A Changeless Understanding of Faith…

Not having anything good to blog, I thought I’d post some quotes that my buddy Dan Ledford emailed me.


A.B. Simpson (founder of the Christian & Missionary Alliance) said, “The larger the God we know, the larger will be our faith. The secret of power in our lives is to know God and expect great things from him.”

A.W. Tozer said, “Faith in faith is faith astray.”

A.W. Tozer: “Faith never means gullibility. The man who believes everything is as far from God as the man who refuses to believe anything.” Tozer also said, “Without faith it is impossible to please God, but not all faith pleases God.”

A.W. Tozer said, “Every man lives by faith, the nonbeliever as well as the saint; the one by faith in natural laws and the other by faith in God.”

  1. It takes more faith to believe that there isn’t a God than to believe that there is.

    “I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: ‘I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept His claim to be God.’ That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic — on the level with the man who says he is a poached egg — or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God: or else a madman or something worse. You can shut Him up for a fool, you can spit at Him and kill Him as a demon; or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.” – C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity,
