Sept.25“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path”–Psalm 119:105.

“The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God stands forever”–Isaiah 40:8.

“After more than 60 years of almost daily reading of the Bible, I never fail to find it always new and marvelously in tune with the changing needs of every day”–Cecil B. DeMille.

“The Bible grows more beautiful as we grow in our understanding of it”–Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.

“I account the Scriptures of God the most sublime philosophy”–Isaac Newton.

“The one use of the Bible is to make us look at Jesus, that through Him we might know His Father and our Father, His God and our God”– George MacDonald.

“The Word of God hidden in the heart is a stubborn voice to suppress”–Billy Graham.

“The greatest proof that the Bible is inspired is that it has stood so much bad preaching”–A.T.  Robertson.

“To preach the Bible as “the handbook for life,” or as the answer to every question, rather than the revelation of Christ, is to turn the Bible into an entirely different book. This is how the Pharisees approached Scripture, however, as we can see clearly from the questions they asked Jesus… For the Pharisees, the Scriptures were a source of trivia for life’s dilemmas”–Michael Horton.

“It is impossible for me to recant unless I am proved to be wrong by the testimony of Scripture. My conscience is bound to the Word of God”–Martin Luther.
