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.
Capitalism without bankruptcy is like Christianity without hell.
Christianity is not the faith of the complacent, the comfortable or of the timid. It demands and creates heroic souls like Wesley, Wilberforce, Bonhoeffer, John Paul the Second, and Billy Graham. Each showed, in their own way, the relentless and powerful influence of the message of Jesus Christ.
Christianity has not been tried and found wanting; it has been found difficult and not tried.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
Having embraced Islam, I felt as if I were born again. I found in Islam the answers to those queries which I had failed to find in Christianity.
Surely the principles of Christianity lead to action as well as meditation.
Nothing is more witty and grotesque than ancient mythology and Christianity; that is because they are so mystical.
Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel
The generous wish to share with all what is precious, to spread broadcast priceless truths, to shut out none from the illumination of true knowledge, has resulted in a zeal without discretion that has vulgarised Christianity, and has presented its teachings in a form that often repels the heart and alienates the intellect.
I realize that many elements of the Buddhist teaching can be found in Christianity, Judaism, Islam. I think if Buddhism can help, it is the concrete methods of practice.

I do think that there is a hunger in the land for a vision of confessional Christianity that is robust, God-centered, tough-minded, able to address today and tomorrow and the next day, and comprehensive.
D. A. Carson
Christianity supplies a Hell for the people who disagree with you and a Heaven for your friends.
People define Christianity differently. I think a large portion of our population are Christians, they're not all growing in their faith, they're not all active, but I believe that a lot of people believe in Jesus and believe that he is their Lord and Savior.
Giving every man a vote has no more made men wise and free than Christianity has made them good.
H. L. Mencken

I want to look my best for God. So many people have the attitude that if you're a Christian you've got to dress bad, wear an old color, not do anything to your hair, have nothing. It's no wonder that Christianity is not very attractive. I mean, how many people do you know in a Western culture that's going to go, 'Yeah, give me some of that?'

Every spiritual tradition has this idea of death and resurrection. It's not unique to Christianity.
I won't say that the papers misquote me, but I sometimes wonder where Christianity would be today if some of those reporters had been Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
We can't equate democracy with Christianity because the largest democracy on earth is India, which is primarily Hindu. The third largest democracy is Indonesia, which is Islamic. Democracy and freedom are not dependent on Christian beliefs.
Almost every sect of Christianity is a perversion of its essence, to accommodate it to the prejudices of the world.
Christianity is not a theory or speculation, but a life; not a philosophy of life, but a life and a living process.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
C. S. Lewis
Leonardo da Vinci
