Quotes to Consider:
Thomas Scott: "We ought to serve the Lord with our whole body and
soul, and with every endowment or capacity we possess; our religious
affections cannot be too intense, if properly directed; nor our
expressions of them too strong, provided ‘all be done decently and
in order,’ according to the spirit of the dispensation under which
Brian Edwards: "Dancing among the Jews was an entirely single-sex
activity. As a matter of fact we never read in the Old Testament of
men dancing. It was always only the women with women. Not men with
men, least of all men with women. Similarly dancing was never a
spectator entertainment. It was never a performance. It was always a
spontaneous response to a particular situation. Rehearsal and
planned movements seem to be unknown in the Old Testament. At the
most dance was an unusual, spontaneous and enthusiastic response to
the goodness and kindness of God" (Shall We Dance?, pp.
C. H. Spurgeon: "I do not believe we can preach the gospel . . .
unless we preach the sovereignty of God in His dispensation of
grace; nor unless we exalt the electing, unchangeable, eternal,
immutable, conquering love of Jehovah; nor do I think we can preach
the gospel unless we base it upon the special and particular
redemption of His elect and chosen people which Christ wrought out
upon the Cross; nor can I comprehend a gospel which lets saints fall
away after they are called."
Francis Turretin on John 3:16: "The love treated of in John 3:16 . .
. cannot be universal towards all and every one, but special towards
a few . . . because the end of that love which God intends is the
salvation of those whom He pursues with such love . . . If therefore
God sent Christ for that end, that through Him the world might be
saved, He must either have failed of His end, or the world must
necessarily be saved in fact. But it is certain that not the whole
world, but only those chosen out of the world are saved; therefore,
to them properly has this love reference . . ."
