“Ninety percent of your long-term happiness is predicted not by your external world, but the way your brain processes the world.” -David Murray, The Happy Christian
“What we think and believe about God, about ourselves, about others, about our problems, and about our world dictates and determines the quality of our whole lives: our happiness, our relationships, our creativity, our productivity, and even our physical health.” -David Murray, The Happy Christian
“Nothing teaches us about the preciousness of the Creator as much as when we learn the emptiness of everything else.” -Charles Spurgeon
“Christianity is not merely a program of conduct: it is the power of a new life.” -B.B. Warfield
“Take no truths upon trust, but all upon trial.” -Thomas Brooks
BTW NOTE: This probably requires a nuance of some sort, because taken absolutely it is naturalism. How does one ‘take upon trial’ the truth that Christ was resurrected as the firstfruits of our resurrection? Perhaps the trial is made of the evidence that the Scripture that teaches this is divine revelation? Or that the resurrection has a better argument in support of it than any other humanistic or religious hope?
