A few quotes to ponder

I have collected a great deal of quotes from many different people. Here are a few to ponder from many different people that all shared a love for Christ.

"There are two sides to this Baptism: The first is, you possess the Spirit; The second is that the Spirit possesses you." -- Smith Wigglesworth

A religion that gives nothing, costs nothing, and suffers nothing, is worth nothing. --Martin Luther

I am perplexed at the stupidity of the ordinary religious being. In the most practical of all matters he will talk and speculate and try to feel, but he will not set himself to do. --George MacDonald

The human race in the course of time has taken the liberty of softening and softening Christianity until at last we have contrived to make it exactly the opposite of what it is in the New Testament... --Soren Kierkegaard

The Church is looking for better methods; God is looking for better men. --E. M. Bounds

Isn’t it strange that people place so much emphasis upon going to church when there is not one command from Jesus to do so, and yet neglect the basic duties of our ordinary life which are commanded on every page of the Gospels? —William Law

Let your religion be less of a theory and more of a love affair. --G.K. Chesterton
