The Christian Ideal Has Not Been Tried And Found Wanting. It Has Been Found Difficult And Left Untried.
~ Gilbert Keith Chesterton
Being Filled With The Holy Spirit, Then, Is A Matter Of Obedience To The Word Of God. The Filling Of The Spirit That All Experienced At Pentecost Was A Matter Of A Promise Being Fulfilled. Today, The Believer Is To Be Filled In Obedience To The Command Of Ephesians 518, Continuously, Not Merely By A Single, Crisis Experience. The Christian Life Is A Growth Process Toward Maturity.
~ Clarence Crame
The Good Christian Should Beware The Mathematician And All Those Who Make Empty Prophecies. The Danger Already Exists That The Mathematicians Have Made A Covenant With The Devil To Darken The Spirit And To Confine Man In The Bonds Of Hell.
~ Saint Augustine
The Christian Resolution To Find The World Ugly And Bad Has Made The World Ugly And Bad.
~ Friedrich Nietzsche
It Does Not Require Great Learning To Be A Christian And Be Convinced Of The Truth Of The Bible. It Requires Only An Honest Heart And A Willingness To Obey God.
~ Albert Coombs Barnes
The So-called Method Of Co-education Is False In Theory And Hamful To Christian Training.
~ Pope Pius XI
The Goal Of Every Married Couple, Indeed, Every Christian Home, Should Be To Make Christ The Head, The Counselor And The Guide.
~ Paul Sadle
The Christian Cannot Be Satisfied So Long As Any Human Activity Is Either Opposed To Christianity Or Out Of Connection With Christianity. Christianity Must Pervade Not Merely All Nations But Also All Of Human Thought.
~ J. Gresham Machen
The Most Eloquent Prayer Is The Prayer Through Hands That Heal And Bless. The Highest Form Of Worship Is The Worship Of Unselfish Christian Service. The Greatest Form Of Praise Is The Sound Of Consecrated Feet Seeking Out The Lost And Helpless.
~ William Franklin Billy Graham
I Admire The Serene Assurance Of Those Who Have Religious Faith. It Is Wonderful To Observe The Calm Confidence Of A Christian With Four Aces.
~ Mark Twain
If people really want to go, and really try all their lives, I think they will get in; for I don't believe there are any locks on that door, or any guards at the gate. I always imagine it is as it is in the picture, where the shining ones stretch out their hands to welcome poor Christian as he comes up from the river.
~ Louisa May Alcott, Little Women
A Man Who Is Eating Or Lying With His Wife Or Preparing To Go To Sleep In Humility, Thankfulness And Temperance, Is, By Christian Standards, In An Infinitely Higher State Than One Who Is Listening To Bach Or Reading Plato In A State Of Pride.
~ Clive Staples Lewis
