Quotes (759)

Here is a pattern that all ministers ought to follow. Publicly and privately, from the pulpit and in private visits, they ought to rebuke all open sin, and deliver a faithful warning to all who are living in it. It may give offence. It may entail immense unpopularity. With all this they have nothing to do. Duties are theirs. Results are God’s.

– J.C. Ryle

1816 – 1900

  1. Amen and Lord may it be so in many churches. Too many preachers are “people-driven” and more concerned with the people in the pews than with the Judge of the Universe.


  2. Well said and I agree with Manfred that it is so rare to hear about the utter evils of sin behind the pulpit much less through exhortation and personal rebuke. It’s not wonder why church discipline is all but extinct in the church today. Lord forgive us for our foolish ways!

    Soli Deo Gloria!
