Text Quotes
The ultimate ground of faith and knowledge is confidence in God  (Charles Hodge Quotes) If all Church power vests in the clergy, then the people are practically bound to passive obedience in all matters of faith and practice; for all right of private judgment is then denied.  (Charles Hodge Quotes) Romanists tell us that the Pope is the vicar of Christ; that he is his successor as the universal head and ruler of the Church on earth. If this is so, he must be a Christ  (Charles Hodge Quotes) The Church is everywhere represented as one. It is one body, one family, one fold, one kingdom. It is one because pervaded by one Spirit. We are all baptized into one Spirit so as to become, says the apostle, on body  (Charles Hodge Quotes) The best evidence of the Bible’s being the word of God is to be found between its covers. It proves itself  (Charles Hodge Quotes) Our duty, privilege, and security are in believing, not in knowing; in trusting God, and not our own understanding. They are to be pitied who have no more trustworthy teacher than themselves  (Charles Hodge Quotes) This is true religion, to approve what God approves, to hate what he hates, and to delight in what delights him  (Charles Hodge Quotes) Sanctification is not a work of nature, but a work of grace. It is a transformation of character effected not by moral influences, but supernaturally by the Holy Spirit  (Charles Hodge Quotes) This whole process of education is to be religious, and not only religious, but Christian. And as Christianity is the only true religion, and God in Christ the only true God, the only possible means of profitable education is the nurture and admonition of the Lord  (Charles Hodge Quotes) In opposition... to all the suggestions of the devil, the sole, simple, and sufficient answer is the word of God. This puts to flight all the powers of darkness  (Charles Hodge Quotes) If Christ has risen the Bible is true from Genesis to Revelation. The kingdom of darkness has been overthrown. Satan has fallen like lightning from heaven; and the triumph of truth over error, of good over evil, of happiness over misery, is forever secured  (Charles Hodge Quotes) When we are weak, then are we strong. When most empty of self, we are most full of God  (Charles Hodge Quotes) It is a fact that unless children are brought up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, they, and the society which they constitute or control, will go to destruction. Consequently, when a state resolves that religious instruction shall be banished from the schools and other literary institutions, it virtually resolves on self-destruction  (Charles Hodge Quotes) Prayer is the converse of the soul with God. Therein we manifest or express to Him our reverence, and love for His divine perfection, our gratitude for all His mercies, our penitence for our sins, our hope in His forgiving love, our submission to His authority, our confidence in His care, our desires for His favour, and for the providential and spiritual blessings needed for ourselves and others  (Charles Hodge Quotes) Christ has not only ordained that there shall be such officers in his Church - he has not only specified their duties and prerogatives - but he gives the requisite qualifications, and calls those thus qualified, and by that call gives them their official authority.  (Charles Hodge Quotes) All Church power is, therefore, properly ministerial and administrative. Everything is to be done in the name of Christ, and in accordance with his directions  (Charles Hodge Quotes) All Church power arises from the indwelling of the Spirit; therefore those in whom the Spirit dwells are the seat of Church power. But the Spirit dwells in the whole Church, and therefore the whole Church is the seat of Church power  (Charles Hodge Quotes) If all Church power vests in the clergy, then the people are practically bound to passive obedience in all matters of faith and practice; for all right of private judgment is then denied  (Charles Hodge Quotes) Ruling elders are declared to be the representatives of the people  (Charles Hodge Quotes) That the apostolic office is temporary, is a plain historical fact  (Charles Hodge Quotes) The office of presbyters is a permanent one  (Charles Hodge Quotes) The doctrines of grace humble man without degrading him and exalt him without inflating him  (Charles Hodge Quotes) Faith is not a blind, irrational conviction. In order to believe, we must know what we believe, and the grounds on which our faith rests  (Charles Hodge Quotes) Every man, therefore, who expects justification by works, must see to it, not that he is better than other men, or that he is very exact and does many things, or that he fasts twice in the week, and gives tithes of all he possesses, but that he is sinless  (Charles Hodge Quotes) The gospel is so simple that small children can understand it, and it is so profound that studies by the wisest theologians will never exhaust its riches  (Charles Hodge Quotes) The functions of these elders, therefore, determine the power of the people; for a representative is one chosen by others to do in their name what they are entitled to do in their own persons; or rather to exercise the powers which radically inhere in those for whom they act  (Charles Hodge Quotes) Zeal is the chief source, or one of the chief sources of spiritual power. God employs living souls to communicate life. In all ages, men of zeal have produced great results. This qualification, in the absence of others, can accomplish wonders  (Charles Hodge Quotes) So too, in forming a constitution, or in enacting rules of procedure, or making canons, the people do not merely passively assent, but actively cooperate. They have, in all these matters, the same authority as the clergy  (Charles Hodge Quotes) Our first remark on this subject is that the ministry is an office, and not merely a work  (Charles Hodge Quotes) Original sin is the only rational solution of the undeniable fact of the deep, universal and early manifested sinfulness of men in all ages, of every class, and in every part of the world  (Charles Hodge Quotes)
