Who Said It?

"With quotes we see and hear, and popular “sayings” we hold dear, the question is: where did those quotes come from?

From the Bible: ”God helps those that help themselves!” Nope! It’s found in the 1736 edition of Poor Richard’s Almanack published by Benjamin Franklin.

How about ”Money is the root of all evil?” The Bible says, “The LOVE of money is at the root of all evil.”

How about Gandhi’s famous: “Be the change you wish to see in the world!” There is no evidence he ever said it. Or John Wesley’s famous: “Do all the good you can, by all the means you can."

There are even more quotes NOT found in the Bible:
“Cleanliness is next to godliness!”
“Spare the rod, spoil the child!”
“Moderation in all things!”
“This too shall pass.”

Engage with the Bible. Read it for yourself, in all that it does say!"
