Christians and christianity

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
Christians and christianity Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Christians and christianity

1.
The Christian religion, though scattered and abroad will in the end gather itself together at the foot of the cross.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

2.
Is your Christianity ancient history--or current events?
Shoemaker, Samuel M.

3.
The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.

4.
Christianity is the highest perfection of humanity.
Johnson, Samuel

5.
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.

6.
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.

7.
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

8.
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

9.
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.

10.
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

11.
Two great European narcotics, alcohol and Christianity.
Nietzsche, Friedrich

12.
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

13.
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

14.
Christianity, above all, has given a clear-cut answer to the demands of the human soul.

15.
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.
Phillips, James

16.
Do you wish to find out the really sublime? Repeat the Lord's Prayer.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

17.
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.

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

20.
Christians are rare people on earth.
Luther, Martin

21.
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

22.
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.
Lennon, John

23.
A real Christian is a person who can give his pet parrot to the town gossip.
Graham, Billy

24.
One ABC of Christianity: Always Be Cheerful [1 Thessalonians 5:16]

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

26.
Don't feel superior just because you go to church, it doesn't make you a Christian.

27.
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

28.
Christianity is either relevant all the time or useless anytime. It is not just a phase of life; it is life itself.
Halverson, Richard

29.
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

30.
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

31.
The test of Christian character should be that a man is a joy-bearing agent to the world.
Beecher, Henry Ward

32.
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.

33.
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.
Butler, Samuel

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

35.
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

36.
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

37.
No egoism is so insufferable as that of the Christian with regard to his soul.
Maugham, W. Somerset

38.
The Christianity which is shared is the Christianity which is convincing.
Hough, Lynn Harold

39.
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.

40.
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.
Celine, Louis-Ferdinand

41.
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

42.
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.
Lindsell, Harold

43.
The glory of Christianity is to conquer by forgiveness.
Blake, William

44.
Christianity is art and not money. Money is its curse.
Blake, William

45.
What the world requires of the Christians is that they should continue to be Christians.
Camus, Albert

46.
Christian life consists of faith and charity.
Luther, Martin

47.
The fear of hell, or aiming to be blest, savors too much of private interest.
Waller, Edmund

48.
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

49.
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

50.
Never think that Jesus commanded a trifle, nor dare to trifle with anything He has commanded.
Moody, Dwight L.
