I feel that segregation is totally unchristian, and that it is against everything the Christian religion stands for.
Our special task, as French Canadians, is to insert into America the spirit of Christian France.Henri Bourassa
Though sin may be in the Christian, yet it hath no more dominion over him; he hath an unfeigned respect to all God's commandments, making conscience even of little sins and little duties.joseph alleine
Great God, and you witnesses of my death, I have lived as a philosopher, and I die as a Christian.giacomo casanova
When we read or hear how some professed Christian has turned defaulter, or lapsed into drunkenness, or slipped from the communion table into open disgrace, it simply means than a human arm has broken. The man has forsaken the everlasting arms.theodore l. cuyler
Higgins: Is [assassination] only justified if the target is a reactionary, anti-democratic, anti-human rights obscurantist like bin Laden?Enda Kenny: I know you are a good Christian man who has your job to do in here from a political point of view. Many of his victims in the twin towers in New York were of Irish descent or directly Irish.joe higgins
If Christianity has really come from heaven, it must renew the whole life of man; it must govern the life of nations no less than that of individuals; it must control a Christian when acting in his public and political capacity as completely as when he is engaged in the duties which belong to him as a member of a family circle.henry parry liddon
The study of theology as it stands in Christian churches, is the study of nothing; it is founded on nothing; it rests on no principles; it proceeds by no authorities; it has no data; it can demonstrate nothing; and admits of no conclusion. Not any thing can be studied as a science without our being in possession of the principles upon which it is founded; and as this is not the case with Christian theology, it is therefore the study of nothing.thomas paine
I think I speak not too strongly when I say that a church in the land without the Spirit of God is rather a curse than a blessing. If you have not the Spirit of God, Christian worker, remember you stand in somebody else's way; you are a tree bearing no fruit, standing where another fruitful tree might grow.charles haddon spurgeon
The manliness of Christian love, and the putting away from ourselves of all fear, because we are " perfected in love," is one of the highest lessons that the gospel teaches us, and one of the greatest things which the gospel gives us.
“Ah, go to hell!” “That’s a remarkably Christian attitude, Donald. Both meaningless and barbaric.”john brunner
It's strange. In the last five minutes you have used my Christian name over and over again and never before. People I like learn my name too late.Peter Greenaway
That religion, or the duty which we owe to our Creator, and the manner of discharging it, can be directed only by reason and conviction, not by force or violence; and therefore all men are equally entitled to the free exercise of religion, according to the dictates of conscience; and that it is the mutual duty of all to practice Christian forbearance, love, and charity towards each other.george mason
If you talk to a thoughtful Christian, Catholic or Anglican, you often ?nd yourself laughed at for being so ignorant as to suppose that anyone ever took the doctrines of the Church literally. [Man] is not likely to salvage civilization unless he can evolve a system of good and evil which is independent of heaven and hell.george orwell
“Are you yourself a Christian?” The young man made a negative sign. “The concepts of religion baffle me.” “This inscrutability is perhaps not unintentional,” said the ex-priest. “It gives endless employment to dialecticians who otherwise might become public charges or, at very worst, swindlers and tricksters.”jack vance
It belongs to our Christian faith and not to his stoical virtue, to pretend to this divine and miraculous metamorphosis.
A Christian is never justified in following a course of action that is utterly opposed to the principles of the Kingdom, not even to serve the temporal well being of family or nation.
It is known that Judaic, Christian, and Islamic worshippers announce “amen” at the end of a prayer , supplication , expression of thanks and praise , and even sing “Amen, Amen, Amen”. Yet few of these worshippers know that Amen was the greatest Egyptian God for over two thousand years before the birth of Jesus . Perhaps we should not fault religious leaders for their ignorance about the past because the hieroglyphic code was broken less than two hundred years ago, and Egyptologists have deciphered what was written on Egyptian tombs and temples only since the early 1900s.
As preachers we are to promote Christian culture, by bringing the dead branches to the living Vine, that, grafted into it, without a rag of hum1.n righteousness between, the life of Him may enter them; and by keeping them, as far as teaching and example can do it, abiding in Him, that they may bring forth fruit.
The more pity that great folk should have countenance in this world to drown or hang themselves, more than their even Christian.william shakespeare
It's very sad how in the information age you cannot get information into people's heads as long as you write something on the internet and do not add LOL it is true :;: "I'm not sure he's a Christian." I'm not sure he's a mammal , Jay. He could be a werewolf .
It is true that 'religious naturalism', or the acknowledgment of the Divine in Nature, is also an element of the Christian religion….but it is by no means the characteristic, the tendency of the Christian religion.
'The Christian Sabbath' is not in the Scripture, and was not by the primitive church called the Sabbath.
There is nothing that will make you a Christian indeed, but a taste of the sweetness of Christ.
In my present insistence on high standards you will see that there is less self-indulgence than resolve and application. I do not let the Christian monopolize the ideal of perfection .
Deeper understanding of the matter is bound to recognize that the Temple, as well as the synagogue, entered into Christian liturgy.
This bond doth give thee here no jot of blood; The words expressly are, a pound of flesh. Take then thy bond, take thou thy pound of flesh; But, in the cutting it, if thou dost shed One drop of Christian blood, thy lands and goods Are by the laws of Venice confiscate Unto the state of Venice.
The very word 'Christianity' is a misunderstanding in truth, there was only one Christian, and he died on the cross.friedrich nietzsche
All Christian powers that are still neutral would be impelled to rise up against Turkey and cry anathema against her |inhuman Government and her ferocious 'Committee of Union and Progress,' and they would extend the responsibility to Turkey's Allies .
