Name That Quotation


Who said:

But all the things that God would have us do are hard for us to do—remember that—and hence, he oftener commands us than endeavors to persuade. And if we obey God, we must disobey ourselves; and it is in this disobeying ourselves, wherein the hardness of obeying God consists.

Googling, of course, is the act of dishonest men utterly lacking integrity (Numbers 32:23).

I am going to go with Spurgeon...but I think that is wrong. It's not lofty enough to be Edwards. Yet words like "oftener" put it out of modern times. I can see Spurgeon saying this in response to "faith as a duty" arguments that he had. So, yeah, I am going with Spurgeon.

DL Moody?

This one is rather obscure. Still, I'm going to hold out for a while in hope that someone will get it. Here's a hint: you may have heard R.C. Sproul read this quote, but it is not originally his. If you heard him say it, you should know the source if you were paying attention.

Dr. John H. Gerstner.

OK, so nobody remembers Father Mapple. The quote is from his sermon in Moby Dick.
