"Love to God is armor of proof against error. For want of hearts full of love, men have heads full of error; unholy opinions are for want of holy affections."
Thomas Watson

Great Christian Works

We are more than conquerors
through him that loved us.

Romans 8:37

"The enemy is behind us.
The enemy is in front of us.
The enemy is to the right
and the left of us.
They can't get away this time!"


General Douglas McArthur

"The Word of God well understood and religiously obeyed is the shortest route to spiritual perfection. And we must not select a few favorite passages to the exclusion of others. Nothing less than a whole Bible can make a whole Christian."
A. W. Tozer

"Brethren, we must preach
the doctrines;
we must emphasize
the doctrines;
we must go back to
the doctrines.

I fear that the new generation does not know the doctrines
as our fathers knew them."

"In the Scriptures there is a portrait of God, but in Christ there is God himself. A coin bears the image of Caesar, but Caesar's son is his own lively resemblance. Christ is the living Bible."

My Jesus, I Love Thee
"I'll love thee in life,
I will love thee in death;
And praise thee as long

And say when the death dew
lies cold on my brow,
If ever I loved thee,
My Jesus tis now."

The old Book and the old faith
Are the Rock on which I stand!

The old Book and the old faith
Are the bulwark of the land!

"Not how much of my money

The School of Christ

By T. Austin Sparks

"We shall find, when we reach the end of life, that all which God has done, however dark and mysterious it may have appeared at the time, was so connected with our good as to make it a proper subject of praise and thanksgiving."
Barnes

"Cowards never won heaven. Do not claim that you are begotten of God and have His royal blood running in your veins unless you can prove your lineage by this heroic spirit: to dare to be holy in spite of men and devils." William Gurnall

"Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: "   Psalm 103:2

"THE QUICKEST WAY
to slay error is to proclaim
the truth. The surest mode of extinguishing falsehood is to boldly advocate Scripture principles.

Scolding and protesting will not be so effectual in resisting the progress of error as the clear proclamation of the
truth in Jesus."

C. H. Spurgeon


A Tribute to our
Men and Women in Uniform.

"Remember that it is not hasty reading, but serious meditation on holy and heavenly truths, which makes them prove sweet and profitable to the soul.
It is not he who reads most, but he who meditates most, who will prove to be the choicest, sweetest, wisest, and strongest Christian."

"Whenever we insist
that God should give us
an answer to prayer
we are off track.
The purpose of prayer
is that we get ahold of God,
not of the answer."
~ Oswald Chambers ~

Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth
will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His
glory and grace.

"According as his divine power
hath given unto us
all things that pertain
unto life and godliness,
through the knowledge of him
that hath called us
to glory and virtue:"

II Peter 1:3

Turn your attention upon yourself
and beware of judging the deeds
of other men, for in judging others
a man labors vainly, often makes mistakes, and easily sins;

Whereas, in judging and taking
stock of himself he does something
that is always profitable.

We frequently judge that things
are as we wish them to be,
for through personal feeling
true perspective is easily lost.

If God were the sole object of
our desire, we should not be
disturbed so easily by
opposition to our opinions.

~ Thomas À Kempis ~

"The Lord gave the word:

Psalm 68:11

A true revival means nothing
less than a revolution,
casting out the spirit

making God's love
triumph in the heart.
