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
The test of Christian character should be that a man is a joy-bearing agent to the world.
Beecher, Henry Ward
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
He spends his life explaining from his pulpit that the glory of Christianity consists in the fact that though it is not true it has been found necessary to invent it.
Munro, Hector Hugh
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.
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.
People in general are equally horrified at hearing the Christian religion doubted, and at seeing it practiced.
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.
Christianity is either relevant all the time or useless anytime. It is not just a phase of life; it is life itself.
The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.
Christian life consists of faith and charity.
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
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 have had more trouble with myself than with any other man.
Moody, Dwight L.
Bear the Cross cheerfully and it will bear you.
The fear of hell, or aiming to be blest, savors too much of private interest.
One ABC of Christianity: Always Be Cheerful [1 Thessalonians 5:16]
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.
A good example is far better than a good precept.
Moody, Dwight L.
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.
Christianity makes suffering contagious.
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 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.
Scratch the Christian and you find the pagan -- spoiled.
A Christian is a man who feels repentance on Sunday for what he did on Saturday and is going to do on Monday.
Christianity is completed Judaism or it is nothing.
A real Christian is a person who can give his pet parrot to the town gossip.
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.
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
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.
Don't feel superior just because you go to church, it doesn't make you a Christian.
Two great European narcotics, alcohol and Christianity.
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.
Never think that Jesus commanded a trifle, nor dare to trifle with anything He has commanded.
Moody, Dwight L.
To be like Christ is to be a Christian.
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.
What if men take to following where He leads, weary of mumbling Athanasian creeds?
I have a great mind to believe in Christianity for the mere pleasure of fancying I may be damned.
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.
Christianity is a battle not a dream.
The Christian religion, though scattered and abroad will in the end gather itself together at the foot of the cross.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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.
