“Forgiveness: A decision you make to obey God by faith and to walk out the obedience as a new lifestyle, in a higher realm by not allowing someone else’s action or attitude to dictate your actions or attitudes.  Forgiveness does NOT demand an emotional payment!”  —Stephen Black

“Forgiveness is a crisis of your will.” —Unknown

“Freedom is not the absence of struggle but the ability, by God’s grace, to rise above life challenges to walk in truth and righteousness; never again to be defined by a fallen identity. ” —Stephen Black

“We who preach the gospel must not think of ourselves as public relations agents sent to establish good will between Christ and the world.

We are not diplomats but prophets, and our message is not a compromise but an ultimatum.” —A.W. Tozer

“A dog barks when his master is attacked. I would be a coward if I saw the truth of God attacked and yet would remain silent.”  —John Calvin

“The chief danger of the Church today is that it is trying to get on the same side as the world, instead of turning the world upside down.

There is only one Gospel.”  —Adrian Rogers (1931-2005)

“There is only one way to avoid criticism: do nothing, say nothing, and be nothing.”  —Aristotle

 

Quotes on Culture

Founding Forefather Quotes – Quotes to Stand BY:

“ It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and Bible.” —George Washington, First President of the United States of America

“”The principles of all genuine liberty, and of wise laws and administrations are to be drawn from the Bible and sustained by its authority. The man, therefore, who weakens or destroys the divine authority of that BOOK may be accessory to all the public disorders which society is doomed to suffer.”   —Noah Webster – Forefather and Founder of Education in the USA

[W]e have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion (Christianity). . . . Our constitution was made only for a moral and (Christian) religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other. —John Adams (second President, signer of the Declaration of Independence)

“The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government — lest it come to dominate our lives and interests.” —Patrick Henry

“I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.” —Thomas Jefferson

“When governments fear the people there is liberty.  When the people fear the government there is tyranny.”  —Thomas Jefferson

“Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.” —Benjamin Franklin

“A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take everything you have.” —Thomas Jefferson & Gerald Ford

John Adams, 2nd President of the United States of America, Vice-President to 1st President George Washington for 8 Years, and first president to live in the White House.  John Adams was a signer of the Declaration of Independence, and a member of the Continental Congress. He also authored the classic three-volume work titled, A Defense of the Constitutions of the Government of the United States. It was Adams who urged Thomas Jefferson to draft the Declaration of Independence. It was Adams who recommended that Congress appoint George Washington to be Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army. And it was Adams who negotiated the final treaty with Great Britain ending the Revolutionary War. If anyone doubts that John Adams and our founders were solid believers in God and His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, they have not studied history.  Take note of these following quotes of John Adams.

In his diary entry dated February 22, 1756, John Adams wrote:

“Suppose a nation in some distant region should take the Bible for their only law book, and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited! Every member would be obliged in conscience, to temperance, frugality, and industry; to justice, kindness, and charity towards his fellow men; and to piety, love and reverence toward Almighty God…What a Utopia, what a Paradise would this region be.”

On July 1, 1776, John Adams declared before the Continental Congress, as the 13 colonies were getting ready to sever ties from Great Britain:
“Before God, I believe the hour has come. My judgment approves this measure, and my whole heart is in it. All that I have, and all that I am, and all that I hope in this life, I am now ready here to stake upon it. And I leave off as I began, that live or die, survive or perish, I am for the Declaration. It is my living sentiment, and by the blessing of God it shall be my dying sentiment. Independence now, and Independence for ever!”

On July 3, 1776, John Adams made this statement, regarding America’s decision the previous day to declare independence from Great Britain:
“The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America, to be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival, commemorated as the day of deliverance by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty from one end of the Continent to the other, from this time forward forevermore.”

“[I]t is religion (Christianity) and morality alone which can establish the principles upon which freedom can securely stand. The only foundation of a free constitution is pure virtue.” —John Adams

“The doctrines of Jesus are simple, and tend all to the happiness of mankind.” —Thomas Jefferson

“Men, in a word, must necessarily be controlled either by a power within them or by a power without them; either by the Word of God or by the strong arm of man; either by the Bible or by the bayonet.”Robert Winthrop, Former Speaker of the US House of Representatives in 1847

“You can’t make a weak man strong, by making a strong man weak.” —Abraham Lincoln

“Sir, my concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God’s side, for God is always right” –Abraham Lincoln

“The people of the United States are the rightful masters of both Congress and the Courts, not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.” –Abraham Lincoln

“If there is anything that links the human to the divine, it is the courage to stand by a principle when everybody else rejects it.”― Abraham Lincoln

“The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.” —Thomas Jefferson

“There are no easy answers’ but there are simple answers. We must have the courage to do what we know is morally right.” —Ronald Reagan

“My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.” —Thomas Jefferson

“The BIBLE is the rock on which our Republic rests” —Andrew Jackson
