Ditch the cliche

forsyth on wallP. T. Forsyth on Facebook here.

As someone said to me recently, “Reading just one Forsyth quote is more than six months in ‘Every Day With Jesus.'”

Disclaimer:  If you were offended by the above, you seriously need to ditch EDWJ and get some more PTF.  My personal view is that one PTF quote is worth at least, I said, at least, six years.

Here’s a taster:

“Prayerlessness is an injustice and a damage to our own soul, and therefore to its history, both in what we do and what we think. The root of all deadly heresy is prayerlessness.”

“What is the value of praying for the poor if all the rest of our time and interest is given only to becoming rich?”

“What really searches us is neither our own introspection, nor God’s law, but it is God’s Gospel, as it pierces us from the merciless mercy of the Cross and the Son unspared for us.”

“The winning of souls, or the leading of souls, often costs the soul.”

And one more……….
