On Catechizing our Children -C.H. Spurgeon-

Unless we are careful over the young, there may be none to bear the Lord’s banner when we sleep among the clods. In matters of doctrine, you will find orthodox congregations frequently change to heterodoxy in the course of thirty or forty years, and that is because too often there has been no catechizing of the children in the essential doctrines of the Gospel.

—Charles Spurgeon

On Not Trying to Hide our Children from the World -N.D. Wilson-

“The world is rated R, and no one is checking IDs. Do not try to make it G by imagining the shadows away. Do not try to hide your children from the world forever, but do not try to pretend there is no danger. Train them. Give them sharp eyes and bellies full of laughter. Make them dangerous. Make them yeast, and when they’ve grown, they will pollute the shadows.”
― N.D. Wilson, Notes from the Tilt-A-Whirl: Wide-Eyed Wonder in God’s Spoken World

On Tolerance, and Despair, and Nothingness -Dorothy L. Sayers-

“In the world it is called Tolerance, but in hell it is called Despair…the sin that believes in nothing, cares for nothing, seeks to know nothing, interferes with nothing, enjoys nothing, finds purpose in nothing, lives for nothing and remains alive because there is nothing for which it will die.”

Dorothy L. Sayers
