Literalists Of The Bible quotes by John W. Gardner
#1. One of my less pleasant chores when I was young was to read the Bible from one end to the other. Reading the Bible straight through is at least 70 percent discipline, like learning Latin. But the good parts are, of course, simply amazing. God is an extremely uneven writer, but when He's good, nobody can touch Him. #Quote by John W. Gardner
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by H.L. Mencken
#2. For the Bible, despite all its contradictions and absurdities, its barbarisms and obscenities, remains grand and gaudy stuff, and so it deserves careful study and enlightened exposition. It is not only lovely in phrase; it is also rich in ideas, many of them far from foolish. One somehow gathers the notion that it was written from end to end by honest men - inspired, perhaps, but nevertheless honest. When they had anything to say they said it plainly, whether it was counsel that enemies be slain or counsel that enemies be kissed. They knew how to tell a story, and how to sing a song, and how to swathe a dubious argument in specious and disarming words. #Quote by H.L. Mencken
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
#3. The deceit, the lie of the Devil consists of this, that he wishes to
make man believe that he can live without God's Word. #Quote by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by Echo Brown
#4. I begin to wonder if her Bible-thumping Jesus-loving is an act to provide her with the illusion of certainty and stability in the world. Deep down, if she has sat on the ceiling before, she must know there are other ways, other truths, other powers. My mother runs from this power and these truths with the alcohol and the white rocks. Ms. Jannie runs with her Jesus and a religion she knows is not always the answer. Right now, she knows it is not the answer. #Quote by Echo Brown
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by Charles L. Grant
#5. The cover was pebbled black leather, the pages onionskin, and he opened it carefully. It was his first Bible, the one his mother had given him, the one that had taken its time showing him what he was supposed to do with his life, his size, that voice of his. It was the one used for his ordination, and when he had buried his mother on a autumn hillside in Tennesee five years ago. King James. He didn't care about the scholars or the accuracy or the bringing of his church into whatever century they claimed it was these days; he cared about the poetry, and about the comfort it brought to those who needed to hear it. #Quote by Charles L. Grant
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by Joan Ball
#6. Jesus is no genie in a lamp. All the happy thoughts and positive thinking in the world will not keep life from being life. I've come to believe that, as big risks offer the potential for great reward or great failure, the biggest waves bring the swiftest undertow. As I learned to accept this principle rather than fight it, a deeper understanding of the call to perseverance, which appears so frequently in the Bible, emerged. As I learned to persevere, something mysterious began to happen: the more difficult things became, the deeper I looked at myself, sought God's guidance, and let go. It is like the scripture that reads, "And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; and hope does not disappoint because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us. #Quote by Joan Ball
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by Henry Allen Ironside
#7. Godliness has 'promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.' But the only way one can enter into godliness is by turning to God as a repentant sinner and receiving the Saviour He has provided in the Gospel. Therefore the crying need of our degenerate times is for a revival of true old-fashioned, Christ- centered, Bible preaching that will call upon all men everywhere to repent in view of that coming day when God will judge the world in righteousness by His Risen Son. #Quote by Henry Allen Ironside
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by Felix Wantang
#8. We have created Black, White, Asian, and other racial Churches; but we fail to understand that there is only one Church and one Gospel.It is the Church and Gospel of Jesus Christ. John 1:12 #Quote by Felix Wantang
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by Robert Charles Wilson
#9. Personally, I don't believe in anything more supernatural than what you read about in the Bible, and I only believe that one day out of seven. #Quote by Robert Charles Wilson
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
#10. I simply go with what works. And what works is the healthy skepticism embodied in the scientific method. Believe me, if the Bible had ever been shown to be a rich source of scientific answers and enlightenment, we would be mining it daily for cosmic discovery. #Quote by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by Edward McKendree Bounds
#11. Bible revelations are not against reason but above reason, for the uses of faith, man's highest faculty. #Quote by Edward McKendree Bounds
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by Pat Robertson
#12. Planned Parenthood is teaching kids to fornicate, teaching people to have adultery, every kind of bestiality, homosexuality, lesbianism - everything that the Bible condemns. #Quote by Pat Robertson
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by Francis Crick
#13. A knowledge of the true age of the Earth and of the fossil record makes it impossible for any balanced intellect to believe in the literal truth of every part of the Bible in the way that fundamentalists do. #Quote by Francis Crick
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by Walter Kirn
#14. Every generation looks at literature through the lens of their own experience, but with the Bible, everyone gets apprehensive and thinks it'll be too stuffy. #Quote by Walter Kirn
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by J.C. Ryle
#15. Let us resolve to talk more to believers about the Bible when we meet them. Alas, the conversation of Christians, when they do meet, is often sadly unprofitable! How many frivolous, and trifling, and uncharitable things are said! Let us bring out the Bible more, and it will help to drive the devil away, and keep our hearts in tune. Oh, that we may all strive so to walk together in this evil world; that Jesus may often draw near, and go with us, as He went with the two disciples journeying to Emmaus! #Quote by J.C. Ryle
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by Cathleen Falsani
#16. Jesus must have had man hands. He was a carpenter, the Bible tells us. I know a few carpenters, and they have great hands, all muscled and worn, with nicks and callused pads from working wood together with hardware and sheer willpower. In my mind, Jesus isn't a slight man with fair hair and eyes who looks as if a strong breeze could knock him down, as he is sometimes depicted in art and film. I see him as sturdy, with a thick frame, powerful legs, and muscular arms. He has a shock of curly black hair and an untrimmed beard, his face tanned and lined from working in the sun. And his hands - hands that pounded nails, sawed lumber, drew in the dirt, and held the children he beckoned to him. Hands that washed his disciples' feet, broke bread for them, and poured their wine. Hands that hauled a heavy cross through the streets of Jerusalem and were later nailed to it. Those were some man hands. #Quote by Cathleen Falsani
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by Nina Gunter
#17. If you take missions out of the Bible, you won't have anything left but the covers. #Quote by Nina Gunter
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by Ravi Zacharias
#18. Love is a commitment that will be tested in the most vulnerable areas of spirituality, a commitment that will force you to make some very difficult choices. It is a commitment that demands that you deal with your lust, your greed, your pride, your power, your desire to control, your temper, your patience, and every area of temptation that the Bible clearly talks about. It demands the quality of commitment that Jesus demonstrates in His relationship to us. #Quote by Ravi Zacharias
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by Tim LaHaye
#19. But when you take the Bible literally, for what it says, you have to come back to the fact that there is only one way of salvation; there's only one Savior. #Quote by Tim LaHaye
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by Hugh Ross
#20. [The evidence from cosmology] determines that the cause of the universe is functionally equivalent to the God of the Bible, a Being beyond the matter, energy, space, and time of the cosmos. #Quote by Hugh Ross
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by L.E. Green
#21. It is through our communion with the Holy Spirit that we are able to apprehend the things that God has given us, through our union with Jesus Christ. If you haven't taken the time to invite Him in, I advise you to do so now . Begin by seeking God specifically concerning marriage. Ask Him to prepare and position you, so that when it is time, you will be found in the right place, doing the work of God. Believe in His willingness to guide you. Trust in His wisdom and power in bringing His promises to pass. Ask Him to 'speak on' concerning your mate and your future. You may be surprised at how eager He is to answer. #Quote by L.E. Green
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by Tony Campolo
#22. So after the Lewinsky scandal, everything changed, and we moved from using the Bible to address the moral issues of our time, which were social, to moral issues of our time that were very personal. I have continued that relationship up until the present. #Quote by Tony Campolo
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by Peter Enns
#23. What makes the Bible God's Word isn't its uncanny historical accuracy, as some insist, but the sacred experiences these stories point to, beyond the words themselves. Watching these ancient pilgrims work through their faith, even wrestling with how they did that, models for us our own journeys of seeking to know God better and commune with him more deeply. #Quote by Peter Enns
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by Danielle Trussoni
#24. If people start pulling away the stereotypes of what angels are instead of these fluffy, teddy-bear kinds of angels, then they'll see, historically, that they were terrifying in some depictions. In the Bible, from what I remember, often the reaction to angels is one of terror. #Quote by Danielle Trussoni
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by Sam Harris
#25. To speak plainly and truthfully about the state of our world - to say, for instance, that the Bible and the Koran both contain mountains of life-destroying gibberish - is antithetical to tolerance as moderates currently conceive it. But we can no longer afford the luxury of such political correctness. We must finally recognize the price we are paying to maintain the iconography of our ignorance. #Quote by Sam Harris
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by Corrie Ten Boom
#26. Voltaire expected that within fifty years of his lifetime there would not be one Bible in the world. His house is now a distribution centre for Bibles in many languages. #Quote by Corrie Ten Boom
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by R.A. Torrey
#27. Every type of destruction that human philosophy, human science, human reason, human art, human cunning, human force, and human brutality could bring to bear against this Book, and yet the Bible stands absolutely unshaken today. At times almost all the wise and great of the earth have been pitted against the Bible, and only an obscure few for it. Yet it has stood. #Quote by R.A. Torrey
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by Tony Campolo
#28. I think there are other issues that the Democrats could use to rally evangelicals. There are a lot of us, for instance, who believe that the Bible calls us to be environmentally responsible. #Quote by Tony Campolo
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by Colleen Luntzel
#29. Your words and deeds are seeds, scattered in the wind ... the seeds are light or darkness ... they'll break apart or mend ... Sow light instead of gloom. Sow faith instead of doubt. Sow truth and love, and hope, and peace. Sow light and darkness rout. #Quote by Colleen Luntzel
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by Nas
#30. I'm a storyteller and the Bible is a bunch of stories about life and things that took place here on planet earth. It's a great example to use and a great reason to be happy about being a storyteller because the lessons of the land are always in stories. #Quote by Nas
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by William Tyndale
#31. The preaching of God's word is hateful and contrary unto them. Why? For it is impossible to preach Christ, except thou preach against antichrist; that is to say, them which with their false doctrine and violence of sword enforce to quench the true doctrine of Christ. #Quote by William Tyndale
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by Jeffrey Eugenides
#32. Like the Sun Belt or the Bible Belt, there exists, on this multifarious earth of ours, a Hair Belt. #Quote by Jeffrey Eugenides
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by James Rozoff
#33. Technology is the idol of our age. The Bible describes the evils of worshipping things built by the hand of man. Back then, it was a simple statue, today it is far more insidious. And for every problem technology creates, we look to technology for solutions. #Quote by James Rozoff
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by Charles Stanley
#34. God wants you to understand the Word of God. The Bible is not a mystery book. It's not a book of philosophy. It's a book of truth that explains the attitude and heart of almighty God. #Quote by Charles Stanley
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by Bill Hybels
#35. It helps certain church leaders identify the fact that they have the spiritual gift of leadership that the Bible talks about in Romans 12:8. Once you understand that God has given a gift, then training becomes more seriously. When you receive better training, you become more effective in the leadership position that God has assigned to you. #Quote by Bill Hybels
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by David Berg
#36. One of the most beautiful verses in the Bible about Heaven is in the 21st chapter of Revelation, the fourth verse. John says, And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. #Quote by David Berg
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by Robin Jones Gunn
#37. There are 365 "fear nots" in the Bible. One for every day of the year. Today I will fear not. #Quote by Robin Jones Gunn
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by Felix Wantang
#38. When we look at life through the eyes of Jesus Christ, it is absolutely impossible to see any obstacles. Matthew 11:28-30. #Quote by Felix Wantang
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by Anya VonderLuft
#39. Just like a person has five senses, the Scripture also has Five Senses. First, there is the historical sense of Scripture. Second, there is a doctrinal sense of Scripture. Third, there is a prophetic sense of Scripture, fourth, there is a philosophical sense to Scripture, fifth, and there is a mystical sense to Scripture where events and persons symbolize truth. The Common Man is incapable of coming to the Scriptures and perceiving what is in it. We must have Grace given to us by Christ in order to understand the Bible. #Quote by Anya VonderLuft
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by Mary Griffith
#40. If no one had ever challenged religious authority, there'd be no democracy, no public schools, women's rights, improvements to science and medicine, evolution of slavery and no laws against child abuse or spousal abuse. I was afraid to challenge my religious beliefs because that was the basis of creation - mine anyway. I was afraid to question the Bible or anything in it, and when I did, that's when I became involved with PFLAG and realized that my son was a perfectly normal human being and there was nothing for God to heal because Bobby was perfect just the way he was. #Quote by Mary Griffith
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by Luis Marques
#41. An Asetian never tries to talk louder than the crowd surrounding him. An Asetian becomes that crowd. #Quote by Luis Marques
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by Thomas Paine
#42. Whence arose all the horrid assassinations of whole nations of men, women, and infants, with which the Bible is filled; and the bloody persecutions, and tortures unto death, and religiosu wars, that since that time have laid Europe in blood and ashes; whence arose they, but from this impious thing called religion, and this monstrous belief that God has spoken to man? #Quote by Thomas Paine
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#43. Some of his authors were so mulishly stubborn about altering their own work, one would think he had suggested changing text in the Bible. Amanda was easy to work with, and she did not harbor great pretensions about herself or her writing. In fact, she was relatively modest about her talents, to the extent of appearing surprised and uncomfortable when he praised her.
The plot of 'Unfinished Lady' centered on a young woman who tried to live strictly according to society's rules, yet couldn't make herself accept the rigid confinement of what was considered proper. She made fatal errors in her private life- gambling, taking a lover outside of marriage, having a child out of wedlock- all due to her desire to obtain the elusive happiness she secretly longed for.
Eventually she came to a sordid end, dying of venereal disease, although it was clear that society's harsh judgements had caused her demise fully as much as disease. What fascinated Jack was that Amanda, as the author, had refused to take a position on the heroine's behavior, neither applauding nor condemning it. Clearly she had sympathy for the character, and Jack suspected that the heroine's inner rebelliousness reflected some of Amanda's own feelings. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by Denise Hildreth Jones
#44. That's part of Jesus' point, that we all have sin in us. But he was also saying that sin begins and ends with the heart. Actually, that idea runs throughout the entire Bible. As a man 'thinks in his heart, so is he.' 'Out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.' In other words, what is in us is going to come out of us. And 'above all else, guard your heart.' Do you hear that, Zach? Out of everything we do, protecting our hearts is the most important thing.
We've got to guard them especially from anything that could come in and set up a lie about our God. Anything. I mean, even doing my work - and I'm a pastor - could convince me that God needs me in some way. That would be the perfect way for the enemy to set me up to wear myself out and shut myself down. And it would all start with a lie. The devil will try to convince us of anything - he's the father of lies, remember. And that is why we have to guard our hearts so carefully. #Quote by Denise Hildreth Jones

#45. anyone who says, 'You fool!' will be in danger of the fire of hell. #Quote by Anonymous
Literalists Of The Bible quotes by J.D. Salinger
#46. I felt like praying or something, when I was in bed, but I couldn't do it. I can't always pray when I feel like it. In the first place, I'm sort of an atheist. I like Jesus and all, but I don't care too much for most of the other stuff in the Bible. Take the Disciples, for instance. They annoy the hell out of me, if you want to know the truth. They were all right after Jesus was dead and all, but while He was alive, they were about as much use to Him as a hole in the head. All they did was keep letting Him down. #Quote by J.D. Salinger
