I'm not sure I'll ever fully understand why some Christians get mad when we say that the ultimate hero in the Bible is not Noah, Abraham, Moses, David, Paul, etc... but Jesus.
I realised that God has placed Christians everywhere, to support each other, to support the needy in those areas, and that is the thing that I find is a great plus.
Christians are nonviolent not, therefore, because we believe that nonviolence is a strategy to rid the world of war, but because nonviolence is constitutive of what it means to be a disciple to Jesus.
My way of putting it is that Christians are called to live nonviolently not because we believe nonviolence is a strategy to rid the world of war, but in a world of war as faithful followers of Christ, we cannot imagine being anything other than nonviolent.
I thought Christians were walking idiots.
With participation in politics so low at the moment I think Christians should ensure their views are represented at all levels and not leave it to others.
Iain Duncan Smith
I hope the day that all the Christians are one. This is my dream.
Pope Theodoros II
Christians often want to hide behind the walls of the church, where we are comfortable, but sometimes we have to come out of the box.
One of the problems with the identification of Christianity with love is how such a view turns out to be both anti-Semitic and anti-Catholic. The Jews and Catholics become identified with the law or dogma, in contrast to Protestant Christians, who are about love.
If the Christians who were alive in the 1770s behaved and believed like the Christians of today, there wouldn't be an America as we know it.
It's kind of fun to listen to Christians who say: I'm a New Testament Christian. What other kind of Christian is there?
What I find is that we're all human beings and that it's all very similar, what we believe. At the bottom, there's really not that much difference between Christians and Muslims and Hindus and Buddhists. We all worship God.
Christine and I haven't raised our children. A whole community of selfless Christians has contributed to helping them become faithful, competent adults.
I do not want to convince Christians to work for the abolition of war, but rather I want us to live recognizing that in the cross of Christ, war has been abolished.
The world has already been saved from war. The question is how Christians can and should live in a world of war as a people who believe that war has been abolished.
No one believes more strongly than I do that every Christian should be a theologian. In that sense, we all need to work it out. I want all Christians who can read, to read their Bibles and to read beyond the Bible - to read the history and theology.
D. A. Carson
I do know plenty of atheists, agnostics and skeptics who have become Christians through the years. In fact, several of my friends were once strong atheists but are now committed followers of Jesus.
I suppose that I inherited the same vocabulary and world view as most black Christians do, most Christians in general, to be sure. It was heterosexist in the sense that it took the heterosexual orientation as the norm from which to start as the given. And everything that fell outside of that was not acceptable.
Michael Eric Dyson
The faith I was born into formed me. I come from a missionary family - I grew up in China - and in my case, my religious upbringing was positive. Of course, not everyone has this experience. I know many of my students are what I have come to think of as wounded Christians or wounded Jews.
It is important to have a circle of Christians friends, which I do have.
I want to create the largest archive of great God debates in existence: a Web site that becomes a great resource for both Christians and atheists.
A fully positive relationship between Christians and Jews is one that would elide all differences.
Many of us, both Jews and Christians, want the public square to be pluralistic, which is neither partisan nor naked.
You gotta love these Christians, they're humble people.
Christians must share their faith in obedience to the Great Commission, because we are only seeing the fruit of sin this side of death.
John F. Kennedy
