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

Marney was a great influence on my life.

      Havent been on for years, but have been studying with Jews for Jesus weekly Bible Study which has been wonderful.  Not sure any of your views on that group, but if you are from a Jewish background a great place to be grounded in the word and to learn.

      I am a researcher and writer at Watch Unto Prayer which I started 25 years ago. On this website there are many well-documented articles and audio programs by myself and other researchers whose ministry is to expose the endtime apostasy of the Church. Now more than ever Christians need information in order to identify and avoid the various deceptions that are in nearly all the churches.
      My husband and I attended the IFB Bible Baptist Church of James Knox a couple of years ago. We left the church after we were informed by the assistant pastor that we were not allowed to express views to other members that do not agree with the views of the pastor and leaders of the church. We were not introducing heresy but expressing our views concerning the State of Israel. We had never been in a church which forbade private conversations on issues where there are diverse opinions. This we recognized as cultlike control of church members. To inform Christians, my husband, who is also a researcher and writer, started a website on the subject: Zionism Exposed: A Watchman Ministry.

      Brother Tony, I read your reply on Anderson, I know you all think I'm argumentative but, when you don't agree.....the first thought I had is, I wish you would introduce me to the guy that hasn't sinned, maybe David, that had a man killed so he could commit adultery, yet, he was & is a man after Gods own heart, or maybe Paul the guy that persecuted and had Christians killed, or maybe Richg or Kent H, or even you ! I used to listen to personalities also when I was younger but today and for some time, my only concern is, does it line up with scripture & to me its hilarious that you think "I'm in a fix" LOL, I interpreted what we've discussed perfectly, not because I'm smart, but because with an open mind to things of God, its an easy read.
