The Western Church did not come to the barbarians with a civilizing mission or any conscious hopes of social progress, but with a tremendous message of divine judgment and divine salvation. Humanity was born under a curse, enslaved by the dark powers of cosmic evil and sinking ever deeper under the burden of its own guilt. Only by the way of the Cross and by the grace of the crucified Redeemer was it possible for men to extricate themselves from the massa damnata of unregenerate humanity and escape from the wreckage of a doomed world.Christopher Henry Dawson Unregenerate Sayings By Christopher Henry Dawson: The Western Church did not come to the barbarians with a civilizing mission or any
Since the fall of man was ethical in character (not metaphysical) the unregenerate and regenerate share the facts of the world and the rules of thought, but their interpretation and use of them are far from neutral.Greg L. Bahnsen Unregenerate Sayings By Greg L. Bahnsen: Since the fall of man was ethical in character (not metaphysical) the unregenerate and regenerate
There is no surer mark of a low and unregenerate nature than this tendency of power to loudness and wantonness instead of quietness and reverence. To souls baptized in Christian nobleness the largest sphere of command is but a wider empire of obedience, calling them, not to escape from holy rule, but to its full impersonation.James Martineau Unregenerate Sayings By James Martineau: There is no surer mark of a low and unregenerate nature than this tendency of
When I sent out a casual and nonscientific poll of my own to a wide cast of acquaintances, friends and colleagues, I was surprised, but not really, to learn that maybe 60 percent claimed a belief in a God of some sort, including people I would have bet were unregenerate skeptics. Others just shrugged. They don't think about this stuff. It doesn't matter to them. They can't know, they won't beat themselves up trying to know and for that matter they don't care if their kids believe or not.Natalie Angier Unregenerate Sayings By Natalie Angier: When I sent out a casual and nonscientific poll of my own to a wide
There must be a constant and increasing appreciation that though sin still remains it does not have the mastery. There is a total difference between surviving sin and reigning sin, the regenerate in conflict with sin and the unregenerate complacent to sin. It is one thing for sin to live in us: it is another for us to live in sin.John Murray Unregenerate Sayings By John Murray: There must be a constant and increasing appreciation that though sin still remains it does
Our finest writing will certainly come from what is unregenerate in ourselves. It will come from the part that is obdurate, unbanishable, immune to education, springing up like grass.Bonnie Friedman Unregenerate Sayings By Bonnie Friedman: Our finest writing will certainly come from what is unregenerate in ourselves. It will come
Meanwhile, the self can stand in the way of the Not-Self, interfering with the free flow of spiritual grace, this maintaining the self in a state of blindness, and also with the flow of animal grace, which leads to the impairment of natural functions and, in the long run, of the slower processes called structure. For each individual human being, the main practical problems are these: How can I prevent my ego from eclipsing the inner light, synteresis, scintilla animae, and so perpetuating the state of unregenerate illusion and blindness? And these practical problems remain unchallenged, even if we abandon the notion of an entelechy or physiological intelligencer, of an atman or pneuma and think, instead, in terms [of] systems...Aldous Huxley Unregenerate Sayings By Aldous Huxley: Meanwhile, the self can stand in the way of the Not-Self, interfering with the free
I speak as an unregenerate reader, one who still believes that language and not technology is the true evolutionary miracle. I have not yet given up on the idea that the experience of literature offers a kind of wisdom that cannot be discovered elsewhere; that there is profundity in the verbal encounter itself, never mind what further profundities that author has to offer; and that for a host of reasons the bound book is the ideal vehicle for the written word.Sven Birkerts Unregenerate Sayings By Sven Birkerts: I speak as an unregenerate reader, one who still believes that language and not technology
Human beings, regenerate or unregenerate, have neither the right nor the competence to dictate to a sovereign God how He is to be worshipped.Joseph C. Morecraft III Unregenerate Sayings By Joseph C. Morecraft III: Human beings, regenerate or unregenerate, have neither the right nor the competence to dictate to
Note, to-day, an instructive, curious spectacle and conflict. Science, (twin, in its fields, of Democracy in its) - Science, testing absolutely all thoughts, all works, has already burst well upon the world - a sun, mounting, most illuminating, most glorious - surely never again to set. But against it, deeply entrench'd, holding possession, yet remains, (not only through the churches and schools, but by imaginative literature, and unregenerate poetry,) the fossil theology of the mythic-materialistic, superstitious, untaught and credulous, fable-loving, primitive ages of humanity.Walt Whitman Unregenerate Sayings By Walt Whitman: Note, to-day, an instructive, curious spectacle and conflict. Science, (twin, in its fields, of Democracy
One shard of brilliant summer pierced me
and remains.
By this only
unregenerate bone
I am not dead, but waiting.
Audre Lorde Unregenerate Sayings By Audre Lorde: One shard of brilliant summer pierced meand remains.By this onlyunregenerate boneI am not dead, but
So near are the boundaries of panegyric and invective, that a worn-out sinner is sometimes found to make the best declaimer against sin. The same high-seasoned descriptions which in his unregenerate state served to inflame his appetites, in his new province of a moralist will serve him (a little turned) to expose the enormity of those appetites in other men.Charles Lamb Unregenerate Sayings By Charles Lamb: So near are the boundaries of panegyric and invective, that a worn-out sinner is sometimes
We object not to the narration of the deeds of our unregenerate condition, but to the mode in which it is too often done. Let sin have its monument, but let it be a heap of stones cast by the hands of execration - not a mausoleum erected by the hands of affection.Charles Spurgeon Unregenerate Sayings By Charles Spurgeon: We object not to the narration of the deeds of our unregenerate condition, but to
Men are going down to Hell like a flock, only because they hate God and Heaven. The carnal mind is enmity against God, and an unregenerate man would soon turn a Heaven into a Hell. Whoever goes down to the pit will have himself to blame for it, for no man will suffer damnation but for the one sin of rejecting the light of the knowledge of God which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. (See John 1:9; 3:18, 19; 1 John 5:9-12.) Jesus bore all the sins of the human race in His own body on the tree and the only sin which can now consign men to perdition is the sin of making God a liar and counting the blood of the covenant an unholy thing.William Pettingill Unregenerate Sayings By William Pettingill: Men are going down to Hell like a flock, only because they hate God and
It is proved out of the holy scriptures that an unregenerate man is altogether destitute of the power and liberty of his will, in those things that pertain to faith and salvation.Peter Du Moulin Unregenerate Sayings By Peter Du Moulin: It is proved out of the holy scriptures that an unregenerate man is altogether destitute
The death of Christ made it possible for God to accept sinful man, and that he has, in fact, done so. Consequently, whatever separation there is between man and the benefits of God's grace is subjective in nature and exists only in man's mind and unregenerate spirit. The message man needs to hear then, is not that he simply has a suggested opportunity for salvation, but that through Christ he has, in fact, already been redeemed to God and that he may enjoy the blessing that are already his through ChristCarlton Pearson Unregenerate Sayings By Carlton Pearson: The death of Christ made it possible for God to accept sinful man, and that
As God can send a nation or people no greater blessing than to give them faithful, sincere and upright ministers, so the greatest curse that God can possibly send upon a people in this world is to give them over to blind, unregenerate, carnal, lukewarm and unskilled guides.George Whitefield Unregenerate Sayings By George Whitefield: As God can send a nation or people no greater blessing than to give them
Fallen man is free to choose what he desires, but because his desires are only wicked he lacks the moral ability to come to Christ. As long as he remains in the flesh, unregenerate, he will never choose Christ. He cannot choose Christ precisely because he cannot act against his own will. His fall is so great that only the effectual grace of God working in his heart can bring him to faith.R.C. Sproul Unregenerate Sayings By R.C. Sproul: Fallen man is free to choose what he desires, but because his desires are only
On the whole, I am on the side of the unregenerate who affirms the worth of life as an end in itself, as against the saints who deny it.Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. Unregenerate Sayings By Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.: On the whole, I am on the side of the unregenerate who affirms the worth
The unregenerate human heart is, perhaps,the most inconsistent thing in all nature; and in nothing is it more capricious than in the manifestations of its passions; and in no passion is it so fantastic as in that which it miscalls love, but which is really often only appetite.E.D.E.N. Southworth Unregenerate Sayings By E.D.E.N. Southworth: The unregenerate human heart is, perhaps,the most inconsistent thing in all nature; and in nothing
Everything that isn't gospel is law. Let us say it again: Everything that isn't gospel is law. Every way we try to make our kids good that isn't rooted in the good news of the life, death, ressurection, and assension of Jesus Christ is damnable, crushing, despair-breeding, Pharisee-producing law. We won't get the results we want from the law. We'll get either shallow self-righteousness or blazing rebellion or both (frequently from the same kid on the same day!). We'll get moralistic kids who are cold and hypocritical and who look down on others (and could easily become Mormons), or you'll get teens who are rebellious and self-indulgent and who can't wait to get out of the house. We have to remember that in the life of our unregenerate children, the law is given for one reason only: to crush their self-confidence and drive them to Christ.Elyse M. Fitzpatrick Unregenerate Sayings By Elyse M. Fitzpatrick: Everything that isn't gospel is law. Let us say it again: Everything that isn't gospel
Another scheme of Satan is to eliminate from the church all the humble, self-denying ordinances that are offensive to unsanctified tastes and unregenerate hearts. He seeks to reduce the church to a mere human institution - popular, natural, fleshly, and pleasing.E. M. Bounds Unregenerate Sayings By E. M. Bounds: Another scheme of Satan is to eliminate from the church all the humble, self-denying ordinances
Many religious people are deeply suspicious. They seem, for purely religious purposes, of course, to know more about iniquity than the unregenerate.Rudyard Kipling Unregenerate Sayings By Rudyard Kipling: Many religious people are deeply suspicious. They seem, for purely religious purposes, of course, to
Repentance and faith are distasteful to the unregenerate; they would sooner repeat a thousand formal prayers than shed a solitary tear of true repentance.Charles Spurgeon Unregenerate Sayings By Charles Spurgeon: Repentance and faith are distasteful to the unregenerate; they would sooner repeat a thousand formal
The church is ever in peril-and never more so than now-of the disaster which must follow when she allows men of distinction in the sphere of human attainments, who are unregenerate or unspiritual, to dictate as to what her beliefs shall be.Lewis Sperry Chafer Unregenerate Sayings By Lewis Sperry Chafer: The church is ever in peril-and never more so than now-of the disaster which must
We had traveled far and long to get here but were still the same still-born, unreconstructed people who had once met on this landscape that began somewhere not too far south of the south and ended all the way up in the northernmost extremes of the north, and every soul begotten upon this land was a bastard child of that interminable human equation: colonizer and colony, slave and master, rapist and victim, and any pledge to loyalty and patriotism was an oath to both parts of this equation - we were the seconds obliviously turned up on the old, unregenerate battlefield, here to fight in history's redundant, never-ending duel, always carrying someone else's sword and flag in the name of the myth.John M. Keller Unregenerate Sayings By John M. Keller: We had traveled far and long to get here but were still the same still-born,
Eirik Thorvaldsson Raudi - Eirik the Red - was red of hair and red of beard, bloody of heart and bloody of hand. He was a murderously bad neighbor, a scoundrel on a grand scale, a heathen to the core, and to the last of his life he remained unregenerate. Yet, he was a towering figure of a Viking. And others would follow him to the end of the world and live with him at the end of human existence.Robert Wernick Unregenerate Sayings By Robert Wernick: Eirik Thorvaldsson Raudi - Eirik the Red - was red of hair and red of
The absence of brutality and unregenerate evil is not the presence of justice. To stay murder is not the same thing as to ordain brotherhood.Martin Luther King Jr. Unregenerate Sayings By Martin Luther King Jr.: The absence of brutality and unregenerate evil is not the presence of justice. To stay
I accept the fact I am an unregenerate egghead.Malcolm Muggeridge Unregenerate Sayings By Malcolm Muggeridge: I accept the fact I am an unregenerate egghead.
The lowest degree of grace - is superior to the noblest development of unregenerate nature.Charles Haddon Spurgeon Unregenerate Sayings By Charles Haddon Spurgeon: The lowest degree of grace - is superior to the noblest development of unregenerate nature.
Whether the Bible is Law or Gospel depends on the spiritual condition of the one hearing it. If someone is regenerate and loves God, then the whole Bible is Gospel to him. If someone is unregenerate and hates God, the whole Bible is Law to him, the whole thing condemns him.Douglas Wilson Unregenerate Sayings By Douglas Wilson: Whether the Bible is Law or Gospel depends on the spiritual condition of the one
The unregenerate do not really believe in the holiness of God. Their conception of His character is altogether one-sided. They fondly hope that His mercy will override everything else. ThouArthur W. Pink Unregenerate Sayings By Arthur W. Pink: The unregenerate do not really believe in the holiness of God. Their conception of His
My people shall dwell in quiet resting places. Isaiah 32:18 Peace and rest belong not to the unregenerate, they are the peculiar possession of the Lord's people, and of them only. The God of Peace gives perfect peace to those whose hearts are stayed upon him.Charles Haddon Spurgeon Unregenerate Sayings By Charles Haddon Spurgeon: My people shall dwell in quiet resting places. Isaiah 32:18 Peace and rest belong not
Dickens enjoyed human beings as he found them, unregenerate, peculiar and incorrigibly themselves.John N. Gray Unregenerate Sayings By John N. Gray: Dickens enjoyed human beings as he found them, unregenerate, peculiar and incorrigibly themselves.
