The other world is as to this like the east to the west. We cannot approach the one without turning away from the other.
      - Abd-el-Kader (Kadir)

A few persons of an odious and despised country could not have filled the world with believers, had they not shown undoubted credentials from the divine person who sent them on such a message.
      - Joseph Addison

It happened very providentially, to the honor of the Christian religion, that it did not take its rise in the dark illiterate ages of the world, but at a time when arts and sciences were at their height.
      - Joseph Addison

Now, the whole world hears
  Or shall hear,--surely shall hear, at the last,
    Though men delay, and doubt, and faint, and fail,--
      That promise faithful:--"Fear not, little flock!
        It is your Father's will and joy, to give
          To you, the Kingdom"!
      - Matthew Arnold

The distinction between Christianity and all other systems of religion consists largely in this, that in these others men are found seeking after God, while Christianity is God seeking after man.
      - Thomas Arnold

Our Christianity is a name, a shadow, unless, we resemble Him who, being the incarnate God, was incarnate goodness.
      - James H. Aughey

Our religion is not Christianity so much as Christ. Our gospel is the knowledge, not of a system, but the saving knowledge of a personal Saviour.
      - James H. Aughey

Where science speaks of improvement, Christianity speaks of renovation; where science speaks of development, Christianity speaks of sanctification; where science of progress, Christianity speaks of perfection.
      - James H. Aughey

Christianity is not a voice in the wilderness, but a life in the world. It is not an idea in the air, but feet on the ground, going God's way. It is not an exotic to be kept under glass, but a hardy plant to bear twelve manner of fruits in all kinds of weather. Fidelity to duty is its root and branch. Nothing we can say to the Lord, no calling Him by great or dear names, can take the place of the plain doing of His will. We may cry out about the beauty of eating bread with Him in His kingdom, but it is wasted breath and a rootless hope, unless we plow and plant in His kingdom here and now. To remember Him at His table and to forget Him at ours, is to have invested in bad securities. There is no substitute for plain, every-day goodness.
      - Maltbie Davenport Babcock

Christianity may produce agitation, anger, tumult as at Ephesus; but the diffusion of the pure gospel of Christ, and the establishment of the institutions of honesty and virtue, at whatever cost, is a blessing to mankind.
      - Albert Barnes

A Christianity which will not help those who are struggling from the bottom to the top of society needs another Christ to die for it.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

Ordinarily rivers run small at the beginning, grow broader and broader as they proceed, and become widest and deepest at the point, where they enter the sea. It is such rivers that the Christian's life is like. But the life of the mere worldly man is like those rivers in Southern Africa, which, proceeding from mountain freshets, are broad and deep at the beginning, and grow narrower and more shallow as they advance. They waster themselves by soaking into the sands, and at last they die out entirely. The farther they run the less there is of them.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Almost thou persuadest me to be a Christian.
      - Bible, Acts (ch. XXVI, v. 28)

No religion ever appeared in the world whose natural tendency was so much directed to promote the peace and happiness of mankind. It makes right reason a law in every possible definition of the word. And therefore, even supposing it to have been purely a human invention, it had been the most amiable and the most useful invention that was ever imposed on mankind for their good.
      - 1st Viscount Bolingbroke, Henry St. John

It looks like the Monroe Doctrine now supercedes the Ten Commandments amongst Fundamentalist Evangelical Christians.
      - John Bonnano

Christian love, which applies to all, even to one's enemies, is the worst adversary of Communism.
      - Nikolai Ivanovich Bukharin,
        in Pravda, March 30 1934

Nature never gives to a living thing capacities not particularly meant for its benefit and use. If Nature gives to us capacities to believe that we have a Creator whom we never saw, of whom we have no direct proof, who is kind and good and tender beyond all that we know of kindness and goodness and tenderness on earth, it is because the endowment of capacities to conceive a Being must be for our benefit and use; it would not be for our benefit and use if it were a lie.
      - Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Ours is a religion jealous in its demands, but how infinitely prodigal in its gifts! It troubles you for an hour, it repays you by immortality.
      - Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

The relations of Christians to each other are like the several flowers in a garden that have upon each the dew of heaven, which, being shaken by the wind, they let all the dew at each other's roots, whereby they are jointly nourished, and become nourishers of one another.
      - John Bunyan

The introduction of Christianity, which, under whatever form, always confers such inestimable benefits on mankind, soon made a sensible change in these rude and fierce manners.
      - Edmund Burke

Christianity is no mere scheme of doctrine or of ethical practice, but is instead a kind of miracle, a power out of nature and above, descending into it; a historically supernatural movement on the world, that is visibly entered into it, and organized to be an institution in the person of Jesus Christ.
      - Horace Bushnell

Christianity is not so much the advent of a better doctrine as of a perfect character.
      - Horace Bushnell

Christianity is intensely practical. She has no trait more striking than her on common sense.
      - Charles Buxton

Christians have burnt each other, quite persuaded.
  That all the Apostles would have done as they did.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Don Juan (canto I, st. 83)

I would never want to be a member of a group whose symbol was a guy nailed to two pieces of wood.
      - George Carlin
