Best Quotes about Christians and christianity
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.
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.
One ABC of Christianity: Always Be Cheerful [1 Thessalonians 5:16]
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
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 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
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
Christianity is either relevant all the time or useless anytime. It is not just a phase of life; it is life itself.
A real Christian is a person who can give his pet parrot to the town gossip.
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.
A good example is far better than a good precept.
Moody, Dwight L.
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 makes suffering contagious.
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.
Christianity, above all, has given a clear-cut answer to the demands of the human soul.
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.
Christians are rare people on earth.
The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.
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.
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.
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 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.
Faith makes a Christian. Life proves a Christian. Trial confirms a Christian. Death crowns a Christian.
What the world requires of the Christians is that they should continue to be Christians.
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
Is your Christianity ancient history--or current events?
Shoemaker, Samuel M.
The test of Christian character should be that a man is a joy-bearing agent to the world.
Beecher, Henry Ward
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.
What if men take to following where He leads, weary of mumbling Athanasian creeds?
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.
The Christian religion, though scattered and abroad will in the end gather itself together at the foot of the cross.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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.
Christianity is the root of all democracy, the highest fact in the rights of men.
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.
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.
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.
Christianity is the highest perfection of humanity.
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 fear of hell, or aiming to be blest, savors too much of private interest.
A Christian is a man who feels repentance on Sunday for what he did on Saturday and is going to do on Monday.
Bear the Cross cheerfully and it will bear you.
I have had more trouble with myself than with any other man.
Moody, Dwight L.
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.
Two great European narcotics, alcohol and Christianity.
Scratch the Christian and you find the pagan -- spoiled.
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
No egoism is so insufferable as that of the Christian with regard to his soul.
Maugham, W. Somerset
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.
If Christians would really live according to the teachings of Christ, as found in the Bible, all of India would be Christian today.
