John MacArthur Quotes

Wise statements from Pastor John MacArthur!

“The source of most of the problems people have in their Christian lives  relates to two things: either they are not worshiping six days a week with their  life, or they are not worshiping one day a week with the assembly of the saints.  We need both.”

“What does the Holy Spirit do in the World?  Well, He convicts of sin,  righteousness and judgment.”

“How do you evangelize people?  You lead them to the Holy  Scripture.”

John Piper Quotes

God has never done anything that should legitimately cause anger in any of His children. We are never warranted in getting angry at God. Ever. It happens. And we should admit it, and tremble, and repent, and turn back to humble trust in His sovereign goodness.

 

All understandings of all things that do not take God into consideration are superficial understandings, since they do not reckon with the true deepest connections with all things with what really matters in the universe, namely God. We today in America can scarcely begin to feel how God-ignoring we have become because it is the very air we breathe. We breathe God-ignoring air.

 

The assurance of the believer is not that God will save him even if he stops believing, but that God will keep him believing–God will sustain you in faith, he will make your hope firm and stable to the end. He will cause you to persevere.

Great Quotes from Voddie Baucham

“It is impossible to separate one’s view of God, man, truth, knowledge, and ethics from the educational process. Every day that our children sit behind a desk, they are either being taught to know, love, and obey God or they are being taught to love and obey someone or something that has usurped God’s proper role.” ~ Voddie Baucham

 

“If parents have raised their children to be great doctors, lawyers, athletes, or musicians, but have not trained them to honor them and obey God, they have failed.” ~ Voddie Baucham

 

“‘The Lord told me’ is no substitute for ‘the Bible says.'” ~ Voddie Baucham

Spurgeon Quote

“But God’s firm foundation stands . . .” 2 Timothy 2:19

The foundation upon which our faith rests is that “Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them” (2 Corinthians 5:19). The great facts on which genuine faith relies is, that “the Word became flesh and dwelt among us” (John 1:14), that “for Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God” (1 Peter 3:18), and that “he himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.” (1 Peter 2:24).

In one word, the great pillar of the Christian’s hope is substitution. The vicarious sacrifice of Christ for the guilty, Christ being made sin for us that we might be made the righteousness of God in him, Christ offering up a true and proper expiatory and substitutionary sacrifice in the room, place, and stead of as many as the Father gave him, who are known to God by name, and are recognized in their own hearts by their trusting in Jesus—this is the cardinal fact of the gospel. If this foundation were removed, what could we do? But it stands firm as the throne of God.

We know it, we rest on it, we rejoice in it, and our delight is to hold it, to meditate upon it, and to proclaim it while we desire to be actuated and moved by gratitude for it in every part of our life and conversation.

In these days a direct attack is made upon the doctrine of the atonement. Men cannot bear substitution. They gnash their teeth at the thought of the Lamb of God bearing the sin of man.

But we, who know by experience the preciousness of this truth, will proclaim it in defiance of them confidently and unceasingly. We will neither dilute it nor change it, nor fritter it away in any shape or fashion. It shall still be Christ, a positive substitute, bearing human guilt and suffering in the stead of men. We cannot, dare not, give it up, for it is our life, and despite every controversy we feel that “God’s firm foundation stands.”

~ Charles Spurgeon

A dog barks when his master is attacked. I would be a coward if I saw that  God’s truth is attacked and yet would remain silent.

-John Calvin

 

If you believe what you like in the gospels, and reject what you don’t like,  it is not the gospel you believe, but yourself.
