which were ever printed.” (Patrick Henry) 

First one starts questioning, based on what the world around us is saying, then one looks at Scripture, then theology, then scientific study—until finally what the Scriptures teach is completely subjected to whatever view is currently accepted by the world.” (Francis Schaeffer)

“Who decides what is right and wrong in the world? Who has the authority to define morality for all of creation? It is not the courts, congress, the media, public opinion, the 'politically correct' police, the 'tolerance' brigade or even the church. The only answer has been, is and always will be Jesus Christ. You can find His opinion on a great variety of subjects in His best seller... The Bible.” (Jeffrey E. Ramey)

“The word of God hidden in the heart is a stubborn voice to suppress.” (Billy Graham)

“The Bible is the written word of God, and because it is written it is confined and limited by the necessities of ink and paper and leather. The Voice of God, however, is alive and free as the sovereign God is free. 'The words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.' The life is in the speaking words. God's word in the Bible can have power only because it corresponds to God's Word in the universe. It is the present Voice which makes the written word powerful. Otherwise it would lie locked in slumber within the covers of a book. ” (A. W. Tozer)

“Where the church is found, the Word of God is honored, preached, taught, cherished, obeyed, and believed.” (Al Mohler) 

“The Bible is a wonderful book. It is the truth about the Truth. It is not the Truth. A sermon taken from the Bible can be a wonderful thing to hear. It is the truth about the truth about the truth. But it is not the truth. There have been many books written about the things contained in the Bible. I have written some myself. They can be quite wonderful to read. They are the truth about the truth about truth about the Truth. But they are NOT the Truth. Only Jesus Christ is the Truth. Sometimes the Truth can be drowned in a multitude of words. ” (Richard Wurmbrand)
