Quotes (730)

The loathsome carcass does not more hatefully swarm with crawling maggots, than an unsanctified soul with filthy lusts. Look backward; where was ever the place, what was ever the time, in which you did not sin? Look inward; what part or power can you find in your soul or body which is not poisoned with sin? . . . Call to mind your omissions and commissions; the sins of your thoughts, words, and actions; the sins of your youth, and the sins of your riper years. Do not be like a desperate bankrupt that is afraid to look over his books. Read the records of conscience carefully. These books must be opened sooner or later.

– Joseph Alleine

1634 – 1668

  1. “Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess. The publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted. ” Luke 18:10-14


  2. If Pastors would get over the fear of being misunderstood and offensive to the congregation, then they would be in a position to allow the Holy Spirit to control the vessel as He desires to teach, rebuke, exhort and convict. These Pastors are standing before these sheep with cramps in their bowels and a dry mouth unless they open up with a comedy skit, or a warm fuzzy story. Pastors treat the congregation as though they are trying out for a comedy competition or something. they don’t realize I guess that they have to answer to God not the church.
