Best Quotes about Christians and christianity
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 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
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.
Bear the Cross cheerfully and it will bear you.
I have a great mind to believe in Christianity for the mere pleasure of fancying I may be damned.
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.
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 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
Don't feel superior just because you go to church, it doesn't make you a Christian.
A good example is far better than a good precept.
Moody, Dwight L.
The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.
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.
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
White people really deal more with God and black people with Jesus.
The Christian religion, though scattered and abroad will in the end gather itself together at the foot of the cross.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
I have had more trouble with myself than with any other man.
Moody, Dwight L.
If Christians would really live according to the teachings of Christ, as found in the Bible, all of India would be Christian today.
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.
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.
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.
The test of Christian character should be that a man is a joy-bearing agent to the world.
Beecher, Henry Ward
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.
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.
Christianity is a battle not a dream.
A real Christian is a person who can give his pet parrot to the town gossip.
What if men take to following where He leads, weary of mumbling Athanasian creeds?
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
No egoism is so insufferable as that of the Christian with regard to his soul.
Maugham, W. Somerset
Christianity makes suffering contagious.
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.
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.
To be like Christ is to be a Christian.
Never think that Jesus commanded a trifle, nor dare to trifle with anything He has commanded.
Moody, Dwight L.
Christianity provides a unified answer for the whole of life.
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.
Scratch the Christian and you find the pagan -- spoiled.
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.
One ABC of Christianity: Always Be Cheerful [1 Thessalonians 5:16]
Christianity is art and not money. Money is its curse.
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.
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.
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.
Christians are rare people on earth.
God doesn't have any grandchildren.
Jones, Eli Stanley
Do you wish to find out the really sublime? Repeat the Lord's Prayer.
The fear of hell, or aiming to be blest, savors too much of private interest.
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.
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
Christianity, above all, has given a clear-cut answer to the demands of the human soul.
