He who is truly a good man is more than half way to being a Christian, by whatever name he is called.
      - Bishop Robert South

The greatest, strongest, mightiest plea for the church of God in the world is the existence of the Spirit of God in its midst, and the works of the Spirit of God are the true evidences of Christianity. They say miracles are withdrawn, but the Holy Spirit is the standing miracle of the church of God to-day.
      - Charles Haddon Spurgeon

I desire no other evidence of the truth to Christianity than the Lord's Prayer.
      - Madame de Stael (Baronne Anne Louise Germaine de Stael-Holstein)

Christianity is, above all other religions ever known, a religion of sacrifice. It is a religion founded on the greatest of all sacrifices, the sacrifice of the Incarnation, culminating in the sacrifice on Calvary.
      - Dean Arthur Penrhyn Stanley

Look back to the cross, and the disciples gazing on it in terror from afar, and then look around on the nations that are influenced by the faith that there centres--and note the change! Then take these elements, established in history, and calculate the orbit Christianity is to fill.
      - Richard Salter Storrs

I thank the goodness and the grace
  Which on my birth have smiled,
    And made me, in these Christian days
      A happy Christian child.
      - Jane Taylor, Child's Hymn of Praise

Christianity teaches us to moderate our passions; to temper our affections toward all things below; to be thankful for the possession, and patient under loss, whenever He who gave shall see fit to take away.
      - Sir William Temple

See how these Christians love one another.
  [Lat., Vide, inquiunt ut invicem se diligant.]
      - Quintus Septimius Florens Tertullian,
        Apologeticus (ch. XXIX)

I have been young, but now am old. I have spent a whole lifetime in battling against infidelity with the weapons of apologetic science; but I have become ever more and more convinced that the way to the heart does not lie through the head; and that way to conversion of the head lies through a converted heart which already tastes the living fruits of the Gospel.
      - Friedrich August Tholuck

While Christianity is speaking in languages more numerous, by tongues more eloquent, in nations more populous than ever before; marshaling better troops, with richer harmony; shrinking from no foe, rising triumphant from every conflict; shaking the towers of old philosophies that exalt themselves against God; making the steam-press rush under the demand for her Scriptures, and the steam-horse groan under the weight of her charities; emancipating the enslaved, civilizing the lawless, refining literature, inspiring poetry; sending forth art and science no longer clad in raiment to linger in king's palaces, but as hardy prophets of God to make earth bud and blossom as the rose; giving God-like breadth and freedom and energy to the civilization that bears its name, elevating savage islands into civilized states, leading forth Christian martyrs from the mountains of Madagascar, turning the clubs of cannibals into the railings of the altars before which Fiji savages call upon Jesus; repeating the Pentecost, "by many an ancient river and many a palmy plain;" thundering at the seats of ancient paganism; sailing all waters, cabling all oceans, scaling all mountains in the march of its might, and ever enlarging the diameter of those circles of light which it has kindled on earth, and which will soon meet in a universal illumination,--you call it a failure! A little more of such failure, and we shall have, over all the globe, the new heavens and new earth wherein dwelleth righteousness.
      - Edward Thomson

Christianity is the companion of liberty in all its conflicts, the cradle of its infancy and the divine source of its claims.
      - Alexis de Tocqueville

Give us more and more of real Christianity, and we shall need less of its evidences.
      - Unknown

Other sciences may strengthen certain faculties of the soul; some the intellect, some the imagination, some the memory; but Christianity strengthens the soul itself.
      - Unknown

Personal Christianity is not a creed, however orthodox; not a ritualism, however Scriptural; not a profession, however outwardly consistent; not a service, however seemingly useful; but is Christ in man.
      - Unknown

The pure and benign light of revelation has had a meliorating influence on mankind.
      - George Washington

Lord, I ascribe it to Thy grace,
  And not to chance, as others do,
    That I was born of Christian race.
      - Isaac Watts, Divine Songs for Children

Christianity, contrasted with the Jewish system of emblems, is truth in the sense of reality, as substance is opposed to shadows, and, contrasted with heathen mythology, is truth as opposed to falsehood.
      - Archbishop Richard Whately

A Christian is the highest style of man.
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts
         (night IV, l. 788)
