Quotes on the Bible by Sam Jones - Old Time Methodist  - Good stuff

Common English from the "Archaic KJV"

Modern Bible perversions are homeopathic.  
They think that the more they dilute them, the better they become.

Sir Walter Scott on the Bible

Within this awful volume lies
    The mystery of mysteries.
Happiest they of human race
    To whom their God has given grace
    To read, to fear, to hope, to pray,
    To lift the latch and force their way.
And better had they ne're been born
    Who read to doubt or read to scorn.

"It is a grave responsibility that a man takes upon himself when he seeks to edit out of God's Self-revelation such features as he in his ignorance deems objectionable."
-- A.W. Tozer

A man who owns only one watch knows what time it is,
But a man who has two watches is never quite sure.

Proverbs 16:11 A just weight and balance are the LORD'S: all the weights of the bag are his work.

Let all the heathen writers join
To form one perfect book;
Great God if once compared to thine,
How mean their writings look!

--Isaac Watts

The Laodiceans are really just health food freaks.  They want a Bible with "no preservatives added."  Just the natural stuff! :-)   1 Corinthians 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

Psalm 12:6 The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.  7 Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.

Proverbs 22:12 The eyes of the LORD preserve knowledge.....


Robert Hicks, a successful businessman in Bath, England, learned to read by copying passages out of a King James Bible when he was 15. When he completed the two-year task 'he was literate and a committed Christian,' London's The Daily Telegraph reports. The grocery store delivery boy swiftly moved up the ranks, becoming marketing manager of the grocery chain, and later regional director for another company. Today he is managing director of a publishing firm.

Hicks is trying to give away a book containing the four Gospels to every home in Britain by 2001. He donated more than $200,000 to the project. 'I never saw the Bible as a child and I want to offer children the chance to see the raw material and enjoy the poetry and drama of the Bible without being put off by the pomp of churches,' he said. Hicks initiated the Millennium Bible program when a British church proposed sending households a Millennium Candle with no mention of Jesus.

A short article in the Telegraph in February resulted in more than 1 million orders for the Scriptures. Hicks has printed 7 million of the books for distribution through local churches. 'I'm not on a crBlipde. I simply want people to have the opportunity to read about Jesus for themselves and see what they make of Him,' he said. The Millenium Gospels also have been printed in French, Spanish, Chinese, and Russian." (Religion Today, October 22, 1999)
