Charles Spurgeon Quote

Nobody ever outgrows Scripture; the book widens and deepens with our years.

From 2 Timothy 3:16-17:  “All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, so that everyone who belongs to God may be proficient, equipped for every good work.”

Martin Luther Quote

The Bible is alive, it speaks to me; it has feet, it runs after me; it has hands, it lays hold of me.  The Bible is not antique or modern.  It is eternal.

From Matthew 4:4:  “But He [Jesus] answered, ‘It is written, One does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.'”

I believe the Bible is the best gift God has ever given to man.

From Matthew 4:4:  “But He answered, ‘It is written, One does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”

Reading news without reading the Bible will inevitably lead to an unbalanced life, an anxious spirit, a worried and depressed soul.

From Proverbs 30:5:  “Every Word of God proves true; He is a shield to those who take refuge in Him.”

Phillip Yancey Quote

The Bible is a Christian’s guidebook, and I believe the knowledge it sheds on pain and suffering is the great antidote to fear for suffering people.  Knowledge can dissolve fear as light destroys darkness.

From 2 Timothy 3:16-17:  “All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, so that everyone who belongs to God may be proficient, equipped for every good work.
