“I’ve often wondered where Jesus would apply His hastily made whip if He were to visit our culture. My guess is that it would not be money-changing tables in the temple that would feel His wrath, but the display racks in Christian bookstores.”
― R.C. Sproul

~ Charles Spurgeon
“To despise doctrine is to despise the Word of God.”
