Leaven

“A microscope passed over leaven at work in meal, so far from disclosing a passive acceptance of the leaven by the meal, reveals a fierce battlefield of antagonistic germs. It is no gentle concession of one side to the other; or a constant, weak yielding of compromise for the sake of peace; on the contrary it is a struggle to the death, in order that one principle, or the other, may be triumphant over a mastered foe. The Lord’s parable (Matt. 13: 33) is deeper than we dream.” — Anonymous

Like A Wall Of Fire

“It is the part of Christians to rise like a wall of fire around the integrity and inspiration of Scripture; and to hold them as intact and inviolable as if a rampart were thrown around them whose foundations are on earth and whose battlements are in heaven. It is this tampering with limits that destroys and defaces everything; and therefore it is precisely when the limit is broken that the alarm should be sounded. If the battle-cry is to be lifted at all, it should be lifted at the outset; and so on the first mingling, by however so slight an infusion, of things human with things divine, all the friends of the Bible should join heart and hand against so foul and fearful a desecration.” — from Chalmers’ Christian Evidences
