  5. “..there is need for a person to be generally educated. Otherwise, you shrivel up much too soon. Whether this means reading the bible (I read the New Testament every few years) or reading the great 19th century novelists (the greatest and shrewdest judge of people and of society who ever lived), or classical philosophy (which I cannot read-it puts me to sleep immediately), or history (which is secondary). What matters is that the knowledge worker, by the time he or she reaches middle age, has developed and nourished a human being rather than a tax accountant or a hydraulic engineer.” ~ Peter Drucker
  6. “It is the fable of Jesus Christ, as told in the New Testament, and the wild and visionary doctrine raised thereon, against which I contend. The story, taking it as it is told, is blasphemously obscene.” ~ Thomas Paine

In other words if we are looking for common ground, can we find it in mystical spirituality, even if we cannot theologically agree, Can we pray together in such a way that we connect with a God that transcends our theological differences?” ~ Tony Campolo , New Testament quotes about love
  10. “Gary Burnetts office is shelved with theological books, guitars fill the floor, and the drawers are crammed with CDs. In The Gospel According to the Blues, Gary brings his vocation as a New Testament teacher together with his passion for the blues and gives the reader scholarly knowledge and wise insight.” ~ Steve Stockman
  11. “If the Holy Bible was printed as an Ace Double it would be cut down to two 20,000-word halves with the Old Testament retitled as ‘Master of Chaos’ and the New Testament as ‘The Thing With Three Souls.” ~ Terry Carr
  12. “The New Testament preaches a Christ who was dead and is alive, not a Christ who was alive and is dead.” ~ James Denney

  13. “Richard [Carrier] takes the extremist position that Jesus of Nazareth never even existed, that there was no such person in history. This is a position that is so extreme that to call it marginal would be an understatement; it doesn’t even appear on the map of contemporary New Testament scholarship.” ~ William Lane Craig
  14. “The New Testament writers did not invent a doctrine of Scripture they inherited it.” ~ D. A. Carson

  20. “It is not a word too much to say that the New Testament abounds with errors.” ~ Dean Alford

  21. “The fear of loss is an engine of horrors, but also a source of the greatest forms of heroism. There’s not a lot of art that puts that in bold letters. It’s psychologically very interesting and acute, I think. That’s not the central reading, I think, of the New Testament.” ~ Cass Sunstein
  22. “Man shall not live by bread alone.” ~ Matthew McConaughey
  23. “In the beginning was the word, and it was spoken.” ~ N. Scott Momaday

  27. “Someone’s always calling for my resignation. It’s nothing new. It’s something that’s been part of my tenure at Exodus over the last decade-plus. So he can add his voice to the chorus of others whether it’s gay activists or now a New Testament professor.” ~ Alan Chambers
  28. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was Gotcha!” ~ Attila the Stockbroker

  29. “If we compare the present state of the New Testament text with that of any other ancient writing, we must… declare it to be marvelously correct. Such has been the care with which the New Testament has been copied – a care which has doubtless grown out of true reverence for its holy words…. The New Testament is unrivaled among ancient writings in the purity of its text as actually transmitted and kept in use.” ~ B. B. Warfield
  30. “Since ancient times the term awakening has been used as a kind of metaphor that points to the transformation of human consciousness. There are parables in the New Testament that speak of the importance of being awake, of not falling back to sleep.” ~ Eckhart Tolle
  31. “According to the New Testament, the church is primarily a body of people who profess and give evidence that they have been saved by God’s grace alone, for His glory alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone.” ~ Mark Dever
  32. “The incarnation is in itself an unfathomable mystery, but it makes sense of everything else that the New Testament contains.” ~ J. I. Packer

  35. “Has the word propitiation any place in your Christianity?  In the faith of the New Testament, it is central.  The love of God, the taking of human form by the Son, the meaning of the cross, Christ’s heavenly intercession, the way of salvation-all are to be explained in terms of it and any explanation from which the thought of propitiation is missing will be incomplete, and indeed actually misleading, by New Testament standards” ~ J. I. Packer
  36. “I believe that there is one only living and true God, existing in three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. . . . that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are a revelation from God. . . . that God did send His own Son to become man, die in the room and stead of sinners, and thus to lay a foundation for the offer of pardon and salvation to all mankind so as all may be saved who are willing to accept the Gospel offer.” ~ Roger Sherman
  37. “There is nobody of ancient literature in the world which enjoys such a wealth of good textual attestation as the New Testament.” ~ F. F. Bruce

  38. “It has been said that in the New Testament doctrine is grace, and ethics is gratitude; and something is wrong with any form of Christianity in which, experimentally and practically, this saying is not being verified. Those who suppose that the doctrine of God’s grace tends to encourage moral laxity are simply showing that, in the most literal sense, they do not know what they are talking about. For love awakens love in return; and love, once awakened, desires to give pleasure.” ~ J. I. Packer
  39. “The variant readings about which any doubt remains among textual critics of the New Testament affect no material question of historic fact or of Christian faith and practice” ~ F. F. Bruce
  40. “And if the New Testament were a collection of secular writings, their authenticity would generally be regarded as beyond all doubt” ~ F. F. Bruce
  41. “One thing must be emphatically stated. The New Testament books did not become authoritative for the Church because they were formally included in a canonical list; on the contrary, the Church included them in her canon because she already regarded them as divinely inspired, recognizing their innate worth and generally apostolic authority, direct or indirect.” ~ F. F. Bruce
  42. “The task of the church is twofold: to spread Christianity throughout the world and to make sure that the Christianity she spreads is the pure New Testament kind.” ~ Aiden Wilson Tozer

  43. “The religion of both Old and New Testaments is marked by fervent outspoken testimonies against evil. To speak smooth things in such a case may be sentimentalism, but it is not Christianity. It is a betrayal of the cause of truth and righteousness.” ~ Charles Spurgeon
  44. “The fact is that we are not producing saints. We are making converts to an effete type of Christianity, that bears little resemblance to that of the New Testament. The average so-called Bible Christian of our times is but a shallow display of true sainthood. Yet, we put millions of dollars behind ‘movements’ to perpetuate this lower form of religion and attack the man who dares to challenge the wisdom of it.” ~ Aiden Wilson Tozer
  45. “It is useless for large companies of believers to spend long hours begging God to send revival. Unless we intend to reform we may as well not pray. Unless praying men have the insight and faith to amend their whole way of life to conform to the New Testament pattern there can be no true revival.” ~ Aiden Wilson Tozer
  46. “Instead of looking at books and pictures about the New Testament, I looked at the New Testament. There I found an account, not in the least of a person with his hair parted in the middle of his hands clasped in appeal, but of an extraordinary being with lips of thunder and acts of lurid decision, flinging down tables, casting out devils, passing with the wild secrecy of the wind from mountain isolation to a sort of dreadful demagogy; a being who often acted like an angry god — and always like a god.” ~ Gilbert K. Chesterton
  47. “In the New Testament church it says they were all amazed – And now in our churches, everybody wants to be amused.” ~ Leonard Ravenhill

  48. “I’m a New Testament Christian. I reject and throw out titles. I’m not a fundamentalist, though I’m fundamental in all of my doctrine. I’m not an evangelical, because that means that I exclude the Catholics and main-liners, and Orthodox. I’m a believer who loves Jesus and I work with everybody else whatever their denomination; Catholic, Orthodox, charismatic, mainline, evangelicals, anyone who loves Jesus.” ~ Bill Bright
  49. Holiness is not to love Jesus and do whatever you want. Holiness is to love God and do what He wants.” ~ C. Wagner
  50. “You must every day make higher ground. You must deny yourself to make progress with God. You must refuse everything that is not pure and holy. God wants you pure in heart. He wants you to have an intense desire after holiness… Two things will get you to leap out of yourselves into the promises of God today. One is purity, and the other is FAITH, which is kindled more and more BY PURITY.” ~ Smith Wigglesworth
  51. “The fear of punishment, the desire of reward, the sense of duty, are all useful arguments, in their way, to persuade people to holiness. But they are all weak and powerless until a person loves Christ.” ~ J. C. Ryle

  52. “It is an undoubted truth that every doctrine that comes from God, leads to God; and that which doth not tend to promote holiness is not of God.” ~ George Whitefield
  53. “A god who is all love, all grace, all mercy, no sovereignty, no justice, no holiness, and no wrath is an idol.” ~ R. C. Sproul , New Testament quotes about justice
  54. “Whatever call a man may pretend to have, if he has not been called to holiness, he certainly has not been called to the ministry.” ~ Charles Spurgeon

  55. “Holiness is not merely a feeling, state of mind, or good intention. It involves practical separation from sin and real separation unto God.” ~ Paul Washer
  56. “I would sooner be holy than happy if the two things could be divorced. Were it possible for a man always to sorrow and yet to be pure, I would choose the sorrow if I might win the purity, for to be free from the power of sin, to be made to love holiness, is true happiness.” ~ Charles Spurgeon
  57. “God is not going to negotiate His holiness… in order to accommodate us.” ~ R. C. Sproul

  58. “There is no shortcut to holiness; it must be the business of our whole lives.” ~ William Wilberforce
  59. “How little people know who think that holiness is dull… When one meets the real thing, it’s irresistible!” ~ C. S. Lewis
  60. “Holiness is the habit of being of one mind with God, according as we find His mind described in Scripture. It is the habit of agreeing in God’s judgment, hating what He hates, loving what He loves, and measuring everything in this world by the standard of His Word.” ~ J. C. Ryle
  61. “You know, we live in a day when we are more afraid of holiness than we are of sinfulness.” ~ Leonard Ravenhill
  62. “Holiness has never been the driving force of the majority. It is, however, mandatory for anyone who wants to enter the kingdom.” ~ Elisabeth Elliot

  63. “If you think you can walk in holiness without keeping up perpetual fellowship with Christ, you have made a great mistake. If you would be holy, you must live close to Jesus.” ~ Charles Spurgeon
  64. “God has one destined end for mankind – holiness! His one aim is the production of saints. God is not an eternal blessing machine for men. He did not come to save men out of pity. He came to save men because He had created them to be holy.” ~ Oswald Chambers
  65. “No one will be offended if we tell them that they are good people who could be a little better. The offense comes when we tell them that they – and we – are ungodly people who cannot impress God or escape his tribunal. Until our preaching of the law has exposed our hearts and God’s holiness at that profound level, our hearers will never flee to Christ alone for safety even if they come to us for advice.” ~ Michael Horton
