Wisdom of the Ages – John Gresham Machen

It is when men have felt compelled to take a stand against error that they have risen to the really great heights in the celebration of the truth

Wisdom of the Ages

“Again, men tell us that our preaching should be positive and not negative, that we can preach the truth without attacking error. But if we follow that advice we shall have to close our Bible and desert its teachings. The New Testament is a polemic book almost from beginning to end … It is when men have felt compelled to take a stand against error that they have risen to the really great heights in the celebration of the truth”
– John Gresham Machen

Wisdom of the Ages – John Knox

Wisdom of the Ages

“As touching nature I am a worm of this earth, and yet a subject of this commonwealth; but as touching the office wherein it has pleased God to place me, I am a watchman… For that reason I am bound in conscience to blow the trumpet publicly.”
– John Knox
