Christians and christianity

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
Christians and christianity Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Christians and christianity

1.
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

2.
What if men take to following where He leads, weary of mumbling Athanasian creeds?
Noel, Roden

3.
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

4.
Christianity is the root of all democracy, the highest fact in the rights of men.
Novalis

5.
Christianity is either relevant all the time or useless anytime. It is not just a phase of life; it is life itself.
Halverson, Richard

6.
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.
Kipling, Rudyard

7.
Christians are rare people on earth.
Luther, Martin

8.
Is your Christianity ancient history--or current events?
Shoemaker, Samuel M.

9.
If Christians would really live according to the teachings of Christ, as found in the Bible, all of India would be Christian today.
Gandhi, Mahatma

10.
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.

11.
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

12.
Christian life consists of faith and charity.
Luther, Martin

13.
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.

14.
No egoism is so insufferable as that of the Christian with regard to his soul.
Maugham, W. Somerset

15.
To be like Christ is to be a Christian.
Penn, William

16.
What the world requires of the Christians is that they should continue to be Christians.
Camus, Albert

17.
The test of Christian character should be that a man is a joy-bearing agent to the world.
Beecher, Henry Ward

18.
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

19.
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

20.
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.

21.
A good example is far better than a good precept.
Moody, Dwight L.

22.
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

23.
Christianity provides a unified answer for the whole of life.
Schaeffer, Francis

24.
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

25.
God doesn't have any grandchildren.
Jones, Eli Stanley

26.
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.

27.
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

28.
Christianity is completed Judaism or it is nothing.
Disraeli, Benjamin

29.
The fear of hell, or aiming to be blest, savors too much of private interest.
Waller, Edmund

30.
The Christian religion, though scattered and abroad will in the end gather itself together at the foot of the cross.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

31.
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

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.
Don't feel superior just because you go to church, it doesn't make you a Christian.

34.
Faith makes a Christian. Life proves a Christian. Trial confirms a Christian. Death crowns a Christian.

35.
The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.

36.
I have a great mind to believe in Christianity for the mere pleasure of fancying I may be damned.
Byron, Lord

37.
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

38.
Do you wish to find out the really sublime? Repeat the Lord's Prayer.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

39.
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

40.
The Christianity which is shared is the Christianity which is convincing.
Hough, Lynn Harold

41.
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

42.
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.

43.
Christianity is the highest perfection of humanity.
Johnson, Samuel

44.
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

45.
Two great European narcotics, alcohol and Christianity.
Nietzsche, Friedrich

46.
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.
King, Florence

47.
Christianity is a battle not a dream.
Phillips, Wendell

48.
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.
Graham, Billy

49.
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.

50.
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
