Keller: Billy Sunday offers timeless wisdom
Billy Sunday (born William Ashley Sunday) 1862 – 1935 was known as one of the most exciting and successful U.S. Christian evangelists. I thought it would be refreshing to share the following, which are some of his sayings taken from “Echoes from Glory.”
- Your reputation is what people say about you. Your character is what God and your wife know about you.
- If you took no more care of yourself physically than spiritually, you’d be just as dried up physically as you are spiritually.
- Look into the preaching Jesus did and you will find it was aimed straight at the big sinners on the front seats.
- Churches don’t need new members half as much as they need the old bunch made over.
- There wouldn’t be so many non-churchgoers if there were not so many non-going churches.
- Home is the place we love best and grumble the most.
- There is more power in a mother’s hand than in a king’s scepter.
- I don’t believe there are devils enough in hell to pull a boy out of the arms of a godly mother.
- Don’t stop with telling your boy to do right. Show him how.
- Better to die an old maid, sister, than marry the wrong man.
- Riches have never yet given anybody either peace or rest.
- God keeps no half-way house. It’s either heaven or hell for you and me.
- The reason you don’t like the Bible, you old sinner, is because it knows all about you.
- Live so that when the final summons comes you will leave something more behind you than an epitaph on a tombstone or an obituary in a newspaper.
