Arthur W Pink Quotes

"All Scripture is profitable first for "doctrine"! The same order is observed throughout the Epistles, particularly in the great doctrinal treatises of the apostle Paul. Read the Epistle of "Romans" and it will be found that there is not a single admonition in the first five chapters. In the Epistle of "Ephesians" there are no exhortations till the fourth chapter is reached. The order is first doctrinal exposition and then admonition or exhortation for the regulation of the daily walk."

She is still a prisoner of her childhood; attempting to create a new life, she reencounters the trauma." - Author: Judith Lewis Herman

Quotes About My Sons Father

"On the last good day he went to work for three hours and then came home and put on the History Channel. The program was about the Airstream RV.

The native tribes came up the the RVs and poked at them with their spears. They prayed for the beasts to leave.On the last good day, my father didnt fall asleep while he was watching the show.
