Quotables (by topics)

I've picked up these quotes and sayings over the years from various sources -
a bumper sticker on an off-ramp in Austin, TX;
a sermon in the '70's in AR; church marquees in TN, KY, and AL;
strange things funny people say; funny things strange people say- you get the idea.
I thought they were worth sharing. Enjoy!

Church [ Top ]

- Under same management for over 2000 years.
- Soul food served here.

- Quit griping about your church; if it was perfect, you couldn't belong!

- He who loses money, loses much; he who loses a friend, loses much more; he who loses faith, loses all.

Abortion [ Top ]

A college class was presented with a hypothetical case. A young girl, not yet married, not wanting to get pregnant, poor, likely to be ostracized by her friends, gets pregnant and needs to decide whether to keep the baby or have an abortion. The college class was fairly unanimous in recommending an abortion. The teacher announced, "Well, you did it: You just aborted... Jesus."

Marriage [ Top ]

- God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve.
- One man and one woman... for life.

Patriotism [ Top ]

- God has blessed America; let America bless God!

Evolution or Creation? [ Top ]

(Note: The criticisms here are leveled against the idea that one species can change into another, or "macro-evolution."
Changes within species, termed "micro-evolution," clearly occur and are not being denied.)

- If the people at the SETI Institute (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence, listening for sounds of life in deep space) ever heard any sounds with any obvious pattern, they would jump up and shout, "Intelligence!" Those same men and women are made up of cells with incredibly complex DNA which is shouting, "Intelligent Design!"

Providence [ Top ]

- Definition of "coincidence": A situation in which God chooses to remain anonymous
- If God is your co-pilot... swap seats!
