A Quote by Theodore C. Speers, D.D. on generations, history, humility, leadership, men, men and women, needs, people, power, religion, soul, truth, wisdom, and women

The gates of wisdom and truth are forever closed to those who are wise in their own conceits; they have always opened before the expectancy of the humble and the teachable. The great need of the religious soul is the capacity to be receptive. It is a matter of record that no generation of religious people throughout history has ever been lacking in the fellowship and leadership of men and women of rare intellectual power.

A Quote by Theodore C. Speers, D.D. on belief, church, existence, life, persuasion, religion, and trying

We have got to begin a vast reclamation project to revitalize religion for those to whom it means little or nothing. This can be done not by trying to persuade those outside the church to believe what we believe but by pointing out to them the presence of the unrecognized religion that already exists in their lives.

A Quote by Theodore C. Speers, D.D. on christianity, cities, danger, difficulty, faith, needs, and pessimism

City folk need not feel sorry for themselves or be pessimistic about the soil in which Christianity is planted to live and bear fruit. The Christian faith was made for contest, and its best fruits are always produced out of the harsh soil of difficulty and danger.
