Best Quotes about Christians and christianity
He who begins by loving Christianity better than truth, will proceed by loving his own sect or church better than Christianity, and end in loving himself better than all.
Coleridge, Samuel Taylor
If you make a great deal of Christ, He will make a great deal of you; But it you make but little of Christ, He will make but little of you.
Torrey, R. A.
The fear of hell, or aiming to be blest, savors too much of private interest.
A rule I have had for years is: to treat the Lord Jesus Christ as a personal friend. His is not a creed, a mere doctrine, but it is He Himself we have.
Moody, Dwight L.
The question is not How much may I indulge in and still be saved. God forbid! I must rather ask, What about Christ's will and the example I set for my fellow Christians?
Cook, Robert A.
Christianity is either relevant all the time or useless anytime. It is not just a phase of life; it is life itself.
Christianity provides a unified answer for the whole of life.
What the world requires of the Christians is that they should continue to be Christians.
There are many of us that are willing to do great things for the Lord, but few of us are willing to do little things.
Moody, Dwight L.
Protestantism has the method of Jesus with His secret too much left out of mind; Catholicism has His secret with His method too much left out of mind; neither has His unerring balance, His intuition, His sweet reasonableness. But both have hold of a great truth, and get from it a great power.
Scratch the Christian and you find the pagan -- spoiled.
A strong argument for the religion of Christ is this -- that offences against Charity are about the only ones which men on their death-beds can be made -- not to understand -- but to feel -- as crime.
Poe, Edgar Allan
What if men take to following where He leads, weary of mumbling Athanasian creeds?
The great difference between present-day Christianity and that of which we read in these letters is that to us it is primarily a performance, to them it was a real experience. To these men it is quite plainly the invasion of their lives by a new quality of life altogether. They do not hesitate to describe this as Christ living in them.
Christianity has operated with an unmitigated arrogance and cruelty -- necessarily, since a religion ordinarily imposes on those who have discovered the true faith the spiritual duty of liberating the infidels.
No one is without Christianity, if we agree on what we mean by that word. It is every individual's individual code of behavior by means of which he makes himself a better human being than his nature wants to be, if he followed his nature only. Whatever its symbol -- cross or crescent or whatever -- that symbol is man's reminder of his duty inside the human race.
Many people profess Christianity. Very few live it-almost none. And when you live it people may think you're crazy. It has been truthfully said that the world is equally shocked by one who repudiates Christianity as by one who practices it.
God doesn't have any grandchildren.
Jones, Eli Stanley
Christians are rare people on earth.
Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion; it is like a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ.
Christianity is completed Judaism or it is nothing.
To be like Christ is to be a Christian.
If Jesus Christ be God and died for me, then no sacrifice can be too great for me to make for Him.
Studd, C. T.
Wherever there are walls I shall inscribe this eternal accusation against Christianity upon them -- I can write in letters which make even the blind see. I call Christianity the one great curse, the one great intrinsic depravity, the one great instinct for revenge for which no expedient is sufficiently poisonous, secret, subterranean, petty -- I call it the one immortal blemish of mankind.
Christianity makes suffering contagious.
Christianity, with its doctrine of humility, of forgiveness, of love, is incompatible with the state, with its haughtiness, its violence, its punishment and its wars.
Tolstoy, Count Leo
The Three in One, the One in Three? Not so! To my own Gods I go. It may be they shall give me greater ease than your cold Christ and tangled Trinities.
A Christian is nothing but a sinful man who has put himself to school for Christ for the honest purpose of becoming better.
Beecher, Henry Ward
A good example is far better than a good precept.
Moody, Dwight L.
The Christian religion, though scattered and abroad will in the end gather itself together at the foot of the cross.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
There were honest people long before there were Christians and there are, God be praised, still honest people where there are no Christians. It could therefore easily be possible that people are Christians because true Christianity corresponds to what they would have been even if Christianity did not exist.
Lichtenberg, Georg C.
Any hope that America would finally grow up vanished with the rise of fundamentalist Christianity. Fundamentalism, with its born-again regression, its pink-and-gold concept of heaven, its literal-mindedness, its rambunctious good cheer... its anti-intellectualism... its puerile hymns... and its faith-healing... are made to order for King Kid America.
Christianity is the highest perfection of humanity.
Two great European narcotics, alcohol and Christianity.
Most of us spend the first six days of each week sowing wild oats; then we go to church on Sunday and pray for a crop failure.
Allen, Fred A.
White people really deal more with God and black people with Jesus.
How natural that the errors of the ancient should be handed down and, mixing with the principles and system which Christ taught, give to us an adulterated Christianity.
Faith makes a Christian. Life proves a Christian. Trial confirms a Christian. Death crowns a Christian.
The trouble with some of us is that we have been inoculated with small doses of Christianity which keep us from catching the real thing.
I have a great mind to believe in Christianity for the mere pleasure of fancying I may be damned.
Real Christianity is lovely. There is a quality about a Spirit-filled, radiant Christian that draws and attracts others and causes them to enjoy favor with all the people. The truth is that the gospel is not nearly as offensive as some of its proponents!
Hawkins, O. S.
Never think that Jesus commanded a trifle, nor dare to trifle with anything He has commanded.
Moody, Dwight L.
Christianity will go. It will vanish and shrink. I needn't argue with that; I'm right and I will be proved right. We're more popular than Jesus now; I don't know which will go first -- rock and roll or Christianity.
Bear the Cross cheerfully and it will bear you.
A Christian is a man who feels repentance on Sunday for what he did on Saturday and is going to do on Monday.
Regardless of the day or the hour; whether in seeming good times or bad, the Christian lives in the world for the good of the world and for the sake of the world.
The test of Christian character should be that a man is a joy-bearing agent to the world.
Beecher, Henry Ward
With two thousand years of Christianity behind him... a man can't see a regiment of soldiers march past without going off the deep end. It starts off far too many ideas in his head.
I am not a Catholic; but I consider the Christian idea, which has its roots in Greek thought and in the course of the centuries has nourished all of our European civilization, as something that one cannot renounce without becoming degraded.
The real security of Christianity is to be found in its benevolent morality, in its exquisite adaptation to the human heart, in the facility with which its scheme accommodates itself to the capacity of every human intellect, in the consolation which it bears to the house of mourning, in the light with which it brightens the great mystery of the grave.
Macaulay, Thomas B.
