Talk unbelief, and you will have unbelief; but talk faith, and you will have faith. According to the seed sown will be the harvest.— Ellen G. White
Irresistibly Unbelief quotations
To be free of belief and unbelief is my religion.
We are all making a crown for Jesus out of these daily lives of ours, either a crown of golden, divine love, studded with gems of sacrifice and adoration, or a thorny crown, filled with the cruel briars of unbelief, or selfishness, and sin.
God's Word is true whether we believe it or not. Human unbelief cannot alter the character of God.
Likewise today, some Christians are content to merely exist until they die.
They don't want to risk anything, to believe God, to grow or mature. They refuse to believe his Word, and have become hardened in their unbelief. Now they're living just to die.
No man is excluded from calling upon God, the gate of salvation is set open unto all men: neither is there any other thing which keepeth us back from entering in, save only our own unbelief.
Unbelief is infectious! The unbelief of one strengthens the unbelief of another, just as the faith of one strengthens the faith of another.
It is no advantage to be near the light if the eyes are closed.
So I should say that civilizations begin with religion and stoicism: they end with scepticism and unbelief, and the undisciplined pursuit of individual pleasure. A civilization is born stoic and dies epicurean.
Faith comes and goes. It rises and falls like the tides of an invisible ocean. If it is presumptuous to think that faith will stay with you forever, it is just as presumptuous to think that unbelief will.
There’s something amazing about unbelief – it is able to fulfill its own expectations. Unbelief is safe because it takes no risk and almost always gets what it expects. Then, after a person gets the answer for their unbelief, they can say, I told you so.
No man can have anything better after faith than a woman of righteous character, loving and child-bearing. And no man can have anything worse after unbelief than a sharp-tongued woman of bad character.
The opposite of patience is not impatience, but unbelief.
Never dig up in unbelief what you have sown in faith.
God gives you the sight, the right, and the might to do great things, but you have to develop the fight!
Those who do not believe do not pray.
This is a good functional definition of faith. Faith prays, unbelief does not.
Mere unbelief in a personal God is no philosophy at all.
Belief consists in accepting the affirmations of the soul; unbelief, in denying them.
Skepticism is unbelief in cause and effect.
All ages of belief have been great; all of unbelief have been mean.
When the literary class betray a destitution of faith, it is not strange that society should be disheartened and sensualized by unbelief.
The new statement will comprise the skepticisms, as well as the faiths of society, and out of unbeliefs a creed shall be formed. For, skepticisms are not gratuitous or lawless, but are limitations of the affirmative statement, and the new philosophy must take them in, and make affirmations outside of them, just as much as must include the oldest beliefs.
The unbelief of the age is attested by the loud condemnation of trifles.
Where faith is not continually kept in motion and exercised, it weakens and decreases, so that it must indeed vanish; and yet we do not see nor feel this weakness ourselves, except in times of need and temptation, when unbelief rages too strongly; and yet for that very reason faith must have temptations in which it may battle and grow.
Just as no one can be forced into belief, so no one can be forced into unbelief.
Unbelief is the mother of vice; it is the parent of sin; and, therefore, I say it is a pestilent evil-a master sin.
The saints are sinners still. Our best tears need to be wept over, the strongest faith is mixed with unbelief, our most flaming love is cold compared with what Jesus deserves, and our intensest zeal still lacks the full fervor which the bleeding wounds and pierced heart of the crucified might claim at our hands. Our best things need a sin offering, or they would condemn us.
Unbelief will destroy the best of us; faith will save the worst of us.
I have noticed that whenever a person gives up his belief in the Word of God because it requires that he should believe a good deal, his unbelief requires him to believe a great deal more. If there be any difficulties in the faith of Christ, they are not one-tenth as great as the absurdities in any system of unbelief which seeks to take its place.
The beginning of faith is the beginning of fruitfulness;
but the beginning of unbelief, however glittering, is empty.
If the thought ever comes to you that everything that you have thought about God is mistaken and that there is no God, do not be dismayed. It happens to many people. But do not think that the source of your unbelief is that there is no God.
One man in a meeting, filled with unbelief, can make a place for the devil to have a seat.
There is nothing impossible with God.
All the impossibility is with us when we measure God by the limitations of our unbelief.
Satan will battle you with doubt and unbelief, but God has victory waiting for you if you'll keep trusting and believing Him.
The wrongs done to trees, wrongs of every sort, are done in the darkness of ignorance and unbelief, for when the light comes, the heart of the people is always right.
If there had been any unbelief in Mary, that could not prevent God from accomplishing his work in any other way which he might choose. But she is called blessed, because she received by faith the blessing offered to her, and opened up the way to God for its accomplishment.
God is an inexhaustible source of all we need.
Our unbelief is discovered in how little we avail ourselves of this infinite fountain
Father, O father! what do we here In this land of unbelief and fear?
We all have in our hearts some areas of unbelief.
Let us say to the Lord: I believe! Help my unbelief.
Each of those churches shows certain books, which they call revelation, or the Word of God. The Jews say that their Word of God was given by God to Moses face to face; the Christians say, that their Word of God came by divine inspiration; and the Turks say, that their Word of God (the Koran) was brought by an angel from heaven. Each of those churches accuses the other of unbelief; and, for my own part, I disbelieve them all.
I do not believe in the creed professed by any church that I know of.
Each of these churches accuse the other of unbelief; and for my part, I disbelieve them all.
If we let ourselves believe that man began with divine grace, that he forfeited this by sin, and that he can be redeemed only by divine grace through the crucified Christ, then we shall find peace of mind never granted to philosophers. He who cannot believe is cursed, for he reveals by his unbelief that God has not chosen to give him grace.
He who cannot believe is cursed, for he reveals by his unbelief that God has not chosen to give him grace.
There are many different kinds of doubt.
When we doubt the future, we call it worry. When doubt other people we call is suspicion. When we doubt ourselves we call it inferiority. When we doubt God we call it unbelief. When we doubt what we hear on television we call it intelligence! When we doubt everything we call it cynicism or skepticism.
There is no worse sin than unbelief toward the gospel.
