    day-the bloodless theories of unregenerate men that send their

    hearers to their doom instead of stopping them on their downward

    - H. A. Ironside

    "And what is wrong with the old method of scaring the ungodly with

    a sermon on hell?" - Vance Havner

    "There is a lot of soft, sentimental talk about Him today that brings

    no conviction. When Isaiah saw the Lord, he did not feel comfortable!

    Neither did Habakkuk nor Daniel nor Paul nor John. We want a

    picture of Him today that does not disturb us, that smiles at sin,

    and winks at iniquity. I remember a man who told me he wanted to

    hear no hell-fire sermons but rather about the meek and lowly Jesus.

    Yet the poor man did not seem to realize that the meek and lowly

    Jesus said more about hell than is reported from the lips of anyone

    else in the Bible! We need a true and complete vision of God in

    His holiness and Christ in His glory that will bring us to repentance."

    -Vance Havner.

    "Obedience is the crown and honour of all virtue."

    -Martin Luther

    "Spiritual maturity is reached when obedience [to God and His

    word] becomes a joy."

    "In Acts the apostles prayed for 10 days then preached for 10 min-

    utes and 3000 people were saved. Today pastors pray for 10 minutes

    then preach for 10 days and wonder why no-one is saved."

    -B.H. Clendennen.

    "It is a poor sermon that gives no offense; that neither makes the
    hearer displeased with himself nor with the preacher."

    -George Whitefield.
