– Richard Taylor, The Disciplined Life (Minneapolis: Bethany Fellowship Inc., 1962), 11.

 

Theodore Roosevelt said “The things that will destroy America are prosperity at any price, peace at any price, safety first instead of duty first, the love of soft living, and the get rich theory of life.”

– Richard Taylor, The Disciplined Life (Minneapolis: Bethany Fellowship Inc., 1962), 18.

 

Discipline must be seen as a servant, not a savoir…Discipline unquestionably makes a man superior.  If not watched, it will make him feel superior.

– Richard Taylor, The Disciplined Life (Minneapolis: Bethany Fellowship Inc., 1962), 40.

 

Faith can release in a moment powers for holiness that discipline cannot command in a millennium. 

– Richard Taylor, The Disciplined Life (Minneapolis: Bethany Fellowship Inc., 1962), 54.

 

The baptism of the Hoy Spirit gives neither a trained mind nor trained hands.  The holiest soul may be ignorant, awkward, and blundering…he may have no trade, skill, art, or profession.  But not for long.

– Richard Taylor, The Disciplined Life (Minneapolis: Bethany Fellowship Inc., 1962), 60.

 

Richard Shelley Taylor was born this date (3/30/1912) in Cornelius, Oregon.  He wrote several other books including A Right Conception of Sin.  It was my privilege to sit under his teaching in the Chamberlain Holiness Lecture Series at Wesley Biblical Seminary, Jackson, MS.  Got to meet him and he autographed five of his books for me.

“The Bible Stands”  (stanza 1 & refrain)

 

The Bible stands like a rock undaunted
’Mid the raging storms of time;
Its pages burn with the truth eternal,
And they glow with a light sublime.

Refrain

The Bible stands though the hills may tumble,
It will firmly stand when the earth shall crumble;
I will plant my feet on its firm foundation,
For the Bible stands.                            (see more at Cyberhymnal.org)
