An aphorism is nothing else but the slightest
form of writing raised to the highest level of expressive communication. Carl William Brown





Why should I apologize because God throws in crystal chandeliers, mahogany floors, and the best construction in the world?


Jim Bakker (1940-, American evangelist)


Evangelism as the New Testament describes it is not child's play. Evangelism is work, often hard work. Yet it is not drudgery. It puts person in good humor, and makes him truly human.


Oswald C. Hoffman


Evangelism is selling a dream.


Guy Kawasaki


The salvation of a single soul is more important than the production or preservation of all the epics and tragedies in the world.


C. S. Lewis (1898-1963, British academic, writer, Christian apologist)


There is no arguing with the pretenders to a divine knowledge and to a divine mission. They are possessed with the sin of pride, they have yielded to the perennial temptation.


Walter Lippmann (1889-1974, American journalist)


The Holy Spirit can't save saints or seats. If we don't know any non-Christians, how can we introduce them to the Savior?


Paul Little


The world has more winnable people than ever before… but it is possible to come out of a ripe field empty-handed.


Donald H. McGannon


We will win the world when we realize that fellowship, not evangelism, must be our primary emphasis. When we demonstrate the Big Miracle of Love, it won't be necessary for us to go out -- they will come in.


Jess Moody


To call a man evangelical who is not evangelistic is an utter contradiction.


Campbell G. Morgan


Evangelism is the spontaneous overflow of a glad and free heart in Jesus Christ.


Robert Munger


Evangelism is just one beggar telling another beggar where to find bread.


D. T. Niles


In soliciting donations from his flock, a preacher may promise eternal life in a celestial city whose streets are paved with gold, and that's none of the law's business. But if he promises an annual free stay in a luxury hotel on Earth, he'd better have the rooms available.


Charlotte Observer


Our business is to present the Christian faith clothed in modern terms, not to propagate modern thought clothed in Christian terms. Confusion here is fatal.


J. I. Packer


Being an extrovert isn't essential to evangelism -- obedience and love are.


Rebecca M. Pippert


In full view of his television audience, he preached a new religion -- or a new form of Christianity -- based on faith in financial miracles and in a Heaven here on earth with a water slide and luxury hotels. It was a religion of celebrity and showmanship and fun, which made a mockery of all puritanical standards and all canons of good taste. Its standard was excess, and its doctrines were tolerance and freedom from accountability.


Author Unknown


Nothing makes one so vain as being told that one is a sinner.


Oscar Wilde (1856-1900, British author, wit)


God is definitely out of the closet.


Marianne Williamson (1952-, American author, lecturer on spirituality)
