1893 - 1992

A Quote by John Sutherland Bonnell, DD on christianity, depression, disillusionment, faith, guilt, needs, overcoming, problems, resentment, spirituality, and therapy

Emphasis on educational and vocational rehabilitation must not be allowed to overshadow the profound need that will exist for spiritual reorientation. Inevitably there will exist, to a considerable degree, psychological maladjustments manifested in disillusionment, resentment toward civilians, depression, and a sense of guilt. Spiritual therapy available in the resources of the Christian faith can accomplish most in overcoming these problems.

A Quote by John Sutherland Bonnell, DD on achievement, character, christianity, direction, discipline, personality, personality, and women

No man or woman has achieved an effective personality who is not self-disciplined. Such discipline must not be an end in itself, but must be directed to the development of resolute Christian character.

A Quote by John Sutherland Bonnell, DD on cynicism, endings, home, honor, life, literature, losing, men, people, purity, religion, vitality, women, and youth

When Rome's youth became debased and enervated, when regard was lost for men's honor and women's purity, when the sanctity of the home was violated, when her literature became cynical and debased, her dominion ended. The moral life of any people rises or falls with the vitality or decay of its religious life.

A Quote by John Sutherland Bonnell, DD on beginning, church, fatherhood, past, progress, and work

Occasionally worshippers of the past put obstructions in the way of progress by saying that we must be true to our fathers, but no church can long continue to live on its past.  There is only one way that we can be true to our fathers and that is to carry on to completion the work they have so nobly begun.

A Quote by John Sutherland Bonnell, DD on giving and life

It is an anomaly of modern life that many find giving to be a burden. Such persons have omitted a preliminary giving. If one first gives himself to the Lord, all other giving is easy.

A Quote by John Sutherland Bonnell, DD on belief, faith, god, individuality, learning, life, meaning, and purpose

The lack of faith in one's mission in life is the cause of multitudes of failures. When you have learned to believe in God's purpose for you as an individual, you are immediately lifted out of the mass and become significant and meaningful in the eyes of God and of man.
