The safest road to hell is a gradual one. This safe road has a gentle slope, without turns, without milestones, without signposts, without warnings.
C. S. Lewis
Enemy-occupied territory- that is what the world is.
C. S. Lewis
We put ourselves there. The door to hell is locked from the inside.
James A. Pike
My main ambition in life is to be on the devil’s most wanted list.
No man can estimate what is really happening at the present. All we do know, and that to a large extent by direct experience, is that evil labors with vast power and perpetual success- in vain: preparing always only the soil for unexpected good to sprout in.
J. R. R. Tolkien
Between us and heaven or hell there is only life, which is the frailest thing in the world.
Nothing sets a person so much out of the devil’s reach as humility.
To give you an idea of the depth of Jesus’ suffering, being abandoned by God is the definition of hell.
Satan watcheth for those vessels that sail without a convoy.
When the devil tries to remind you of your past, just turn around and remind him of his future.
When a Christian shuns fellowship with other Christians, the devil smiles. When he stops studying the Bible, the devil laughs. When he stops praying, the devil shouts for joy.
Corrie Ten Boom
I believe Satan to exist for two reasons: first, the Bible says so, and second, I’ve done business with him.
Dwight L. Moody
It is Satan’s custom by small sins to draw us to greater, as the little sticks set the great ones on fire, and a wisp of straw kindles a block of wood.
I know well that when Christ is nearest, Satan is also busiest.
Robert Murray M’Cheyne
You are more evil than you have ever feared, and more loved than you have ever hoped.
One phrase summarizes the horror of hell. “God isn’t there.”
When flatterers meet, the devil goes to dinner.
The devil, that old stager, who leads downward, perhaps, but fiddles all the way!
God would never permit evil if he could not bring good out of evil.
The Devil will use our words and his dictionary.
Three-hundred million years from now, the only thing that will matter is whether you’re in Heaven or in Hell.
When the devil tries to remind you of your past,
Just turn around and remind him of his future.
The devil enjoys hearing a prayer that is addressed to an audience.
The devil shapes himself to the fashions of all men. If he meets with a proud man, or a prodigal man, then he makes himself a flatterer; if a covetous man, then he comes with a reward in his hand. He hath an apple for Eve, a grape for Noah, a change of raiment for Gehazi, a bag for Judas. He can dish out his meat for all palates; he hath a last to fit every shoe; he hath something to please all conditions.
God judged it better to bring good out of evil than to suffer no evil to exist.
Augustine of Hippo
When you steal a penny the devil makes a fortune.
I think earth, if chosen instead of Heaven, will turn out to have been, all along, only a region in Hell; and earth, if put second to Heaven, to have been from the beginning a part of Heaven itself.
C. S. Lewis
Why should anyone be shattered by the thought of hell? It is not compulsory for anyone to go there.
When a man is getting better, he understands more and more clearly the evil that is still in him. When a man is getting worse, he understands his own badness less and less.
C. S. Lewis
