Quick Quotes

    My personal missionary hero, C.T. Studd, led an interesting life, to say the least. Born into an extremely wealthy family, Studd gave away his share of the family fortune and instead dedicated his life to missions in China, India, and Africa. These are some good quotes from him.

    "Christ's call is to save the lost, not the stiff-necked; He came not to call scoffers but sinners to repentance; not to build and furnish comfortable chapels, churches, and cathedrals at home in which to rock Christian professors to sleep by means of clever essays, stereotyped prayers, and artistic musical performances, but to capture men from the devil's clutches and the very jaws of Hell. This can be accomplished only by a red-hot, unconventional, unfettered devotion, in the power of the Holy Spirit, to the Lord Jesus Christ."

    "Christ does not want nibblers of the possible, but grabbers of the impossible."

    "A lost reputation is the best degree for Christ's service."

    "Some want to live within the sound of church or chapel bell; I want to run a rescue shop within a yard of hell."

    ""How little chance the Holy Ghost has nowadays. The churches and missionary societies have so bound him in red tape that they practically ask Him to sit in a corner while they do the work themselves."
