Bible Quotes

November 30, 2011

“More favorite, famous, most popular and best quotes about the Bible” – Ethan Holub

Odd, the way the less the Bible is read the more it is translated. –C.S. Lewis

The human qualities of the raw materials show through. Naivety, error, contradiction, even (as in the cursing Psalms) wickedness are not removed. The total result is not “the Word of God” in the sense that every passage in itself, gives impeccable science or history. It carries the Word of God. –C.S Lewis

If you don’t live by a Voice you will fashion a god in your own image. You will take His Word and dissect it, to make it speak what you want it to say.– John Enslow

Voltaire expected that within fifty years of his lifetime there would not be one Bible in the world. His house is now a distribution center for Bibles in many languages. –Corrie Ten Boom

There are more sure marks of authenticity in the Bible than in any profane history.– Sir Isaac Newton

When you are reading a book in a dark room, and come to a difficult part, you take it to a window to get more light. So take your Bibles to Christ. –Robert Murray M’Cheyne

The devil can quote Scriptures and so can his ministers and they can quote them in perfect King James English. –Gary Amirault

Just because the Bible says something doesn’t make it truth if what you are saying from the Bible is slanted, distorted, mis-applied, or merely the letter of the word. –J. Preston Eby

Too often we see the Bible through whatever lens we get from our culture. –Brian McLaren

The Bible itself is intolerant, and true followers of God’s word should be as well.– Bob Jones III, president of Bob Jones University

Sink the Bible to the bottom of the ocean, and still man’s obligations to God would be unchanged. He would have the same path to tread, only his lamp and guide would be gone; the same voyage to make, but his chart and compass would be overboard! –Henry Ward Beecher

I am much afraid that schools will prove to be the great gates of hell unless they diligently labor in explaining the Holy Scriptures, engraving them in the hearts of youth. I advise no one to place his child where the scriptures do not reign paramount. –Martin Luther

One of these days some simple soul will pick up the Book of God, read it, and believe it. Then the rest of us will be embarrassed. –Leonard Ravenhill

If we move in the direction of biblial absolutism (“the religion of the Book”), how can we escape turning the New Testament into a Christian Torah and the gospel into a new law? Once we do that, religious fascism with all its sectarian ugliness cannot be far away. Far better a mistaken Christian (a heretic) who has somehow caught the Spirit of Christ, than an orthodox Protestant who thinks that the Spirit is mediated to him through the letter of correct theology. –Robert D. Brinsmead

To preach the Bible as ‘the handbook for life,’ or as the answer to every question, rather than as the revelation of Christ, is to turn the Bible into an entirely different book. This is how the Pharisees approached Scripture, as we can see clearly from the questions they asked Jesus. For the Pharisees, the Scriptures were a source of trivia for life’s dilemmas. –Michael Horton

The Bible is to me the most precious thing in the world just because it tells me the story of Jesus.– George MacDonald

The Bible is not an end in itself, but a means to bring men to an intimate and satisfying knowledge of God, that they may enter into Him, that they may delight in His Presence, may taste and know the inner sweetness of the very God Himself in the core and center of their hearts.– A. W. Tozer

Christ is the Word of God. It is not in certain texts written in the New Testament, valuable as they are; it is not in certain words which Jesus spoke, vast as is their preciousness; it is in the Word, which Jesus is, that the great manifestation of God is made. –Phillips Brooks

The Word of God is a Person. When you read it, do you see words or do you see Him? –Jacquelyn K. Heasley

To understand the Book in real perception, it’s necessary to know the Author before you read His Book. To truly KNOW Jesus as He is, we MUST know Him in experience. –Martha Kilpatrick

Knowing the Word of God does not necessarily mean that we know the God of the Word. –Chip Brogden

Shift from your mind conquering the Bible, down into surrender to the Spirit of God who will whisper to you what He meant by what He wrote. –Martha Kilpatrick
