Christianity

«God may sometimes laugh at our plans. But if they are based on a Heavenly and eternal perspective, He will always support us. On His timetable, not ours.»

Paul Turk


«Giving every man a vote has no more made men wise and free than Christianity has made them good.»

H.L. Mencken


«He means to rename us--to return us to our true names, our truest selves. He means to heal our soul holes. From the very beginning, that Eden beginning, that has always been and always is, to this day, His secret purpose--our return to 'our full glory'.»

Ann Voskamp


«Obedience is the virtue that determines whether a person is either a servant or a rebel. Life of integrity is built on obedience of God's statutes and nothing else.»

Israelmore Ayivor


«Compared to the unleashed forces of warfare and of faith, Mount Vesuvius was kinder to the legacy of antiquity.»

Stephen Greenblatt


«As obvious as it is, then, Jesus is bigger than any one religion.»

Rob Bell


«I believe God has heard my prayers. He will make it manifest in His own good time that He has heard me. I have recorded my petitions that when God has answered them, His name will be glorified.»

George Müller


«There were two worlds, two lives, for each person: this one--brief, narrow, finite; and the hereafter-- eternal, limitless, infinite. Fame, to mean anything, should go with one into the next world, where one could enjoy it perpetually.»

Courtney Anderson


«Our unfathomable evolutionary past paints a picture vastly more immense than any spiritual story could ever create because it is raw and real, violent, dirty and beautiful—and because of that—it's spectacular!»

Christopher Loren


«How is it more for the glory of God to save man irresistibly, than to save him as a free agent, by such grace as he may either concur or resist?»

John Wesley


«Does anyone in this room have it?"»

Chris Crutcher


«When Catholicism goes bad it becomes the world-old, world-wide religio of amulets and holy places and priestcraft: Protestantism, in its corresponding decay, becomes a vague mist of ethical platitudes. Catholicism is accused of being much too like the other religions; Protestantism of being insufficiently like a religion at all. Hence Plato, with his transcendent Forms, is the doctor of Protestants; Aristotle, with his immanent Forms, the doctor of Catholics.»

C.S. Lewis


«Why are...poor people more ready to share their goods than rich people? The answer is easy: The poor have little to lose; the rich have more to lose and they are more attached to their possessions. Poverty provides a deeper motivation for understanding your neighbors, welcoming others and attending to those who are suffering. I would go so far as to say that poverty helps you understand what happiness is, what serenity is in life.»

Piero Gheddo


«One of the most important elements in the evolution of human institutions is the emergence of the difficult customer within the system itself, the radical who starts to question its very being, the reformer who calls for changes in the way it runs.»

Richard Holloway


«It is ignorance or at least lack of consideration of heavenly things that make the temporal things of this world, whether good or evil, greater than they really are.»

Tom Patton


«It is not opinions that man needs: it is TRUTH. It is not theology; it is God. It is not religion: it is Christ. It is not literature and science; but the knowledge of the free love of God in the gift of His only-begotten Son.»

Horatius Bonar


«It’s important that you keep asking God to show you what He wants you to do. If you don’t ask, you won’t know.»

Stormie Omartian


«Differ though we might with Christianity's view of what precisely our souls need, it is hard to discredit the provocative underlying thesis, which seems no less relevant in the secular realm than in the religious one--that we have within us a precious, childlike, vulnerable core which we should nourish and nurture on its turbulent journey through life.»

Alain de Botton


«Jesus is the seed of salvation and we are the fruit of redemption»

Ikechukwu Izuakor


«Hold material goods and wealth on a flat palm and not in a clenched fist.»

Alistair Begg


«Delighting in God’s Word leads us to delight in God, and delight in God drives away fear.»

David Jeremiah


«Noble disappointment, noble self-denial are not to be admired, not even to be pardoned, if they bring bitterness. It is one thing to enter the kingdom of heaven maim; another to maim yourself and stay without.»

Robert Louis Stevenson


«Even though people about us choose the path of hate and violence and warfare and greed and prejudice, we who are Christ's body must throw off these poisons and let love permeate and cleanse every tissue and cell. Nor are we to allow ourselves to become easily discouraged when love is not always obviously successful or pleasant. Love never quits, even when an enemy has hit you on the right cheek and you have turned the other, and he's also hit that.»

Clarence Jordan


«Separating one's “self” physically from the world (as an unseen entity) alienates the human being from the facts of a sensual world and its realities. In order to have a self, you must provide a story for that self. Whether it is the tale of past pain or future fears the etheric self requires a story because it is hitchhiking on the natural.»

Christopher Loren


«Maybe it's not about being worthy, or what you have to offer. If it was, wouldn't everyone be turned away?" -Niall»

Brittany L. Engels


«People’s love for us may change, depending on what we do or don’t do to please them. But God’s does not—it’s everlasting.»

Stormie Omartian


«Was it not part of the secret black art of truly»

Friedrich Nietzsche


«Hope is an act of faith. Great faith, great hope.»

Lailah Gifty Akita


«Suffering often draws us closer to God. Instead of being a sign of God's punishment or distance, suffering can purify us, lead us into the heart of God, and transform our souls.»

Allen R. Hunt


«Woe to him who doesn't know this Christian faith is bourgeois.»

Pier Paolo Pasolini
