"In the judgment of Lewis Sperry Chafer, the college was to be 'a Bible teacher's seminary'; that is, its purpose was to train men in the knowledge of the Bible so that they would be effective communicators of it whether they assumed pastorates, became foreign missionaries, or led Bible institutes."
"There is no Biblical ground for the theory that even the minutest detail of the eternal purpose of God will ever be uncertain because of a supposed unanticipated action of the human will. God cannot be disappointed, defeated, or surprised."
"There is no payment required, past, present, or future. God saves unmeriting sinners in unrelated, unrecompensed, unconditioned, sovereign grace."
"Encouraging men to believe that God will be merciful is not preaching the gospel. All such preaching really ignores the cross. Salvation is not a present act of generosity and leniency on the part of God. Salvation is possible because the love of God has already provided all that a sinner can ever need. The sinner is not saved by pleading with God for His kindness: he is saved by believing that God has been kind. Such is the exact place of the cross in the message of the gospel."
"Christ did not die to show us how to die; He died that we might not die."
