Favorite Pastors From Bible Quotes

1. "I am a pastor, and I teach and preach the Bible to my congregation every week. But the Bible is not a manufacturer's handbook. Neither is it a science textbook nor a guidebook for public policy."
Author: Adam Hamilton
2. "The Bible - it's sort of the other person in the room. There's this book, the reader, and the Bible."
Author: Anita Diament
3. "The North American Church is at a critical juncture. The gospel of grace is being confused and compromised by silence, seduction, and outright subversion. The vitality of the faith is being jeopardized. The lying slogans of the fixers who carry religion like a sword of judgment pile up with impunity. Let ragamuffins everywhere gather as a confessing Church to cry out in protest. Revoke the licenses of religious leaders who falsify the idea of God. Sentence them to three years in solitude with the Bible as their only companion."
Author: Brennan Manning
4. "The broader problem is that a great deal of popular preaching and teaching uses the bible as a pegboard on which to hang a fair bit of Christianized pop psychology or moralizing encouragement, with very little effort to teach the faithful, from the Bible, the massive doctrines of historic confessional Christianity."
Author: D.A. Carson
5. "The Holy Bible is an abyss. It is impossible to explain how profound it is, impossible to explain how simple it is."
Author: Ernest Hello
6. "Many Christians, including BioLogos, like to throw out the "you can't take the Bible literally" argument. They think it is the ultimate zinger that will end any debate in their favor. But if we shouldn't take the Bible literally, why should we believe God is real in the literal sense? Perhaps God is a metaphor also. Maybe God is really a metaphor for nature or chance. Heaven forbid! However, BioLogos insists on having it both ways: God is literally true but the Bible is not. That's like saying Mother Goose is literally true but her nursery rhymes are not."
Author: G.M. Jackson
7. "Anything that dims my vision of Christ, or takes away my taste for Bible study, or cramps my prayer life, or makes Christian work difficult, is wrong for me, and I must, as a Christian, turn away from it."
Author: J. Wilbur Chapman
8. "Man must have results, real results, in his inner and outer life. I do not mean the results which modern people strive after in their attempts at self-development. These are not results, but only rearrangements of psychic material, a process the Buddhists call 'samsara' and which our Holy Bible calls 'dust'."
Author: Jacob Needleman
9. "Wonderful," he said. "Tell me. Which books in the Bible do you favor?""Oh, I favors 'em all," Pa said. "But I mostly like Hezekiel, Ahab, Trotter, and Pontiff the Emperor."The Old Man frowned. "I don't recollect I have read those," he said."
Author: James McBride
10. "I go farther, and say, that it is plainly our duty to desire pastors and teachers to take the care of such congregations, and that God did raise up such in the church as we see it in the word."
Author: John Nelson Darby
11. "The logic of the Bible says: Act according to God's "will of command," not according to his "will of decree." God's "will of decree" is whatever comes to pass. "If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that" (James 4:15). God's "will of decree" ordained that his Son be betrayed (Luke 22:22), ridiculed (Isaiah 53:3), mocked (Luke 18:32), flogged (Matthew 20:19), forsaken (Matthew 26:31), pierced (John 19:37), and killed (Mark 9:31). But the Bible teaches us plainly that we should not betray, ridicule, mock, flog, forsake, pierce, or kill innocent people. That is God's "will of command." We do not look at the death of Jesus, clearly willed by God, and conclude that killing Jesus is good and that we should join the mockers."
Author: John Piper
12. "Many people visualize a God who sits comfortably on a distant throne, remote, aloof, uninterested, and indifferent to the needs of mortals, until, it may be, they can badger him into taking action on their behalf. Such a view is wholly false. The Bible reveals a God who, long before it even occurs to man to turn to him, while man is still lost in darkness and sunk in sin, takes the initiative, rises from his throne, lays aside his glory, and stoops to seek until he finds him."
Author: John R.W. Stott
13. "It is to be deeply regretted that the clergymen would oppose an effort to teach the people the Bible truths; nevertheless, we find much opposition everywhere, and many clergymen will attempt to prevent the people from reading what is here written."
Author: Joseph Franklin Rutherford
14. "She brought me closer to God than tensummers of Vacation Bible School."
Author: LaToya Hankins
15. "The Bible contains six admonishments to homosexuals and 362 admonishments to heterosexuals. That doesn't mean that God doesn't love heterosexuals. It's just that they need more supervision."
Author: Lynn Lavner
16. "A reporter asked Barth what was the single most important theological discovery he'd made. After stopping to consider his answer carefully, Barth said, "Jesus loves me. This I know, for the Bible tells me so." Indeed, we can never outgrow that one great, majestic, and simple transforming truth."
Author: Mark Driscoll
17. "I've known a lot of religious people. My mother is very religious, but she also is very private about it. When I was growing up, she never went to church. She just prayed and read her Bible and kept it to herself. I'm not from a background of flamboyant believers. It's much more a personal issue."
Author: Michael Shannon
18. "The Bible itself can be used for both good and evil. That doesn't mean it's flawed. It means that it is perfect."
Author: Northern Adams
19. "The Bible says that two cannot walk together unless they are agreed."
Author: Peter Akinola
20. "Down through the years, I turned to the Bible and found in it all that I needed"
Author: Ruth Bell Graham
21. "We got through all of Genesis and part of Exodus before I left. One of the main things I was taught from this was not to begin a sentence with And. I pointed out that most sentences in the Bible began with And, but I was told that English had changed since the time of King James. In that case, I argued, why make us read the Bible? But it was in vain. Robert Graves was very keen on the symbolism and mysticism in the Bible at that time."
Author: Stephen Hawking
22. "The Gita is a commentary on the Upanishads. The Upanishads are the Bible of India."
Author: Swami Vivekananda
23. "Even Jesus needed his human friends(Mark 14:32) And they went to a place called Gethsemane. And he said to his disciples, "Sit here while I pray."Many people believe that all you need is the Bible and Jesus to get through with life. And so we discount the need to be in each other's lives as we go through hard times."
Author: William P. Smith
