Christians and christianity

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.
- Phillips, James
Christians and christianity Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Christians and christianity

1.
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.
Arnold, Matthew

2.
Bear the Cross cheerfully and it will bear you.
Kempis, Thomas

3.
Christianity makes suffering contagious.
Nietzsche, Friedrich

4.
I have had more trouble with myself than with any other man.
Moody, Dwight L.

5.
Christianity provides a unified answer for the whole of life.
Schaeffer, Francis

6.
To be like Christ is to be a Christian.
Penn, William

7.
The test of Christian character should be that a man is a joy-bearing agent to the world.
Beecher, Henry Ward

8.
A good example is far better than a good precept.
Moody, Dwight L.

9.
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.

10.
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

11.
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.
Nietzsche, Friedrich

12.
Christianity is a battle not a dream.
Phillips, Wendell

13.
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

14.
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.

15.
The glory of Christianity is to conquer by forgiveness.
Blake, William

16.
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.
Weatherhead, Leslie

17.
Never think that Jesus commanded a trifle, nor dare to trifle with anything He has commanded.
Moody, Dwight L.

18.
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.
Lennon, John

19.
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.

20.
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

21.
Christianity is the highest perfection of humanity.
Johnson, Samuel

22.
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.
Henry, Patrick

23.
Christians are rare people on earth.
Luther, Martin

24.
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.

25.
Christian life consists of faith and charity.
Luther, Martin

26.
Christianity is either relevant all the time or useless anytime. It is not just a phase of life; it is life itself.
Halverson, Richard

27.
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.

28.
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.
Updike, John

29.
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.
Faulkner, William

30.
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.

31.
Christianity, above all, has given a clear-cut answer to the demands of the human soul.

32.
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.
Weil, Simone

33.
A Christian is a man who feels repentance on Sunday for what he did on Saturday and is going to do on Monday.
Ybarra, Thomas

34.
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.
Baldwin, James

35.
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.
Phillips, James

36.
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.
Lindsell, Harold

37.
People in general are equally horrified at hearing the Christian religion doubted, and at seeing it practiced.
Butler, Samuel

38.
Christianity is art and not money. Money is its curse.
Blake, William

39.
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.
Pilgrim, Peace

40.
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.
Brown, Olympia

41.
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.

42.
Faith makes a Christian. Life proves a Christian. Trial confirms a Christian. Death crowns a Christian.

43.
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.
Walk, Don

44.
The fear of hell, or aiming to be blest, savors too much of private interest.
Waller, Edmund

45.
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

46.
The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.

47.
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.

48.
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.
Butler, Samuel

49.
Do you wish to find out the really sublime? Repeat the Lord's Prayer.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

50.
A real Christian is a person who can give his pet parrot to the town gossip.
Graham, Billy
