The great comprehensive truths written in letters of living light on every page of our history are these: Human happiness has no perfect security but freedom; freedom none but virtue; virtue none but knowledge; and neither freedom nor virtue has any vigor of immortal hope, except in the principles of Christian faith, and in the sanctions of the Christian religion.
      - James H. Aughey

Like the cellar-growing vine is the Christian who lives in the darkness and bondage of fear. But let him go forth, with the liberty of God, into the light of love, and he will be like the plant in the field, healthy, robust, and joyful.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

The purified righteous man has become a coin of the Lord, and has the impress of his King stamped upon him.
      - Pope Clement I (Clemens Romanus) (Saint Clement of Alexandria)

Health is a great blessing--competence obtained by honorable industry is a great blessing--and a great blessing it is to have kind, faithful, and loving friends and relatives; but, that the greatest of all blessings, as it is the most ennobling of all privileges, is to be indeed a Christian.
      - Samuel Taylor Coleridge

A greater absurdity cannot be thought of than a morose, hardhearted, covetous, proud, malicious Christian.
      - Jonathan Edwards

He that will deserve the name of a Christian must be such a man as excelleth through the knowledge of Christ and His doctrine; in modesty and righteousness of mind, in constancy of life, in virtuous fortitude, and in maintaining sincere piety toward the one and the only God, who is all in all.
      - Eusebius of Caesarea ("Father of Ecclesiastical History")

Many there are who, while they bear the name of Christians, are totally unacquainted with the power of their divine religion. But for their crimes the Gospel is in no wise answerable. Christianity is with them a geographical, not a descriptive, appellation.
      - Rev. Frederick William Faber

A Christian in this world is but gold in the ore; at death the pure gold is melted out and separated and the dross cast away and consumed.
      - Rev. John Flavel (2)

A Christian is a man in Christ. "If any man be in Christ." A Christian is a man for Christ. "Glorify God in your body and spirit which are God's."
      - Richard Fuller (1)

Christians are called saints, for their holiness; believers, for their faith; brethren, for their love; disciples, for their knowledge.
      - Thomas Fuller (1)

A Christian is a believer in Jesus. He believes that if he only throws his own lost and sinful soul on the Redeemer, there is in His sacrifice sufficient merit to cancel all his guilt, and in His heart sufficient love to undertake the keeping of his soul for all eternity. He believes that Jesus is a Saviour. He believes that His heart is set on His people's holiness, and that it is only by making them new creatures, pure-minded, kind-hearted, unselfish, devout, that He can fit them for a home and a life like His own, that He can fit them for the occupations and enjoyments of heaven. And believing all this he prays and labors after holiness.
      - James Hamilton

It is more to the honor of a Christian soldier, by faith to overcome the world, than by a monastical vow to retreat from it; and more for the honor of Christ, to serve Him in a city than to serve Him in a cell.
      - Matthew (Mathew) Henry

Christian morality prefers remorse to precede lust, and then lust not to follow.
      - Karl Kraus

Christian life consists of faith and charity.
      - Martin Luther

Being in Christ, it is safe to forget the past; it is possible to be sure of the future; it is possible to be diligent in the present.
      - Alexander Maclaren

It was a deep true thought which the old painters had, when they drew John as likest to his Lord. Love makes us like.
      - Alexander Maclaren

Ordinary human motives will appeal in vain to the ears which have heard the tones of the heavenly music; and all the pomp of life will show poor and tawdry to the sight that has gazed on the vision of the great white throne and the crystal sea.
      - Alexander Maclaren

The sum of the whole matter is this: He who is one in will and heart with God is a Christian. He who loves God is one in will and heart with Him. He who trusts Christ loves God. That is Christianity in its ultimate purpose and result. That is Christianity in its means and working forces. That is Christianity in its starting point and foundation.
      - Alexander Maclaren

He that can apprehend and consider vice with all her baits and seeming pleasures, and yet abstain, and yet distinguish, and yet prefer that which is truly better, he is the true way-faring Christian. I cannot praise a fugitive and cloistered virtue unexercised and unbreathed that never sallies out and sees her adversary, but slinks out of the race, where that immortal garland is to be run for, not without dust and heat.
      - John Milton

The last, best fruit that comes to perfection, even in the kindliest soul, is tenderness toward the hard; forbearance toward the unforbearing; warmth of heart toward the cold; and philanthropy toward the misanthropic.
      - Jean Paul Friedrich Richter (Johann Paul Richter) (used ps. Jean Paul)

Now see what a Christian is, drawn by the hand of Christ. He is a man on whose clear and open brow God has set the stamp of truth; one whose very eye beams bright with honor; in whose very look and bearing you may see freedom, manliness, veracity; a brave man--a noble man--frank, generous, true, with, it may be, many faults; whose freedom may take the form of impetuosity or rashness, but the form of meanness never.
      - Frederick William Robertson

If all were perfect Christians, individuals would do their duty; the people would be obedient to the laws, the magistrates incorrupt, and there would be neither vanity nor luxury in such a state.
      - Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Christ, in that place He hath put you, hath trusted you with a dear pledge, which His own glory, and hath armed you with His sword to keep the pledge, and make a good account of it to God.
      - Samuel Rutherford

There is nothing that will make yon a Christian indeed, but a taste of the sweetness of Christ.
      - Samuel Rutherford

A child of God should be a visible beatitude, for joy and happiness, and a living doxology, for gratitude and adoration.
      - Charles Haddon Spurgeon
