Quotes by William Jenkyn


Unbelief is the shied of every sin.


Our father was Adam, our grandfather dust, our great-grandfather nothing.


As the wicked are hurt by the best things, so the godly are bettered by the worst.


The devil shapes himself to the fashions of all men. If he meets with a proud man, or a prodigal man, then he makes himself a flatterer; if a covetous man, then he comes with a reward in his hand. He has an apple for Eve, a grape for Noah, a change of raiment for Gehazi, a bag for Judas. He can dish out his meat for all palates; he has a mold to fit every shoe; he has something to please all conditions.


Only a Christian of strong grace can bear the strong wine of commendation without the spiritual intoxication.


To forsake Christ for the world, is to leave a treasure for a trifle, eternity for a moment, reality for a shadow.
