Assuming that he believes at all, the everyday Christian is a pitiful figure, a man who really cannot count up to three, and who besides, precisely because of his mental incompetence, would not deserve such a punishment as Christianity promises him. (Quote by - Friedrich Nietzsche)

Expressions of sharp and even violent criticism of religion and the church have been welcomed, for they usually imply sincerity of thought. If caustic criticism of religious institutions and practices is irreligious, then Amos, Isaiah, and Jesus were very irreligious men. In fact, that is exactly what many of their contemporaries took them to be. (Quote by - Halford E. Luccock)

Commemoration of Lanfranc, Prior of Le Bec, Archbishop of Canterbury, 1089 The denominations, churches, sects, are sociological groups whose principle of differentiation is to be sought in their conformity to the order of social classes and castes. It would not be true to affirm that the denominations are not religious groups with religious purposes; but it is true that they represent the accommodation of religion to the caste system. They are emblems, therefore, of the victory of the world over the church, of the secularization of Christianity, of the church's sanction of that divisiveness which the church's gospel condemns. (Quote by - H. Richard Niebuhr)

Yet still a sad, good Christian at the heart. (Quote by - Alexander Pope)

Mr. O'Brien should be addressing his comments to Christians. I think Muslims are surprised that many Christians don't take their faith so seriously. (Quote by - Inayat Bunglawala)

Feast of Chad, Abbot of Lastingham, Bishop of Lichfield, Missionary, 672 Peace comes when there is no cloud between us and God. Peace is the consequence of forgiveness, God's removal of that which obscures His face and so breaks union with Him. The happy sequence culminating in fellowship with God is penitence, pardon, and peace -- the first we offer, the second we accept, and the third we inherit. (Quote by - Charles H. Brent)

It is no hard matter to adhere to God while you are in the enjoyment of His comforts and consolations; but if you would prove your fidelity to Him, you must be willing to follow Him through the paths of dryness and desertion. The truth of a friend is not known while he is receiving favours and benefits from us; but if he remain faithful to us when we treat him with coldness and neglect, it will be a proof of the sincerity of his attachment. (Quote by - William Backhouse)

Since you have forsaken the world and turned wholly to God, you are symbolically dead in the eyes of men; therefore, let your heart be dead to all earthly affections and concerns, and wholly devoted to our Lord Jesus Christ. For you must be well aware that if we make an outward show of conversion to God without giving Him our hearts, it is only a shadow and pretence of virtue, and no true conversion. Any man or woman who neglects to maintain inward vigilance, and only makes an outward show of holiness in dress, speech, and behavior, is a wretched creature. For they watch the doings of other people and criticize their faults, imagining themselves to be something when in reality they are nothing. In this way they deceive themselves. Be careful to avoid this, and devote yourself inwardly to His likeness by humility, charity, and other spiritual virtues. In this way you will be truly converted to God. (Quote by - Walter Hilton)

That I am not a member of any Christian Church, is true; but I have never denied the truth of the Scriptures; and I have never spoken with intentional disrespect of religion in general, or of any denomination of Christians in particular. (Quote by - Abraham Lincoln)

Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Almost thou persuadest me to be a Christian. (Quote by - Bible)

This contest is designed just for Christian bands and artists, .. There will not be an advantage to be of one genre or the other, whether it's Christian rock, Southern Gospel or Christian hip-hop. It's about the talent of the artists. (Quote by - Joe Phillips)

There are millions of deeply Republican Christians for whom Christianity really means, saluting the American flag. (Quote by - Tom Wright)

For let us not underestimate the Christian: the Christian, "false to point of innocence", is far above the ape - regarding Christians, a well-known theory of descent becomes a mere compliment. (Quote by - Friedrich Nietzsche)

Where people are dying from hunger, they'll convert to anything if you give them food. People should feel free to decide - if somebody is convinced Christianity is the way to go and wants to become a Christian, I have no problems with that. (Quote by - Radwan Masmoudi)

If thou believest that Christ was crucified for the sins of the world, thou must with Him be crucified... If thou refusest to comply with this order, thou canst not be a living member of Christ, nor be united with Him by faith. (Quote by - John Arndt)

Christians have burnt each other, quite persuaded. That all the Apostles would have done as they did. (Quote by - Lord Byron)

His religion is a significant problem because many evangelical Christians do not believe that Mormons are Christians. To the extent that we have controversial religions in this country, LDS (Latter Day Saints) is one of them. (Quote by - Stuart Rothenberg)

Is Christianity just another special-interest group, clawing for political power? Or, even if Christians are acting as God's spokesmen, must Christians always conduct themselves politically as if Christianity were just another special-interest group? Do Christians conduct evangelism this way?. (Quote by - Gary North)

I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ. (Quote by - Mahatma Gandhi)

Commemoration of Bridget of Sweden, Abbess of Vadstena, 1373 Christ came, not so much to preach the Gospel, as that there might be a Gospel to preach. (Quote by - R. W. Dale)

When we are saved, we are at home in the universe; and, in principle and in the main, feeble and timid creatures as we are, there is nothing anywhere within the world or without it that can make us afraid. (Quote by - Bernard Bosanquet)

Many of the students are non-Christians. We don't require (students to be Christian); there's no profession of faith. (Quote by - Henry Selby)

Feast of Mary Magdalen, Apostle to the Apostles Love can forbear, and Love can forgive, ... but Love can never be reconciled to an unlovely object... He can never therefore be reconciled to your sin, because sin itself is incapable of being altered; but He may be reconciled to your person, because that may be restored. (Quote by - Thomas Traherne)

So long as we stand "under the Law", we cannot perceive this hidden unity of all the commandments. It is part of legalism that the will of God must appear to it as a multiplicity of commandments. In actual fact, it is one and indivisible; God wants nothing else except love because He Himself is love. (Quote by - Emil Brunner)

I don't think that fundamentalism has anything to do with Jesus Christ. They call themselves Christians, but if that's Christian, count me out. Fundamentalism is built on fear and greed. They're telling you to give them your money otherwise you're going to hell. (Quote by - Matthew Fox)
