Quote of the Day – Dr. Adrian Rogers


“You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the industrious out of it. You don’t multiply wealth by dividing it. Government cannot give anything to anybody that it doesn’t first take from somebody else. Whenever somebody receives something without working for it, somebody else has to work for it without receiving. The worst thing that can happen to a nation is for half of the people to get the idea they don’t have to work because somebody else will work for them, and the other half to get the idea that it does no good to work because they don’t get to enjoy the fruit of their labor.”

From Dr. Adrian Rogers – from his1996 work Ten Secrets for a Successful Family

  1. Dr. Rogers, rest his soul, was a brilliant man and a dedicated pastor. He seldom talked politics from the pulpit, and even this statement is not really political. It is COMMON SENSE. Even though he has gone to be with our Savior, you can still hear his sermons at http://www.lwf.org
