Quotes from The Almost Christian:   Leave a comment

“Common knowledge is that which floats in the head but does not influence the heart.”

“No man was ever kept out of heaven for his confessed badness, though many are kept out of heaven for their supposed goodness.”

“The ground of many a man’s engaging in religion is the trouble of his conscience, and the end of his continuing in religion is the quieting of conscience.”

“It is a great deceit to measure the substance of our religion by the bulk of our profession, and to judge of the strength of our graces by the length of our duties.”

“There are two things very hard: one is to take the shame of our sins to ourselves, the other is to give the glory of our services to Christ.”
