Quotes of Note:

Only the dead have seen the end of war

George Santayana (1863-1952) - 20th Century American Philosopher


Extreme or consistent (as they like to call themselves) preterism
believes that the Second Coming, and thus the resurrection of believers,
is all past. For all practical purposes all Bible prophecy has been
fulfilled, and we are beyond the millennium and even now in the new
heaven and new earth.

by Stanley D. Toussaint


To do common things perfectly is far better worth our endeavor than to do uncommon things respectably.

Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811-1896)


The command of God is our sole standard. Conscience itself is not a trustworthy rule. If a man's conscience be unenlightened, he may be sinning, and reaping the ill consequences of his sin, not less surely because he is not conscious that his misfortunes are due to his folly rather than his fate. His conscience cannot be the standard. The standard is the law of God. Brother, I would not have thee live in daily neglect of a divine command which I am persuaded thou wouldest obey if thou didst know it. Hide not thyself behind a pillar, but come into the light, and take the word and read it, and always ask that God would be pleased to open your eyes to anything there you have not hitherto seen.

A Clear Conscience - Psa. 119:6


from The Gates of Hell by R.A. Perry, pg. 109

"Deric, look at that statue." She pointed to a statue depicting the accomplishments of man. A naked athlete stood on the clouds thrusting a javelin to the heavens by his strength. You could tell it had reached the cosmos by the stars beneath the point of the thrust. "It's supposed to depict the accomplishing of our dreams of the supernatural, by the achievements of the physical. I've bought into that rubbish my whole life. Now I sit here totally empty."


When we turn to the other New Testament data concerning the life of Jesus, we see that some actions are clearly those of a superhuman power, while others can be only attributed to a truly human power.

(from The Christian Life by Dallas M. Roark)


If you want want to get "Well Done" you got to stay on the fire - Bro. Jerry Dean


"Eternity and time differ as the sea and rivers; the sea never changes place, and is always one water; but the rivers glide along, and are swallowed up in the sea; so is time by eternity."

~ Stephen Charnock - The Existence and Attributes of God, pg. 280


from Thomas Paine in The American Crisis:

"These are the times that try men’s souls. the summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands it NOW, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.

Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.

What we obtain too cheaply, we esteem too lightly; ’tis dearness only that gives everything its value. Heaven knows how to put a price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated."
