  1. "When I see an ad in the paper by a local business, and it includes a cross or a fish, I tend to avoid that business. Either the businessman is a Christian or he is a fraud. If the latter, obviously I don't want to do business with him. If the former, he is praying on the street corner. Christianity should not be a marketing tool."
    - Unknown

  2. "...A man who hears many sermons, is not necessarily well-instructed in the faith. We may read so many religious books, that we overload our brains, and they may be unable to work under the weight of the great mass of paper and of printer's ink. The man who reads but one book, and that book his Bible, and then meditates much upon it, will be a better scholar in Christ's school than he who merely reads hundreds of books, and meditates not at all."
    - Charles Spurgeon

  3. "If the gospel were more faithfully preached, there would be fewer people professing to believe it."
    - A. W. Pink

  4. "Everywhere there is apathy. Nobody cares whether that which is preached is true or false. A sermon is a sermon whatever the subject; only, the shorter it is the better."
    - Charles Haddon Spurgeon

  5. "I grant freely that it costs little to be a mere outward Christian. A man has only got to attend a place of worship twice on sunday, and to be tolerably moral during the week, and he has gone as far as thousands around him ever go in religion. All this is cheap and easy work: it entails no self-denial or self-sacrifice. If this is saving Christianity, and will take us to heaven when we die, we must alter the description of the way of life, and write, "Wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to heaven!"
    - J. C. Ryle
