"We have no more right to use Scripture dishonestly for a noble cause than the cults do for ignoble causes." - Author unknown

"It is better to be divided by truth than to be united in error. It is better to speak the truth that hurts and then heals, than falsehood that comforts and then kills. It is not love and it is not friendship if we fail to declare the whole counsel of God. It is better to be hated for telling the truth than to be loved for telling a lie. It is impossible to find anyone in the Bible who was a power for God who did not have enemies and was not hated. It's better to stand alone with the truth than to be wrong with a multitude. It is better to ultimately succeed with the truth than to temporarily succeed with a lie." - Dr. Adrian Rogers (quoted in The Berean Call, Dec. 1996, page 3)

"There are two books laid before us to study, to prevent us from falling into error: first, the volume of the Scriptures, which reveal the will of God; then the volume of the creation, which expresses His power." - Sir Francis Bacon, Answers in Genesis, Feb. 1995

"The supplanting of sound values by the world's methods of popularity and success may be clouding the influence of the Bible upon our writing. This is a difficult problem. Christian writing needs the note of contemporaneity, but never at the expense of truth." - Frank E. Gaebelein, Feb. 4, 1957

"Robert E. Lee: the Bible was to him the book of books - 'a book,' he wrote, 'which supplies the place of all others, and... cannot be replaced by any other.' He received various copies of the Bible, both for himself and for the college, but the one he used was a pocket edition he had carried with him in all his campaigning since he had been a lieutenant colonel in the United States army. He was interested deeply in the work of Bible societies and served as president of the Rockbridge organization. Even for the circulation of small religious newspapers he was willing to make a personal effort."

"Thus far it is easy to proceed in analyzing Lee's religion in after-war days. Beyond this it is not possible to go. Simple as was his soul, he had 'meat to eat that ye know not of."

"The difference between what you believe and what you almost believe is like the difference between lightning and the lightning bug." - Mark Twain

"Backsliders begin with dusty Bibles and end up with filthy garments. Oh, what a price true believers pay for the neglect of Scripture! We need grace to be made and kept Bible readers, Bible lovers, Bible searchers, and Bible livers." - Charles H. Spurgeon, quoted in News & Views, Jan-Mar 1996, page 5

"Most people are bothered by those Scripture passages which they cannot understand. But for me, the passages in Scripture which trouble me most are those which I do understand." - Mark Twain

"The greatest proof that the Bible is inspired is that it has stood so much bad preaching." - A. T. Robertson

"The Bible will never be a dry book to those who use it as a source of 'living water.'" - author unknown

"Ignorance of the Scriptures is ignorance of Christ." - Jerome

"Pause at every verse of Scripture and shake, as it were, every bough of it, that if possible some fruit at least may drop down." - Martin Luther

"Reading Bible stories to children is never an innocent act. It is useless to pretend that the bible is simply another collection of tales, that Abraham, Noah and Moses are only another group of heroes, different from but equal to Achilles, Rama or Thor. One proof is that nursery school classes are replete with Jacobs and Joshuas, but now that the sixties are over one would be hard pressed to find a tiny Alcibiades or Krishna in the sandbox. We in the West are formed by or against the stories of the Bible, and when we read them to our children we are really saying, 'This is how you and I inhabit the world.'" - May Gordon in the New York Times Book Review, Nov. 8, 1987

"Many people treat the Bible like a drunk treats a lightpost; for support, not illumination." - author unknown

"He does not pick and choose; he allows ever part of the Bible to speak to him. He is not impatient. He takes time to read it; he does not rush to a few favorite psalms and use them as a kind of hypnotic when he cannot sleep at night; he allows the whole Word to examine him and search him.'" - Lloyd-Jones

"The Bible is a fountain where martyrs have cooled their faces
Is a pillow where saints have rested their heads
Is bread that never stales
Is milk that never spoils." - R. G. Lee

"Satan is subtle and he began our downfall by first questioning the Word of God and then denying it. The basis of Satan's attack against the Christian faith is an attack upon the infallibility of the Bible." - W. A. Criswell

"Ninety-three percent of Americans own a copy of the bible or other Scriptures, yet only 42% can name just five of the Ten Commandments." - Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

"The Bible is like a lion. When you have a lion, you don't have to defend him. Just turn him loose; he'll defend himself." - Billy Graham

"The Bible is not a book for our convenience. Commitment is written across its pages from Genesis 1:1 through Revelation 22:21." - Chuck Swindoll

"We must adjust ourselves to the Bible - never the Bible to ourselves." - author unknown
