#1. The foundation of true holiness and true Christian worship is the doctrine of the gospel, what we are to believe. So when Christian doctrine is neglected, forsaken, or corrupted, true holiness and worship will also be neglected, forsaken, and corrupted. - Author: John Owen
Christian Doctrine quotes by John Owen
#2. Altho' I rarely waste time in reading on theological subjects, as mangled by our Pseudo-Christians, yet I can readily suppose Basanistos may be amusing. Ridicule is the only weapon which can be used against unintelligible propositions. Ideas must be distinct before reason can act upon them; and no man ever had a distinct idea of the trinity. It is mere Abracadabra of the mountebanks calling themselves the priests of Jesus. If it could be understood it would not answer their purpose. Their security is in their faculty of shedding darkness, like the scuttlefish, thro' the element in which they move, and making it impenetrable to the eye of a pursuing enemy, and there they will skulk.
[Letter to Francis Adrian Van der Kemp on 30 July 1810 denouncing the Christian doctrine of the Trinity] - Author: Thomas Jefferson
Christian Doctrine quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#3. The Christian "doctrines" are translations into our concepts and ideas of that which God has already expressed in language more adequate, namely the actual incarnation, crucifixion, and resurrection - Author: C.S. Lewis
Christian Doctrine quotes by C.S. Lewis
#4. The Christian religion and National Socialist doctrines are not compatible. - Author: Martin Bormann
Christian Doctrine quotes by Martin Bormann
#5. You would like to know how I behave when I am experiencing pain, not writing books about it. You need not guess, for I will tell you; I am a great coward... If I knew any way of escape I would crawl through sewers to find it. But what is the good of telling you about my feelings? You know them already; they are the same as yours. I am not arguing that pain is not painful. Pain hurts. That is what the word means. I am only trying to show that the old Christian doctrine of being made 'perfect through suffering' is not incredible. To prove it palatable is beyond my design. - Author: C.S. Lewis
Christian Doctrine quotes by C.S. Lewis
#6. And this is also what he takes Christian doctrine, in all its complexity, to be centrally about, that is, teaching an attitude rather than a set of propositions. Call it joyous openness to life. What's not relevant about that? - Author: George Pattison
Christian Doctrine quotes by George Pattison
#7. To the Christian doctrine of the infinite significance of the individual human soul and of personal responsibility, I oppose with icy clarity the saving doctrine of the nothingness and insignificance of the individual human being, and of his continued existence in the visible immortality of the nation. - Author: Adolf Hitler
Christian Doctrine quotes by Adolf Hitler
#8. He that denies any of the doctrines that Christ has delivered, to be true, denies him to be sent from God, and consequently to be the Messiah; and so ceases to be a Christian. - Author: John Locke
Christian Doctrine quotes by John Locke
#9. I am a Christian in the only sense in which He wished anyone to be: sincerely attached to His doctrines in preference to all others. - Author: Thomas Jefferson
Christian Doctrine quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#10. For where this Self-love rules, Divines will study more to tune the Scriptures to their opinion, than their opinions to Scripture, and by head and shoulders drag the Fundamental Articles of the Christian Faith, to the supporting of their doctrines not Fundamental. - Author: John Davenant
Christian Doctrine quotes by John Davenant
#11. The Christian motto 'All men are brothers', however, also means that those who do not accept brotherhood are not men. - Author: Slavoj Zizek
Christian Doctrine quotes by Slavoj Zizek
#12. There is an old Scholastic distinction between religious treatises written "de Deo uno" and those written "de Deo trino": between, that is, those that are "about the one God" known to persons of various faiths and philosophies and those that are "about the Trinitarian God" of Christian doctrine. - Author: David Bentley Hart
Christian Doctrine quotes by David Bentley Hart
#13. GERTRUDE
Gertrude Appleman, 1901-1976

God is all-knowing, all-present, and almighty.

--A Catechism of Christian Doctrine

I wish that all the people
who peddle God
could watch my mother die:
could see the skin and
gristle weighing only
seventy-nine, every stubborn
pound of flesh a small
death.

I wish the people who peddle God
could see her young,
lovely in gardens and
beautiful in kitchens, and could watch
the hand of God slowly
twisting her knees and fingers
till they gnarled and knotted, settling in
for thirty years of pain.

I wish the people who peddle God
could see the lightning
of His cancer stabbing
her, that small frame
tensing at every shock,
her sweet contralto scratchy with
the Lord's infection: Philip,
I want to die.

I wish I had them gathered round,
those preachers, popes, rabbis,
imams, priests – every
pious shill on God's payroll – and I
would pull the sheets from my mother's brittle body,
and they would fall on their knees at her bedside
to be forgiven all their
faith. - Author: Philip Appleman
Christian Doctrine quotes by Philip Appleman
#14. Why is it that we have a tendency to lazily assume other Christians have been the kind of dedicated, motivated, responsible, knowledgeable experts on Bible doctrines that we have never cared enough to become? - Author: Len Smith
Christian Doctrine quotes by Len Smith
#15. What is a disciple? It is not a mindless follower. A disciple is a student.
When Paul prohibits women teaching men, he (in the same breath) requires Christian women to be students of the Word "Let a woman learn ... " (1 Tim 2:11).
Because biblical learning is required of us, we ought not to be afraid of it. We must overcome our ignorance! We ought to read good, solid books on Christian doctrine. It is good for us! We must cultivate a taste for books that will build s up in the faith- not take us to fantasy land. Just read a page or two at a time if need be, and never at the expense of your Bible reading. - Author: Nancy Wilson
Christian Doctrine quotes by Nancy Wilson
#16. At one level Great Britain at the beginning of the 18th century was like the Christian doctrine of the Trinity, both three and one, and altogether something of a mystery. - Author: Linda Colley
Christian Doctrine quotes by Linda Colley
#17. Each person is responsible only for his or her own sins. Even the Christian doctrine of 'original sin' does not mean that humans are punished for the sin of the first human pair but, rather, that humans seem inevitably to copy the sin of the first human pair. - Author: David Novak
Christian Doctrine quotes by David Novak
#18. Neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation can separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus, our Lord.
Rom 8 - Author: Anonymous
Christian Doctrine quotes by Anonymous
#19. The prohibition on promoting a pawn to a queen while the original queen was still on the board was an attempt to preserve the uniqueness of the king's wife, his only permissible conjugal mate according to Christian doctrine. The Arabic game did not have to face that problem because a Muslim ruler could theoretically have as many viziers as he wanted. The idea of multiple queens on the chessboard proved so anxiety-making for Europeans that it remained a subject of contention for centuries to come. - Author: Marilyn Yalom
Christian Doctrine quotes by Marilyn Yalom
#20. He believes in No-God, and he worships him, said a colleague of mine of a student who was manifesting a fine atheistic ardor; and the more fervent opponents of Christian doctrine have often enough shown a temper which, psychologically considered, is indistinguishable from religious zeal. - Author: William James
Christian Doctrine quotes by William James
#21. As the word 'tolerance' grows in popularity, tolerance for pure, unadulterated Christian doctrine appears to be shrinking. - Author: Monica Johnson
Christian Doctrine quotes by Monica Johnson
#22. The people, especially in the villages, know nothing at all of Christian doctrine; and many pastors are sadly unfit and incompetent to teach. Yet all are called Christians, have been baptized, and enjoy the use of the Sacrament, although they know neither the Lord's Prayer, nor the Creed, nor the Ten Commandments ... - Author: Martin Luther
Christian Doctrine quotes by Martin Luther
#23. When the institutional church gives attention to cultural engagement - the fourth and final ministry front - it does so primarily by discipling a community of believers who work as the church organic. By teaching the Christian doctrine of vocation, the goodness of creation, the importance of culture, and the practice of Sabbath, it should be inspiring and encouraging its members to go into the various channels of culture. - Author: Timothy Keller
Christian Doctrine quotes by Timothy Keller
#24. If it hasn't already done so, the church ... must recognize that it lives in a pagan society; it must seek for values and norms not shared by society. In short, it will either recover the Christian doctrine of nonconformity or cease to have any authentic Christian voice. - Author: Doris Janzen Longacre
Christian Doctrine quotes by Doris Janzen Longacre
#25. Union with Christ is right at the center of the Christian doctrine of salvation. The whole of our relationship with God can be summed up in such terms. John Calvin agreed when he wrote: "For we await salvation from him not because he appears to us afar off, but because he makes us, ingrafted into his body, participants not only in all his benefits but also in himself."1 - Author: Robert Letham
Christian Doctrine quotes by Robert Letham
#26. I find it hard to swallow the notion that the world is improved by extra suffering. And that goes for a lot of Christian doctrine. Jones commits a crime, so you expiate the evil by nailing Smith to a cross and it's all better. - John Leslie - Author: Jim Holt
Christian Doctrine quotes by Jim Holt
#27. We can no longer speak of a bourne from which no traveler e'er returns. The middle wall of partition has been broken down and the boundary become but an invisible line by the resurrection of Christ. That He who died has been raised again and ever lives in the form of a complete humanity is the fundamental fact in the revelation of the Christian doctrine of immortality. - Author: B. B. Warfield
Christian Doctrine quotes by B. B. Warfield
#28. In two areas above all others the Christian demonstration of love and communication stands clear: in the area of the Christian couple and their children; and in the personal relationships of Christians in the church. If there is no demonstration in these two places, on the personal level, the world can conclude that orthodox Christian doctrine is nothing but dead, cold words. - Author: Francis Schaeffer
Christian Doctrine quotes by Francis Schaeffer
#29. Saturday, May 22d.---It is now Saturday night, and I must prepare for the holy Sabbath. My Bible and Confession of Faith are my traveling companions, and precious friends have they been to me. I bless God for that glorious summary of Christian doctrine contained in our noble standards. It has cheered my soul in many a dark hour, and sustained me in many a desponding moment. I love to read it, and ponder carefully each proof text as I pass along. - Author: James Henley Thornwell
Christian Doctrine quotes by James Henley Thornwell
#30. That the death of God involves the death of Man, along with the birth of a new form of humanity, is orthodox Christian doctrine, a fact of which Nietzsche seems not to have been aware. - Author: Terry Eagleton
Christian Doctrine quotes by Terry Eagleton
#31. I am convinced that there is an urgent need in the church today for much greater understanding of Christian doctrine, or systematic theology. Not only pastors and teachers need to understand theology in greater depth -- the WHOLE CHURCH does as well. One day by God's grace we may have churches full of Christians who can discuss, apply and LIVE the doctrinal teachings of the Bible as readily as they can discuss the details of their own jobs or hobbies - or the fortunes of their favorite sports team or television program. - Author: Wayne A. Grudem
Christian Doctrine quotes by Wayne A. Grudem
#32. Christians and Jews hold in common one theological basis for hospitality: Creation. Creation is the ultimate expression of God's hospitality to His creatures. In the words of on rabbi, everything God created is a "manifestation of His kindness. [The] world is one big hospitality inn." As Church historian Amy Oden has put it, "God offers hospitality to all humanity ... by establishing a home.. for all." To invite people into our homes is to respond with gratitude to the God who made a home for us.
In the Christian doctrine of the Trinity, we find another resource for hospitality. The trinity shows God in relationships with Himself. our Three-in-one God has welcomed us into Himself and invited us to participate in divine life. And so the invitation that we as Christians extend to one another is not simply an invitation into our homes or to our tables; what we ask of other people it that hey enter into our lives. - Author: Lauren F. Winner
Christian Doctrine quotes by Lauren F. Winner
#33. [F]rom the perspective of outsiders to the Christian tradition, Paul has sometimes been ridiculed for having abandoned monotheism. Such ridicule is part of a more general theological critique, advanced for centuries by Muslims and Jews, against the Christian doctrine of the incarnation, namely that God became human, and the notion of a triune God, namely that God is three-in-one, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. To reduce a long tradition of theological dialogue and debate to one sentence, Muslims and Jews believe that devotion to Christ renders the Christian claim to monotheism misguided at best and idolatry at worst, while Christians see no contradiction between their affirmation of the oneness of God and the doctrine of the Trinity.

But, to once again reiterate a point made several times already in this book, Christianity does not yet exist as an independent religious system in Paul's time. Paul is not operating with the doctrine of the incarnation as it was defined in the Council of Nicea (CE 325) or the Christian doctrine of the Trinity as it was hammered out in the Council of Chalcedon (CE 451). At the same time, Paul's letters already reflect a surprisingly high Christology that appears to anticipate later orthodox views. That is to say, Paul's letters manifest a belief in Jesus' divinity that came to characterize the full-out identification between Jesus and God of later official Christian doctrine. Jesus is clearly a divine figure of unique status in Paul's le - Author: Pamela Eisenbaum
Christian Doctrine quotes by Pamela Eisenbaum
#34. It. It is not intellectual knowledge about God that quenches man's ancient heart-thirst, but the very Person and Presence of God Himself. These come to us through Christian doctrine, but they are more than doctrine. Christian truth is designed to lead us to God, not to serve as a substitute for God. - Author: A.W. Tozer
Christian Doctrine quotes by A.W. Tozer
#35. For a Man cannot believe a Miracle without relying upon Sense, nor Transubstantiation without renouncing it. So that never were any two things so ill coupled together as the Doctrine of Christianity and that of Transubstantiation, because they draw several ways, and are ready to strangle one another: For the main Evidence of the Christian Doctrine, which is Miracles, is resolved into the certainty of Sense, but this Evidence is clear and point blank against Transubstantiation. - Author: John Tillotson
Christian Doctrine quotes by John Tillotson
#36. Humanism is not science, but religion - the post-Christian faith that humans can make a world better than any in which they have so far lived. In pre-Christian Europe is was taken for granted that the future would be like the past. Knowledge and invention might advance, but ethics would remain much the same. History was a series of cycles, with no overall meaning.
Against this pagan view, Christians understood history as a story of sin and redemption. Humanism is the transformation of this Christian doctrine of salvation into a project of universal human emancipation. The idea of progress is a secular version of the Christian belief in providence. That is why among the ancient pagans it was unknown. - Author: John N. Gray
Christian Doctrine quotes by John N. Gray
#37. One area of the Book of Mormon that does bother some is what they see as anachronistic doctrine; that the Book of Mormon has Christian doctrine prior to the coming of Christ; that it has seemingly New Testament doctrines appearing centuries before Jesus arrives, and it seems to be representing a form of Christianity existing in the New World where there doesn't seem to be much evidence of that archaeologically. Christianity is invisible in the New World prior to the coming of Columbus, and so those things seem like clear anachronisms to people looking at it in that way. - Author: Daniel C. Peterson
Christian Doctrine quotes by Daniel C. Peterson
#38. When a man who accepts the Christian doctrine lives unworthily of it, it is much clearer to say he is a bad Christian than to say he is not a Christian. - Author: Blaise Pascal
Christian Doctrine quotes by Blaise Pascal
#39. Later orthodox theologians would have found this view completely inadequate. In stressing that the Father was "greater" than the Son, Tertullian articulated a view that would later be deemed a heresy. Theology, in these early years of the formation of Christian doctrine, could not stand still. It progressed and got more complicated, sophisticated, and refined as time went on. - Author: Bart D. Ehrman
Christian Doctrine quotes by Bart D. Ehrman
#40. The true ground of most men's prejudice against the Christian doctrine is because they have no mind to obey it. - Author: John Tillotson
Christian Doctrine quotes by John Tillotson
#41. The first theological insight I learned from Gregory of Nyssa - and I suspect the last to which I shall cling when all others fall away - is that the Christian doctrine of creatio ex nihilo is not merely a cosmological or metaphysical claim, but also an eschatological claim about the world's relation to God, and hence a moral claim about the nature of God in himself. In the end of all things is their beginning, and only from the perspective of the end can one know what they are, why they have been made, and who the God is who has called them forth from nothingness.

(from Radical Orthodoxy 3.1 (2015): 1-17) - Author: David Bentley Hart
Christian Doctrine quotes by David Bentley Hart
#42. The fate of Susan Pevensie indicates some sort of crazed, deranged Manichaeism. Here's a simple test: What is the greatest Christian virtue? Well, it's charity, isn't it? It's love. If somebody who knew nothing about Christian doctrine, and who had been told that Lewis was a great Christian teacher, read all the way through those books, would he get that message? No. - Author: Philip Pullman
Christian Doctrine quotes by Philip Pullman
#43. I have never united myself to any church because I found difficulty in giving my assent without mental reservation to the long, complicated statements of Christian doctrine which characterize the articles of belief and the usual confession of faith. - Author: Abraham Lincoln
Christian Doctrine quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#44. I realized that my truest passion was for helping people change through faith in a higher power. That meant, for me, belonging to the church. Using my abilities to bring Christian doctrine to a postmodern world. - Author: James McGreevey
Christian Doctrine quotes by James McGreevey
#45. Precision in matters of Christian doctrine is a hallmark of confessional Lutheranism, all for the sake of the Gospel. - Author: C.F.W. Walther
Christian Doctrine quotes by C.F.W. Walther
#46. Since Thami had the Arab's utter incomprehension of the meaning of pornography, he imagined that the police had placed the ban on obscene films because these infringed upon Christian doctrine at certain specific points, in which case any Christian might be expected to show interest, if only to disapprove. - Author: Paul Bowles
Christian Doctrine quotes by Paul Bowles
#47. . The whole idea of heaven and hell is a perfect illustration of just how the core of Christian doctrine is antithetical to reason, rationality and even life. It elevates ignorance and non-productivity and suppresses creative and innovative thought. One competent scientist is worth more than a thousand evangelists. - Author: Al Stefanelli
Christian Doctrine quotes by Al Stefanelli
#48. The guiding factor for the development of Christian doctrine is the Bible itself! The text of Scripture provides the grounds and, most important, the limits for this development over time. Rather than bringing in outside influences (such as tradition), we recognize that no one has ever plumbed the depths of God's revelation contained in Scripture; no one has ever come close to exhausting what is to be found in its pages. Therefore, real development of Christian doctrine is simply our ever-increasing understanding of the Word. It is a delving deeper and deeper into the truths of the Word. - Author: James R. White
Christian Doctrine quotes by James R. White
#49. „Hitler", wrote Herman Rauschning in 1939, „ has a deep respect for the Catholic church and the Jesuit order, not because of their Christian doctrine, but because of the ´machinery they have elaborated and controlled, their hierarchical system, their extremely clever tactics, their knowledge of human nature and their wise use of human weaknesses in ruling over believers. - Author: Aldous Huxley
Christian Doctrine quotes by Aldous Huxley
#50. One can understand nothing of Christ without the mystery of the Trinity, nothing of the Church without faith in the divinity and humanity of Christ, nothing of the sacraments without the bridal mystery between Christian life without Christian faith. Thus, the present sermons revolve around the same center
the inexhaustible mystery of the one indivisible faith. - Author: Hans Urs Von Balthasar
Christian Doctrine quotes by Hans Urs Von Balthasar
#51. Don't canonize me too soon. I'm perfectly capable of fathering a child. - Author: Francis Of Assisi
Christian Doctrine quotes by Francis Of Assisi
#52. You have the capacity to pursue your dreams. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Christian Doctrine quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#53. If you're going to do Shakespeare, do Shakespeare. There's a reason why he's been performed for hundreds of years. His words affect people on a very deep level. He's the true humanist. That all comes through his text, his words. - Author: Christian Camargo
Christian Doctrine quotes by Christian Camargo
#54. The doctrine stating signs and wonders are no longer needed because we have the Bible was created by people who hadn't seen God's power and needed an explanation to justify their own powerless churches. - Author: Bill Johnson
Christian Doctrine quotes by Bill Johnson
#55. Whatever it means to be a Christian, it at least involves the discovery of friends you did not know you had. - Author: Stanley Hauerwas
Christian Doctrine quotes by Stanley Hauerwas
#56. In all, I was in 16 movies, including 'The Bishop's Wife' with Cary Grant, Loretta Young and David Niven; I was in 'Rio Grande' with John Wayne, 'Albuquerque' with Randall Scott, 'Blue Skies' with Bing Crosby and 'Hans Christian Anderson' with Danny Kaye. - Author: Karolyn Grimes
Christian Doctrine quotes by Karolyn Grimes
#57. I hate the whole concept of comfort! - Author: Christian Louboutin
Christian Doctrine quotes by Christian Louboutin
#58. God is His own motive. His love is not drawn out by our loveableness, but wells up, like an artesian spring, from the depths of His nature. - Author: Alexander MacLaren
Christian Doctrine quotes by Alexander MacLaren
#59. We as Americans are the wealthiest Christians who ever walked on the face of the earth. We are the most protected Christians that ever walked on the face of the earth, and yet we are the emptiest Christians who ever walked on the face of the earth. - Author: Paul Washer
Christian Doctrine quotes by Paul Washer
#60. We shall not rest until we have rooted out Christianity . - Author: Heinrich Himmler
Christian Doctrine quotes by Heinrich Himmler
#61. So in a man's mind, he appraises, negotiates, defines, delineates, weighs the information, and that includes God. As you can see, this is a relationship of management, not trust. You don't trust things you can manage, you manage them. And so, God as information is managed and no relationship of trust is fostered. - Author: Geoffrey Wood
Christian Doctrine quotes by Geoffrey Wood
#62. And once their imaginations are liberated, they begin glimpse the grand interconnectedness of all things. Eternity begins to peek out from behind the everyday things and they see the trappings of any earthly moment as the stage and props for Heaven to reveal itself. There is now nothing ordinary. Everything is being used and spun out for His vast scheme and in His eternal economy, nothing is wasted. Suddenly, all the myriad moments and minutiae of a lifetime show their orchestration - there was nothing that did not lead to this! They look over all their time to find that His redemption has always been rushing, swooping, swerving through their experience, racing to and fro to intervene and infuse Grace. - Author: Geoffrey Wood
Christian Doctrine quotes by Geoffrey Wood
#63. I want to see Toby Maguire fight Christian Bale. - Author: Artie Lange
Christian Doctrine quotes by Artie Lange
#64. The Christian leader cannot simply be persons who have well informed opinions about the burning issues of our time. - Author: Henri J.M. Nouwen
Christian Doctrine quotes by Henri J.M. Nouwen
#65. Your heart of devotion and obedience is not in vain. Who knows but God how many people have come near to you and were forever changed simply by the fragrance of his love in you? Who knows but God if he will put you before kings and leaders to speak the truth, redirecting the future of nations? Who knows when that small crack in the dam of our enemy's plans will give way and God's glory will truly cover the earth as the sea? Do not become distracted or discouraged by the death around you. Death must always give way when the life of Christ enters the picture. - Author: Amy Layne Litzelman
Christian Doctrine quotes by Amy Layne Litzelman
#66. If you make a great deal of Christ, He will make a great deal of you; but if you make but a little of Christ, Christ will make but a little of you. - Author: R.A. Torrey
Christian Doctrine quotes by R.A. Torrey
#67. I would not dare so dishonor my Creator's name by attaching it to this filthy book. - Author: Thomas Paine
Christian Doctrine quotes by Thomas Paine
#68. Take a guy who can walk on water, who can raise people from the dead, who can look at you and tell you what you had for breakfast ... if a guy like that can't find twelve trustworthy mates, who can? Stop at eleven and call it done, that's the moral of that story. - Author: Liam Perrin
Christian Doctrine quotes by Liam Perrin
#69. For it is beyond doubt that there is nothing which more shocks our reason than to say that the sin of the first man has rendered guilty those, who, being so removed from this source, seem incapable of participation in it. This transmission does not only seem to us impossible, it seems also very unjust. For what is more contrary to the rules of our miserable justice than to damn eternally an infant incapable of will, for a sin wherein he seems to have so little a share, that it was committed six thousand years before he was in existence? Certainly nothing offends us more rudely than this doctrine; and yet, without this mystery, the most incomprehensible of all, we are incomprehensible to ourselves. The knot of our condition takes its twists and turns in this abyss, so that man is more inconceivable without this mystery than this mystery is inconceivable to man. - Author: Blaise Pascal
Christian Doctrine quotes by Blaise Pascal
#70. Sin grieves God. We must not down-play the seriousness of it in the life of a believer. But we must come to terms with the fact that God's Grace is GREATER THAN ALL OUR SINS. Repentance is one of the Christian's highest privileges. A repentant Christian focuses on God's mercy and God's grace. Any moment in our lives when we bask in God's mercy and grace is our highest moment. Higher than when we feel smug in our decent performance and cannot think of anything we need to confess. - Author: Jerry Bridges
Christian Doctrine quotes by Jerry Bridges
#71. Clearly, it is time we learned to meet our emotional needs without embracing the preposterous. We must find ways to invoke the power of ritual and to mark those transitions in every human life that demand profundity - birth, marriage, death - without lying to ourselves about the nature of reality. Only then will the practice of raising our children to believe that they are Christian, Muslim, or Jewish be widely recognized as the ludicrous obscenity that it is. And only then will we stand a chance of healing the deepest and most dangerous fractures in our world. - Author: Sam Harris
Christian Doctrine quotes by Sam Harris
#72. My own doctrine of organization is that any body of people coming together for a purpose (whatever it may be) should consist of persons wholly wedded to said purpose and should consist of nobody else. If the purpose be Cannibalism (preference for Ham a la Capitalism) then nobody but a Cannibal should be admitted. There should be plenty of discussion and disagreement as to how and the means but none whatever as to ends. - Author: Benton MacKaye
Christian Doctrine quotes by Benton MacKaye
#73. There's a very secret plan. And it's a plan that nobody's going to tell you, 'Well, we want to diminish Christian philosophy in the U.S.A. because we want X, Y, and Z.' They'll never ever say that. But I'm kind of surprised they went after Christmas because it's such an emotional issue. - Author: Bill O'Reilly
Christian Doctrine quotes by Bill O'Reilly
#74. Real decisions are not something we can pick up without taking time to hunt for them. - Author: Jason E. Royle
Christian Doctrine quotes by Jason E. Royle
#75. I think the skin revolution for women, I will call it, really all started with Mariah Carey. Madonna was pretty risqué too, but she was pretty much always known as a "bad girl." Mariah was a good girl, supposedly Christian, turning very bad, in the late 90's. So then, all the other little girls and teens and women across America thought it would be ok for them to "come out" too essentially, or flaunt whatever they had. Modesty went completely out the window for many women, starting in the late 90's. - Author: Lisa Bedrick
Christian Doctrine quotes by Lisa Bedrick
#76. Van was feeding Christian as we walked in the door. I shielded my hands in front of my face to prevent from seeing her bare breast. "God damn woman, put that tit away!"

"I'm feeding my daughter. You want another taste?"

I started gagging immediately just thinking about how bad that shit tasted. "Hell no! I would rather eat dog shit. - Author: Jennifer Foor
Christian Doctrine quotes by Jennifer Foor
#77. Things will be very bad for Latin America. You only have to consider the ambitions and the doctrines of the empire, which regards this region as its backyard. - Author: Jose Saramago
Christian Doctrine quotes by Jose Saramago
#78. Every child ought to be educated. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Christian Doctrine quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#79. My belief as a Christian is when we receive Christ as salvation, that that gives us a guarantee for Heaven. - Author: Joel Osteen
Christian Doctrine quotes by Joel Osteen
#80. The Christian never works toward victory, he always works FROM victory. - Author: Henry Blackaby
Christian Doctrine quotes by Henry Blackaby
#81. Jesus himself provides the measuring stick by which we may know whether a teacher or practitioner of the Christian faith is genuine or fraudulent. "You shall know them by their fruit, - Author: Brian Tubbs
Christian Doctrine quotes by Brian Tubbs
#82. My father was a great example of a strong and good man and Christian man, and my mother taught all my six sisters how to be young ladies and mothers and how to take care of your family. And so I think they were - they still are - great examples for all of us to their kids and to the world, too. - Author: Magic Johnson
Christian Doctrine quotes by Magic Johnson
#83. Beauty can afford to laugh at distinctions: it is itself the greatest distinction. - Author: Christian Nestell Bovee
Christian Doctrine quotes by Christian Nestell Bovee
#84. The Christian gospel is rooted in langauge: God spoke a creation into being; our Savrior was the Word made flesh. The poet is the person who uses words not primarily to convey information but to make a relationship, shape beauty, form truth…

Isn't it odd that pastors, who are responsible for interpreting the Scriptures, so much of which come in the form of poetry, have so little interest in poetry? … Words create. God's word creates; our words can participate in creation." - Author: Eugene H. Peterson
Christian Doctrine quotes by Eugene H. Peterson
#85. There is no plateau in the Christian life. We are either growing closer to Christ's likeness or we are falling away. - Author: Aimee Byrd
Christian Doctrine quotes by Aimee Byrd
#86. If the Atonement is the foundation of our faith (and it is), then no one should be content with a casual acquaintance of this doctrine. Instead, the Atonement should be paramount in our intellectual and spiritual pursuits. - Author: Tad R. Callister
Christian Doctrine quotes by Tad R. Callister
#87. The Lord shall be your comfort in times of distress. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Christian Doctrine quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#88. Jesus Christ of Nazareth remains our solid Rock. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Christian Doctrine quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#89. God's genius is as wide as the cosmos, while by comparison our intelligence can find room on the head of a pin. - Author: Craig D. Lounsbrough
Christian Doctrine quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#90. She sat silent, looking straight ahead. What did he care about the hot sun on her head? What did she care? Nothing worse could possibly happen to her. - Author: Janette Oke
Christian Doctrine quotes by Janette Oke
#91. It is a strange thing how sometimes merely to talk honestly of God, even if it is only to articulate our feelings of separation and confusion, can bring peace to our spirits. You thought you were unhappy because this or that was off in your relationship, this or that was wrong in your job, but the reality is that your sadness stemmed from your aversion to, your stalwart avoidance of, God. The other problems may very well be true, and you will have to address them, but what you feel when releasing yourself to speak of the deepest needs of your spirit is the fact that no other needs could be spoken of outside of that context. You cannot work on the structure of your life if the ground of your being in unsure. - Author: Christian Wiman
