" …the Christian faith is not true because it works; it works because it is true. It is not true because we experience it; we experience it—deeply and gloriously—because it is true. It is not simply ‘true for us’; it is true for any who seek in order to find, because truth is true even if nobody believes it and falsehood is false even if everybody believes it. That is why truth does not yield to opinion, fashion, numbers, office, or sincerity—it is simply true and that’s the end of it. "

" Our offended God has reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ. By the inspiration of God, the Scriptures were written, which are the word of reconciliation; showing that peace has been made by the cross, and how we may be interested therein. "

- Matthew Henry

The renewed man acts upon new principles

The renewed man acts upon new principles, by new rules, with new ends, and in new company. The believer is created anew; his heart is not merely set right, but a new heart is given him. He is the workmanship of God, created in Christ Jesus unto good works. Though the same as a man, he is changed in his character and conduct. These words must and do mean more than an outward reformation. The man who formerly saw no beauty in the Saviour that he should desire him, now loves him above all things.

The Gall-Peters Projection - a map projection that displays more accurate proportions and locations of land masses than those found in the Mercator projection (the one you’re probably familiar with).

This is how the world actually looks.

^ Mostly, good sir. This is more accurate than the Mercator – and I far prefer this over it.

The most accurate map… 

This is how the world actually looks.

Below is the universal corrective map. How the world actually looks!

" Our ancestors established their system of government on morality and religious sentiment. Moral habits, they believed, cannot safely be trusted on any other foundation than religious principle, not any government secure which is not supported by moral habits…. Whatever makes men good Christians, makes them good citizens. "

- Daniel Webster

" Hold on, my friends, to the Constitution and to the Republic for which it stands. Miracles do not cluster and what has happened once in 6,000 years, may not happen again. Hold on to the Constitution, for if the American Constitution should fail, there will be anarchy throughout the world. "

- Daniel Webster

" Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters. "

- Daniel Webster

" Human beings will generally exercise power when they can get it, and they will exercise it most undoubtedly in popular governments under pretense of public safety. "

- Daniel Webster

" I apprehend no danger to our country from a foreign foe … Our destruction, should it come at all, will be from another quarter. — From the inattention of the people to the concerns of their government, from their carelessness and negligence, I must confess that I do apprehend some danger. I fear that they may place too implicit a confidence in their public servants, and fail properly to scrutinize their conduct; that in this way they may be made the dupes of designing men, and become the instruments of their own undoing. Make them intelligent, and they will be vigilant; give them the means of detecting the wrong, and they will apply the remedy. "

- Daniel Webster

My Redeemer’s Love

rejoycef0rever:

My Redeemer’s love is deeper 
Than the depths of sin and hell 
He who was enthroned in glory 
Came to bring us to Himself 
My Redeemer’s love is wider 
Than the breach my sins had made 
He reached down into my darkness 
He alone has pow’r to save 
 
Deeper than the rolling seas 
Higher than the mountain peaks 
Your love is all I need 

My Redeemer’s love is stronger 
Than my fiercest enemies 
He will hold me in the tempest 
Through the flood He carries me 
My Redeemer’s love will lead me 
Through the deepest valley here 
He will shepherd me and guide me 
He will ever keep me near 

Deeper than the rolling seas 
Higher than the mountain peaks 
Your love is all I need 
Stronger than the rushing wind 
Shattering the power of sin 
Your love is all I need 

My Redeemer’s love grows sweeter 
As eternity draws near 
I’ll enjoy His love forever 
At His throne for endless years 
My Redeemer’s love will fill me 
On the day I see His face 
I will love Him back forever 
And forever sing His praise
