One of the worst forms of Isolationism is the “One Man Empire.” Often it begins something like this: A preacher notes a weakness, an ignoring of certain truths, an error being practiced by the established churches. He takes this opportunity to begin to draw followers to himself, pointing out that he is the only one teaching the truth. All others are in obvious error. If he is a skilled orator, especially good at polemics… cutting down and ridiculing his opponents, and a good promoter, he can quickly gather a following from those who have been disillusioned, disgusted, starved or embittered by their previous religious affiliations.

Conrad Murrell, Isolationism

Prayer is a sincere, sensible, affectionate pouring out of the soul to God, through Christ, in the strength and assistance of the Spirit, for such things as God has promised.

John Bunyan

You will be in an eternity of eternities in glory and you will not reach the foothills of the Mt. Everest of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Paul Washer

Many people come to listen to the gospel who have been brought up in a religious atmosphere, in religious homes, who have always gone to church and Sunday School, never missed meetings; yet they may be unregenerate. They need the same salvation as the man who may have come to listen, who has never been inside a House of God before. He may have come out of some moral gutter; it does not matter. It is the same way, the same gospel for both, and both must come in in the same way. Religiosity is of no value; morality does not count; nothing matters. We are all reduced to the same level because it is “by faith,” because it is “by grace.

D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, The First Forty Years

If there was one thing that set me apart in my life before Christ, it was that I was a liar. I would lie more than any human being I’ve ever known. And I sit there and go: “Now I am known as being courageous and telling the truth when I was the biggest coward and the biggest liar.” Do you see that? Isn’t that amazing? And I would still be today the biggest coward and the biggest liar if it were not for the grace of God.

Paul Washer, Paul Washer’s Testimony: A Liar and a Coward

The secret of a lasting marriage and a happy marriage is in perpetually, continually, habitually giving God the number one position, purpose and passion in your lives and marriage. It is hard for two proud people to get along. As you walk humbly with your God, all is smooth.

Bob Jennings, Thoughts on Marriage for Newlyweds

When we go to God by prayer, the devil knows we go to fetch strength against him, and therefore he opposeth us all he can.

Richard Sibbes, Divine Meditations, p. 164

Don’t be intimidated by the power in which godly men in history have ministered. Biographies may encourage us to serve the same God they served, or make us depressed because we do not see the same fruit they saw.

Conrad Murrell

A cleansed conscience is not a conscience that managed to forget guilt, it’s a conscience that has experienced guilt dealt with by the price being fully paid at the Cross.

Ryan Fullerton, A Weak Conscience Seared by Legalism

If I could hear Christ praying for me in the next room, I would not fear a million enemies. Yet distance makes no difference. He is praying for me.
