Best Quotes about Christians and christianity
Faith makes a Christian. Life proves a Christian. Trial confirms a Christian. Death crowns a Christian.
The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.
Christianity is art and not money. Money is its curse.
The fear of hell, or aiming to be blest, savors too much of private interest.
The Christianity which is shared is the Christianity which is convincing.
Hough, Lynn Harold
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
White people really deal more with God and black people with Jesus.
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.
Christianity is completed Judaism or it is nothing.
I have had more trouble with myself than with any other man.
Moody, Dwight L.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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 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 the highest perfection of humanity.
A Christian is a man who feels repentance on Sunday for what he did on Saturday and is going to do on Monday.
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.
Never think that Jesus commanded a trifle, nor dare to trifle with anything He has commanded.
Moody, Dwight L.
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
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.
Christianity provides a unified answer for the whole of life.
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.
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
People in general are equally horrified at hearing the Christian religion doubted, and at seeing it practiced.
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.
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
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 is a battle not a dream.
The test of Christian character should be that a man is a joy-bearing agent to the world.
Beecher, Henry Ward
A real Christian is a person who can give his pet parrot to the town gossip.
One ABC of Christianity: Always Be Cheerful [1 Thessalonians 5:16]
What if men take to following where He leads, weary of mumbling Athanasian creeds?
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.
Christianity makes suffering contagious.
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.
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.
If Christians would really live according to the teachings of Christ, as found in the Bible, all of India would be Christian today.
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.
To be like Christ is to be a Christian.
A good example is far better than a good precept.
Moody, Dwight L.
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.
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.
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.
Scratch the Christian and you find the pagan -- spoiled.
Do you wish to find out the really sublime? Repeat the Lord's Prayer.
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
