  • Quotes about faith

    Faith is a gift from God by His grace. God reveals Himself to those
    who truly seek Him and knowing Him bring, forth faith in Him.

    Lou Newton


    "Faith and works are bound up in the same bundle. He that obeys

    God trusts God; and he that trusts God obeys God. He that is

    without faith is without works; and he that is without works is

    without faith."

    -Charles Spurgeon


    "I believe the promises of God enough to venture an eternity on them."

    -Isaac Watts


    "Faith looks not at what happens to him but at Him Whom he

    believes."

    -Watchman Nee


    "The issue of faith is not so much whether we believe in God, but

    whether we believe the God we believe in."

    -RC Sproul

    It is refreshing to know that Spurgeon learned from the Book of James.

    -Isaac Watts

    Wonderful works by Isaac Watts include A Guide to Prayer & The World to Com.e
    Isaac Watts has been called the father of English hymnody (650 hymns)
    Divine and Moral Songs for Children became a ubiquitous children’s book throughout England for nearly two hundred years. By the mid-19th century, the book existed in over a thousand editions. So well-known were some of the children’s poems that Lewis Carroll parodied them in Alice in Wonderland and Charles Dickens referenced them in David Copperfield. Modern readers (or singers), however, remember Watts’ songbook not so much for its rhymes for children, but for its hymns. For many Christian families throughout the English-speaking world, Isaac Watts—author of “Joy to the World” and “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross”—remains a household name.

    This ought to be labeled a course in Christian parenting.

    Have you read Isaac Watts (1674-1748) book on fishing?
    Oh, no! It is NOT Isaac Watts but Izaak Walton (1593-1683) who published The Complete Angler in 1653 two decades before Isaac Watts was born.
    As practical as it is inspirational, Izaak Walton'’s classic work stands to this day as one of the most famous and well respected fishing books on the planet. The book is half instruction manual and half global vision. It talks of how man needs to live in harmony with nature, all while championing the sport of fishing as a means to share nature as a global community.

    "The issue of faith is not so much whether we believe in God, but

    whether we believe the God we believe in."

    -RC Sproul

    This is a significant insight, especially in these times when pumping up ones faith is the means to manipulate or force your will on God. Another way of stating this RC Sproul quote is “TRUST GOD” or “In God we trust.”

    This is biblical but there is another aspect.
    God reveals Himself to some who reject Him.
    How else can God be rejected if He is not revealed?
    Every evangelist, every one who testifies, observe the spiritual struggle of some before they say, “I do not surrender.”

    This category, Classic’s of the Christian Faith, ought to compel us to read these classics. It is not just important but necessary to know the foundation of the Bible but also the foundation of the tradition from which we all are indebted. These classics, even if we have not read them effect what we think and believe because they become the culture. This is nowhere more observable than in the modern view of hell and Halloween than the influence of the book Inferno (1320) by Dante Alighieri (1265-1321). Now, nearly 1810 years after the completion this book continues to influence the entire Christian world even if you have never heard of this book or know anyone who has.

    Only the ignorant of the past claim they are not influenced by all that has gone before them.
