Some great quotes sent to me today

“If the doctrine of Christian union is true, then
division and sectarianism are a great and prodigious evil, and therefore ought
to be abolished. Who then will lay the axe to the root of this corrupt tree to
help cut it down?”

-D.S. Warner

“If I profess with the loudest voice and clearest
exposition every portion of the truth of God except precisely that point which
the world and the devil are at that moment attacking, I am not confessing
Christ, however boldly I may be professing Christ. Where the battle rages,
there the loyalty of the soldier is proved, and to be steady on all the
battlefield besides, is mere flight and disgrace if he flinches at that
point.”

– Martin Luther

“One man with God is always in the majority.”

– John Knox

“If rich men only knew when they died, how . . .

their relatives would scramble for their money, the worms
for their bodies, and the devil for their souls, they would not be so anxious
to save money!”

– William Tiptaft

AND MY PERSONAL FAVOURITE FOR TODAY:

“I will not judge a person to be spiritually dead
whom I have judged formerly to have had spiritual life, though I see him at
present in a swoon (faint) as to all evidences of the spiritual life. And the
reason why I will not judge him so is this — because if you judge a person
dead, you neglect him, you leave him; but if you judge him in a swoon (faint)
though never so dangerous, you use all means for the retrieving of his
life.”

– John Owen
