“The coming days will be 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 NOW, will earn the love, gratefulness and honor of the nation. Future American history books will write–and our children and grandchildren will rise and say–‘This was their finest hour’.”–paraphrase of Thomas Paine’s The American Crisis, read three days before the battle of Trenton to the half-clad, disheartened soldiers on December 23, 1776.
“We do not want, as the newspapers say, a church that will move with the world. We want a church that will move the world”–G.K. Chesterton.
“The most dangerous lie in our culture is the belief that our opinion changes eternal reality. Many people have told me that hell doesn’t exist, but their belief cannot possibly change hell’s existence. They are wagering their eternal destiny on their personal opinion”–Jim Denison.
“There are really no perfect churches in our day. . . . Throughout the world, there are many great churches doing a wonderful work for our Lord, but none are perfect. If you find a perfect church, don’t join it–you’ll ruin it. The church is not a gallery or museum for perfect saints. It is a school for the growth and improvement of imperfect ones”–Ron Herrod.
