Best Quotes about Christians and christianity
Christian means coming from Christ. Just as a Californian comes from California and a Bostonian is someone who comes from Boston, A Christian is one who comes from Christ.
No egoism is so insufferable as that of the Christian with regard to his soul.
Maugham, W. Somerset
What the world requires of the Christians is that they should continue to be Christians.
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
I have had more trouble with myself than with any other man.
Moody, Dwight L.
I have a great mind to believe in Christianity for the mere pleasure of fancying I may be damned.
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.
People in general are equally horrified at hearing the Christian religion doubted, and at seeing it practiced.
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.
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.
It is only when all our Christian ancestors are allowed to become our contemporaries that the real splendor of the Christian faith and the Christian life begins to dawn upon us.
Hough, Lynn Harold
Do you wish to find out the really sublime? Repeat the Lord's Prayer.
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.
God doesn't have any grandchildren.
Jones, Eli Stanley
Christianity is either relevant all the time or useless anytime. It is not just a phase of life; it is life itself.
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.
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.
What if men take to following where He leads, weary of mumbling Athanasian creeds?
Faith makes a Christian. Life proves a Christian. Trial confirms a Christian. Death crowns a Christian.
Christianity is art and not money. Money is its curse.
Christianity makes suffering contagious.
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
The Christianity which is shared is the Christianity which is convincing.
Hough, Lynn Harold
Christianity is a battle not a dream.
White people really deal more with God and black people with Jesus.
Christian life consists of faith and charity.
The fear of hell, or aiming to be blest, savors too much of private interest.
The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.
Christians are rare people on earth.
The Christian religion, though scattered and abroad will in the end gather itself together at the foot of the cross.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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.
The glory of Christianity is to conquer by forgiveness.
One ABC of Christianity: Always Be Cheerful [1 Thessalonians 5:16]
To be like Christ is to be a Christian.
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.
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.
Is your Christianity ancient history--or current events?
Shoemaker, Samuel M.
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.
A Christian is a man who feels repentance on Sunday for what he did on Saturday and is going to do on Monday.
Two great European narcotics, alcohol and Christianity.
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.
Christianity, above all, has given a clear-cut answer to the demands of the human soul.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 Jesus Christ be God and died for me, then no sacrifice can be too great for me to make for Him.
Studd, C. T.
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.
