“Great True Americanism recognizes the enormous gravity of the social and labor problems which confront us.--- True, Social Contrast the United States with any country on the face of the earth today and ask yourself whether the situation of the United States is not the best to be found"? Henry Cabot Lodge
(Re George Whitefield's sermons) "It was wonderful to see the change soon made in the manners of our inhabitants. From being thoughtless or indifferent about religion, it seemed as if all the world were growing religious, so that one could not walk thro' the town in an evening without hearing psalms sung in different families of every street." -- Ben Franklin
“Even in the greatest afflictions, we ought to testify to God, that, in receiving them from his hand, we feel pleasure in the midst of the pain, from being afflicted by Him who loves us, and whom we love. --
The readiest way which God takes to draw a man to himself is, to afflict him in that he loves most, and with good reason; and to cause this affliction to arise from some good action done with a single eye; because nothing can more clearly show him the emptiness of what is most lovely and desirable in the world.”-- John Wesley
Regarding Right Wing and Left Wing: Ecclesiastes 10:2 “A wise man's heart is at his right hand; but a fool's heart at his left.” --- King Solomon
"Nothing is more destructive of respect for the government and the law of the land than passing laws which cannot be enforced." —Albert Einstein
"The Bible is the chief moral cause of all that is 'good', and the best corrector of all that is 'evil', in human society; the 'best' book for regulating the temporal concerns of men, and the 'only book' that can serve as an infallible guide to future felicity. It is alleged by men of loose principles...that religion and morality are not necessary or important qualifications for political stations. But the Scriptures teach a different doctrine.
They direct that rulers should be men who rule in the fear of God, able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness ... And it is to the neglect of this rule of conduct in our citizens, that we must ascribe the multiplied frauds, breeches of trust, peculations and embezzlements of public property which astonish even ourselves; which tarnish the character of our country; which disgrace a republican government; and which will tend to reconcile men to monarchs in other countries and even our own." --- Noah Webster
( Honoring Steve Scalise; pray for him.)
On the 2nd Amendment: "Undoubtedly some think that the Second Amendment is outmoded in a society where our standing army is the pride of our Nation, where well-trained police forces provide personal security, and where gun violence is a serious problem. That is perhaps debatable, but what is not debatable is that it is not the role of this Court to pronounce the Second Amendment extinct".--Justice Antonin Scalia
"God Bless America Again" Lee Greenwood
"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it". — Jesus Christ
“I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had no where else to go. My own wisdom and that of all about me seemed insufficient for that day.” ― Abraham Lincoln
"Moral evils constitute or produce most of the miseries of mankind and these may be prevented or avoided.
Be it remembered then that disobedience to God's law, or sin is the procuring cause of almost all the sufferings of mankind.
God has so formed the moral system of this world, that a conformity to His will by men produces peace, prosperity and happiness; and disobedience to His will or laws inevitably produces misery. --- Noah Webster
“Trump victory has driven the liberal lefties “clinically insane.” One has only turn on the television and see the wild and destructive behavior of the Democrat base. This whole episode of pointless protesting rioting and violence can be laid at the feet of the mainstream media. They set the expectations and fomented the mobs.” Rush Limbaugh
“In view of such harmony in the cosmos which I, with my limited human mind, am able to recognize, there are yet people who say there is no God. But what really makes me angry is that they quote me for the support of such views.” –Dr. Albert Eistein
“God Almighty does not throw dice.” and “Before God we are all equally wise – equally foolish.” ---Dr. Albert Enistein
(On Character:) "Bear in mind that brains and learning, like muscle and physical skill, are articles of commerce. They are bought and sold. You can hire them by the year or by the hour. The only thing in the world not for sale is character".--Justice Antonin Scalia
If a man is going to be an American at all let him be so without any qualifying adjectives, and if he is going to be something else, let him drop the word American from his personal description”. Henry Cabot Lodge
“The world is my parish” (in response to the bishop of Bristol who objected to his preaching as it “disrupted” local Anglican services.
You have nothing to do but to save souls. Therefore spend and be spent in this work. And go not only to those that need you, but to those that need you most. It is not your business to preach so many times, and to take care of this or that society; but to save as many souls as you can; to bring as many sinners as you possibly can to repentance.
Unless God has raised you up for this very thing, you will be worn out by the opposition of men and devils. But if God be for you, who can be against you? Are all of them together stronger than God? O be not weary of well doing!
Give me one hundred preachers who fear nothing but sin and desire nothing but God, and I care not whether they be clergymen or laymen, they alone will shake the gates of Hell and set up the kingdom of Heaven upon Earth.
It is no marvel that the devil does not love field preaching! Neither do I; I love a commodious room, a soft cushion, a handsome pulpit. But where is my zeal if I do not trample all these underfoot in order to save one more soul?”--John Wesley
(RE: London Bridge, we have been warned many times for many years)
"Ever since the religion of Islam appeared in the world, the espousers of it...have been as wolves and tigers to all other nations, rending and tearing all that fell into their merciless paws, and grinding them with their iron teeth; that numberless cities are raised from the foundation, and only their name remaining; that many countries, which were once as the garden of God, are now a desolate wilderness; and that so many once numerous and powerful nations are vanished from the earth! Such was, and is at this day, the rage, the fury, the revenge, of these destroyers of kind". John Wesley
“If we seem to get no good by attempting to draw near to Him, we may be sure we will get none by keeping away from Him.” ― John Newton
Note: "Only 52 scientists agreed to IPCC 2007 summary report linking human CO2 to global warming. In contrast, 650 scientists have publicly announced their disagreement with the theory of man-made global warming. In addition, 31,000 American scientists/researchers have signed the Oregon Petition stating their direct opposition to the Kyoto global warming agreement. Approximately 17,000 signers have a PhD or a M.S". -- C3 Headlines
"To give children a good education in manners, arts and science, is important; to give them a religious education is indispensable; and an immense responsibility rests on parents and guardians who neglect these duties. "All the miseries and evils which men suffer from vice, crime, ambition, injustice, oppression, slavery and war, proceed from their despising or neglecting the contained in the Bible." --- Noah Webster
