Many of the seminal social issues of our time - poverty, lack of education, human trafficking, war and torture, domestic abuse - can track their way to our theology of, or beliefs about, women, which has its roots in what we believe about the nature, purposes, and character of God. ~ Sarah Bessey
Character Of God quotes by Sarah Bessey
We have full confidence in Jesus Christ. Our confidence rises as the character of God becomes greater and more trustworthy to our spiritual comprehension. The One with whom we deal is the One who embodies faithfulness and truth-the One who cannot lie. ~ Aiden Wilson Tozer
Character Of God quotes by Aiden Wilson Tozer
But the plan of redemption had a yet broader and deeper purpose than the salvation of man. It was not for this alone that Christ came to the earth; it was not merely that the inhabitants of this little world might regard the law of God as it should be regarded; but it was to vindicate the character of God before the universe. To this result of his great sacrifice - its influence upon the intelligences of other worlds, as well as upon man - the Saviour looked forward when just before his crucifixion he said: "Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all unto [69] Me." John 12:31, 32. The act of Christ in dying for the salvation of man would not only make heaven accessible to men, but before all the universe it would justify God and his Son in their dealing with the rebellion of Satan. It would establish the perpetuity of the law of God and would reveal the nature and the results of sin. ~ Ellen G. White
Character Of God quotes by Ellen G. White
Nothing can alter the character of God. In the course of a human life, tastes and outlook and temper may change radically: a kind, equable man may turn bitter and crotchety: a man of good-will may grow cynical and callous. But nothing of this sort happens to the Creator. He never becomes less truthful, or merciful, or just, or good, than He used to be. ~ J.I. Packer
Character Of God quotes by J.I. Packer
When we say "Thy will be done," do we say it with a sigh? If so, we have never realized that the character of God is holy love; nothing can ever happen outside His purposeful will. ~ Oswald Chambers
Character Of God quotes by Oswald Chambers
God is the I AM that I AM not the I AM that we wish. ~ Jen Pollock Michel
Character Of God quotes by Jen Pollock Michel
The very nature and character of God is seen all throughout His created universe." Job remarked, "But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee; and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell thee: or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee: and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee.
Job 12:7-8 ~ Institute In Basic Life Principles
Character Of God quotes by Institute In Basic Life Principles
The character of Jesus is the character of God. God would never do something Jesus would find morally reprehensible, so if you can't find it in Jesus, then you really ought to think twice before you claim you've found it in God. ~ Austin Fischer
Character Of God quotes by Austin Fischer
Worship is not something we "work up," it is something that "comes down" to us, from the character of God. ~ Sinclair B. Ferguson
Character Of God quotes by Sinclair B. Ferguson
Oh the folly of any mind that would explain God before obeying Him! That would map out the character of God instead of crying, Lord, what wouldst thou have me to do? ~ George MacDonald
Character Of God quotes by George MacDonald
No short-cut that tries to bypass the patient unfolding of the true character of God, and our relationship to him as his children, can ever succeed in providing long-term spiritual therapy. ~ Sinclair B. Ferguson
Character Of God quotes by Sinclair B. Ferguson
Stand somewhere on the character of God, and you will see the impossibles becoming possibles ~ JOEL NYARANGI AKOYA
Character Of God quotes by JOEL NYARANGI AKOYA
The foundation of worship in the heart is not emotional ... it is theological. ~ Sinclair B. Ferguson
Character Of God quotes by Sinclair B. Ferguson
Sadly, the book of Job was but a speed bump on the Deuteronomic superhighway. The delusion of divine punishments still prevails inside and outside religion over the clear evidence of human consequences, random accidents, and natural disasters. This does not simply distort theology; it defames the very character of God. ~ John Dominic Crossan
Character Of God quotes by John Dominic Crossan
God is a person, and his universe reflects his personhood. The closer something is to the character of God, the more it reflects him and the less it can be measured. Things such as integrity, beauty, hope, and love are all in the same category as prayer. You can tell their presence and even describe them, but you can't define them, simply because they are too close to God's image. ~ Paul E. Miller
Character Of God quotes by Paul E. Miller
The Incarnation, which is for traditional Christianity synonymous with the historical birth and earthly life of Christ, is for mystics of a certain type, not only this but also a perpetual Cosmic and personal process. It is an everlasting bringing forth, in the universe and also in the individual ascending soul, of the divine and perfect Life, the pure character of God, of which the one historical life dramatized the essential constituents. Hence the soul, like the physical embryo, resumes in its upward progress the spiritual life-history of the race. "The one secret, the greatest of all," says Patmore, is "the doctrine of the Incarnation, regarded not as an historical event which occurred two thousand years ago, but as an event which is renewed in the body of every one who is in the way to the fulfilment of his original destiny." 239 ~ Evelyn Underhill
Character Of God quotes by Evelyn Underhill
The author says our prayers are misdirected when we ask God that He help us to love Him more. If we pray to him more, we will love Him more. ~ Jen Pollock Michel
Character Of God quotes by Jen Pollock Michel
We're not trying to prove the character of God through science. That's a bad idea. What I'm trying to do is clear away the misunderstandings, the debris that prevent people from accepting that God who wants to accept them. ~ Phillip E. Johnson
Character Of God quotes by Phillip E. Johnson
The certainty of our salvation rests on the character of God. ~ F.B. Meyer
Character Of God quotes by F.B. Meyer
If I know anything about the character of God after fifty years of ministry, I know that God hates abortion. ~ R.C. Sproul
Character Of God quotes by R.C. Sproul
God wants us to lament. Complaint doesn't see the goodness of the character of God. Lament is authentic about the feelings but knows the goodness and benevolence of God. ~ Ann Voskamp
Character Of God quotes by Ann Voskamp
Everything we say or do will either illuminate or obscure the character of God. Sanctification is the process of joyfully growing luminous. ~ Jen Wilkin
Character Of God quotes by Jen Wilkin
The movement Mark records of Jesus is a deliberate display of the character of God so that we may know him and his ways. Jesus could have avoided the synagogue and the encounter on the Sabbath. Instead, Jesus confronts this violent injustice to the character of God propagated by Israel's current religious and political leaders. (Mark 3)-from He has to die ~ Jonah
Character Of God quotes by Jonah
So don't be troubled by trouble. Circumstances cannot change the character of God. God's grace is still in full force; he is still for you, even when you don't feel it. In ~ Rick Warren
Character Of God quotes by Rick Warren
Love is a virtue and not a feeling. It is fed and fired by God- not by the favorable response of the beloved. Even when it doesn't seem to make a dime's worth of difference to the ones on whom it is lavished, it is still the most prized of all virtues because it is at the heart of the very character of God. ~ Rich Mullins
Character Of God quotes by Rich Mullins
If what God says is the truest thing about us, then it makes sense to follow him and accept our As-Is condition as the starting point. Thomas Merton said, 'The reason we never enter into the deepest reality of our relationship with God is that we so seldom acknowledge our utter nothingness before him.' If we confess the truth about ourselves, there's every reason to fear God will say, 'Yeah, that's right; and anotherthing...' and we're fairly sure there will be another thing. We are like people afraid to tell the doctor where we really hurt because we fear we may be sicker than we think.

We are sicker than we think. We're dying and, crazily, running from the healer because we're ashamed, because we hate ourselves for all we are and all we're not. ~ Brennan Manning
Character Of God quotes by Brennan Manning
The major strategy of Satan is to distort the character of God and the truth of who we are. He can't change God and he can't do anything to change our identity and position in Christ. If, however, he can get us to believe a lie, we will live as though our identity in Christ isn't true. ~ Neil T. Anderson
Character Of God quotes by Neil T. Anderson
When we trust, we reflect the character of God. ~ Bill Donahue
Character Of God quotes by Bill Donahue
I am confident in my FAITH because I know the character of God and am assured by the love and mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ ~ Karen Gibbs
Character Of God quotes by Karen Gibbs
Let's take back the rainbow for God. Let the homosexual community find a different religious symbol to commandeer ... What I want is for the Christian community to wake up, wipe the sleep from their eyes, and realize that they are in a spiritual battle that isn't going away and has no demilitarized zones. The rainbow is a symbol, but it's meaning points to the very character of God. So Christians, use this God-given symbol for His glory. Using it won't make you a homosexual. ~ Ken Hutcherson
Character Of God quotes by Ken Hutcherson
Clever techniques borrowed from slick salesmen have no place in evangelism because they are not crafted with the character of God in mind. ~ John Snyder
Character Of God quotes by John Snyder
The true foundation of theology is to ascertain the character of God. It is by the aid of Statistics that law in the social sphere can be ascertained and codified, and certain aspects of the character of God thereby revealed. The study of statistics is thus a religious service. ~ Florence Nightingale
Character Of God quotes by Florence Nightingale
The character of God is today, and always will be, exactly what it was in Bible times. ~ J.I. Packer
Character Of God quotes by J.I. Packer
The earthly father is a God-given mnemonic device to remind us of the glory of the heavenly Father. The shepherd is a mnemonic device to remind us of God's care for his own. The snow is meant to remind us of the Lord's purity and holiness. The storm is a mnemonic device to remind us of God's power and wrath. The daily rising sun is a mnemonic device to remind us of God's faithfulness. We're literally surrounded by gracious reminders of the presence, power, authority, and character of God because he designed created things to function mnemonically. He knows how quickly and easily we forget and how vital it is for us to remember, so he embedded reminders everywhere we look in his creation. ~ Paul David Tripp
Character Of God quotes by Paul David Tripp
How we understand the person and character of God the Father affects every aspect of our lives. It affects far more than what we normally call the "religious" aspect of our lives. If God is the Creator of the entire universe, then it must follow that He is Lord of the whole universe. No part of the world is outside of His lordship. His Holy character has something to say about economics, politics, athletics, romance - everything with which we are involved. ~ R.C. Sproul
Character Of God quotes by R.C. Sproul
You have to work on it. You have to meditate on God's Word, which itself will change you and transform you into the image and character of God. ~ Sunday Adelaja
Character Of God quotes by Sunday Adelaja
Through our struggles and pain, we are being offered perseverance, the character of God. Hardships are intended to give us a spiritual makeover, "that we may share in his holiness" (Heb. 12:10). Therefore, when God encourages us to persevere, he is not stumbling for encouraging words. He is teaching us how to look like him. ~ Edward T. Welch
Character Of God quotes by Edward T. Welch
Kingdom is a signpost to the holy. ~ Jen Pollock Michel
Character Of God quotes by Jen Pollock Michel
True spirituality covers all of reality. There are things the Bible tells us to do as absolutes which are sinful- which do not conform to the character of God. But aside from these things the Lordship of Christ covers all of life and all of life equally. It is not only that true spirituality covers all of life, but it covers all parts of the spectrum of life equally. In this sense there is nothing concerning reality that is not spiritual. ~ Francis A. Schaeffer
Character Of God quotes by Francis A. Schaeffer
Joy isn't grounded in our circumstances; it is grounded in the unchanging character of God. ~ Carolyn Custis James
Character Of God quotes by Carolyn Custis James
Everything we learn - economics, philosophy, biology, mathematics - has to be understood in light of the overarching reality of the character of God. That is why, in the Middle Ages, theology was called "the queen of the sciences" and philosophy "her handmaiden." Today the queen has been deposed from her throne and, in many cases, driven into exile, and a supplanter now reigns. We have replaced theology with religion. ~ R.C. Sproul
Character Of God quotes by R.C. Sproul
Always let people see a reflection of God in you ~ Sunday Adelaja
Character Of God quotes by Sunday Adelaja
Election has nothing to do with the eternal salvation of individuals but refers instead to God's way of saving nations. It was a major mistake of the Reformation to have decided to follow Augustine in this matter, taking election to refer to grace and salvation. It manages to make bad news out of good news. It casts a deep shadow over the character of God. At it worst, it can lead to awful consequences in terms of pride, arrogance, superiority, and intolerance as the ideology of election takes hold. It causes the church to become, not a sign of the unity of humanity in the love of God, but the sign of favorites in the midst of the enemies of God. ~ Clark H. Pinnock
Character Of God quotes by Clark H. Pinnock
Yet we don't have to fall into those failing responses. Instead, we can look to Scripture and the character of God for insights on living. In a conversation with Lee, he shared, "After many of the great movements of God, He asked His people to build a memorial so that they would remember what He had done. God created a system of spiritual ceremonies for His people to celebrate regularly as families to remember what He had done. When Jesus was on His way to the cross, He used the symbols of wine and bread to teach about what was going to happen to Him. Then He invited His followers to 'do this in remembrance of [Him]' as a ceremony to help them remember. ~ Michelle Anthony
Character Of God quotes by Michelle Anthony
We will not wake up ten years from now and find we have passively taken on the character of God. ~ Jen Wilkin
Character Of God quotes by Jen Wilkin
There is a popular notion about prayer that assumes that the thing asked for ought to be the object of faith - "Lord, give me this or that," wherefore "this" and "that" become the realities. No. The Bible states the absolutes that we can be certain of: the character of God, His love, His will that we be conformed to His Son's likeness, His sovereign control of all the universe. When faith latches on to those realities that we do not see with our eyes, it can never be confounded. If it makes the thing asked for its object, faith itself will dissolve if the Lord's answer is no, not yet or wait. In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion (Ps. 71:1, KJV). D ~ Elisabeth Elliot
Character Of God quotes by Elisabeth Elliot
God's holiness is not an unloving holiness, and God's love is not an unholy love. It is only by keeping these two primary moral qualities of the divine being closely related that we may rightly behold the character of God. (p. 98) ~ Thomas C. Oden
Character Of God quotes by Thomas C. Oden
To draw close to Divinity is to come to appreciate man as a divine creation, for "If men do not comprehend the character of God, they do not comprehend themselves" (Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, 343). ~ Robert L. Millet
Character Of God quotes by Robert L. Millet
We are not to be anxious about the unknown future or to fret about it. We are to live in a moment-by-moment dependence upon God. ~ James Montgomery Boice
Character Of God quotes by James Montgomery Boice
If men do not comprehend the character of God, they do not comprehend themselves ...
If the veil were rent today, and the great God who holds the world in its orbit, and who upholds all worlds and all things by His power, was to make Himself visible, - I say, if you were to see Him today, you would see Him like a man in form - like yourself in all the person, image, and very form as a man. ~ Joseph Smith Jr.
Character Of God quotes by Joseph Smith Jr.
True faith rests upon the character of God and asks no further proof than the moral perfections of the One who cannot lie. ~ A.W. Tozer
Character Of God quotes by A.W. Tozer
People who don't know the true character of God - who don't believe He is merciful, gracious and slow to anger - can never have a close, personal, intimate relationship with Him. ~ Joyce Meyer
Character Of God quotes by Joyce Meyer
God has chosen to save the world through the cross, through the shameful and
powerless death of the crucified Messiah. If that shocking event is the
revelation of the deepest truth about the character of God, then our whole way
of seeing the world is turned upside down… all values are transformed… God
refuses to play games of power and prestige on human terms. ~ Richard B. Hays
Character Of God quotes by Richard B. Hays
The great variety of moral qualities attributed to God by Scripture revolves particularly around two - holiness and love. These may be said in summary form to constitute the moral character of God ~ Thomas C. Oden
Character Of God quotes by Thomas C. Oden
The upright, if he suffer calumny to move him, fears the tongue of man more than the eye of God. ~ Charles Caleb Colton
Character Of God quotes by Charles Caleb Colton
Photography is the typical means of expression of a society founded on a civilization of technicians, conscious of the aims it has set for itself ... Its power of exactly reproducing external reality, a power inherent in its technique, lends it a documentary character and makes it appear as the most faithful and impartial process for the reproduction of social life. ~ Gisele Freund
Character Of God quotes by Gisele Freund
There is only one passion that can help us control the many other passions that plague us; that is the passion to know and obey God. When we get out of touch with Christ, we begin touching the things of the world, trying to fill the void that human flesh craves. ~ Billy Graham
Character Of God quotes by Billy Graham
I feel as if we're the centre of the universe and a kind God has blessed two imperfect people with a perfect moment. ~ Linda Castillo
Character Of God quotes by Linda Castillo
If you feel the undertow of depression slowly pulling you out into the depths, don't rage at the heavens; don't wear yourself out trying to recover. Wait on God, rest in Him, and let Him pull your spirit homeward. All the tides of this world move toward Him. ~ David Jeremiah
Character Of God quotes by David Jeremiah
Man is a marvelous curiosity. When he is at his very very best he is a sort of low grade nickel-plated angel; at is worst he is unspeakable, unimaginable; and first and last and all the time he is a sarcasm. Yet he blandly and in all sincerity calls himself the noblest work of God. ~ Mark Twain
Character Of God quotes by Mark Twain
The first purpose of your life is to be loved by God! Yes, it is important to serve him, obey, and trust him, but your first purpose is to love him. ~ Rick Warren
Character Of God quotes by Rick Warren
People's character is their behaviour - we're all capable of good and evil. ~ Bertie Carvel
Character Of God quotes by Bertie Carvel
Emotions of any kind are produced by melody and rhythm; therefore by music a man becomes accustomed to feeling the right emotions; music has thus the power to form character, and the various kinds of music based on various modes may be distinguished by their effects on character. ~ Aristotle.
Character Of God quotes by Aristotle.
You are a man, not God; you are human, not an angel. How can you expect to remain always in a constant state of virtue, when this was not possible even for an angel of Heaven, nor for the first man in the Garden? ~ Thomas A Kempis
Character Of God quotes by Thomas A Kempis
What all Christians should appreciate is that the more they can grasp about migration and the experiences of immigrants, the more they will understand their faith - that is, the truths of such convictions as the reality of having another (heavenly) citizenship and the rejection that can come from being different, as well as the vulnerability that surfaces with needing to be dependent on God. Sadly, it is not uncommon for Christians to not feel like "strangers in a strange land"; their place of residence has lost its strangeness, and now they join others in wanting to keep strangers out. The ~ M. Daniel Carroll R.
Character Of God quotes by M. Daniel Carroll R.
Innocent and virtuous, she represented the exact type of female he avoided... God, she was a taking thing, even for an avaricious reformer. ~ Karen Hawkins
Character Of God quotes by Karen Hawkins
But we don't pray for that, I pray that I may do the will of God here. Give us this day ... ~ Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Character Of God quotes by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
If we truly believe that we are the righteousness of God through Jesus Christ, our actions would begin to reflect that belief. ~ Alisa Hope Wagner
Character Of God quotes by Alisa Hope Wagner
That's the reason I believe in the power of prayer, because I believe you have to be able to first believe in a being superior to you, You have to believe in God and once you're able to believe in God and embrace the greatness of the creator, then you're able to believe in yourself and embrace the greatness that God put into you and each of us, and you're able to tap into that. But there will be days. ~ Cathy Hughes
Character Of God quotes by Cathy Hughes
In the doctrine of the Trinity," wrote Herman Bavinck, "beats the heart of the whole revelation of God for the redemption of humanity." As the Father, the Son, and the Spirit, "our God is above us, before us, and within us." The doctrine of the Trinity - God as one in essence and three in person - shapes and structures Christian faith and practice in every way, distinguishing it from all world religions. ~ Michael S. Horton
Character Of God quotes by Michael S. Horton
These troubles and distresses that you go through in these waters are no sign that God has forsaken you. They are sent to call to your mind that which you have received of His goodness, that you may trust Him in your distress. ~ James Thomas
Character Of God quotes by James Thomas
What was it that obliged Jerome to write his book, Concerning Illustrious Men? It was the common reproach of old cast upon Christians, 'That they were all poor, weak, unlearned men.' The sort of men sometime called 'Puritans' in the English nation have been reproached with the same character ... But when truth shall have liberty to speak, it will be known that Christianity never was more expressed unto the life than in the lives of the persons that have been thus reproached. ~ Cotton Mather
Character Of God quotes by Cotton Mather
Your greatest need is not a spouse. Your greatest need is to be delivered from the wrath of God - and that has already been accomplished for you through the death and resurrection of Christ. So why doubt that God will provide a much, much lesser need? Trust His sovereignty, trust His wisdom, trust His love. ~ C.J. Mahaney
Character Of God quotes by C.J. Mahaney
By May, 1st, 1937, there should not be one single church left within the borders of Soviet Russia, and the idea of God will have been banished from the Soviet Union as a remnant of the Middle Ages, which has been used for the purpose of oppressing the working classes. ~ Joseph Stalin
Character Of God quotes by Joseph Stalin
What kind of dog is that?" I would always give the same answer: "She's a brown dog." Similarly, when the question is raised, "What kind of God do you believe in?" my answer is easy: "I believe in a magnificent God. ~ Elizabeth Gilbert
Character Of God quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
Within the nature of God is a strength that is fashioned in His perfection. Strength flows from the fountain of God's integrity. Honest people are the strongest people. ~ James MacDonald
Character Of God quotes by James MacDonald
Think of Jonathan Edwards who thundered the terrors of God and what Hell was like until men grasped their seats and hung on to them, fearing they were falling into Hell itself. Men were moved by fear to escape damnation. That was believed to be Christianity. Why any coward wanted to keep out of Hell. He might not have had one idea in his soul of what was the real true earmark of Christianity. ~ John G. Lake
Character Of God quotes by John G. Lake
The faculty of continual transformation ... is a profound expression of the dynamic character of the mind ~ Anagarika Govinda
Character Of God quotes by Anagarika Govinda
We're not attacking Islam but Islam has attacked us. The God of Islam is not the same God. He's not the son of God of the Christian or Judeo-Christian faith. It's a different God, and I believe it [Islam] is a very evil and wicked religion ... When you read the Koran and you read the verses from the Koran, it instructs the killing of the infidel, for those that are non-Muslim. ~ Franklin Graham
Character Of God quotes by Franklin Graham
You don't count the cost to carry your cross. We must keep advancing the Kingdom of God regardless of the oppositions we face. The enemy only attacks those outside his kingdom. ~ Josephine Akhagbeme
Character Of God quotes by Josephine Akhagbeme
Paul gives us an astonishing understanding of waiting in the New Testament book of Romans, as rendered by Eugene Peterson, 'Waiting does not diminish us, any more than waiting diminishes a pregnant mother. We are enlarged in the waiting. We, of course, don't see what is enlarging us. But the longer we wait, the larger we become, and the more joyful our expectancy.' With such motivation, we can wait as we sense God is indeed with us, and at work within us, as he was with Mary as the child within her grew. ~ Luci Shaw
Character Of God quotes by Luci Shaw
The path which we believe in is the path of love; it has all the goodness of God in it-calmness and kindness. ~ Harbhajan Singh Yogi
Character Of God quotes by Harbhajan Singh Yogi
Regardless of what is going on outside, the Word produces stability inside. ~ Suzanne Eller
Character Of God quotes by Suzanne Eller
The fact of the matter is that when I drink, I am 100 percent certifiably insane. Hopelessly, utterly, undeniably bat shit crazy. I do things that are abhorrent to me; anathema to my nature, my morals, and my upbringing. And once I start, I cannot stop the craziness. It just spirals on and on, ever downward, until I die or hit rock bottom. And even at rock bottom, despite all evidence that I should stop, I will grab a cold beer and a pick ax and keep digging deeper. It's insane. The only way I know to not be crazy is just not to drink. ~ D. Randall Blythe
Character Of God quotes by D. Randall Blythe
Make me chaste and To what excesses will men not go for the sake of a religion in which they believe so little and which they practice so imperfectly! ~ Jean De La Bruyere
Character Of God quotes by Jean De La Bruyere
The characteristic property of hallucinogens, to suspend the boundaries between the experiencing self and the outer world in an ecstatic, emotional experience, makes it posible with their help, and after suitable internal and external perparation ... to evoke a mystical experience according to plan, so to speak ... I see the true importance of LSD in the possibility of providing material aid to meditation aimed at the mystical experience of a deeper, comprehensive reality. Such a use accords entirely with the essence and working character of LSD as a sacred drug. ~ Albert Hofmann
Character Of God quotes by Albert Hofmann
Children of God should not make a general confession by acknowledging their innumerable sins in a vague manner, because such confession does not provide conscience opportunity to do its perfect work. They ought to allow the Holy Spirit through their conscience to point out their sins one by one. Christians must accept its reproach and be willing, according to the mind of the Spirit, to eliminate everything which is contrary to God. ~ Watchman Nee
Character Of God quotes by Watchman Nee
Modern science gives lectures on botany, to show there is no such thing as a flower; on humanity, to show there is no such thing as a man; and on theology, to show there is no such thing as a God. No such thing as a man, but only a mechanism, No such thing as a God, but only a series of forces. ~ John Ruskin
Character Of God quotes by John Ruskin
War happens to people, one by one. That is really all I have to say and it seems to me I have been saying it forever. Unless they are immediate victims, the majority of mankind behaves as if war was an act of God which could not be prevented; or they behave as if war elsewhere was none of their business. It would be a bitter cosmic joke if we destroy ourselves due to atrophy of the imagination. ~ Martha Gellhorn
Character Of God quotes by Martha Gellhorn
The central thesis of Surnaturel, then, is that, neither in patristic nor in medieval theology, and certainly not in Thomas Aquinas, was the hypothesis ever entertained of a purely natural destiny for human beings, something other than the supernatural and eschatological vision of God. There is only this world, the world in which our nature has been created for a supernatural destiny. Historically, there never was a graceless nature, or a world outside the Christian dispensation. This traditional conception of human nature as always destined for grace-given union with God fell apart between attempts, on the one hand, to secure the sheer gratuitousness of the economy of grace over against the naturalist anthropologies of Renaissance humanism and, on the other hand, resistance to what was perceived by Counter-Reformation Catholics as the Protestant doctrine of the total corruption of human nature by original sin. The Catholic theologians, who sought to protect the supernatural by separating it conceptually from the natural, facilitated the development of the humanism which flowered at the Enlightenment into deism, agnosticism and ultimately atheism. The conception of the autonomous individual for which the philosophers of the Age of Reason were most bitterly criticized by devout Catholics was, de Lubac suggested, invented by Catholic theologians. The philosophers which broke free of Christianity, to develop their own naturalist and deist theologies, had their roots in the anti- ~ Fergus Kerr
Character Of God quotes by Fergus Kerr
A lot of people come up here and they thank Jesus for this award. I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus. He didn't help me a bit. If it was up to him, Cesar Millan would be up here with that damn dog. So all I can say is, 'suck it, Jesus! This award is my God now'! ~ Kathy Griffin
Character Of God quotes by Kathy Griffin

"That's what Edward thought."
"Oh, yeah? He a friend of yours?"
"No, Miss Librarian. Just a main character in a wildly popular vampire series. ~ Shannon Delany
Character Of God quotes by Shannon Delany
The real problem is not in the Quran itself, but the accepted element of divine revelation that has enabled successive and rather dodgy regimes to use the Quran as an argument against freedom of speech or thought or freedom of anything. Thats the larger problem because if you walk into the global and deny freedom on the grounds that god didn't predict its evolution as a concept, then you can pretty much read a call for violence into a pingu anime or a winnie the pooh book ~ Steve Merrick
Character Of God quotes by Steve Merrick
The angels would become incarnate if they could, so that they might come to earth to imitate the example and virtues of the Son of God! ~ Vincent De Paul
