|A Fallen Church | Charles E. Orr||Church|
It is surpassing strange that one reformation does not profit by the downfall of the preceding ones.... The worldliness they could not once tolerate they are now themselves engaging in. Then the spiritual ones form another movement....

|A Religious Controversy | Charles E. Orr||Church|
Mr. W.—If his Bible says we can live in this world without sin, it's not like mine.
Mrs. W.—I'll get your Bible and let you read.... Turn and read Acts 4:12.
Mr. W.—Is Acts in the Old Testament or the New?

|Discerning the Lord’s Body | Harlan D. Sorrell, 2011||Church|
The essence of Christ's true body is directly related to spiritual status, and spiritual meat and drink. Let us now examine the Word of God and examine our own selves to see if we discern the Lord's body and if we are really a part of it.

|Fellowship Is of the Spirit | Jennie C. Rutty, 1900||Church|
A great many... have only an intellectual understanding without an actual experience in the soul. They... are often received as the children of God by those who do not discern between the "fellowship of the Spirit" and a mere fellowship of doctrine.

|Foundation Truth, Number 10 (Summer 2004) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2004||Church|
"Can I find, do you think, one answer, one description, which will suit you all—fisherman, mothers, boys and girls, artists, merchants, gentlemen, the old man and the little child? Yes, I can.... Each of you, without exception, might write this—I am a servant.

It is all uphill to the top of the mountains. Also, for people to flow together in this manner, they must melt. There are a whole lot of things that can only work in the Bible pattern if the melting occurs.

The men were getting pretty discouraged, and Major Powell would tell them, "Hang on, we'll make it through, we've got to explore this canyon. That's what we set out to do." ...It was starting to look more promising, and then those kind of rocks again.

|Foundation Truth, Number 18 (Summer 2007) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2007||Church|
Immediately I got the money, the Lord's voice again came to me saying: "Send most of the money to your family." Whenever the Lord speaks, there is a finality and so joyous a conviction that it cannot be easily mistaken.

|Foundation Truth, Number 19 (Winter 2008) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2008||Church|
The prophecies were intended for the comfort and edification of those who have paid the price of buying the truth. They cannot be properly understood in all the fullness of their blessing until this step is taken.

|Foundation Truth, Number 29 (Winter 2012) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2011||Church|
...a man is still a man... still just an earthen vessel.... When God has finished beating the mountains small with a worm, then that worm is still a worm—a worm used of God.... "When the work of the Lord is done right, there is no room for the flesh to glory."

|Foundation Truth, Number 2 (Spring/Summer 2000) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2000||Church|
The unity that Paul and Apollos had was not a negotiated one.... The essence of that unity came from each being in unity with God. This produced a oneness in Him that did not depend on careful posturing and positioning with each other.

|Foundation Truth, Number 8 (Spring 2003) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2003||Church|
God, in dealing with us, does not take away our humanity.... the work of God in the earth—His church overall and each member's individual walk with God—can be a perfect blend of the Divine and the human if we allow the Lord to have His way.

|God or a System: Which? | Lottie L. Jarvis||Church|
To love God personally and perfectly will produce the most perfect obedience and the most perfect heroism, and the most perfect destiny of which the soul is capable.... to obey Him with supreme personal loyalty, is our only true holiness and service.

|Having a Spiritual Congregation | Charles E. Orr||Church|
To make this still plainer and more comprehensive, a preacher is to be so filled with Christ and have the Spirit of discernment that he will never let a soul up from the altar until he knows that soul has been forgiven of God.

|How I Found the Church of God | Mark P. Spinks, 2008||Church|
I prayed earnestly that God would direct me where I should live and labor next. I was plainly directed to a certain congregation, and it was in that place that I first plainly and clearly saw the church of God functioning as it should.

|Musical Instruments and Worship | Archie Souder||Church|
This subject of music in the church is surely a spiritual subject. Now, dear reader, get your Bible out before you read any farther, as this question can only be answered by the Word of God. I am going to deal wholly with God's Word.

|Natural vs. Spiritual Relationships | Mark P. Spinks||Church|
The question naturally arises: What if there is a conflict between the natural (family) relationship and the spiritual relationship to God?... Our relationship to God is more important than anything else.

|The Church of God | Daniel S. Warner||Church|
The church is the body of Christ. And being the body of Christ, it necessarily includes all His members. Therefore to call an earthly building the church is ridiculous, and to call an organized division the church is subverting the truth.

|The Travail of Zion | Beverly Carradine, 1910||Church|
Travail is one of the sharpest pains known in the physical realm.... [God] applies it to the church, and says that such a suffering, burden, and agonizing cry must come on His people, before sons and daughters are born unto Him.
