The following 36 out of 38 total results were found:
1. God is not silent. It is the nature of God to speak. The second person of the Holy Trinity is called ~The Word~.
2. The only way to understand the difficult parts of the Bible is first to read and obey the easy ones.
3. Though I have been laborious in my literary inquiries, and have possessed myself of a great number of valuable books and manuscripts upon all ancient subjects, yet I can rest the happiness of my soul on none of them except the Holy Scriptures.
4. Every morning, read seriously and reverently a portion of the Holy Scriptures, and acquaint yourselves with the history and doctrine thereof. It is a book full of light and wisdom, will make you wise to eternal life, and furnish you with directions and principles to guide and order your life safely and prudently.
5. Read the Bible, read the Bible! Let no religious book take its place. Through all my perplexities and distresses, I seldom read any other book, and I as rarely felt the want of any other.
6. The first and almost the only book deserving universal attention is the Bible...the Bible is the book of all others, to be read at all ages, and in all conditions of human life.
7. The deathless Book has survived three great dangers: the negligence of its friends; the false systems built upon it; the warfare of those who have hated it.
8. Explain the Scriptures by the Scriptures.
9. Believe God's word and power more than you believe your own feelings and experiences.
10. The Word of God is plain in itself; and if there appear any obscurity in one place, the Holy Ghost, which is never contrarious to Himself, explains the same more clearly in other places.
11. The Bible without the Holy Spirit is a sundial by moonlight.
12. It is a great thing, this reading of Scriptures! For it is not possible to ever exhaust the mind of the Scriptures. It is a well that has no bottom.
13. Nobody ever outgrows Scripture; the book widens and deepens with our years.
14. Give me a candle and a Bible, and shut me up in a dark dungeon, and I will tell you what the whole world is doing.
15. An honest man with an open Bible and a pad and pencil is sure to find out what is wrong with him very quickly.
16. While I am sowing in one place, they ravage the field I have just left. I cannot be everywhere. If Christians had the Scriptures in their own tongue, they could themselves withstand these sophists: without the Bible it is impossible to establish the laity in the truth. If God give me life, ere many years the ploughboys shall know more of the Scriptures than you do.
17. The study of God's Word, for the purpose of discovering God's will, is the secret discipline which has formed the greatest characters.
18. The Bible makes much of determination. Choose ye this day whom ye will serve. Strive to enter in at the strait gate. See that ye refuse not Him that speaketh. Quench not the Spirit. Escape for thy life. All this style of admonition and direction shows that the sinner has a host of obstacles between him and Heaven; and he must push his way through, or perish.
19. The Bible is God's chart for you to steer by, to keep you from the bottom of the sea, and to show you where the harbor is, and how to reach it without running on rocks or bars.
20. Strong preachers have ever been Bible preachers. --Fish
21. The Bible as a book stands alone. There never was, nor ever will be, another like it. As there is but one sun to enlighten the world naturally, so there is but one Book to enlighten the world spiritually. May that Book become to each of us the man of our counsel, the guide of our journey, the inspiration of our thought, and our support and comfort in life and in death. --A. Galloway
22. "Many people wish the Bible to overawe them, as Sinai did the Israelites...who worshiped it one day and danced around a calf the next."
23. "If thou sin, the word of God is thy adversary. It is the adversary of thy will till it become the author of thy salvation."
24. "There is mention of a sword turning every way: parallel whereto is the Word of God in a wounded conscience. Man's heart is full of windings, turnings, and doublings, to shift and shun the stroke thereof, if possible: but this sword meets them wheresoever they move; it fetches and finds them out; it haunts and hunts them, forbidding them, during their agony, any entrance into the paradise of one comfortable thought."
25. "He that loves the Word and the purity of its precepts cannot turn traitor."
26. "The seed once sown grows...of itself, from its own impulse and power of life....The self-inherent power of growth of the kingdom of God."
27. "A false interpretation of Scripture causes that the gospel of the Lord becomes the gospel of man, or, which is worse, of the devil."
28. "The Bible is either absolute, or it's obsolete."
29. "If we abide by the principles taught in the Bible, our country will go on prospering and to prosper. I make it a practice to read the Bible through once every year."
30. "The Holy Scriptures are our letters from home."
31. "The Word of God well understood and religiously obeyed is the shortest route to spiritual perfection. And we must not select a few favorite passages to the exclusion of others. Nothing less than a whole Bible can make a whole Christian."
32. "There's no better book with which to defend the Bible than the Bible itself."
33. "The gospel alone is sufficient to rule the lives of Christians everywhere...any additional rules made to govern men's conduct added nothing to the perfection already found in the Gospel of Jesus Christ."
34. "Unless I am convicted by Scripture and plain reason---I do not accept the authority of popes and councils, for they have contradicted each other---my conscience is captive to the Word of God. I cannot and will not recant anything, for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. Here I stand, I cannot do otherwise. God help me. Amen."
35. "I am perfectly convinced that whatever the gospels are they are not legends. I have read a great deal of legend and I am quite clear they are not that sort of thing....Christ bent down and scribbled in the dust with His finger. Nothing comes of this. No one has based any doctrine on it. And the act of inventing little irrelevant details to make an imaginary scene more convincing is purely a modern art."
36. "Indeed, I disagree very much with those who are unwilling that Holy Scripture, translated into the vulgar tongue, be read by the uneducated, as if Christ taught such intricate doctrines that they could scarcely be understood by very few theologians, or as if the strength of the Christian religion consisted in men's ignorance of it."
