#1. Mormons have to have absurdly high standards. Other people try not to drink to excess. Mormons refuse to drink at all. Other people cut back on their coffee at Lent. Mormons drink neither coffee nor tea, ever, and I know plenty of Mormons who think it is wrong to drink hot chocolate, or herbal tea, or decaffeinated coffee. Or anything that could be mistaken for tea at a casual glance. Or anything coffee-flavored. Or rum-flavored. Or even vanilla extract. - Author: Mette Ivie Harrison
Mormon Beliefs quotes by Mette Ivie Harrison
#2. All discourses and disciplines proceed from commitments and beliefs that are ultimately religious in nature. No scientific discourse (whether natural science or social science) simply discloses to us the facts of reality to which theology must submit; rather, every discourse is, in some sense, religious. The playing field has been leveled. Theology is most persistently postmodern when it rejects a lingering correlational false humility and instead speaks unapologetically from the the primacy of Christian revelation and the church's confessional language. - Author: James K.A. Smith
Mormon Beliefs quotes by James K.A. Smith
#3. [I]t kind of terrified me to imagine myself spending the rest of my life tinkering on the margins of the small arguments. - Author: Lawrence Lessig

Mormon Beliefs quotes by Walter J. Moore
#5. I am half inclined to think we are all ghosts ... it is not only what we have inherited from our fathers and mothers that exists again in us, but all sorts of old dead ideas and all kinds of old dead beliefs and things of that kind. They are not actually alive in us; but there they are dormant all the same, and we can never be rid of them. Whenever I take up a newspaper and read it, I fancy I see ghosts creeping between the lines. There must be ghosts all over the world. They must be as countless as the grains of the sands, it seems to me. And we are so miserably afraid of the light, all of us. - Author: Henrik Ibsen
Mormon Beliefs quotes by Henrik Ibsen
#6. The idea of polytheism is grounded in the view that reality (divine or otherwise) is multiple and diverse ... Polytheism has allowed a multitude of distinct groups to exist more or less in harmony, despite great divergence in beliefs and practices ... - Author: Margot Adler
Mormon Beliefs quotes by Margot Adler
#7. Breckin shrugs. "I'm new here. And if you haven't deducted from my impeccable fashion sense, I think it's safe to say that I'm ... " he leans forward and cups his hand to his mouth in secrecy. "Mormon," he whispers. - Author: Colleen Hoover
Mormon Beliefs quotes by Colleen Hoover
#8. Quilliam will remain a priority for me because its values shape my beliefs and outlook. - Author: Maajid Nawaz
Mormon Beliefs quotes by Maajid Nawaz
#9. That it does not matter what a man believes is a statement heard on every side today ... What he believes tells him what the world is for. How can men who disagree about what the world is for agree about any of the minutiae of daily conduct? The statement really means that it does not matter what a man believes so long as he does not take his beliefs seriously. - Author: Richard M. Weaver
Mormon Beliefs quotes by Richard M. Weaver
#10. That before the Antichrist can be revealed, there will be a falling away, a forsaking, on the part of professing believers. This will not be a time when just a few people abandon their doctrinal beliefs; it will mark a period of major, widespread departure from the faith. In His Olivet discourse, Jesus predicted such a time: "Many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold" (Matthew 24:10-12). - Author: David Jeremiah
Mormon Beliefs quotes by David Jeremiah
#11. I'm a Mormon. I don't do a lot of the off-the-field activities that athletes are known to do. And I guess I've created a world that is unlike the typical world of a professional athlete. - Author: Jeff Kent
Mormon Beliefs quotes by Jeff Kent
#12. It is demonstrable and observable that our morals are based on our earliest spiritual beliefs. Matters of the Mind in no small measure have reflected matters of the Soul. - Author: Neale Donald Walsch
Mormon Beliefs quotes by Neale Donald Walsch
#13. If the box contains a diamond,
I desire to believe that the box contains a diamond;
If the box does not contain a diamond,
I desire to believe that the box does not contain a diamond;
Let me not become attached to beliefs I may not want. - Author: Eliezer Yudkowsky
Mormon Beliefs quotes by Eliezer Yudkowsky
#14. I like good ideas. I don't want just do something for it's own sake to bother people, but if I can bother them with a logical argument about something they have agreed to in society simplistically - like children are sacred, the cult of the child, this cult of professional parenthood, and of course religion, and respect for policemen and the law, and all of these untouchable areas. I like attacking those beliefs, but in with good sound thinking, and an unusual approach. - Author: George Carlin
Mormon Beliefs quotes by George Carlin
#15. the Mormon doctor said, "Sometimes Mr. Smith speaks as a prophet, and sometimes as a mere man. If he gave a wrong opinion respecting the book, he spoke as a mere man." I said, "Whether he spoke as a prophet or as a mere man, he has committed himself, for he has said what is not true. If he spoke as a prophet, therefore, he is a false prophet. If he spoke as a mere man, he cannot be trusted, for he spoke positively and like an oracle respecting that of which he knew nothing. - Author: Grant Palmer
Mormon Beliefs quotes by Grant Palmer
#16. Minerals! The invaders had virtually wiped out our entire race for minerals. But then, who were we to complain, when for centuries elements of mankind had wiped out other races and peoples over oil, land and space, and differing beliefs about the hereafter? It was chilling to think we had anything in common with an alien race implementing genocide, but perhaps they were doing on a galactic scale what we had - at least so far - confined to our own species. In another hundred years, perhaps two-hundred, would we have been exporting our own prejudices across the cosmos? We would never know, now that humanity had been all but erased. - Author: Bobby Underwood
Mormon Beliefs quotes by Bobby Underwood
#17. In novels in general - and also on the television - we do live in a world where bodies is what we are. We do not talk about the spirit or the soul, and there is a sense that we no longer talk about beliefs, either Freudian or Marxist. - Author: A.S. Byatt
Mormon Beliefs quotes by A.S. Byatt
#18. If you take guns away from legal gun owners, then the only people who would have guns would be the bad guys. Even a pacifist would get violent if someone were trying to kill him or her. You would fight for your life, whatever your beliefs. - Author: Bruce Willis
Mormon Beliefs quotes by Bruce Willis
#19. And this is all based on a belief system that we never chose to believe. These beliefs are so strong, that even years later when we are exposed to new concepts and try to make our own decisions, we find that these beliefs still control our lives. Whatever - Author: Miguel Ruiz
Mormon Beliefs quotes by Miguel Ruiz
#20. We create the world that we perceive, not because there is no reality outside our heads, but because we select and edit the reality we see to conform to our beliefs about what sort of world we live in. The man who believes that the resources of the world are infinite, for example, or that if something is good for you then the more of it the better, will not be able to see his errors, because he will not look for evidence of them. For a man to change the basic beliefs that determine his perception - his epistemological premises - he must first become aware that reality is not necessarily as he believes it to be. Sometimes the dissonance between reality and false beliefs reaches a point when it becomes impossible to avoid the awareness that the world no longer makes sense. Only then is it possible for the mind to consider radically different ideas and perceptions. - Author: Gregory Bateson
Mormon Beliefs quotes by Gregory Bateson
#21. My methods produce lasting behavioral change without unpleasant consequences, because the change does not come from an effort of will. It comes from examining your deep-rooted beliefs of who you are and how the world functions. As you examine these beliefs and make changes in them, you literally become a different person. - Author: Srikumar Rao
Mormon Beliefs quotes by Srikumar Rao
#22. For individuals to feel justified in doing horrible things to other people, they must feel an unwavering certainty in their own righteousness, in their own beliefs and deservedness. ...Evil people never believe that they are evil, rather, they believe that everyone else is evil. - Author: Mark Manson
Mormon Beliefs quotes by Mark Manson
#23. I was doing research on the Mormon handcart tragedy when I came across information about Brigham Young sending out missions to the Indians in 1855. - Author: David Roberts
Mormon Beliefs quotes by David Roberts
#24. Who you are in public is a test of your conviction; who you are in private, integrity. - Author: Criss Jami
Mormon Beliefs quotes by Criss Jami
#25. Without being aware of it, you take many things as being your identity: your body, your race, your beliefs, your thoughts. - Author: Jack Kornfield
Mormon Beliefs quotes by Jack Kornfield
#26. A statement that is repugnant to one's beliefs can be as true as one that is pleasurable. - Author: Taylor Caldwell
Mormon Beliefs quotes by Taylor Caldwell
#27. But American Christians are going to have to come to terms with the brute fact that we live in a culture, one in which our beliefs make increasingly little sense. We speak a language that the world more and more either cannot hear or finds offensive to its ears. - Author: Rod Dreher
Mormon Beliefs quotes by Rod Dreher
#28. As a society, you were unwilling to reflect upon the shared pain that united you with those who attacked you. You retreated into myths of your own difference, assumptions of your own superiority. And you acted out these beliefs on the stage of the world, so that the entire planet was rocked by the repercussions of your tantrums, not least my family, now facing war thousands of miles away. - Author: Mohsin Hamid
Mormon Beliefs quotes by Mohsin Hamid

Mormon Beliefs quotes by Kathryn Schulz
#31. I couldn't stop thinking about the body, what a hard fact it was.
That philosopher who said we think, therefore we are, should have
spent an hour in the maternity ward of Waite Memorial Hospital. He'd
have had to change his whole philosophy.
The mind was so thin, barely a spiderweb, with all its fine
thoughts, aspirations, and beliefs in its own importance. Watch how
easily it unravels, evaporates under the first lick of pain. - Author: Janet Fitch
Mormon Beliefs quotes by Janet Fitch
