Christian quotes about teachers

“A teacher who is not dogmatic is simply a teacher who is not teaching.” G.K. Chesterton

“Good teachers know how to bring out the best in students.” – Charles Kuralt

“The influence of a good teacher can never be erased.”

“It takes a big heart to help shape little minds.”

The Old Testament, which contained, in seed, all the principles of the New, allowed no regular church office to any woman. When a few of that sex were employed as mouthpieces of God, it was in an office purely extraordinary, and in which they could produce a supernatural attestation of their commission. No woman ever ministered at the altar, as either priest or Levite. No female elder was ever seen in a Hebrew congregation. No woman ever sat on the throne of the theocracy, except the pagan usurper and murderess, Athaliah. Now…this Old Testament principle of ministry is carried over to a degree in the New Testament where we find the Christian congregations with elders, teachers, and deacons, and its women invariably keeping silence in the assembly.” Robert Dabney

“Teachers who love teaching, teach children to love learning.”

“The task of the modern educator is not to cut down jungles, but to irrigate deserts.” C.S. Lewis

“Public school teachers are the new priesthood while traditional religion is ridiculed and maligned.” Ann Coulter

“Every church court, every pastor, missionary, and ruling elder, every Sabbath-schoolteacher, and colporteur, out of love for the generation to come, should make the establishment of Family-Worship an object of separate and earnest endeavor. Every father of a family should consider himself as charged with the souls of those with whom he hopes to leave behind him, and as contributing to the future propagation of the truth, by every act of devotion performed in his house. Wherever he has a tent, God should have an altar.” James Alexander

“It is not the thinker who is the true king of men, as we sometimes hear it proudly said. We need one who will not only show, but be the Truth; who will not only point, but open and be the way; who will not only communicate thought, but give, because He is the Life. Not the rabbi’s pulpit, nor the teacher’s desk, still less the gilded chairs of earthly monarchs, least of all the tents of conquerors, are the throne of the true king. He rules from the cross.” Alexander MacLaren
