Quotes by William Jenkyn

1

Unbelief is the shied of every sin.

2

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

3

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

4

The devil shapes himself to the fashions of all men. If he meet with a proud man, or a prodigal man, then he makes himself a flatterer; it a covetous man, then he comes with a reward in his hand. He hath 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 hath a last to fit every shoe; he hath something to please all conditions.

5

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

6

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