Christianity Quotes

Christianity is not so much the advent of a better doctrine as of a perfect character.

Horace Bushnell

There is sort of Christians Christianity of whose had died out long ago, they have just not noticed that. Thus, they let all things stay as they are.

Wilhelm Busch

A life devoted to trifles, not only takes away the inclination, but the capacity for higher pursuits. The truths of Christianity have scarcely more influence on a frivolous than on a profligate character.

Hannah More

The sending forth of authorized persons beyond the borders of the New Testament church and her immediate gospel influence to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ in gospel-destitute areas, to win converts from other faiths or non-faiths to Jesus Christ, and to establish functioning, multiplying local congregations who will bear the fruit of Christianity in that community and to that country.

Dr. George Peters

Today we must secure not a clash between civilizations, but a reconciliation and bringing together of the values of Islam and Christianity.

Bishop Sebouh Chouldjian

About the scientific revolution: it outshines everything since the rise of Christianity and reduces the Renaissance and Reformation to the rank of mere episodes.

Herbert Butterfield

Democracy, as has been said of Christianity, has never really been tried.

Stuart Chase

Christianity and Islamism have been on their trial for the last eighteen and twelve centuries. They have been ardent in proselytizing, yet they embrace only one-tenth and one-twentieth of the human race. Hj Abd would account for the tardy and unsatisfactory progress of what their votaries call "pure truths," by the innate imperfections of the same. Both propose a reward for mere belief, and a penalty for simple unbelief; rewards and punishments being, by the way, very disproportionate. Thus they reduce everything to the scale of a somewhat unrefined egotism; and their demoralizing effects become clearer to every progressive age.

Sir Richard Francis Burton

Capitalism without bankruptcy is like Christianity without hell.

Frank Frederick Borman, II

The distinction between Christianity and all other systems of religion consists largely in this, that in these other, men are found seeking after God, while Christianity is God seeking after man.

Thomas Arnold

Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules. You can kill them with this, for they can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity.

Saul David Alinsky

The Christian missionary may preach the gospel to the poor naked heathen, but the spiritual heathen who populate Europe have as yet heard nothing of Christianity.

Carl Gustav Jung

The only thing that makes life endurable in this world is human love, and yet, according to Christianity, that is the very thing that we are not to have in the other world. We are to be so taken up with Jesus and angels, that we shall care nothing about our brothers and sisters that have been damned. We shall be so carried away with the music of the harp that we shall not even hear the wail of father and mother. Such a religion is a disgrace to human nature.

Robert Green Ingersoll

Self denial is the shining sore on the leprous body of Christianity.

Oscar Wilde

Self denial is the shining sore on the leprous body of Christianity

Oscar Wilde

This will to live was the first thing that Judaism gave to Christianity: hence that contradiction, which even today seems to many an inexplicable riddle, between a doctrine of inner conversion, toleration and mercifulness, and a religion of exclusive self-assertion and fanatical intolerance.

Houston Stewart Chamberlain

This, and this alone, is Christianity, a universal holiness in every part of life, a heavenly wisdom in all our actions, not conforming to the spirit and temper of the world but turning all worldly enjoyments into means of piety and devotion to God.

William Law

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.

Olympia Brown

Christianity is part of the laws of England.

Sir Matthew Hale

It is good, that you enlighten people about Harry Potter, because those are subtle seductions, which act unnoticed and by this deeply distort Christianity in the soul, before it can grow properly.

Pope Benedict XVI

On the day of Pentecost Christianity faced the world, a new religion, without a history, without a priesthood, without a college, without a people, and without a patron. She had only her two sacraments and her tongue of fire. The latter was her sole instrument of aggression.

William Arthur

Christianity exhorted man to set himself up against Nature, but did so in the name of his spiritual and disinterested attributes. Pragmatism exhorts him to do so in the name of his practical attributes. Formerly man was divine because he had been able to acquire the concept of justice, the idea of law, the sense of God; today he is divine because he has been able to create equipment which makes him the master of matter.

Julien Benda

Judaism is not complete without Christianity and without Judaism,Christianity would not exist

Benjamin Disraeli

Christianity, with its doctrine of humility, of forgiveness, of love, is incompatible with the state, with its haughtiness, its violence, its punishment, its wars.

Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoy
