I don't know what religious people do. I kind of wished I'd been a Christian with the blind faith that God is doing the right thing. As a Buddhist, you feel like you have more control over the situation, and that you can change your karma.
No egoism is so insufferable as that of the Christian with regard to his soul.
W. Somerset Maugham
Christian faith is... basically about love and being loved and reconciliation. These things are so important, they're foundational and they can transform individuals, families.
Of all religions, the Christian should of course inspire the most tolerance, but until now Christians have been the most intolerant of all men.
The Christian leader of the future is called to be completely irrelevant and to stand in this world with nothing to offer but his or her own vulnerable self. God loves us, not because of what we do or accomplish, but because God has created and redeemed us in love.
I think every good Christian ought to kick Falwell right in the ass.
When you have a sense of calling, whether it's to be a musician, soloist, artist, in one of the technical fields, or a plumber, there is something deep and enriching when you realize it isn't just a casual choice, it's a divine calling. It's not limited to vocational Christian service by any means.
Charles R. Swindoll
Better to sleep with a sober cannibal than a drunken Christian.
No truth is more evident to my mind than that the Christian religion must be the basis of any government intended to secure the rights and privileges of a free people.
It's a shame that so many people are so intimidated and bothered by Tim Tebow's stance as a Christian. He's not bothering anybody. He's simply being who He is and giving all glory to His Lord.
I have for some time now been deeply troubled by the growing difficulties faced by Christian communities in various parts of the Middle East. It seems to me that we cannot ignore the fact that Christians in the Middle East are increasingly being deliberately targeted by fundamentalist Islamist militants.
Writing songs out of my faith was a real natural progression. I grew up singing in my dad's choir and singing with my family. Christian music became the music that I identified myself with and was a way that I expressed my faith. Even at a public school I would take my Christian music in and play it for my friends.
Steven Curtis Chapman
As with the Christian religion, the worst advertisement for Socialism is its adherents.
There's nobody who doesn't have problems with the church, because there's sin in the church. But there's no other place to be a Christian except the church.
Eugene H. Peterson
One of my biggest fears - maybe my biggest weakness as a Christian - is that I have a hard time going up to a stranger and talking to them about Jesus.
I have now disposed of all my property to my family. There is one thing more I wish I could give them, and that is the Christian religion.
I am not a Christian because God changed my life; I am a Christian because of my convictions about who Jesus Christ is.
I am totally convinced the Christian faith is the most coherent worldview around.
God's way of answering the Christian's prayer for more patience, experience, hope and love often is to put him into the furnace of affliction.
We are 100 percent responsible for the pursuit of holiness, but at the same time we are 100 percent dependent upon the Holy Spirit to enable us in that pursuit. The pursuit of holiness is not a pull-yourself-up-by-your-own-bootstraps approach to the Christian life.
Truth, according to the Christian faith, is God's love for us in Jesus Christ. Therefore, truth is a relationship.
A real Christian is a person who can give his pet parrot to the town gossip.
A man ought to live so that everybody knows he is a Christian... and most of all, his family ought to know.
Dwight L. Moody
God is not upset that Gandhi was not a Christian, because God is not a Christian! All of God's children and their different faiths help us to realize the immensity of God.
When a man becomes a Christian, he becomes industrious, trustworthy and prosperous. Now, if that man, when he gets all he can and saves all he can, does not give all he can, I have more hope for Judas Iscariot than for that man!
C. S. Lewis
Martin Luther King, Jr.
