Packer Quotes By Boyd K. Packer

We could be like a father determined to provide everything for his family. He devotes every energy to that end and succeeds; only then does he discover that what they needed most, to be together as a family, has been neglected. And he reaps sorrow in place of contentment. — Boyd K. Packer

Packer Quotes By J.I. Packer

Our task is to take suffering in stride, not as if it is a pleasure (it isn't), but in the knowledge that God will not let it overwhelm us and that He will use it, by His own supernatural alchemy, to three good ends, at least. 1) Our suffering produces character; 2) Our suffering glorifies God; 3) Suffering fulfills the law of the harvest (John 12:24), Rediscovering Holiness by J.I. Packer, pgs. 232-239. — J.I. Packer

Packer Quotes By George Packer

This isn't to deny that there were fierce arguments, at the time and ever since, about the causes and goals of both the Civil War and the Second World War. But 1861 and 1941 each created a common national narrative (which happened to be the victors' narrative): both wars were about the country's survival and the expansion of the freedoms on which it was founded. Nothing like this consensus has formed around September 11th ... Indeed, the decade since the attacks has destroyed the very possibility of a common national narrative in this country. — George Packer

Packer Quotes By J.I. Packer

There are ministers who never speak of repentance or self-denial. Naturally they are popular, but they are false prophets. — J.I. Packer

Packer Quotes By Boyd K. Packer

There is little to be gained by seeking after the mysteries, for there is hardly time in a lifetime to master the plain and precious things. — Boyd K. Packer

Packer Quotes By Alistair Begg

I am fat and flabby and that Dr. J. I. Packer is right when he says, "Here then is the root cause of our moral flabbiness; we have neglected God's Law."3 — Alistair Begg

Packer Quotes By Boyd K. Packer

Without a knowledge of the gospel plan, transgression seems natural, innocent, even justified. — Boyd K. Packer

Packer Quotes By Laurence Fox

I'm a very good packer, but I probably take too much in the way of toiletries. You only really need a toothbrush, as most places you go to have a bar of soap and some shampoo. — Laurence Fox

Packer Quotes By Billy Packer

You have no chance at getting a rebound unless you make it. — Billy Packer

Packer Quotes By J.I. Packer

The Life of true holiness is rooted in the soil of awed adoration — J.I. Packer

Packer Quotes By Kerry Packer

If a working class Englishman saw a bloke drive past in a Rolls-Royce, he'd say to himself "Come the social revolution and we'll take that away from you, mate". Whereas if his American counterpart saw a bloke drive past in a Cadillac he'd say "One day I'm going to own one of those". To my way of thinking the first attitude is wrong. The latter is right. — Kerry Packer

Packer Quotes By Boyd K. Packer

Addiction has the capacity to disconnect the human will and nullify moral agency. It can rob one of the power to decide. — Boyd K. Packer

Packer Quotes By Don DeLillo

The instant he knew he loved her, she slipped down his body and out of his arms. — Don DeLillo

Packer Quotes By George Packer

I've been interested in American politics since I was eight. That was in 1968. It was an interesting year. I was a huge Eugene McCarthy supporter, so I guess he was the first senator I really knew about and cared about. — George Packer

Packer Quotes By J.I. Packer

The words and lives of Christian men must be in continual process of reformation by the written Word of their God. This means that ecclesiastical traditions and private theological speculations may never be identified with the word which God speaks, but are to be classed among the words of men which the Word of God must reform. — J.I. Packer

Packer Quotes By J.I. Packer

The simple statement, 'God is for us', is in truth one of the richest and weightiest utterances that the Bible contains. — J.I. Packer

Packer Quotes By J.I. Packer

God answers the prayer we ought to have made rather than the prayer we did make. — J.I. Packer

Packer Quotes By J.I. Packer

The kingdom arrived with Jesus; indeed, one might say that as Son of God incarnate, Jesus is the kingdom of God in person. His rule over Christians is regal in the full-blooded biblical sense, personal, direct, and absolute. His claims are the claims of God, overriding those of man. Yet his rule is not tyranny, for King Jesus is his people's servant, their shepherd and champion, ordering all things for their protection and enrichment. "My yoke is easy, and my burden is light" (Matthew 11:30). — J.I. Packer

Packer Quotes By J.I. Packer

The Holy Spirit is God the evangelist. — J.I. Packer

Packer Quotes By Boyd K. Packer

We accept the responsibility to preach the gospel to every person on earth. And if the question is asked, you mean you are out to convert the entire world? The answer is, 'yes'. We will try to reach every living soul. — Boyd K. Packer

Packer Quotes By George Packer

What the Web has never figured out is how to pay for reporting, which, with the collapse of print newspapers, is in desperately short supply, and without which even the most prolific commenters will someday run out of things to say. — George Packer

Packer Quotes By George Packer

I am reading "The Yellow Birds" by Kevin Powers and "Redeployment" by Phil Klay . Both Powers and Klay are Iraq War vets. Klay's stories are remarkable. — George Packer

Beauties" by Anton Chekhov, "The Doll's House" by Katherine Mansfield, "A Perfect Day for Bananafish" by J. D. Salinger, "Brownies" or "Drinking Coffee Elsewhere" both by ZZ Packer, "In the Cemetery Where Al Jolson Is Buried" by Amy Hempel, "Fat" by Raymond Carver, "Indian Camp — Gabrielle Zevin

Packer Quotes By Erica Packer

It is a transition, from modelling to singing, but for me it's a natural progression. The modelling was something I did to travel the world and make some money and end up doing what I want to do. It was a way for me to go gather the experience to write an album and now sing about it. — Erica Packer

Packer Quotes By George Packer

The creation of virtual worlds had taken the place of advances in the physical world. "You can say the whole Internet has something very escapist to it, — George Packer

Packer Quotes By J.I. Packer

Sanctification has a double aspect. Its positive side is vivification, the growing and maturing of the new man; its negative side is mortification, the weakening and killing of the old man. — J.I. Packer

Packer Quotes By J.I. Packer

The regular shape of guidance is that God teaches us to apply revealed principles of action, both positive and negative; to observe parameters and limits of behavior that the Bible lays down; and thus to follow the path of faithful obedience and true wisdom, in fellowship with the Lord our shepherd who by his Spirit leads us so to do. — J.I. Packer

Packer Quotes By Boyd K. Packer

Tolerance is a virtue, but like all virtues, when exaggerated, it transforms itself into a vice. We need to be careful of the 'tolerance trap' so that we are not swallowed up in it. The permissiveness afforded by the weakening of the laws of the land to tolerate legalized acts of immorality does not reduce the serious spiritual consequence that is the result of the violation of God's law of chastity. — Boyd K. Packer

Packer Quotes By George Packer

Since I was a kid. I had this series by Ballantine Books about the history of World Wars I and II. In my 20s, it was the Vietnam War literature of novelists like Tim O'Brien, Philip Caputo, and Tobias Wolff, and then nonfiction such as "A Bright Shining Lie" by Neil Sheehan and "The Best and Brightest" by David Halberstam . Those are the two best histories of Vietnam. — George Packer

Packer Quotes By Mark Darrah

Fear is a cheap emotion, but I'm not going to tell you there's nothing to be frightened of. If Alfred Packer's cannibalism victims woke up the morning of their deaths humming "Don't Worry, Be Happy," they were mistaken. — Mark Darrah

Packer Quotes By David Packer

Make a technical contribution; innovate, don't emulate. — David Packer

Packer Quotes By James Packer

I have a million small memories that will sustain me through life. — James Packer

Packer Quotes By Ann Packer

Bill supposed that for every child there was a defining age, a fixed reference point in relation to which his parents would always view him; whereas the child's own truest self would always be the present one. — Ann Packer

Packer Quotes By J.I. Packer

God as a helpless baby, he could only lie, stare, wriggle, make noises. The more you think about it, the more staggering it gets! — J.I. Packer

Packer Quotes By Boyd K. Packer

Inherent in the ordination to be bishop is both the right and the obligation to be directed by inspiration. — Boyd K. Packer

Packer Quotes By Don DeLillo

Packer Quotes By Boyd K. Packer

Music can set an atmosphere of worship which invites [the] spirit of revelation, of testimony. — Boyd K. Packer

Packer Quotes By Boyd K. Packer

You always hold the key of repentance to unlock the prison door. If they throw the word diversity at you, grab hold of it and say, "I am already diverse, and I intend to stay diverse." If the word is tolerance, grab that one, too, saying, "I expect you to be tolerant of my lifestyle-obedience, integrity, abstinence, repentance." If the word is choice, tell them you choose good, old-fashioned morality. — Boyd K. Packer

Packer Quotes By James Packer

The last thing I think I am is perfect. I'm just trying to do the best job I can. I'm trying to be the best father I can to my kids. I'm trying to do the best job I can running my business. — James Packer

Packer Quotes By Boyd K. Packer

His judgments are just; His mercy without limit; His power to compensate beyond any earthly comparison. — Boyd K. Packer

Packer Quotes By J.I. Packer

C. H. Spurgeon was once asked if he could reconcile these two truths to each other. "I wouldn't try," he replied; "I never reconcile friends." Friends? - yes, friends. This is the point that we have to grasp. In the Bible, divine sovereignty and human responsibility are not enemies. They are not uneasy neighbors; they are not in an endless state of cold war with each other. They are friends, and they work together. — J.I. Packer

Packer Quotes By Will Packer

People that I know, the vast majority, who are successful work really, really hard. Sure, there's some people that either get lucky or inherited it or don't have to work hard for some reason, but the vast majority who are successful work really, really hard. — Will Packer

Packer Quotes By Boyd K. Packer

One thing is very clear: the safest place and the best protection against the moral and spiritual diseases is a stable home and family. This has always been true; it will be true forever. We must keep that foremost in our minds. The scriptures speak of 'the shield of faith wherewith,' the Lord said, 'ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked' (D&C 27:17). This shield of faith is best fabricated in a cottage industry. While the shield can be polished in classes in the Church and in activities, it is meant to be handcrafted in the home and fitted to each individual. — Boyd K. Packer

Packer Quotes By Boyd K. Packer

Those who choose, conduct, present, and accompany the music may influence the spirit of reverence ... more than a speaker does. — Boyd K. Packer

Packer Quotes By J.I. Packer

You thank God [for your salvation] because you do not attribute your repenting and believing to your own wisdom, or prudence, or sound judgment, or good sense. — J.I. Packer

Packer Quotes By James Packer

I do 90 minutes of exercise a day, and obviously I have the lap band ... (it's) about being fitter, happier and more active.' But he admitted: 'I'm an idiot. I (still) smoke and do all those things I shouldn't do. — James Packer

Packer Quotes By J.I. Packer

Man is a responsible moral agent, though he is also divinely controlled; man is divinely controlled, though he is also a responsible moral agent. — J.I. Packer

Packer Quotes By J.I. Packer

What makes life worthwhile is having a big enough objective, something which catches our imagination and lays hold of our allegiance, and this the Christian has in a way that no other person has. For what higher, more exalted, and more compelling goal can there be than to know God? — J.I. Packer

Packer Quotes By J.I. Packer

Positively, it is a summons to us to recognize that God the Creator is transcendent, mysterious and inscrutable, beyond the range of any imagining or philosophical guesswork of which we are capable-and hence a summons to us to humble ourselves, to listen — J.I. Packer

Packer Quotes By Boyd K. Packer

The flak is always the heaviest closest to the target — Boyd K. Packer

Packer Quotes By Brett Favre

I've always been a Packer, always will be a Packer. — Brett Favre

Packer Quotes By J.I. Packer

We need to discover all over again that worship is natural to the Christian, as it was to the godly Israelites who wrote the psalms, and that the habit of celebrating the greatness and graciousness of God yields an endless flow of thankfulness, joy, and zeal. — J.I. Packer

Packer Quotes By Boyd K. Packer

The power of procreation is not an incidental part of the plan; it is the plan of happiness. — Boyd K. Packer

Packer Quotes By Boyd K. Packer

Packer Quotes By Boyd K. Packer

Packer Quotes By J.I. Packer

The Puritan ethic of marriage was first to look not for a partner whom you do love passionately at this moment but rather for one whom you can love steadily as your best friend for life, then to proceed with God's help to do just that. — J.I. Packer

Packer Quotes By J.I. Packer

Maturity is a compound of wisdom, goodwill, resilience, and creativity. — J.I. Packer

Packer Quotes By J.I. Packer

Genuine holiness is genuine Christlikeness, and genuine Christlikeness is genuine humanness - the only genuine humanness there is. — J.I. Packer

Packer Quotes By Donald Driver

I've always said I never want to wear another uniform. I've always said that I owe it to the fans to retire as a Packer. I feel like I can still play, but if I can't play for my organization, then I can't play for anyone else. — Donald Driver

Packer Quotes By J.I. Packer

God has not abandoned us any more than he abandoned Job. He never abandons anyone on whom he has set his love; nor does Christ, the good shepherd, ever lose track of his sheep. — J.I. Packer

Packer Quotes By J.I. Packer

God is good to all in some ways and to some in all ways. — J.I. Packer

Packer Quotes By Kit Harington

I'm a terrible packer. I don't pack lots and lots because I think I'll wear everything, I pack a lot because I never know what I'm going to need. I always go over the weight limit. — Kit Harington

Packer Quotes By Boyd K. Packer

The Spirit is a voice that one feels more than hears. — Boyd K. Packer

Packer Quotes By J.I. Packer

God loves people because he has chosen to love them - as Charles Wesley put it, "he hath loved us, he hath loved us, because he would love" (an echo of Deut 7:7-8) - and no reason for his love can be given except his own sovereign good pleasure. — J.I. Packer

Packer Quotes By J.I. Packer

Packer Quotes By J.I. Packer

Part of the answer to the question that life's roller-coaster ride repeatedly raises, why has this happened to me? is always: it is moral training and discipline, planned by my Heavenly Father to help me forward along the path of Chrislike virtue. — J.I. Packer

Packer Quotes By J.I. Packer

Underlying the preaching of the Puritans are three basic axioms: 1. The unique place of preaching is to convert, feed and sustain, 2. The life of the preacher must radiate the reality of what he preaches, 3. Prayer and solid Bible study are basic to effective preaching. — J.I. Packer

Packer Quotes By J.I. Packer

For love to be replaced by resentful contempt between husband and wife, or for that matter between parent and child, or colleague and colleague, is a negation of holiness, whatever stuff one may display in books or relay from pulpits and platforms. — J.I. Packer

Packer Quotes By J.I. Packer

Wisdom and humility demand that we consider what our brothers and sisters through the ages have done by way of catechizing and discipling, and test the merit of these efforts by consideration of the biblical data. We are most unwise to try to continually reinvent the catechetical wheel or to assume that we are more likely than our forebears to be faithful to Scripture. Our — J.I. Packer

Packer Quotes By J.I. Packer

Has the word propitiation any place in your Christianity? In the faith of the New Testament it is central. The love of God, the taking of human form by the Son, the meaning of the cross, Christ's heavenly intercession, the way of salvation-all are to be explained in terms of itand any explanation from which the thought of propitiation is missing will be incomplete, and indeed actually misleading, by New Testament standards — J.I. Packer

Packer Quotes By J.I. Packer

Knowing God is more than knowing about him; it is a matter of dealing with him as he opens up to you, and being dealt with by him as he takes knowledge of you. Knowing about him is a necessary precondition of trusting in him ('how could they have faith in one they had never heard of?' [Romans 10:4 NEB]), but the width of our knowledge about him is no gauge of the depth of our knowledge of him (pp. 39-40). — J.I. Packer

Packer Quotes By Toni Packer

The emergence and blossoming of understanding, love, and intelligence has nothing to do with any tradition, no matter how ancient or impressive-it has nothing to do with time. It happens on its own when a human being questions, wonders, inquires, listens, and looks without getting stuck in fear, pleasure, and pain. When self-concern is quiet, in abeyance, heaven and earth are open. — Toni Packer

Packer Quotes By J.I. Packer

The fruit of wisdom is Christlikeness, peace, humility and love. And, the root of it is faith in Christ as the manifested wisdom of God — J.I. Packer

Packer Quotes By Boyd K. Packer

Keep the fire of your testimony of the restored gospel and your witness of our Redeemer burning so brightly that our children can warm their hands by the fire of your faith. — Boyd K. Packer

Packer Quotes By Boyd K. Packer

Take hold of your life and order yourself to be valiant. — Boyd K. Packer

Packer Quotes By J.I. Packer

The gospel does in truth proclaim the redemption of reason. Obscurantism is always evil, and wilful error is always sin., All truth is God's truth; facts, as such, are sacred, and nothing is more un-Christian than to run away from them. — J.I. Packer

Packer Quotes By J.I. Packer

Disregard the study of God, and you sentence yourself to stumble and blunder through life blindfolded, as it were, with no sense of direction and no understanding of what surrounds you. — J.I. Packer

Packer Quotes By J.I. Packer

All true theology has an evangelistic thrust, and all true evangelism is theology in action. — J.I. Packer

Packer Quotes By Donald Driver

I was so raw I didn't know about the Lambeau Leap-a Packer player celebrates catching a touchdown by leaping into the stands. It was started by Leroy Butler years before and has been copied by players all over the league. Don't be fooled, though. The only legitimate Lambeau Leap is celebrated by a Packer at Lambeau Field. — Donald Driver

Packer Quotes By Ray Nitschke

Packer fans are nuts, man. — Ray Nitschke

Packer Quotes By Boyd K. Packer

I hope to be judged as good a man as my father. Before I hear those words "well done" from my Heavenly Father, I hope to first hear them from my mortal father. — Boyd K. Packer

Packer Quotes By J.I. Packer

Our best works are shot through with sin and contain something for which we need to be forgiven. — J.I. Packer

Packer Quotes By George Packer

When I interviewed Paul Bremer in his office he had almost no books on his shelves. He had a couple of management books, like "Leadership" by Rudolph Giuliani . I didn't take it as an encouraging sign. — George Packer

Packer Quotes By Boyd K. Packer

Family time is sacred time and should be protected and respected. — Boyd K. Packer

Packer Quotes By George Packer

Inequality saps the will to conceive of ambitious solutions to large collective problems, because those problems no longer seem very collective. — George Packer

Packer Quotes By Ann Packer

You know what 'congregate' means? It's from the Latin. 'Greg' means herd. 'Con' means with. We're with our herd. — Ann Packer
