A.W. Tozer on Trouble and Truth

awtTozerHead

Trouble

“To be right with God has often meant to be in trouble with men.”
Man the Dwelling Place of God, 114.

Truth

“Truth is a glorious but hard mistress. She never consults, bargains or compromises.”
Of God and Men, 39

Truth (Application Necessary)

For a long time I have believed that truth, to be understood must be lived; that Bible doctrine is wholly ineffective until it has been digested and assimilated by the total life.
That Incredible Christian, 92.

“There is scarcely anything so dull and meaningless as Bible doctrine taught for its own sake. Truth divorced from life is not truth in its Biblical sense, but something else and something less.”
Of God and Men, 26
