Quotes containing the word deliverance


1. Redemption, n. Deliverance of sinners from the penalty of their sin through their murder of the deity against whom they sinned. The doctrine of Redemption is the fundamental mystery of our holy religions, and whoso believeth in it shall not perish, but have everlasting life in which to try to understand it.
- Ambrose Bierce, The Unabridged Devil's Dictionary

2. Deliverance is not for me in renunciation. I feel the embrace of freedom in a thousand bonds of delight.
- Rabindranath Tagore, Gitanjali: Song Offerings

3. The nature of the enemy's warfare in your life is to cause you to become discouraged and to cast away your confidence. Not that you would necessarily discard your salvation, but you could give up your hope of God's deliverance. The enemy wants to numb you into a coping kind of Christianity that has given up hope of seeing God's resurrection power.
- Bob Sorge, Glory: When Heaven Invades Earth
