Quote :: Doctrine

"Great saints have always been dogmatic." - A. W. Tozer

"There can be no spiritual health without doctrinal knowledge." - J. I. Packer

One scholar says that the early Christians condemned false doctrine in a way that sounds almost unchristian today." - Vance Havner

"The question is not whether a doctrine is beautiful but whether it is true." - Augustus William and Julius Charles Hare

"Start with the Scriptures. Then go to those books that will help you. And above all, read both - or all - sides of the matter, for there are many sides. Do not be content with reading one side only. I find it tragic that people should read one side only. Often they have never heard of another side, or if they have, they are not prepared to even consider it." - D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

"It is an undoubted truth that every doctrine that comes from God, leads to God; and that which does not tend to promote holiness is not of God." - George Whitfield

"Doctrine is never meant merely to make us knowledgeable, but to make us godly." - James Philip
