“God is not reluctant; man is resistant.”

“The deep things of God are Jesus Christ; there is nothing deeper.”

“We need to be willing to be the answer to our own prayers. Often, the answer is us.”

“Don’t try to mix God’s wisdom with man’s foolishness.”

“Don’t look for the ‘flavor of the month’ preachers.”

“Man is not evolving, he is devolving.”

“Every person who gets saved puts us one person closer to the coming of Christ.”

“The gospel is unbelievable except for the fact that it is true.”

“Today, there is much acknowledging in the head without confession in the heart.”

“There are three ‘musts’ in John 3: You must be born again. The Son of Man must be lifted up. He must increase and I must decrease.”

“Don’t move a fence until you find out why somebody put it there.”

“If you can’t preach it in a Third World country it’s probably not the gospel.”

“Easter is one of the last remaining moments in America when people think about God.”
