Best Quotes about Christians and christianity
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.
Christianity is the highest perfection of humanity.
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
White people really deal more with God and black people with Jesus.
Scratch the Christian and you find the pagan -- spoiled.
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 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
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
I have a great mind to believe in Christianity for the mere pleasure of fancying I may be damned.
Is your Christianity ancient history--or current events?
Shoemaker, Samuel M.
To be like Christ is to be a Christian.
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
Do you wish to find out the really sublime? Repeat the Lord's Prayer.
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.
What if men take to following where He leads, weary of mumbling Athanasian creeds?
Christianity makes suffering contagious.
A Christian is a man who feels repentance on Sunday for what he did on Saturday and is going to do on Monday.
Christianity provides a unified answer for the whole of life.
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
Christianity, above all, has given a clear-cut answer to the demands of the human soul.
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 is art and not money. Money is its curse.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Bear the Cross cheerfully and it will bear you.
A real Christian is a person who can give his pet parrot to the town gossip.
The Christianity which is shared is the Christianity which is convincing.
Hough, Lynn Harold
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.
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.
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.
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.
With two thousand years of Christianity behind him... a man can't see a regiment of soldiers march past without going off the deep end. It starts off far too many ideas in his head.
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.
Christian life consists of faith and charity.
What the world requires of the Christians is that they should continue to be Christians.
Faith makes a Christian. Life proves a Christian. Trial confirms a Christian. Death crowns a Christian.
Never think that Jesus commanded a trifle, nor dare to trifle with anything He has commanded.
Moody, Dwight L.
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.
The glory of Christianity is to conquer by forgiveness.
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.
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.
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 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.
The fear of hell, or aiming to be blest, savors too much of private interest.
The test of Christian character should be that a man is a joy-bearing agent to the world.
Beecher, Henry Ward
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.
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
