„Smrt není zánikem v jakékoliv použití toho slova. Vždy je to oddělení.“

„The Bible is the greatest of all books; to study it is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.“


„During my years of teaching I know that I have developed idiosyncrasies. I am certain that I am unaware of some of them, but one that I do know about is my invariable reaction the chapel speaker who begins his message something like this: 'Now today, young people, I'm going to be very practical in my message. I'll leave the doctrine to your teachers and the classroom - I just want to be practical.' By this time I have already tuned the speaker out, for he has made a fundamental mistake in disjoining doctrine and practice. All doctrine is practical, and all practice must be based on sound doctrine. Doctrine that is not practical is not healthy doctrine, and practice that is not doctrinal is not rightly based.“ Balancing the Christian Life

„God regenerates (John 1:13) according to His will (James 1:18) through the sovereign work of the Holy Spirit (John 3:5) when a person believes (John 1:12) the gospel as revealed in the Word of God (1 Peter 1:23).“ The Holy Spirit

But in regeneration it is cleansed and used by the Lord to guide the believer in his political, vocational, spiritual, and social relations.“ Balancing the Christian Life

„The ministries of the Spirit involve teaching (John 16:12–15), guiding (Rom. 8:14), assuring (Rom. 8:16), praying (Rom. 8:26), the exercise of spiritual gifts (1 Cor. 12:7), and warring against the flesh (Gal. 5:17). All of these depend for their full manifestation on the filling of the Spirit (Eph. 5:18).“ Balancing the Christian Life

„In the Hebrews passage three preventives are listed for a calloused Christian heart. The first is daily exhortation of one another (3:13).“ Balancing the Christian Life


„While this may simply be another way of saying that spirituality is Christian maturity, it tries to delineate more openly the factors of Spirit-control over a period of time.“ Balancing the Christian Life
