Last of a long list of Luther Quotes – Hope you profited from/enjoyed them.

“…We desire nothing more than that the glory of God may be advanced, the benefit of Christ truly known, and the truth of the gospel purely taught.”

Commentary on Galatians p 370



A worldly world likes “christmas.” (They don’t like Christ but they like “christmas.”) It gives a chance to erect fantasy scenes of lights, artificial trees, tinsel, fake snow, & make-believe characters. Their hollywood (it isn’t Christian) has created movie after movie with “christmas” themes. Their crooners made millions on records/tapes (yesteryear) & CDs singing one or more carols, mixed with secular sentimental, even silly songs. Sadly many “christians” watch their movies & buy their CDs. Please, Friend, Wake Up.





We like the rags to riches tale:

Boy meets gal, poor girl meets male.

One once as low as he could be,

Finds gold coins, a pearl by the sea.

Poor-to-rich-myths never get stale.


But what about riches to rags?

One loses comforts and finds snags.

You like to think that direction?

How does that fit your perfection?

Rich men – bums, once cute women – hags.


Christmas ‘fore “all was said and done,”

Is about the rich to rags One,

He became poor, a peasant Man.

He, who at His call, angles ran,

Found no place to lay His head – none.


Christ had seen wealth beyond man’s mind,

Heard tunes no symphony can find,

Left such splendor, left it all.

God, Triune, gave and felt “the call”

To our world, so cold, so unkind.


Why? Why was Christ willing to switch?

Become poor – that we might be rich?

Came to set the sinners fully free,

By dying on that middle tree,

Agony. Pain.  Dead muscles twitch.


His loss was mankind’s greatest gain.

Sinner friend, He died not in vain.

Wealthy, then poor, Christ lives today.

Providing poorest man a way,

To lose his sin in Christ’s blood stain.

If you memorized a player’s & memorized the team on which he plays, YOU can memorize a verse of Scripture. If you know the home city, team colors, & team mascot YOU can memorize a 2nd verse. Now, in how many players, teams, home cities, mascots do you know? Do you have that many Scripture verses committed to memory with reference? Soon you OR that player/team will be dead. The Bible lasts forever!

“God can never act or be anything less than His nature.”

– Paul Covert, sermon, 4/13/97



“Jesus Saves” was once correctly, popularly proclaimed. “Saves” from what? Does He save from sin? Does He save YOU from sin? Do you say you love Jesus but sin everyday in Thought, Word or Deed? Do you claim to be a follower of Christ but “slip” & sin, ask forgiveness, then “slip” & sin the SAME sin, again? Jesus Saves – – – from SIN!

Luk 16. 18

“Whosoever putteth away his wife and marrieth another, committeth adultery: and

whosoever marrieth her that is put away from her husband committeth adultery.”


Does the average evangelical/holiness pulpit still preach the horrors of hell? Do people (in church/out) believe there’s a REAL place of torment as recorded by Dr. Luke (ch.16)? The world, needs bold preachers & fervent praying souls to be concerned about relatives, “nice neighbors” & enemies who’ll soon be in hell, unless redeemed by the Blood of Jesus Christ. Hell is real. Salvation from hell is also very real.
