" The only rose without
thorns is the rose
" Do all the good you can,
by all the means you can,
in all the ways you can,
in all the places you can,
at all the times you can,
to all the people you can,
as long as ever you can."
~~~ John Wesley (1703 ~ 1791)
" Let your speech [be] alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that
ye may know how ye ought to answer every man."
~~~ Colossians 4:6
the words of my mouth, and
of my heart, be acceptable in
Thy sight, O Lord, my strength
and my redeemer."
~~~ Psalm 19:14
" Our culture has accepted two huge lies. The first is that if
you disagree with someone's lifestyle, you must fear them or hate them. The second is that to love someone means you agree
with everything they believe or do. Both are nonsense. You don't have to compromise convictions to be compassionate."
~~~ Rick Warren (1954- )
" Let the Bible, the whole Bible, and nothing but the Bible, be
the rule of our faith and practice. Holding this principle, we travel upon the king’s highway. The road may sometimes
seem narrow, and our faith may be severely tried, but we shall not be allowed greatly to err. Departing from this principle
we enter on a pathless wilderness. There is no telling what we may be led to believe or do. Forever let us bear this in mind.
Here let us cast anchor. Here let us abide."
~~~ J.C.Ryle (1861-1900)
