Favorite Quotes:

Christianity Offers:
(PARDON) Freedom from guilt. What God forgives, God forgets.
(POWER) Freedom from sin and the ability to be useful. We can be better; just ask.
( PARTNERSHIP) A point. A direction for life. The end of a useless life and the beginning of a useful one. To be like Jesus. He gives us a job to do. A life to live with him.
General John Gowans

"If you read history, you will find that the Christians who did most for the present world were just those who thought most of the next. It is since Christians have largely ceased to think of the other world that they have become so ineffective in this."
C. S. Lewis

“All you have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to you.”
J. R. R. Tolkien

“The two major causes of most emotional problems among Christians are these: the failure to understand, receive, and live out God’s unconditional grace and forgiveness; and the failure to give out that unconditional love, forgiveness, and grace to other people…”
Dr. David Semands

“To be a Christian means to forgive the inexcusable, because God has forgiven the inexcusable in you.”
C. S. Lewis

“We have forgotten the gracious Hand which preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us, and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own.”
Abraham Lincoln

"It is cold, and we have no blankets; the little children are freezing to death. My people, some of them, have run away to the hills, and have no blankets, no food. No one knows where they are, perhaps freezing to death. I want to have time to look for my children, and see how many of them I can find. Maybe I shall find them among the dead. Hear me, my chiefs! I am tired; my heart is sick and sad. From where the sun now stands, I will fight no more forever."
Chief Joseph

“It is easy to say we believe in God as long as we remain in the little world we choose to live in; but get out into the great world of facts, the noisy world where people are absolutely indifferent to you, where your message is nothing more than a crazy tale belonging to a bygone age, can you believe God there?”
Oswald Chambers

“Nothing is easier than denouncing the evildoer; nothing more difficult than understanding him.”
Fyodor Dostoevsky

Madness - Insanity does not always howl; sometimes it is the quite little voice in the back of your mind saying “Is there room for one more in there?”
