About German

We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity. We weren't punctilious about locating and punishing only Hitler and his top officers. We carpet-bombed German cities; we killed civilians. That's war. And this is war.

- Ann Coulter

Strength Lord

I am not writing to try and convert people to fundamental Christianity. I am just trying to share my experience, strength and hope, that someone who is as messed up and neurotic and scarred and scared can be fully accepted by our dear Lord, no questions asked.

- Anne Lamott

Been Made

Christianity has not conquered nationalism; the opposite has been the case nationalism has made Christianity its footstool.

- Arthur Keith

Race Bound

It is true that Christianity is not bound up with any particular race or culture. It is neither of the East or of the West, but has a universal mission to the human race as a whole.

- Christopher Dawson

Thought About

As a Jew reading about Jesus, I thought, 'He's a pretty good guy.' It's the same conclusion Monty Python drew in 'Life of Brian' - if people actually live what he did, it would be a pretty good world. But Jesus and Christianity have a tenuous relationship at best.

- David Javerbaum

Doing Against

My feminism is what came squarely up against my faith. There's a lot of ecstatic post-patriarchal Christians who have stuff they do with that. But at that point, you're doing Christianity with a double-superscript. The Bible, and especially the book of Genesis, is pretty unapologetically patriarchal.

- John Darnielle

Christ Then

The giving of the Quran is in Islam what the incarnation of Christ is to Christianity. If this is so, then Quran-burning is parallel to Christ-crucifying.

- John Piper

American Bond

The highest glory of the American Revolution was this: it connected in one indissoluble bond the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity.

- John Quincy Adams

I Am Believer

I am a believer in the fundamental doctrines of Christianity.

- Joseph Lister

I Was Raised

I was raised Jewish. I didn't know anything about Christianity.

- Josh Young

Always More

Christianity affects your whole life. I feel I'm more competitive, a better player, but off the field is where there is always a battle.

- Barry Sanders

Some Very

Regardless of what you want to call it, guys need some type of spirituality they can grab onto. If it's Christianity, which is a very structured approach, or if it's something that's a little more open-ended... like, Zen's something you can make yourself a part of. You can interpret it for yourself, like Taoism and stuff like that.

- Barry Zito

Think My Own

There are things that I do agree with in Christianity and things that I don't agree with. I'm not a regular churchgoer, but I do think that I have my own beliefs that I feel strongly about.

- Haylie Duff

Telling Them

It seems to me that Islam and Christianity and Judaism all have the same god, and he's telling them all different things.

- Billy Connolly

Types Main

Perhaps as good a classification as any of the main types is that of the three lusts distinguished by traditional Christianity - the lust of knowledge, the lust of sensation, and the lust of power.

- Irving Babbitt

Almost Shared

Abraham is the shared ancestor of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. He stands at the heart of these three faiths. And yet you know almost nothing about him.

- Bruce Feiler

Which Part

Then there is the worst part of Christianity, which is awful: power, corruption, manipulation... But then again, these feature are ever present in any organization.

- Bruce Kent

Art Also

But in Christianity, by contrast, the freedom of the children of God was also freedom from all important worldly interests, from all art and science, etc.

- Bruno Bauer

Kind

If Christianity is a mere invention of man, and not a supernatural, divine revelation, how is it that it has wrought such a complete alteration in the state of man kind?

- J. C. Ryle

Mirror Other

While faith need not be monolithic - it can motivate both voting behavior and character development - focus matters. A Christianity constantly looking for political answers to moral and spiritual problems gives believers an excuse to blame other people when they should be looking in the mirror.

- J. D. Vance

Change Means

Christianity has stayed stable, as it must do. The doctrines don't change. The understanding of what it means to walk with God doesn't change. The reality of worship doesn't change, not at heart, anyway. So Christianity appears to be stuck.

- J. I. Packer

Which Settled

Christianity teaches that this life is not the only life, and there is a final judgment in which all earthly accounts are settled.

- Dinesh D'Souza

Am Generally

I am the third Jenkin Jones to preach that liberal interpretation of Christianity generally known as Unitarianism.

- Jenkin Lloyd Jones

Faith Reader

The most casual reader of the New Testament can scarcely fail to see the commanding position the resurrection of Christ holds in Christianity. It is the creator of its new and brighter hopes, of its richer and stronger faith, of its deeper and more exalted experience.

- Edward McKendree Bounds

Infinite

While there are corporal descriptions of what the afterlife is like in Christianity, Islam and Judaism, what's going on there is the finite trying to describe the infinite. If God knows everything, started everything and is the only one who knows how it's going to end, how can any human know what God wants?

- Keith Ellison

Patterns Like

The emergent movement is creating a mushiness to the thinking patterns in Christianity today. It's like we really can't stand for anything.

- Eric Ludy

Been Which

Acceptance of the power of God in one's life lays the groundwork for personal commitment to both science and Christianity, which so often have been in conflict.

- Kenneth L. Pike

Particularly

The history of Christianity, therefore, must be of concern to all who are interested in the record of man and particularly to all who seek to understand the contemporary human scene.

- Kenneth Scott Latourette

Need About

We need to understand that Christianity is about changing; it is not about a religion.

- Erwin McManus

Think I Think

I think Christianity is the same as Buddhism and Hinduism - whenever a religion begins to say that these are the things you have to do to be loved by God, you have a religion.

- Erwin McManus

Beating Other

Christianity takes this beating that I really don't understand and yet you can't say anything negative about the Muslims because that's horrible, you can't say anything negative about other faiths.

- Kevin Sorbo

Build Take

You take the best of our tradition as a start, and I'll take the best of Christianity ... From there we can build.

- Feisal Abdul Rauf

Accentuate

Christianity is a religion of continuity and discontinuity as well. It's about what stays the same and what changes in the twinkling of an eye. Both are necessary truths, but sometimes it's important to accentuate the discontinuity, the sudden leap, the way you go up a tree, Zacchaeus, and come down a saint.

- Francis Spufford

Evidence

Despite the best efforts of apologists like William Lane Craig, the 'evidence' for Christianity's truth is, in truth, not the kind that science will or should ever admit. We believers mean something different by the word: something that puts faith permanently in the category of irreproducible results.

- Francis Spufford

Like

Capitalism without bankruptcy is like Christianity without hell.

- Frank Borman

Why Course

All the faults of the age come from Christianity and journalism. Christianity, of course, but why journalism?

- Frank Harris

Only Form

No form of Christianity is absolutely and only true.

- Frederick Henry Hedge

Holy Common

To turn water into wine, and what is common into what is holy, is indeed the glory of Christianity.

- Frederick William Robertson

Gods Claimed

Science is only truly consistent with an atheistic worldview with regards to the claimed miracles of the gods of Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

- Lawrence M. Krauss

Love Arrival

I would love to go back to any time in European history, especially in Irish history, to the second or third century, prior to the arrival of Christianity when Paganism flourished. I can always go back there in my imagination, of course. It doesn't cost anything, and it's a form of time travel, I suppose.

- Gabriel Byrne

Testing Very

Christianity is a very historical religion - it makes specific claims that are open to testing.

- Lee Strobel

More Holy

Be assured that Christianity is something more than forms and creeds and ceremonies: there is life, and power, and reality, in our holy faith.

- George Muller

Which Fit

Christianity had two faces which bewildered me - two pictures which didn't fit.

- Lionel Blue

My Life Them

I found that when I did something for the sake of heaven, heaven happened. These things changed my life. I owe them to my encounter with Christianity.

- Lionel Blue

Think About

In speaking of Jesus, I must speak about Christianity because I do not think it possible or profitable to divide the two.

- Lionel Blue

War World War

During the Second World War, evacuated to non-Jewish households, I encountered Christianity at home and in school.

- Lionel Blue

Deep Behind

With two thousand years of Christianity behind him... a man can't see a regiment of soldiers march past without going off the deep end. It starts off far too many ideas in his head.

- Louis-Ferdinand Celine

Own Billy

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.

- Mitt Romney

Lord Altar

At the centre of Christianity is community; we are gathered by the Lord around the altar.

- Timothy Radcliffe

Today Frank

To be frank, I suspect that today there is little respect for Christianity as source of moral teaching about goodness.

- Timothy Radcliffe

Truth Next

The next challenge for Christianity is to remind Europeans that we are called to seek the truth.

- Timothy Radcliffe

Play Against

Far too many people, especially within evangelicalism, think that the individual is all that matters, and that the corporate dimension is a distraction or diversion. Of course Christianity is deeply personal for every single Christian; nobody gets lost in the kingdom of God. But you can't play that off against the corporate dimension.

- N. T. Wright

Scriptures

A Christianity that is in conflict with the Scriptures isn't Christianity at all.

- Randall Terry

Discovered

Indigenous people have discovered that Christianity is not inherently Western but universal - 'translatable' into any cultural idiom.

- Nancy Pearcey

Thriving

Religions in general have to rediscover their roots. In Hinduism and the Koran, animals are described as equals. If you walk into a cathedral and look at the decorations of early Christianity, there are vines, animals, creatures and birds thriving all over the stonework.

- Margaret Atwood

Muslim Been

I am a scholar of religions with four degrees, including one in the New Testament and fluency in Biblical Greek, who has been studying the origins of Christianity for two decades, who also happens to be Muslim.

- Reza Aslan

Power Globe

Christianity is the greatest civilizing, moulding, uplifting power on this globe.

- Mark Hopkins

Revelation

The proof that God has revealed himself to man by special and express communications, and that Christianity constitutes that revelation, is no part of these inquiries.

- Simon Greenleaf

National

National Socialism and Christianity are irreconcilable.

- Martin Bormann

Good Truths

All views can't be true because all views are opposite; this is the logical aspect. For example, Islam says we are good in nature; Christianity says we are born in sin. Islam says God is a man; Christianity says He is more than a man, He is God. All truths can't be the same.

- Norman Geisler

Truth Law

If Christianity is not scientific, and Science is not of God, then there is no invariable law, and truth becomes an accident.

- Mary Baker Eddy

Fact Highest

Christianity is the root of all democracy, the highest fact in the rights of men.

- Novalis

Science Made

It seems true that the growth of science and secularism made organized Christianity feel under threat.

- Mary Douglas

Lives Makes

Scientology, Buddhism, the Kabbalah... if it makes people's lives better, and easier, then I'll do it. Why not? People scoffed at Christianity 2,000 years ago, didn't they?

- Robbie Williams

Been Surely

All religions worthy of the name are now making great efforts to purify their doctrines and return to their original standpoint, all except Christianity! You surely know that the nineteenth century Christianity is not the religion taught by Christ. Christ's religion has been changed and corrupted.

- Virchand Gandhi

Believe Why

Mormonism is not historic Christianity. When people say, 'Well, Mormons and Christians all believe the same things,' my response is, 'If that's true, why are they always on my front doorstep trying to convert me?'

- Robert Jeffress

Made Some

No account of the Renaissance can be complete without some notice of the attempt made by certain Italian scholars of the fifteenth century to reconcile Christianity with the religion of ancient Greece.

- Walter Pater

Faith About

My first encounters with faith came about the time I was a Boy Scout, at about 14 or 15. I made the logical deduction that they operate the same way; I treated my faith like earning a merit badge, and everything about Christianity was about earning merit badges.

- Max Lucado

Nature Meant

Christianity has aimed to deliver us from a life determined by nature, from the appetites as actuating us, and so has meant that man should not let himself be determined by his appetites.

- Max Stirner

Nature Meant

Christianity has aimed to deliver us from a life determined by nature, from the appetites as actuating us, and so has meant that man should not let himself be determined by appetites.

- Max Stirner

Battle Dream

Christianity is a battle not a dream.

- Wendell Phillips

Country

Morals, principles and laws are when faith is reduced to standards and those standards basically just bind us, and we become prejudicial, racist, self-serving when we're guided by these laws... When a developed country uses Christianity in its policies, in government, in maintaining corporate wealth, that's a bastardized rendering of a faith.

- Sufjan Stevens

Nation

Our socialism does not include extreme materialistic concepts, since Indonesia is primarily a God-fearing, God-loving nation. Our socialism is a mixture. We draw political equality from the American Declaration of Independence. We draw spiritual equality from Islam and Christianity. We draw scientific equality from Marx.

- Sukarno

Concerned

The time has come when the whole world must be concerned about me. From now on, American Christianity must follow me.

- Sun Myung Moon

Piety Part

This, and this alone, is Christianity, a universal holiness in every part of life, a heavenly wisdom in all our actions, not conforming to the spirit and temper of the world but turning all worldly enjoyments into means of piety and devotion to God.

- William Law

Jesus Founder

Jesus is not the 'founder of Christianity.'

- William P. Young

Believe Away

I believe in Christianity, Judaism and Islamism, but I stay away from churches, synagogues and mosques.

- Ted Lange

Correct Our

Human nature must be changed if we are ever to have an end to war or to correct the wrong situations that make our lives uneasy and our hearts sore. Now Christianity, the power of Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit of God, is the only force that can change people for good.

- Peter Marshall

Own Average

We ministers have undoubtedly failed to connect and apply Christianity to the practical everyday problems of the average man. In this, we have failed to follow in Christ's footsteps. For the religion which He taught and revealed in His own life and ministry was an intensely practical and down-to-earth affair.

- Peter Marshall

Link Other

Ukraine is a vital link for Europe: our energy transportation networks; our location between the European Union and Eurasia. We're the melting pot of Catholicism and Orthodox Christianity. The democracy we founded with the Orange Revolution has to be an example for other post-Soviet states.

- Yulia Tymoshenko

Own Decadent

Just now, Christianity is in the ascendant. Buddhism and Taoism are decadent; their influence cannot long hold its own. Buddhism has long since passed its meridian; Taoism has only demons, not gods.

- Zhang Zhidong
