Best Quotes about Christians and christianity
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.
I have now disposed of all my property to my family. There is one thing more I wish I could give them, and that is the Christian religion.
Scratch the Christian and you find the pagan -- spoiled.
What if men take to following where He leads, weary of mumbling Athanasian creeds?
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.
Do you wish to find out the really sublime? Repeat the Lord's Prayer.
Christianity is art and not money. Money is its curse.
Never think that Jesus commanded a trifle, nor dare to trifle with anything He has commanded.
Moody, Dwight L.
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.
If there is any moral in Christianity, if there is anything to be learned from it, if the whole story is not profitless from first to last, it comes to this: that a man should back his own opinion against the world s.
What the world requires of the Christians is that they should continue to be Christians.
Christianity is either relevant all the time or useless anytime. It is not just a phase of life; it is life itself.
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.
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.
Is your Christianity ancient history--or current events?
Shoemaker, Samuel M.
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 glory of Christianity is to conquer by forgiveness.
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.
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.
Christianity provides a unified answer for the whole of life.
A Christian is a man who feels repentance on Sunday for what he did on Saturday and is going to do on Monday.
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
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.
A real Christian is a person who can give his pet parrot to the town gossip.
The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.
Here I swear, and as I break my oath may eternity blast me, here I swear that never will I forgive Christianity! It is the only point on which I allow myself to encourage revenge. Oh, how I wish I were the Antichrist, that it were mine to crush the Demon; to hurl him to his native Hell never to rise again -- I expect to gratify some of this insatiable feeling in Poetry.
Shelley, Percy Bysshe
To be like Christ is to be a Christian.
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 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.
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.
Faith makes a Christian. Life proves a Christian. Trial confirms a Christian. Death crowns a Christian.
A good example is far better than a good precept.
Moody, Dwight L.
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.
If Christians would really live according to the teachings of Christ, as found in the Bible, all of India would be Christian today.
I have had more trouble with myself than with any other man.
Moody, Dwight L.
Don't feel superior just because you go to church, it doesn't make you a Christian.
The Christianity which is shared is the Christianity which is convincing.
Hough, Lynn Harold
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.
Our brains are no longer conditioned for reverence and awe. We cannot imagine a Second Coming that would not be cut down to size by the televised evening news, or a Last Judgment not subject to pages of holier-than-thou second-guessing in The New York Review of Books.
Christianity makes suffering contagious.
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.
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.
No egoism is so insufferable as that of the Christian with regard to his soul.
Maugham, W. Somerset
Christianity is a battle not a dream.
God doesn't have any grandchildren.
Jones, Eli Stanley
The early Christian rules of life were not made to last, because the early Christians did not believe that the world itself was going to last.
Shaw, George Bernard
Christianity is completed Judaism or it is nothing.
White people really deal more with God and black people with Jesus.
Christianity is the root of all democracy, the highest fact in the rights of men.
I believe in Christianity as I believe in the rising sun; not because I see it, but by it I can see all else.
Lewis, C. S.
