The Quotable Susan

On Scripture:

   “For the word of God is quick and powerful and sharper than a two-edged sword” Hebrews 4:12

“Can a mortal ask questions which God finds unanswerable? Quite easily, I should think.  All nonsense questions are unanswerable.  How many hours are in a mile?  Is yellow round or square?  Probably half the questions we ask –half our great theological and metaphysical problems are like that.”

   -C. S. Lewis from his book “A Grief observed”

“God Himself has condescended to teach me the way.  He has written it down in a book. Oh! Give me that book!  At any price give me the book of God. Let me be a man of one book!”
 -John Wesley

“The Bible is alive; it speaks to me. It has feet; it runs after me. It has hands; it lays hold of me.”
 -Martin Luther

“The most valuable thing we have on earth is not the Hope Diamond or the Mona Lisa, but the Bible you hold in your hand. Blood stained by martyrs and sweat stained by theologians and scholars.”

  -Hayes Winkler

“If you don’t have God’s words rolling around in your head, you will start to believe your own words and that’s dangerous.”

  -Tom Schriener (pastor of Clifton Baptist Church)

“Never forget whether you understand it or not, the Bible is pure truth; given by God, preserved by God, and has no errors in the original language and texts.”

-Kay Arthur

“I will take God at His word and trust Him to prove it to me.”

 -Jim Elliott (as recorded by Elizabeth Elliott in “Through Gates of Splendor”)
