It isn't right to be obedient only when things go well; it is much harder to be a good, obedient soldier when things go badly and times are hard. Obedience and faith at such time is a virtue.wilhelm keitel
God seeks comrades and claims love , The devil seeks slaves and claims Obedience .rabindranath tagore
Religion, in its purity, is not so much a pursuit as a temper; or rather it is a temper, leading to the pursuit of all that is high and holy. Its foundation is faith; its action, works; its temper, holiness; its aim, Obedience to God in improvement of self, and benevolence to men.jonathan edwards
Nearness to GOD calls for tenderness of conscience, thoughtfulness in service, and implicit Obedience.james hudson taylor
Rebellion to tyrants is Obedience to God.Benjamin Franklin
Flaubert and Nietzsche have emphasized the importance of standing up and walking in the process of thinking. The peripatetics were perhaps motivated by the same awareness. Yet purposeful walking what we call marching is an enemy of thought and is used as a powerful instrument for the suppression of independent thought and the inculcation of unquestioned Obedience.Eric Hoffer
During the era of Assad junior… Damascus-Tehran relations have changed from alliance to blind Obedience... The Iranians have found their way into Syria, which is obvious from the size of Iran 's diplomatic mission in Damascus, numbering hundreds of officials!
God seeks comrades and claims love. The devil seeks slaves and claims Obedience.rabindranath tagore
Obedience simulates subordination as fear of the police simulates honesty .George Bernard Shaw
Obedience is not servility. On the contrary the servile are never rightly obedient.john lancaster spalding
We ourselves esteem not of that Obedience, or love, or gift, which is of force: God therefore let him free, set before him a provoking object, ever almost in his eyes; herein consisted his merit, herein the right of his reward, the praise of his abstinence.john milton
Christianity is really a man's religion: there's not much in it for women except docility, Obedience, who-sweeps- the-room-as-for-thy-cause, downcast eyes and death in childbirth. For the men it's better: all power and money and fine robes, the burning of the hereticsfun, fun, fun!and the Inquisition fulminating from the pulpit.Fay originally Franklin Birkinshaw Weldon
Whatever in Christ had the nature of satisfaction, was by virtue of His suffering or humiliation; whatever had the nature of merit, was by virtue of His Obedience or righteousness.jonathan edwards
Christ wrought out His perfect Obedience as a man, through temptation, and by suffering.alexander maclaren
It is with Obedience to your call that I take up the burden of government leadership for the final time.ratu sir kamisese mara
Having still in my recollection so many excellent men, to whose grandfathers, upon the same spots, my grandfather had yielded cheerful Obedience and reverence, it is not without sincere sorrow that I have beheld many of the sons of these men driven from their fathers' mansions, or holding them as little better than tenants or stewards, while the swarms of Placemen, Pensioners, Contractors, and Nabobs...have usurped a large part of the soil.william cobbett
The heroes in paganism correspond exactly to the saints in popery, and holy dervises in MAHOMETANISM. The place of, HERCULES, THESEUS, HECTOR, ROMULUS, is now supplied by DOMINIC, FRANCIS, ANTHONY, and BENEDICT. Instead of the destruction of monsters, the subduing of tyrants, the defence of our native country; whippings and fastings, cowardice and humility, abject submission and slavish Obedience, are become the means of obtaining celestial honours among mankind.David Hume
Nature rejects the monarch, not the man; The subject, not the citizen; for kings And subjects, mutual foes, forever play A losing game into each other's hands, Whose stakes are vice and misery. The man Of virtuous soul commands not, nor obeys. Power, like a desolating pestilence, Pollutes whate'er it touches; and Obedience, Bane of all genius, virtue, freedom, truth, Makes slaves of men, and of the human frame A mechanized automaton.Percy Bysshe Shelley
If you have nothing of the spirit of prayer, nothing of the love of the brotherhood, nothing of mortifying the spirit of the world, nothing of growth in grace, of cordial, habitual, persevering Obedience to the Divine commands, how can it be that you have been brought nigh by the blood of Christ?gardiner spring
If a law commands me to sin I will break it; if it calls me to suffer , I will let it take its course unresistingly . The doctrine of blind Obedience and unqualified submission to any human power, whether civil or ecclesiastical, is the doctrine of despotism, and ought to have no place among Republicans and Christians.
In the course which the case is now about to take my opinion becomes worthless. I am bound to assume that I am wrong in point of law. Your lordships' judgment settles the law finally, and in yielding a willing Obedience I have, at least, the palliation for mistake in law that I have erred in company with the Lord President, the Lord Justice Clerk, and four other able and eminent Scotch Judges.
Paul says that all humans are condemned under the law, and justifiably so. This is why salvation is through spiritual rebirth in love for Christ and not through Obedience to the Judaic laws. (Rom. 3:28)
