Religion Do you love a good quote? Are you a Christian? Yes? Yes? Then I guarantee you will love the Top Twenty Quotes on God and Christianity! Okay, I admit, I did sneak in one of my own. See if you can find it. Please note: These quotations are listed apathetically by author, not in any perceived order of importance. "Christ is not valued at all unless He is valued above all." Saint Augustine (354-430) Christian church father, philosopher, bishop "Who among us is willing to die to perpetuate a hoax? A logical assumption is that the martyrs: Stephen, James, Peter, and Paul died firmly convinced they were telling us the truth about Jesus and his resurrection. A blind faith? No, a reasoned faith. For Christianity was established by credible eyewitnesses willing to die for their testimony." Jerry Boone (1947- ) American author "God bears with the wicked, but not forever." Miguel de Cervantes (1547-1616) Spanish Writer "The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting; it has been found difficult and left untried." G. K. Chesterton (1874-1936) English author "Nature is but a name for an effect, whose cause is God." William Cowper (1731-1800) English poet "How many observe Christ’s birthday! How few, his precepts! O! ’tis easier to keep holidays than commandments." Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) American inventor, publisher, statesman "Toward what should we aim if not toward God?" Andre Gide (1869-1951) French writer "Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the one who can destroy both the soul and the body in hell." (Matthew 10:28) Jesus Christ (c. 6 B.C.- c. A.D. 30) The Messiah, the Son of God "A man with God is always in the majority." John Knox (1505-1572) Scottish religious reformer, founder of Scottish Presbyterianism "Now I define Faith as the power of continuing to believe what we once honestly thought to be true until cogent reasons for honestly changing our minds are brought before us." Christian Reflections (1941) C. S. [Clive Staples] Lewis English author and Christian Apologist "One of the great difficulties is to keep before the audience’s mind the question of Truth. They always think you are recommending Christianity not because it is ‘true’ but because it is ‘good’. One must keep on pointing out that Christianity is a statement which, if false, is of no importance, and if it is true, of infinite importance. The one thing it cannot be is moderately important." God in the Dock (1946) C.S. Lewis (1898-1963) "Here is a door, behind which, according to some people, the secret of the universe is hiding. Either that is true, or it isn’t. And if it isn’t, then what that door really conceals is simply the greatest fraud, the most colossal ‘sell’ on record. Isn’t it obviously the job of every man (that is a man and not a rabbit) to try to find out which, and then devote his full energies to serving this tremendous secret or to exposing and destroying this giant humbug?" God in the Dock (1946) C.S. Lewis "A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic — on the level with the man who says he is a poached egg — or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You can shut him up for a fool; you can spit at him and kill him as a demon; or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God. But let us not come up with any patronizing nonsense about his being a great teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to." Mere Christianity C.S. Lewis "We may not be able to get certainty, but we can get probability, and half a loaf is better than no bread." Christian Reflections C. S. Lewis "The central Christian belief is that Christ’s death has somehow put us right with God and given us a fresh start." Mere Christianity C.S. Lewis "The perfect church service would be the one we were almost unaware of; our attention would have been on God. But every novelty prevents this. It fixes our attention on the service itself; and thinking about worship is a different thing than worshiping … ‘Tis mad idolatry that makes the service greater than the god." C.S. Lewis "Christians believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God because he said so. The other evidence about him has convinced them he was neither a lunatic nor a quack." Christian Reflections C.S. Lewis "When you try to explain the Christian doctrine as it is really held by an instructed adult, they will complain that you are making their heads turn round and that it is all too complicated and that if there really were a God they are sure that He would have made ‘religion’ simple, . . . as if ‘religion’ were something God invented, and not His statement to us of certain quite unalterable facts about His own nature. Besides being complicated, reality, in my experience, is usually odd. It is not neat, not obvious, not what you expect . . . . Reality, in fact, is usually something you could not have guessed. That is one of the reasons I believe in Christianity." Mere Christianity C.S. Lewis "It is my deepest conviction that New Testament Christianity — I mean undenominationalized Christianity — what you read in your New Testament — unpolluted with centuries of human tradition, and untainted with the newest novelties and fads, is the best thing that ever happened to the human race, and that’s our message." Mack Lyon American Evangelist "The heart of Christianity is that Christ died for our sins, was buried, and was raised from death the third day according to the Scriptures." Mack Lyon "Christianity is a demanding and serious religion. When it is delivered as easy and amusing, it’s another kind of religion altogether. It’s almost become a truism in preaching — avoid doctrine, but by all means be amusing and entertaining — and make it short. It’s a mistake to substitute show for substance in the pulpit or on TV." Mack Lyon "Christianity, the kind of teaching and faith and worship and service that you read about in your own New Testament, isn’t a hype religion that keeps you pumped up by the momentary excitement of frequent hand-clapping, foot stomping, hallelujah pep rallies. But it will sustain you in sickness and suffering and recessions and reversals, and at the grave side of a loved one. It gives stability and meaning to your life. It’s the presence of God." Mack Lyon "When I was young, I was sure of many things; now there are only two things of which I am sure: one is, that I am a miserable sinner; and the other, that Christ is an all-sufficient Savior. He is well-taught who learns these two lessons." John Newton (1725 -1807) Sailor, English Clergyman and Songwriter, best known for the hymn, "Amazing Grace" "Jesus Christ our Lord was declared with power to be the Son of God by his resurrection from the dead." Romans 1:4) Apostle Paul "Without God, there is no virtue, because there’s no prompting of the conscience. Without God, we’re mired in the material, that flat world that tells us only what the senses perceive. Without God, there is a coarsening of the society. And without God, democracy will not and cannot long endure. If we ever forget that we’re one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under. If I could just make a personal statement of my own — in these 3 1/2 years I have understood and known better than ever before the words of Lincoln, when he said that he would be the greatest fool on this footstool called Earth if he ever thought that for one moment he could perform the duties of that office without help from One who is stronger than all." Ronald Wilson Reagan (1911-2004) August 23, 1984, address at an ecumenical prayer breakfast, Reunion Arena, Dallas, Texas If I haven’t listed your favorite God and Christianity quote, email it to me and I’ll consider it for a future article. No negative quotes, please! I believe you eventually become whatever you allow your mind to think about. If you will allow me one more "self quote": "Whatever is constantly on your mind is what you become. To put it another way, you are what you think. Want to become a saint? Then read, study, and take to heart — the New Testament. Want to become a moral degenerate? Then read, study, and take to heart — pornography. We can’t help it. That’s the way we are made. Whoever we associate with, whatever we read, whatever we watch on television, whatever we allow our minds to dwell on, becomes, in time, our character and our destiny." About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
