Your example should be stellar among your friends, associates, family, teachers, co-workers, and other Christians.
I believe that today‘s players who are Christians feel that it’s important and their responsibility to acknowledge their faith.
When it comes to engaging and influencing culture, too many Christians think too highly of political activism.
Virtue is something you have to get good at, like playing the trombone or tolerating bores at parties. Being a virtuous human being takes practice; and those who are brilliant at being human (what Christians call the saints) are the virtuosi of the moral sphere – the Pavarottis and Maradonas of virtue.
I think Christians and Muslims should hug each other.
I don’t know whether or not it’s good that we embrace all religions. We are no longer Christians – nevertheless a knowledge of God should still be important for Europeans.
Christians are increasingly being punished for the free exercise of their faith and for standing on God’s Word and holding to biblical convictions about sin. This is especially apparent with the gay lobby.
I’ve always been technically a Christian, my Dad and my Mom, they’re both Christians.
Many in our increasingly secular culture want to chase Christians out of the public square altogether.
People who are comfortable with very clear boundaries and group definitions don’t like the instability and ambiguity of people who say they are more advanced Christians, or they don’t have to do what the bishop says.
Evangelical Christians and I can sit down and talk one on one about how much we love Jesus, and yet I’m not carried in Christian bookstores.
A fully positive relationship between Christians and Jews is one that would elide all differences.
When Christians start thinking about Jesus, things start breaking down, they lose their faith. It’s perfectly possible to go to church every Sunday and not ask any questions, just because you like it as a way of life. They fear that if they ask questions they’ll lose their Christ, the very linchpin of their religion.
Christians are increasingly being punished by the government for acting on their sincerely held religious beliefs about marriage that are based on the standard of Scripture.
There hasn’t been this much excitement since the Romans fed the Christians to the Lions.
It is easy for Christians to have the false impression that once we have established a relationship with Christ, which we believe sets us right with God, the problems of life will somehow scoot away or they will slowly be removed from our lives.
See how these Christians love one another.
I find it difficult to imagine an afterlife, such as Christians, or at any rate many religious people, conceive it, believing that the conversations with relatives and friends interrupted here on earth will be continued in the hereafter.
This morning in the Washington Post there was a statistic about how 85% of Americans are Christians.
It is tragic that many in America think of us – Christians – as being people who hate others.
The systematic murder of Christians in the Middle East is a horrible atrocity, and all of us should be united against it. Likewise, we should speak with one voice against the persecution of Jews, usually being carried out by the very same jihadist radicals.
Frankly, Christians have not always made good presidents.
American Christians are quite able to organize around issues that concern them. Yet religious persecution appears not to have grabbed their attention, despite worldwide media coverage of the atrocities against Christians and other religious minorities in the Middle East.
Prayer is such a basic foundation of a Christian’s relationship with God. It’s how we communicate and fellowship with Him. But a surprising number of people, young and old, new and even long-time Christians, say they’re not satisfied with their prayer life.
Christians have no idea how to deal with art.
Christians – at least Christians in a liberal democracy – have accepted, after Thomas Hobbes, that they must obey the secular rule of law; that there must be a separation of church and state.
It’s very important for Christians to be honest with God, which often, you know, God is much more interested in who you are than who you want to be.
Christians might say that you can’t live a more meaningful life without Jesus. Well, that’s absolutely not true. You can. You can enjoy a sunrise whether you know Jesus or not.
The Jews know who they are as a people. The Christians have not come together as a people yet.
Some Christians see the biblical teaching on homosexuality as reflecting the culture and times in which the Bible was written and not reflecting God’s eternal perspective on homosexual people. Others believe these scriptures represent God’s timeless will for how human beings practice intimacy.
Christians will not be here to experience the great tribulation under the Antichrist.
The Hindu nationalists see a religion near perfection save for the tampering of Muslims and Christians. So they fall upon these groups, rather than try to reform their own practices by drawing on India‘s sophisticated philosophical traditions.
I will forever stick up for Catholics and Christians in general. With a small number of very horrible exceptions, they do play by the rules.
Jews do not have to be Christians. Christianity is an offshoot of Judaism, but too utopian, too hopeful, too unrealistic a turn.
If I hadn’t been raised in such a logical household, the entertainment industry would have elicited only one reaction from me in regards to ‘Christians’: ‘Good God, these people are crazy.’
One of the problems with compromise in one area of Scripture is where do you stop compromising? If Christians accept the idea of human evolution, then why not accept the idea that our sinful tendencies are really just evolved tendencies?
It is important to have a circle of Christians friends, which I do have.
The hard-core Left loves ridiculing Christians who believe scripture that says, ‘God created the heaven and the earth.’ They say that it’s anti-science to believe that an almighty God would do such a thing.
I don’t think it’s any mystery that any Christians can be some of the most judgmental people on the planet.
The doctrine of blind obedience and unqualified submission to any human power, whether civil or ecclesiastical, is the doctrine of despotism, and ought to have no place among Republicans and Christians.
Traditional Christians cannot conceive of God as Mormons do: a God who has a wife, who invites other human beings to become gods with him.
Christians need to embrace that there need to be believers talking about love and social issues and all other aspects of life.
A lot of people, to attack an outspoken atheist, one of the things they’ll do is say, ‘You are as bad as the fundamentalist Christians.’ And my answer is always, ‘I hope so.’
My way of putting it is that Christians are called to live nonviolently not because we believe nonviolence is a strategy to rid the world of war, but in a world of war as faithful followers of Christ, we cannot imagine being anything other than nonviolent.
Pakistan is not going to be a theocratic State – to be ruled by priests with a divine mission. We have many non-Muslims – Hindus, Christians, and Parsis – but they are all Pakistanis. They will enjoy the same rights and privileges as any other citizens and will play their rightful part in the affairs of Pakistan.
Many who become theologians in our time think their task is to try to determine how much of what has passed for Christianity they still need to believe and yet still be able to think of themselves as Christians.
The Left has pushed immorality to the point we have so-called ‘same-sex marriage’ and ‘transgender‘ nonsense trampling the rights of Christians.
The roots of India’s soft power run deep. India’s is a civilization that, over millennia, has offered refuge and, more importantly, religious and cultural freedom, to Jews, Parsis, several varieties of Christians, and Muslims.
There are all kinds of great things that megachurches and successful fundraising appeals can allow you to do, especially in terms of overseas charity work, and so on. I’m just arguing that American Christians need to recognize the temptations that can expose you to as well.
If the main contribution that Christians make to culture is complaining about it, we’re doing something wrong.
There are only two sorts of people in life you can trust – good Christians and good Communists.
I’ve met Christians everywhere I go. I’ve met Christians on every set I’ve been on, in the crew, the cast, everywhere.
There are other people in ‘Dreamgirls’ who are born-again Christians. We have a Bible study class once a week. It was started by Charles Bernard and myself. We meet at the theater.
Unlike the issue of messiahhood, which arose when Jews and Christians were members of the same religio-political community and spoke the same conceptual language, the issues of the incarnation and the Trinity divide people who are no longer members of the same community and who no longer speak the same language.
I do believe that Muslims and Christians and Jews pray to the same God. And yet they understand who God is in significantly different ways.
I hope the day that all the Christians are one. This is my dream.
If the Pope urged the Western nations to rescue persecuted Christians in the Middle East, I would back him wholeheartedly.
There are some people who need to wear a label round their necks to show that they are Christians at all, or else we might mistake them for sinners, their actions are so like those of the ungodly.
What God wants is for us to live by His rules, resulting in the receiving of His blessing and power. When we as Christians, celebrating our differences, join together as the house of God representing the kingdom of God for the glory of God, we get the response of God to our presence in history.
American fundamentalist thought connected strongly to reactionary political ideology as nervous Christians pushed back against liberal reforms on many fronts.
Most evangelical Christian conservatives I know would at least be uneasy about the prospect of the government picking up the slack of caring for the poor due to Christians’ abdication of their role in society as dictated by Scripture.
I went through those times in my life where I started to get bitter and angry, and you’re like, ‘Why am I even a Christian? I don’t like any of these people that call themselves Christians.’ That’s when I had to go spend time with God, and He had to remind me I’m walking with Him and not these people.
Mormonism is not historic Christianity. When people say, ‘Well, Mormons and Christians all believe the same things,’ my response is, ‘If that’s true, why are they always on my front doorstep trying to convert me?’
I think that Christians should have confidence, we have always been part of the mainstream conversation, and if we don’t join in often what you hear gets hectoring and mad, just people on the margins.
We’re told that you can have a relationship with Jesus, but most Christians don’t experience Jesus personally like that. They just don’t. We honor Him. We respect Him. We worship Him. We don’t experience Him and His personality like we do the people we love the most in our lives.
‘Who Is This Man?’ is about the impact of Jesus on human history. Most people – including most Christians – simply have no idea of the extent to which we live in a Jesus-impacted world.
Christians were instructed to serve others, and the thanksgiving was for the grace of God and the fact that God offered a way for man to return to a positive relationship with Him.
I do not want to convince Christians to work for the abolition of war, but rather I want us to live recognizing that in the cross of Christ, war has been abolished.
Forgiveness is a spiritual practice and biblical mandate from the New Testament that many American Christians engage in as a part of their faith.
The entire industry is a great commune. People from all walks of life come here – Hindu, Muslims, Sikhs and Christians. Now, our films are also getting international recognition.
We need to do more to stop Iran’s persecution of different religious faiths, including Sunni Muslims, Christians, and Bahais. We must do more to protect the Iranian‘s people’s right to freedom of expression.
Sometimes Christians live in a terror of universal obligation: AIDS over here, people to be saved over here, a crushing sense of low-level guilt every day of our lives. Question to ask: Where has God put me right now? I need to say no to a whole bunch of other things because if I don’t say no I can’t say yes to others.
The faith I was born into formed me. I come from a missionary family – I grew up in China – and in my case, my religious upbringing was positive. Of course, not everyone has this experience. I know many of my students are what I have come to think of as wounded Christians or wounded Jews.
Even political insiders recognize that years of political effort on behalf of Evangelical Christians have generated little cultural gain.
Christians are being systematically exterminated.
I live my life not to please my pastor or my church or fellow Christians. I live my life according to my own convictions and morals and core values and principles, and a lot of times, that’s not going to add up to other Christians.
A lot of Republicans are white Christians, but the Republican Party is reaching out to Hispanics, and reaching out to blacks, and reaching out to Asians.
We who don’t want radical Islam to spread must compete with the agents of radical Islam. I want to see what would happen if Christians, feminists and Enlightenment thinkers were to start proselytizing in the Muslim community.
So many people live with anger and unforgiveness, and many of them are Christians.
You can’t make yourself saved. This is very threatening to people, even Christians, because of what it seems to say about freedom.
Only the old are innocent. That is what the Victorians understood, and the Christians. Original sin is a property of the young. The old grow beyond corruption very quickly.
For practicing Christians, Easter Sunday and the Holy week that precedes it are the apex of our faith. Without the resurrection of Christ there is no Christianity.
Trump cannot be re-elected without the votes of evangelical Christians, a group of people who, because of their heated eschatological dreams, are simultaneously capable of blindly supporting Israel and regarding American Jews with suspicion.
Do Christians sin? Yes, absolutely. But can Christians live in a state of sin without discipline and without being brought back in obedience to their Father? Absolutely not.
I grew up in a difficult environment, but I became a Christian as a teen. My mom and my sister soon became Christians also.
Liberals, conservatives, Muslims, Jews, Christians, and I find – I think education is something that can bring us together.
I suppose that I inherited the same vocabulary and world view as most black Christians do, most Christians in general, to be sure. It was heterosexist in the sense that it took the heterosexual orientation as the norm from which to start as the given. And everything that fell outside of that was not acceptable.
I feel that Christian music is a subculture directed towards the Christians. It’s not really being exposed to non-Christians and it’s not really created for non-Christians, so non-Christians almost never hear any of this music.
In baptism, new Christians become part of a body of fellow believers who are called to spiritually encourage one another and hold one another responsible for consistent Christian living.
I don’t think the area of Jerusalem should be part of a Jewish state; it belongs to all people, to Christians and Muslims and the Jewish people.
If Muslims curse the Christians, then the Christians will curse the Muslims. And people will curse Allah, and Allah will hold us responsible for that.
I have for some time now been deeply troubled by the growing difficulties faced by Christian communities in various parts of the Middle East. It seems to me that we cannot ignore the fact that Christians in the Middle East are increasingly being deliberately targeted by fundamentalist Islamist militants.
I have born-again Christians in my family, and they are completely against abortion… Everybody‘s got to stop being afraid of it real soon. Who’s going to do it if a woman’s network doesn’t? People are going to be dying.
Here is the amazing thing about Easter; the Resurrection Sunday for Christians is this, that Christ in the dying moments on the cross gives us the greatest illustration of forgiveness possible.
Jesus did not spend a great deal of time discoursing about the trinity or original sin or the incarnation, which have preoccupied later Christians. He went around doing good and being compassionate.
Real Christians revel in desperate ventures for Christ, expecting from God great things and attempting the same with exhilaration.
One of the problems with the identification of Christianity with love is how such a view turns out to be both anti-Semitic and anti-Catholic. The Jews and Catholics become identified with the law or dogma, in contrast to Protestant Christians, who are about love.
From politics to parenting, Christians have something to say.
As Christians, our compassion is simply a response to the love that God has already shown us.
Good men, whether they be Christians or rationalists, do not desire to discriminate between races, but the distinctions implanted by Nature are too conspicuous to escape the observation of our senses.
About the gnostic writers themselves and the setting in which they lived we know little, although gnostic Christians were influential enough to be denounced at length.
I think many times Christians don’t really take the opportunity to hear what people are saying and seeing in the world around them.
I would never agree to an exclusive Muslim sovereignty over areas that are religiously important to Jews and Christians.
Christianity emerged from the religion of Israel. Or rather, it has as its background a persistent strain in that religion. To that strain Christians have looked back, and rightly, as the preparation in history for their faith.
Muslims and Christians can work together to depose dictators and assert the power of the people. We’ve seen it happen on the Tahrir Square in Cairo during the 2011 revolution in Egypt, with devout Muslims and Coptic Christians protesting side by side.
I can look at the future with anticipation. And it’s comforting to know that someday, as Christians, we’ll be able to look back and have a little more clarity on why certain things in life happened.
Those of us who were brought up as Christians and have lost our faith have retained the sense of sin without the saving belief in redemption. This poisons our thought and so paralyses us in action.
When you read the New Testament, you see the Holy Spirit was supposed to change everything so that this gathering of people who call themselves Christians had this supernatural element about them.
There is no such thing as ‘separation of church and state.’ Reporters continue to promote this fallacy and scare Christians out of standing up for their beliefs.
My stories are not Christianized at all. I don’t even have any Christians in my stories. What they are, are stories about ordinary people going through extraordinary circumstances in which I’m exploring truth. How light overcomes darkness in a way that’s unmistakable to anyone who has any kind of faith.
If you look from my point of view, that’s what Christians strive for – love from God.
We, as Christians, have a legacy to leave, and it’s all about a love of Christ to permeate the music and reach the hearts of all of the people out there, that don’t know him and do know him.
There are people in the world who aren’t necessarily Christians, but they’re just naturally nice people who do a lot for other people. Those people will almost always be prosperous people.
I’ve spent so many years talking about poverty and economic justice, I’m strongly tempted to get biblical. Jesus’ teachings are so radical; they’re just insanely generous and apocalyptic. Christians become more fascinated by the dead Jesus. They don’t like the living Jesus.
The Media is ruled by Satan. But yet I wonder if many Christians fully understand that.
I know it sounds crazy, but as soon as Christians start telling non-Christians how to live their lives, we’ve lost the Christian faith.
The Muslims want to force conversion. Christians want to persuade you to voluntarily change your heart to where you would say yes to Jesus Christ.
I do what I believe the Lord did, and that is walk in love with all mankind, which I don’t see a lot of Christians doing. Christians can be so judgmental that it can turn off people who are considering converting. It makes me a little embarrassed, to tell you the truth, when I hear Christians criticizing others.
I believe in full freedom for Christians of all denominations.
Why do people get upset when Christians say there is only one way to Heaven? Shouldn’t those who follow a particular religion believe its doctrine to be true?
Most Christians would not recognize Mormonism as part of the Christian faith.
I think, in the media, Christians are the butt of every joke, or they are portrayed running around condemning everyone to Hell.
For years and years, Christians have been singing about their wandering hearts. Our hearts need to be recalibrated and realigned and reoriented by God.
I don’t think we need to agree with anyone in order to love the person. The command for Christians to love the other person, to be benevolent and beneficent toward them, is independent of what the other believes.
As Christians, we often tend to get our Bible doctrine confused and start mixing truths that were never meant to be mixed.
I thought Christians were walking idiots.
Christians have no greater ally than Israel.
If Christians will obey the instructions given to them by Christ and his inspired apostles, they will adorn the religion of the Bible, and save themselves much perplexity and severe trials, which they attribute to their afflictions in consequence of believing unpopular truth.
I increasingly see organized religion as actually my enemy. They treat me as their enemy. Not all Christians, of course. Not all Jews, not all Muslims.
I’m the spokesperson for the Multifaith Alliance for Syrian Refugees. My father was from Syria. It’s an American initiative, and it’s multi-faith. So, it’s maybe 60-65 different organisations, Jews, Christians, Hindus… Anyway, it’s very important and serious.
My mission in life is to get to heaven, so the people I have in my inner circle I don’t allow to do the ‘rule breaking’ that we know as Christians we can’t.
There is no room for Christians in today’s Democratic Party.
While a case can be made for intelligent design, I can’t figure out why some Christians are so thrilled about that possibility. First of all, it doesn’t prove there’s a God. If anything, intelligent design lends support to some form of pantheism that defines God as immanent within nature.
I’m not in favour of dividing Hindus and Sikhs. I’m not in favour of dividing Hindus and Christians. All the citizens, all the voters, are my countrymen.
No persons professing to be Christians should enter the marriage relation until the matter has been carefully and prayerfully considered from an elevated standpoint, to see if God can be glorified by the union.
That I am not a member of any Christian church is true; but I have never denied the truth of the Scriptures, and I have never spoken with intentional disrespect of religion in general, or of any denomination of Christians in particular.
Anti-Christian ideology has permeated much of the secular news media, and so often Biblical Christians are mocked, misrepresented or attacked for what they believe by anti-Christian agenda driven reporters.
My feeling is that if all Catholics or Reformed Christians had been deported to Germany, the Dutch government in London would have instructed the population in the occupied Netherlands to help them.
160 million-plus people call themselves Christians. They go to church once a month at least. That’s a lot of people.
A lot of people, especially Christians, want to put you in this box of being a Christian actor, and I don’t believe in it. You do yourself and everyone else a big disservice when you start thinking about it as ‘Christian art.’ That’s why most Christian art is bad. They don’t put a premium on the ‘art.’
I’ve said that, that I’ve felt like as Christians and particularly even as Republicans, we needed to address issues that touched the broader perspective, and that included disease, hunger, poverty, homelessness, the environment.
Many Christians have so busied themselves with programs and activities that they no longer know how to be silent and meditate on God’s word or recognize the mysteries that are in the Person of Christ.
People define Christianity differently. I think a large portion of our population are Christians, they’re not all growing in their faith, they’re not all active, but I believe that a lot of people believe in Jesus and believe that he is their Lord and Savior.
Particularly conservative Christians, I was very angry that they were not involved more in the AIDS emergency.
I think that Christians who have an interest in filmmaking need to deepen their love for cinema. To be honest, that’s what I think has been missing historically from the Christians who want to succeed in the Hollywood industry.
This type of gathering is unprecedented. The time has come for Christians to publicly affirm our Jewish roots, distinctions and oneness in Jesus Christ.
I think most non-Christians who try to be good people are probably better Christians than Christians.
Christmas is a season which almost all Christians observe in one way or another. Some keep it as a religious season. Some keep it as a holiday. But all over the world, wherever there are Christians, in one way or another Christmas is kept.
Red Letter Christians believe in the doctrines of the Apostle’s Creed, are convinced that the Scriptures have been inspired by the Holy Spirit, and make having a personal transforming relationship with the resurrected Christ the touchtone of their faith.
I have learned to interface – what I think would be the contemporary term – with various different lexicons, and people speak very different languages. I’ve learned to speak in a lot of tongues, and I can live with the bellicose language of some fervent, fire-breathing Christians, sure.
