Quotes by Billy Sunday


Hell is the highest reward that the devil can offer you for being a servant of his.


I’m against sin. I’ll kick it as long as I’ve got a foot, and I’ll fight it as long as I’ve got a fist. I’ll butt it as long as I’ve got a head. I’ll bite it as long as I’ve got a tooth. And when I’m old and fistless and footless and toothless, I’ll gum it till I go home to Glory and it goes home to perdition!


If you have no joy, there’s a leak in your Christianity somewhere.


The fellow that has no money is poor. The fellow that has nothing but money is poorer still.


There are two hundred and fifty-six names given in the Bible for the Lord Jesus Christ, and I suppose this was because He was infinitely beyond all that any one name could express.


Deathbed repentance is burning the candle of life in the service of the devil, and then blowing the smoke into the face of God.


If you are strangers to prayer you are strangers to power


Whiskey and beer are all right in their place, but their place is in hell…. The saloon is the sum of all villainies. It is worse than war or pestilence. It is the crime of crimes. It is parent of crimes and the mother of sins. It is the appalling source of misery and crime in the land and the principal cause of crime. It is the source of three-fourths of the taxes to support that crime. And to license such an incarnate fiend of hell is the dirtiest, low-down, damnable business on top of this old earth.


Going to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than going to a garage makes you an automobile.
