I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else. (Quote by - Gerald Stanley Lee)

Inward rest... gives an air of leisure to [Christ's] crowded life: above all, there is in this Man a secret and a power of dealing with the waste-products of life, the waste of pain, disappointment, enmity, death -- turning to divine uses the abuses of man, transforming arid places of pain to fruitfulness, triumphing at last in death, and making a short life of thirty years or so, abruptly cut off, to be a "finished" life. We cannot admire the poise and beauty of this human life, and then ignore the things that made it. (Quote by - A. E. Whitham)

We knew we had to find a way to keep (Christian) from scoring so many points, because she can light you up in a hurry. We tried to just rotate and keep somebody fresh on (Christian) at all times. (Quote by - Danny Wrenn)

Until our mission with the Christian Church is over, we must quote the Bible and use it to explain the Divine Principle. After we receive the inheritance of the Christian Church, we will be free to teach without the Bible. Now, however, our primary mission is to witness to the Christian Church. (Quote by - Sun Myung Moon)

The religious desire and effort of the soul to relate itself and all its interest to God and his will, is prayer in the deepest sense. This is essential prayer: uttered or unexpressed, it is equally prayer. It is the soul's desire after God going forth in a manifestation, ... the soul striving after God. This is a prayer that may exist without ceasing, consisting, as it does, not in doing or saying this or that, but in temper and attitude of the spirit. (Quote by - P. B. Brown)

Feast of Stephen, Deacon, First Martyr Lord of all pots and pans and things, since I've no time to be A saint by doing lovely things, or watching late with Thee, Or dreaming in the dawn-light, or storming Heaven's gates, Make me a saint by getting meals and washing up the plates. Although I must have Martha's hands, I have a Mary mind, And when I black the boots and shoes, Thy sandals, Lord, I find. I think of how they trod the earth, what time I scrub the floor: Accept this meditation, Lord, I haven't time for more. Warm all the kitchen with Thy love, and light it with Thy peace; Forgive me all my worrying, and make my grumbling cease. Thou who didst love to give men food, in room or by the sea, Accept this service that I do -- I do it unto Thee. (Quote by - Cecily Halleck)

Lord, since Thou hast taken from me all that I had of Thee, yet of Thy grace leave me the gift which every dog has by nature: that of being true to Thee in my distress, when I am deprived of all consolation. (Quote by - Mechthild Of Magdeburg)

Evolution Sunday?represents a new kind of grassroots effort by members of the Christian leadership in America to reclaim Christianity from those using it for their narrow sectarian advantage. (Quote by - Michael Zimmerman)

When we work with individual charitable organizations, there's often an assumption that Christians support Christian ministries over non-religious organizations. This study conclusively shows that assumption to be false, and that in fact over half of all Protestant churchgoers don?t even give any preference to Christian organizations in their giving decisions. It's critical that Christian organizations really understand this about their target market. (Quote by - Ron Sellers)

The 'unified field theory' of Christian theology is: Jesus is God. "The journey is the destination: the way on is the way home". "To revisit everything you think you know is to rediscover what you had yet to learn". (Quote by - Rod Woods)

Persons of mean understandings, not so inquisitive, nor so well instructed, are made good Christians, and by reverence and obedience, implicity believe, and abide by their belief. (Quote by - Michael Eyquen de Montaigne)

Like many of the leaders and teacher [in the church], perhaps I failed to prepare people for the way of suffering. I had not suffered much myself and did not help people to be ready for it. But the fact is: when you follow Jesus, what happened to Him happens to you. (Quote by - Todd H. Wetzel)

Unlike Christianity, which preached a peace that it never achieved, Islam unashamedly came with a sword. (Quote by - Stephen Runciman)

Feast of Barnabas the Apostle The disorder of secularism is perhaps nowhere more apparent in our contemporary Church than in the extent to which we have permitted the order of the world to creep into the order of the Church... That it should carry out its mission to the men in the middle classes of capitalist society is doubtless a part of the Church's order; but that the mission should result in the formation of a middle-class church which defends the secular outlook and interests of that class is an evident corruption. (Quote by - H. Richard Niebuhr)

I think it's ignorance of both the Christian religion and politics to think that Christians have to be Republican. (Quote by - Amy Moore)

Christianity is part of the Common Law of England. (Quote by - Mathew Hale)

Feast of Cuthbert, Bishop of Lindisfarne, Missionary, 687 It seems clear that those people who personally are completely convinced of justification by grace alone, and who heartily grant to people of another color the right to the same justification (as long as they remain in their own churches, schools, ghettos, handyman occupations), give an ugly expression to the Augustinian and Reformation understanding of justification. By their emphasis upon the primacy of individual justification, they deny the immediate social character and impact of the justification of the Jews and Gentiles, and they obstruct or delay the changes in common life which belong to the "new creation". (Quote by - Markus Barth)

Newton, Pascal, Bossuet, Racine, F nelon -- that is to say, some of the most enlightened men on earth, in the most philosophical of all ages -- have been believers in Jesus Christ; and the great Cond , when dying, repeated these noble words, "Yes, I shall see God as He is, face to face!". (Quote by - Vauvenargues)

Feast of Mary Magdalen, Apostle to the Apostles When our lives are focused on God, awe and wonder lead us to worship God, filling our inner being with a fullness we would never have thought possible. Awe prepares the way in us for the power of God to transform us and this transformation of our inner attitudes can only take place when awe leads us in turn to wonder, admiration, reverence, surrender, and obedience toward God. (Quote by - James Houston)

The devil loves 'curing' a small fault by giving you a great one. (Quote by - C.S. Lewis)

If Christians are ever to be united, they must be united in Christ, their living head and the source of their spiritual life. (Quote by - Philip Schaff)

Christian life consists of faith and charity. (Quote by - Martin Luther)

Commemoration of Allen Gardiner, founder of the South American Missionary Society, 1851 Commemoration of Albert Schweitzer, Teacher, Physician, Missionary, 1965 The renewal of our natures is a work of great importance. It is not to be done in a day. We have not only a new house to build up, but an old one to pull down. (Quote by - George Whitefield)

Insofar as theology is an attempt to define and clarify intellectual positions, it is apt to lead to discussion, to differences of opinion, even to controversy, and hence to be divisive. And this has had a strong tendency to dampen serious discussion of theological issues in most groups, and hence to strengthen the general anti-intellectual bias... (Quote by - Sidney E. Mead)

If Christians would really live according to the teachings of Christ, as found in the Bible, all of India would be Christian today. (Quote by - Mahatma Gandhi)
