* stand alone with the truth, than to be wrong with a multitude.
*  ultimately die with the truth, than to live with a lie."

or because I fear to lose my reputation for kindness:
If I put my own good name before the other's highest good,
then I know nothing of Calvary love.
Re-quoted by Vickie Matthews

In 1774, the great English philosopher and politician, Edmund Burke spoke of representative government.
He said, "Your representative owes you, not his industry only, but his judgement; and he betrays instead of serving you if he sacrifices it to your opinion."

". But these people went into, not government or politics, but into the cultural industries of broadcasting and education. And they have taken over.
They are now so dominant that most of them are not even aware that they have opinions.
They think that what they think is 'normal.'
And if they come across anyone who resists, they think that person is some kind of
extremist maniac who has to be dismissed as being verging on the mentally unstable."

Peter Hitchens .....British journalist

"Smile, it makes the world wonder what you been up to!"

An Honest Man Alters His Ideas To Fit The Truth.

Man will occasionally stumble over the truth, but usually manages to pick himself up, walk over or around it and carry on."
Winston Churchill

A timid person is frightened before a danger;
A coward during the time of danger;
And a courageous person afterward.
Jean Paul Richter....German author 1763-1825

"A truth's initial commotion is directly proportional  to how deeply the lie was believed. It wasn't the
 world being round that agitated people, but that  the world wasn't flat. When a well-packaged web
 of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over  generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous
and its speaker a raving lunatic."
                                                       Dresden James

"Error, indeed, is never set forth in its naked deformity, lest, being thus exposed, it should at once be detected.  But it is craftily decked out in an attractive dress, so as, by its outward form, to make it appear to the unexperienced --- ridiculous as the expression may seem --- more true than truth itself."
"Against Heresies" 1:2

" I consider that the chief dangers which confront the coming century will be:

Religion without the Holy Ghost,
Christianity without Christ,

Forgiveness without repentance,
Salvation without regeneration,

Politics [government] without God,
and [the teaching of ] Heaven without [the teaching of ] Hell.

--William Booth....Founder of Salvation Army ------we are so there 2017

"Let me be a free man, free to travel, free to stop, free to work, free to trade where I choose, free to choose my own teachers, free to follow the religion of my fathers, free to talk, think and act for myself -- and I will obey every law or submit to the penalty."

Hin-mah-too-yah-lat-kekt (Thunder Rolling Down the Mountain)
On a visit to Washington, D.C., 1879.

-A.W. Tozer
Our fathers believed in sin, the devil and hell and in God; righteousness and heaven.
Humans, our fathers held, had to choose sides--they could not be neutral.
For them it must be life or death, heaven or hell. And if they chose to come out on God's side they could expect open war with God's enemies. The fight would be real and deadly, and would last as long as life continued here below.

How different today…
People think of the world not as a battleground, but as a playground.
We are not here to fight; we are here to frolic.
We are not in a foreign land, WE ARE AT HOME.
This idea has now been accepted in practice by the vast majority of fundamental Christians. They might hedge around the question…but their conduct gives them away.

"As I would not be a slave, so I would not be a master.
This expresses my idea of a democracy"
Abraham Lincoln 1809-1865

All democracies turn into dictatorships-- but not by coup.
The people give their democracy to a dictator...'

" The more complete the despotism, the more smoothly all the things move on the surface."

I'm the enemy (of the NWO) , 'cause I like to think, I like to read. --Edga

"If I find in myself a desire, which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world."

All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident
-- Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860 )

The immortality of the Jews

“The Egyptian, the Babylonian, and the Persian rose, filled the planet with sound and splendor, then . . . passed away.
The Greek and the Roman followed.
The Jew saw them all, beat them all, and is now what he always was, exhibiting no decadence, no infirmities of age, no weakening of his parts. …
All things are mortal but the Jew; all other forces pass, but he remains. What is the secret of his immortality ? 
Mark Twain

Unless I am convinced by Scripture and plain reason - I do not accept the authority of the popes and councils, for they have contradicted each other - my conscience is captive to the Word of God. I cannot and I will not recant anything for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. God help me. Amen."
Martin Luther -- Protestant Reformation

"They that can give away essential liberty to obtain a little safety
deserve neither liberty nor safety."

Benjamin Franklin, inscribed upon the Statue of Liberty

Quotations of Abraham Lincoln

For your Maker is your husband, The LORD of hosts is His name;
And your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel;
He is called the God of the whole earth. Isaiah 54:5

Found on a Message Board:
I go to sleep alone each and every night.
No husband to embrace, nor to hold me tight.
No protective man to wake at every sound.
No warrior to investigate when shadows dance around.

But I will sleep in peace for my Savior is always near.
To cradle me in His love and to banish all my fears.
He is the husband I have longed for, protector of my home;
Provider of my needs and tamer of life's storms.

Modern day Polycarp:
The Rev. John Mohorn of Word of the Living God Ministries said he likely would boycott giving invocations at City Hall.

"There's no way you can pray without using the name," he said. "I have accepted him as Lord and savior and I will not deny him for nobody. I couldn't go along with it.
I can't deny him. And as a minister I'm not called to compromise."

In keeping silent about evil, in burying it so deep within us that no sign of it appears on the surface, we are implanting it, and it will rise up a thousandfold in the future. When we neither punish nor reproach evildoers . . . we are ripping the foundations of justice from beneath new generations."
- Alexander Solzehnitsyn

"Keep the faculty of effort alive in you by a little gratuitous exercise everyday. Be systematically ascetic or heroic in little unnecessary points. Do everyday or two something for no other reason than that you would rather not do it, so that when the hour of dire needs draws nigh, it may find you not unnerved and untrained to stand the test."
---William James ( 1842--1910 )

"The true ground of most men's prejudice against the Christian doctrine is because they have no mind to obey it." - John Tillotson

Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your
selfishness. But in that casket--safe, dark, motionless, airless--it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.

C.S. Lewis

My great concern is not whether God is on our side;
my great concern is to be on God's side, for God is always right."
- Abraham Lincoln

" There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method  [ed .drugs, meds] of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods.
