    Doctrine quotes by:    

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.

    Author: A.W. Tozer
    Source: Leadership, v. 12, n. 1.

The doctrines of grace humble man without degrading him and exalt him without inflating him.

    Author: Charles Hodge

It is a thoroughly anti-christian doctrine that the Spirit of God, and therefore the life and governing power of the Church, resides in the ministry, to the exclusion of the people.

    Author: Charles Hodge

The Galatians are severely censured for giving heed to false doctrines, and are called to pronounce even an apostle anathema, if he preached another gospel.

    Author: Charles Hodge

There is no mere doctrine of "the security" of the believer, as though God's keeping of us took place irrespective of the lives we live. Indeed there is no such thing in the New Testament as a believer whose perseverance is so guaranteed that he can afford to ignore the warning notes which are sounded so frequently.

    Author: Sinclair B. Ferguson

I firmly believe people have hitherto been a great deal too much taken up about doctrine and far too little about practice. The word "doctrine," as used in the Bible, means teaching of duty, not theory.

    Author: George Macdonald

It is an undoubted truth that every doctrine that comes from God, leads to God; and that which doth not tend to promote holiness is not of God.

    Author: George Whitefield

We have come to a place in time where we measure the correctness of our plans simply by their seeming to contribute to our favorite aim. We estimate the soundness of our doctrine, not from its tendency to exalt and glorify God but entirely by the apparent facility with which it enables us to get sinners to turn from their ways.

    Author: Horatius Bonar

Doctrinal preaching certainly bores the hypocrites; but it is only doctrinal preaching that will save Christ's sheep.

    Author: J.I. Packer

Good conduct arises out of good doctrine.

    Author: John Stott

The early Christians condemned false doctrine in a way that sounds almost unchristian today.

    Author: Vance Havner

Many people think that the mark of an authentic Christian is doctrinal purity; if a person's beliefs are biblical and doctrinally orthodox, then he is a Christian. People who equate orthodoxy with authenticity find it hard to even consider the possibility that, despite the correctness of all their doctrinal positions, they may have missed the deepest reality of the authentic Christian life.

    Author: Ray C. Stedman
