This will be an ongoing collection of what I believe to be wisdom in a wide variety of things by a wide variety of authors or speakers that I have read or heard arranged alphabetically by subject. Many of them will come from notes I have acquired over the years.
Acceptance or Rejection
"Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets." Jesus
"When people reject Christ they reject God and until their conversation accept Hell and damnation for their portion or inheritance." - Unknown -
Action and Idleness
"Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep: So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth, and thy want as an armed man." - Proverbs 6:10-11 -
"Don't go to church to get the fire. Take it with you." - Unknown -
Christianity and Socialism Compared
"Socialism is the antithesis of Christianity. Socialism is filled with elitists and Christianity is the faith of servants.
Socialism is filled with submission to man. Christianity is submission to the God/man - Jesus Christ.
The socialist lives under strong delusion. Christians are taught by the Holy Spirit who deals only in truth.
Socialism will die with time and it's fall will be a blip on the radar of eternity. Those who die advocating socialism will suffer the wrath of a holy God forever. Christianity will stand forever and its adherents will live on in the presence of the absolute ruler of the universe in joy and peace forever."

Faith or Doubt
"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for; the evidence of things not seen." - Hebrews 11:1 -
Faith is not a conscious thing. It springs from a personal relationship and is the unconscious result of believing someone." - Oswald Chambers -
"Faith is dead to doubts, dumb to discouragement, blind to impossibilities, knows nothing but success, lifts its hands up through the threatening clouds, lays hold of him who has all power in heaven and on earth. Faith makes the uplook good, the outlook bright, the inlook favorable and the future glorious." - Unknown -
God's Call On Your Life
"Many times God speaks to us at the most inconvenient times." - Pastor John Janesta -
"God has given me a lot to do. I am so far behind that I will never die." - Unknown -

Our Use or Abuse Of Time

In attitude of prayer so true

Your very soul is praying too."
