Best Quotes about Christians and christianity
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.
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.
People in general are equally horrified at hearing the Christian religion doubted, and at seeing it practiced.
The glory of Christianity is to conquer by forgiveness.
God doesn't have any grandchildren.
Jones, Eli Stanley
If Christians would really live according to the teachings of Christ, as found in the Bible, all of India would be Christian today.
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
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
Bear the Cross cheerfully and it will bear you.
Christianity is the highest perfection of humanity.
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.
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
Scratch the Christian and you find the pagan -- spoiled.
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
One ABC of Christianity: Always Be Cheerful [1 Thessalonians 5:16]
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.
To be like Christ is to be a Christian.
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.
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
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.
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 provides a unified answer for the whole of life.
No egoism is so insufferable as that of the Christian with regard to his soul.
Maugham, W. Somerset
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.
I have a great mind to believe in Christianity for the mere pleasure of fancying I may be damned.
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, 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
Christians are rare people on earth.
Christianity, above all, has given a clear-cut answer to the demands of the human soul.
Christianity is the root of all democracy, the highest fact in the rights of men.
Christianity is a battle not a dream.
Don't feel superior just because you go to church, it doesn't make you a Christian.
Never think that Jesus commanded a trifle, nor dare to trifle with anything He has commanded.
Moody, Dwight L.
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
The Christian religion, though scattered and abroad will in the end gather itself together at the foot of the cross.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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.
The Christianity which is shared is the Christianity which is convincing.
Hough, Lynn Harold
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.
White people really deal more with God and black people with Jesus.
Christianity is completed Judaism or it is nothing.
A good example is far better than a good precept.
Moody, Dwight L.
Christianity is either relevant all the time or useless anytime. It is not just a phase of life; it is life itself.
A real Christian is a person who can give his pet parrot to the town gossip.
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.
Christianity makes suffering contagious.
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.
Two great European narcotics, alcohol and Christianity.
What the world requires of the Christians is that they should continue to be Christians.
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.
The test of Christian character should be that a man is a joy-bearing agent to the world.
Beecher, Henry Ward
