Welcome to "Quaint Words!”
These posts will contain thoughts, poems, and prayers from old books that I have found at antique stores, flea markets, and garage sales (with an occasional treasure from a bookstore).
I love the rhythm and sound of the older English language, and am blessed by other believers who have gone before me!
(A listing of books and authors, and also dates of individual postings from those books, will be found on my "QUAINT WORDS" page)
"No one, I repeat, may assert that he [the devil] might not use the basest means to ensnare a minister of Christ, and thus mar his testimony and destroy his usefulness. But it cannot be asserted too often or too plainly that his normal effort is not...to teach us how weak we are; but...to deaden or destroy our sense of dependence upon God.
For sin may humble a Christian; but human philosophy and religion can only foster his self-esteem. And pride is the "snare of the devil"; not humility."
(From "The Silence of God" by Sir Robert Anderson, c. 1897)
