Just the quote, interpretation should be left to the hearer...no arguing please. 

The crucible of adversity is a less severe trial to the Christian than the refining pot of prosperity.  Morning by Morning, February 10, H.A. Spurgeon

"I cannot pray, but I sin; I cannot preach, but I sin; I cannot administer, nor receive the holy sacrament, but I sin. My very repentance needs to be repented of: and the tears I shed need washing in the blood of Christ.”

Bishop George Berkeley.

Some might take issue with the "holy sacrament" part but the rest of what he said was spot on.

“An excuse is a skin of a reason stuffed with a lie.” — Billy Sunday

I first heard this in 1980-81 (not sure which) from a Christian brother while attending a IFB Church in Va. Bch. Va. I didn't know until today it originated with Billy.

"The more I know of some dogs the less I think of some Christians"

"Fighting Bob" Shuler from his sermon "Some Dogs I Have Known".

The sermon was about the faithfulness and courage of some dogs he came across in his lifetime as compared to some Christians.

He is not the Crystal Cathedral phony but an old time Methodist preacher during the 20s and 30s. 

Fighting Bob was so ahead of the cancel culture of today he got cancelled back in 1933 by the FCC for his sermons that called out crooked politicians and police and the politicians and police of Los Angeles in those days were corrupt beyond measure.

I heard this on the podcast, On Being, this morning.

 

Men marry women thinking they [women] will stay the same.

Women marry men thinking they [men] will change.

Your quote reminded me of three quotes from Mark Twain.

 

1. If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and a man.

2.The dog is a gentleman; I hope to go to his heaven, not man's.

3. The more I learn about people the more I like my dog.

"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart."           Helen Keller or Anne Sullivan

Some say Miss Keller attributed the saying to her teacher Anne Sullivan. As remarkable a life story as Helen Keller's was, so too is the biography of Anne Sullivan. https://www.biography.com/activist/anne-sullivan

"My concern is that unless we have a real spiritual awakening, and Jesus tarries a while longer, we need missionaries from Africa or China to reintroduce North America to Christianity."  The Purpose Of Man, A. W. Tozer

"We are too small to send missionaries all over the world. If we send missionaries to China and successfully convert the Chinese, they are large enough to send missionaries over the entire world."

 

A young Korean woman said this to me on a train in China as we traveled from Xi'an to Tianjin ... about a 26 hour trip.

Notable Quotes

“The great masquerade of evil has played havoc with all our ethical concepts. For evil to appear disguised as light, charity, historical necessity or social justice is quite bewildering to anyone brought up on our traditional ethical concepts, while for the Christian who bases his life on the Bible, it merely confirms the fundamental wickedness of evil.”
– Dietrich Bonhoeffer (Letters and Papers from Prison — 1967; 1997)

This might be a composite of quotations, but:

  "When we preach, we stand, not at a pulpit, but on a throne. We cannot play at preaching: Life, Death, Heaven and Hell all hang on the preaching and hearing of a sermon." CH Spurgeon

This used to hang on my office when I was first a pastor, (and wen I had an office).

I have good friends at Spurgeon's College in London.

"The Baptist preacher Carlyle Marney visited a college campus. A student asked, ’Dr. Marney, would you say a word or two about the resurrection of the dead?’

Marney answered, ’I will not discuss that with people like you.’

When the student wanted to know why, Marney said, ’Look at you, in the prime of the life, potent -- never have you known honest-to-God failure, heart-burn, impotency, solid defeat, brick walls, mortality. So what can you know of a dark world which only makes sense if Christ is raised?’" 1

1 from PreachingNow

Marney was a great influence on my life.

“If soul-winning is the most important work of the church, it naturally follows that Satan will do all he can to get us side-tracked or satisfied with something else.”

“But Social Service is not Salvation: and Reformation is not Regeneration.”

The meek man cares not at all who is greater than he, for he has long ago decided that the esteem of the world is not worth the effort. He develops toward himself a kindly sense of humor and learns to say, ’Oh, so you have been overlooked? They have placed someone else before you? They have whispered that you are pretty small stuff after all? And now you feel hurt because the world is saying about you the very things you have been saying about yourself? Only yesterday you were telling God that you were nothing, a mere worm of the dust. Where is your consistency? Come on, humble yourself, and cease to care what men think.’

A.W. Tozer - The Pursuit of God

Works, i.e. social service does not save, but faith without works is dead. Show me your works and I will show you your faith.

I read a quote similar to this somewhere recently but can't recall where and it's really bugging me. 😄

"Such as it is, the press has become the greatest power within the Western World, more powerful than the legislature, the executive and judiciary. One would like to ask; by whom has it been elected and to whom is it responsible?"

"The simple step of a courageous individual is not to take part in the lie. One word of truth outweighs the world."

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

It is impossible to separate works from faith, yea just as impossible as to separate burning from shining from fire.   Martin Luther

Interesting, I've seen a few articles alluding toward Martin Luther retaining observance of Roman Church dogma. A discussion on the dogma he retained apart from Luther's 95 Theses could be an extensive thread all on it's own.

I believe Luther considered himself Catholic til the day he died. He did retain some papist dogma but regardless, he did some great things and was a beacon of light in a dark church. After 1000 years of oppression under the iron fist of the Roman Church you can't expect people to shake off all the heresies over night. He was a great man in his day but I'd be leary of some of his theology.

Please amend your quote so that it is actually KJV. I realize that Maynard's blog is not, but we are KJV - and you've been told this before. I'm enjoying this thread of quotations, but Board rules are still in effect.  (and, just for clarification, "please" is a courtesy, not a request)

Where can I find the rules. I have look but have not found them.

I do not see a difference in the meaning between the two versions quoted.

Of course, Jesus did not use any of those words as he did not speak English and even if he did it would have been old, old English which is nothing like King James English or modern English. 

As 1timothy115 stated, this thread is a "Quotations" only and the reader is to think of his own conclusions to the quote offered. So, I will not express my opinions of the meaning of the differences of the two quotes nor enter into any argumentative statements.
