Christian Quotes from C.S.
"Faith is the art of holding on to things your reason has
once accepted in spite of your changing moods."
"Relying on God has to begin all over again every day as
if nothing yet had been done."
"The Christian does not think God will love us because we
are good, but that God will make us good because He loves us;
just as the roof of a sunhouse does not attract the sun because
it is bright, but becomes bright because the son shines on it."
"God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our conscience,
but shouts in our pains: it is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world".
"I am perfectly convinced that whatever the gospels are they
are not legends. I have read a great deal of legend and I am quite
clear they are not that sort of thing....Christ bent down and
scribbled in the dust with His finger. Nothing comes of this.
No one has based any doctrine on it. And the act of inventing
little irrelevant details to make an imaginary scene more convincing
is purely a modern art."
"To be a Christian means to forgive the inexcusable, because
God has forgiven the inexcusable in you."
"The Scotch catechism says that man's chief end is 'to glorify
God and enjoy Him forever.' But we shall then know that these
are the same thing. Fully to enjoy is to glorify. In commanding
us to glorify Him, God is inviting us to enjoy Him."
"We may note in passing that He was never regarded as a mere
moral teacher. He did not produce that effect on any of the people
who actually met Him. He produced mainly three results---Hatred---Terror---Adoration.
There was no trace of people expressing mild admiration."
"We are to be re-made. All the rabbit in us is to disappear---the
worried, conscientious, ethical rabbit as well as the cowardly
and sensual rabbit. We shall bleed and squeal as the handfuls
of fur come out; and then, surprisingly, we shall find underneath
it all a thing we have never yet imagined: a real Man, an ageless
god, a son of God, strong, radiant, wise, beautiful, and drenched
"If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this
world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was
made for another world."
"Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and if true,
of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately
"If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end;
if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth
only soft soap and wishful thinking to begin, and in the end,
"Truly, at the day of judgment we shall not be examined by
what we have read, but what we have done; not how well we have
spoken, but how religiously we have lived."
Thomas A` Kempis
Christian Quotes from Pascal
"Truth is so obscure in these times, and falsehood so established,
that, unless we love the truth, we cannot know it."
"There once was in man a true happiness of which now remain
to him only the mark and empty trace, which he in vain tries to
fill from all his surroundings, seeking from things absent the
help he does not obtain in things present. But these are all inadequate,
because the infinite abyss can only be filled by an infinite and
immutable object, that is to say, only by God Himself."
"All I have seen teaches me to trust the creator for all
I have not seen."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Christian Quotes from R.A.
"The reason why many fail in battle is because they wait
until the hour of battle. The reason why others succeed is because
they have gained their victory on their knees long before the
battle came...Anticipate your battles; fight them on your knees
before temptation comes, and you will always have victory.
"Out of a very intimate acquaintance with D. L. Moody, I
wish to testify that he was a far greater pray-er than he was
preacher. Time and time again, he was confronted by obstacles
that seemed insurmountable, but he always knew the way to overcome
all difficulties. He knew the way to bring to pass anything that
needed to be brought to pass. He knew and believed in the deepest
depths of his soul that nothing was too hard for the Lord, and
that prayer could do anything that God could do. "
"We are too busy to pray, and so we are too busy to have
power. We have a great deal of activity, but we accomplish little;
many services but few conversions; much machinery but few results."
Christian Quotes from Matthew
Some people do not like to hear much of repentance; but
I think it is so necessary that if I should die in the pulpit,
I would desire to die preaching repentance, and if out of the
pulpit I would desire to die practicing it.
"The joy of the Lord will arm us against the assaults of
our spiritual enemies and put our mouths out of taste for those
pleasures with which the tempter baits his hooks."
"OUR wisdom, in so far as it ought to be deemed true and
solid Wisdom, consists almost entirely of two parts: the knowledge
of God and of ourselves."
Christian Quotes from John
"If thou art not a praying person, thou art not a Christian."
"When thou prayest, rather let thy heart be without words,
than thy words without a heart."
"Of all tears, they are best that are made by the blood of
Christ, and of all joy, that is the sweetest that is mixed with
mourning over Christ. Oh! it is a godly thing to be on our knees
with Christ in our arms before God. I hope to know something of
