Quotes

Some of my favourite quotes…

  • When I was young, I was sure of many things; now there are only two things of which I am sure: one is that I am a miserable sinner; and the other, that Christ is an all-sufficient Savior.—He is well taught who learns these two lessons. John Newton

 

  • Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what you believe. St. Augustine

 

  • “Canon 2: Likewise it has been decided that whoever says that infants fresh from their mother’s wombs should not be Baptized …let him be anathema.” (Council of Carthage, AD 418)

 

  • “our Lord Jesus received and embraced gently the children who were presented to Him… If it is a reasonable thing to do to bring children to Jesus Christ, why is it not lawful to receive them in baptism, which is the external sign by which Jesus Christ makes know to us the communion which we have in him? If the kingdom of heaven belongs to them, why deny them the sign by which we are given practically an entrance into the church, to declare that we are heirs of the kingdom of God?” – John Calvin

 

  • “When you are about to enter theology, seek not out the very reasons of His nature (for that the human mind, or that of any other creature, is incapable of finding); scan rather in so far as possible, the things about Him: for instance, His eternity, His immensity and infinity, His goodness and wisdom and power that makes, governs, and judges His creatures. For among men he truly is a great theologian who searches out these reasons, be it ever so little.” – St. Maximus The Confessor

 

  • My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world. 1 John 2:1
