In God there is no was or will be, but a continuous and unbroken is. In him, history and prophecy are one and the same.
— A. W. Tozer
If every attribute of the Deity were a distinct member, purity would be the form, the soul, the spirit to animate them. Without holiness, his patience would be an indulgence to sin, his mercy a fondness, his wrath a madness, his power a tyranny, his wisdom an unworthy subtlety. Holiness gives decorum to them all.
— Stephen Charnock
