    "People do not believe lies because they have to, but because

    they want to."
    - Malcolm Muggeridge


    "I can say that I never knew what joy was like until I gave up

    pursuing happiness, or cared to live until I chose to die. For

    these two discoveries I am beholden to Jesus."


    - Malcolm Muggeridge


    "Contrary to what might be expected, I look back on experience

    that at the time seemed especially desolating and painful with

    particular satisfaction. Indeed, I can say with complete truthfulness

    that everything I have learned in my seventy-five years in this world,

    everything that has truly enhanced and enlightened my experience,

    has been through affliction and not through happiness, whether

    pursued or attained. In other words, if it were ever possible to

    eliminate affliction from our earthly existence by means of some

    drug or other medical mumbo jumbo...the result would make it too

    banal and trivial to be endurable. This, of course is what the cross

    signifies. And it is the Cross that has called me inexorably to

    Christ."
    - Malcolm Muggeridge


    "A man being rich under the gospel, when it is known that his

    money can be used for the glory of God and the conversion of

    souls, is demonstration absolute, that he loves the world

    supremely. To say that he is rich, but does not set his heart upon

    riches--that he continues to retain his wealth, and yet does not set

    his heart upon it, is manifestly absurd and false. For, certainly,

    nothing but a supreme attachment to it could cause him to hold on

    to the possession of it, when every wind is loaded down with cries

    and beseechings to send the bread of life to those that are ready

    to perish." - Charles Finney


    "A preacher who preaches the truth uncompromisingly will be

    asked 'Does your preaching always have to be so pointy? Does it

    always have to be so sharp?' And of course the answer is no. He

    can blunt his message if he'd like, and become just as dull as the

    average preacher." - Jesse Morrell


    "It is not our business to make the message acceptable, but to

    make it available. We are not to see that they like it, but that they

    get it." -Dr. Vance Havner


    "A man who spoke little English gave this description of a sermon

    he had heard: he said 'Big wind. Much lightning. Loud thunder. No

    rain!'" -Selected-


    "A wooden key is not so beautiful as a golden one, but if it can

    open the door when the golden one cannot, it is more useful."


    - Martin Luther


    "That is the best cat which catches the most mice." - Martin Luther


    "No one can be a good preacher to the people who is not willing to

    preach in a manner that seems childish and vulgar to some."

    - Martin Luther


    "So preach that those who do not fall out with their sins may fall

    out with thee." - Martin Luther
