Slam-Dunk quotes from C.T. Studd

Strong stuff.
"We shall go crusading for Christ. We have the men, the means, and the ways—steam and electricity and iron have leveled the lands and bridged the seas. The doors of the world have opened wide for us by our God. We pray and preach; we bow the knee; we receive; we administer the Holy Communion of the Passion of Christ; we recite the Creed triumphantly; we are optimists everyone; we shout ‘Onward Christian soldiers, marching on to war,’ and then? . . . and then? . . . we whisper, ‘I pray Thee have me excused!!!’ What glorious humbugs we are!’

Here are some other great quotes: "To convince the world of the truth of Christioanity, it must first be convinced of sin.It is only sin that renders Christ intelligible." Andrew Murray "Tolerance is the virtue of those who have no convictions." G.K. Chesterton "Love will find a way.Indifference will find an excuse." Unknown "I think a good rule of thumb to follow would be to presume the Lord wants you to share the gospel with everyone unless He leads you not to." Danny Lehmann "Give me one hundred preachers who fear nothing but sin and desire nothing but God, and I care not a straw whether they be clergymen or laymen, such alone will shake the gates of hell and set up the kingdom of God upon earth." John Wesley "When we merely say that we are bad, the 'wrath' of God seems a barbarous doctrine;as soon as we perceive our badness, it appears inevitable, a mere corollary from God's goodness..." C.S.Lewis "The chief danger of the 20th century will be religion without the Holy Spirit, Christianity without Christ,forgiveness without repentance,salvation without regeneration, politics without God, and heaven without hell." William Booth "Scratching people where they itch and addressing their 'felt needs' is a strategem of the poor steward of the oracles of God. This was the recipe for success for the false prophets of the Old Testament." R.C. Sproul "A barracks is meant to be a place where real soldiers were to be fed and equipped for war, not a place to settle down in or as a comfortable snuggery in which to enjoy ourselves. I hope that if ever they, our soldiers, do settle down God will burn their barracks over their heads!" Catherine Booth "When people inquire as to the revelance of our gospel, we must not br tricked into going on the defensive. We must immediately take the offensive,for our Lord Himself has promised that the gates of hell shall not with stand the assault of His Church" Dr. Leighton Ford
