    I have started similar threads on other forums and didn't see one here.

    I like to read and share quotes from others.

    Here is one of my many Favorites.

    [font="verdana]"The gospel of grace is the end of religion, the final posting of the CLOSED sign on the sweatshop of the human race's perpetual struggle to think well of itself. For that, at bottom, is what religion is: man's well-meant but dim-witted attempt to approve of his unapprovable condition by doing odd jobs he thinks some important Something will thank him for.
    "Religion, therefore, is a loser, a strictly fallen activity. It has a failed past and a bankrupt future. There was no religion in Eden and there won't be any in heaven; and in the meantime Jesus has died and risen to persuade us to knock it all off right now."
    (Ibid., pg. 166.)[/font]

    Sometimes God has to put us flat on our back before we are looking up to Him.

    This is one of my favorites from A. Knoch:

    "Those who claim their "rights" almost always trespass upon the "rights" of others. Even when we have a perfect title to everything that we possess, so far as human law can make it, all of it may vanish in the face of other rights. In war most of man's rights disappear. A wealthy man may become a beggar in a day, and have no right to recover an iota of all his riches. An insistence on our rights is almost always a prelude to a greater loss in another sphere."

    That last line is almost as prophetic as it is insightful. Over the years I have repeatedly been reminded of the direction my life will take if I should choose to demand my rights. Especially at home have I learned the value of esteeming others(i.e. my wife) more highly than myself. While it may take on the appearance of loss, to let others ahead of me in trying situations, the gain in spiritual advancement is always forthcoming. I am not able to follow this counsel while commandeering an automobile. Driving continues to become an increasing aggravation amongst the foolish and lawless that operate on the city streets and highways nowadays.

    Seems we can be very stubborn children at times. But oh how He loves us![​IMG]

    Very insightful. We sure needed to here this about a week ago.
    Would this be A.E. (Adolph Ernst) Knock?

    Here's a good one from one of the great composers...

    It is a great consolation for me to remember that the Lord, to whom I had drawn near in humble and child-like faith, has suffered and died for me, and that He will look on me in love and compassion.

    Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

    I am sure that never was a people, who had more reason to acknowledge a Divine interposition in their affairs, than those of the United States; and I should be pained to believe that they have forgotten that agency, which was so often manifested during our Revolution, or that they failed to consider the omnipotence of that God who is alone able to protect them.

    Why is it that humans, who have great statesmen like GW, can't acknowledge them and honor their wisdom. It was already a problem in his day. Sad, very sad

    Thanks 6stringed,

    What's amazing to me is how so many people try to claim the founding fathers of the United States were all atheists... yet I can find quotes like this all day.

    Yes it is amazing, but I think it is also indicative of the stage of Father's plan that we're in.

    Have you ever read "Our Sacred Honor" by William Bennett? It is full of letters from America's founding fathers with such comments.

    Isaiah 45:6-8

    [sup]6[/sup] That they may know from the rising of the sun to its setting
    That there is none besides Me.
    I am the LORD, and there is no other;


    [sup]7[/sup] I form the light and create darkness,
    I make peace and create calamity;
    I, the LORD, do all these things.


    [sup]8[/sup] “ Rain down, you heavens, from above,
    And let the skies pour down righteousness;
    Let the earth open, let them bring forth salvation,
    And let righteousness spring up together.
    I, the LORD, have created it.
