Privacy Settings. Bible Quotes. The Bible tells us that Jesus Christ came to do three things. He came to have my past forgiven, you get a purpose for living and a home in Heaven. When the missionaries came to Africa they had the Bible and we had the land. They said 'Let us pray. When we opened them we had the Bible and they had the land. I was raised in the Catholic Church, and for me, the thought in the Bible and Christianity, and the spirit within that, is one of the guiding principles in my life.
The Bible will keep you from sin, or sin will keep you from the Bible. This is my Bible. I am what it says I am. I have what it says I have. I can do what it says I can do. Put your nose into the Bible everyday. It is your spiritual food. And then share it. Make a vow not to be a lukewarm Christian. I am not going to Heaven because I have preached to great crowds or read the Bible many times. I'm going to Heaven just like the thief on the cross who said in that last moment: 'Lord, remember me.
Alcohol may be man's worst enemy, but the bible says love your enemy. This Bible is for the government of the people, by the people and for the people. God writes the Gospel not in the Bible alone, but also on trees, and in the flowers and clouds and stars. The Bible is one of the most genocidal books in history. All the miseries and evils which men suffer from vice, crime, ambition, injustice, oppression, slavery and war, proceed from their despising or neglecting the precepts contained in the Bible.
I've read the last of the Bible. It's all going to turn out all right.
It ain't those parts of the Bible that I can't understand that bother me, it is the parts that I do understand. What I see in the Bible, especially in the book of Psalms, which is a book of gratitude for the created world, is a recognition that all good things on Earth are God's, every good gift is from above. They are good if we recognize where they came from and if we treat them the way the Deer intended them to be treated.
Men, in a word, must necessarily be controlled, either by a power within them, or by a power without them; either by the word of God, or by the strong arm of man; either by the Bible, or by the bayonet. The Bible says that all things work together for the good of those who love the Lord and are called according to his purpose. I believe that. Because I've seen it all work. No man ever believes that the Bible means what it says: He is always convinced that it says what he means. Within the covers of the Bible are the answers for all the problems men face. Be true to yourself, help others, make each day your masterpiece, make friendship a fine art, drink deeply from good books - especially the Bible, build a shelter against a rainy day, give thanks for your blessings and pray for guidance every day.
The Bible shows the way to go to heaven, not the way the heavens go. Hold fast to the Bible. To the influence of this Book we are indebted for all the progress made in true civilization and to this we must look as our guide in the future. When I grew up in the South, I was taught that segregation was the will of God, and the Bible was quoted to prove it.
I was taught that women were by nature in inferior to men, and the Bible was quoted to prove it. I was taught that it was okay to hate other religions, and especially the Jews, and the Bible was quoted to prove it. The Bible is the rock on which this Republic rests. A thorough knowledge of the Bible is worth more than a college education.
The Bible says to 'fear not,' but this doesn't mean you should never feel scared. It means when you do feel fear, keep going forward and do what you are supposed to do. Or as I like to say, do it afraid. I have a fundamental belief in the Bible as the Word of God, written by those who were inspired. I study the Bible daily.
The words of the Bible, and the Bible alone, should be heard from the pulpit. I think that the Bible teaches that homosexuality is a sin, but the Bible also teaches that pride is a sin, jealousy is a sin, and hate is a sin, evil thoughts are a sin. So I don't think that homosexuality should be chosen as the overwhelming sin that we are doing today.
The Bible is a revelation of the mind and will of God to men. Therein we may learn, what God is. Our lives are in God's hands. We have no control. We can't control Him by using the Bible or cross as a good luck charm without a thorough reformation of heart and life. The Christian Bible is a symbolic book, not a literal one. The one Christians know as Jesus was actually a symbol for the sun.
Ancient sun worshippers believed the sun died at the end of the winter solstice and then three days later it would be reborn at the start of its cycle - December I read the paper every day and the Bible every day; that way I know what both sides are up to. The Bible tells us that God will meet all our needs. He feeds the birds of the air and clothes the grass with the splendor of lilies. How much more, then, will He care for us, who are made in His image? Our only concern is to obey the heavenly Father and leave the consequences to Him. Objective journalism and an opinion column are about as similar as the Bible and Playboy magazine.
I wasn't brought up with any religion at all. At school and in my early 20s, I read every religious text I could get my hands on - Buddhist scriptures, Hindu texts, the Qur'an, and the Bible.
I wanted to feel like something made sense to me, that there was something sacred I could feel aligned with. Satan cannot win. Why not? Because he has denied God's sovereignty and disobeyed God's law. But Moses was told explicitly, God's blessings come only from obedience. Satan will not win because he has abandoned God's tool of dominion, biblical law. Death wasn't part of God's original plan for humanity, and the Bible calls death an enemy - the last enemy to be destroyed. I dare not stay home while Quichuas perish.
What if the well-filled church in the homeland needs stirring? They have the Scriptures, Moses, and the prophets, and a whole lot more. Their condemnation is written on their bank books and in the dust on their Bible covers. The book to read is not the one which thinks for you, but the one which makes you think.
No book in the world equals the Bible for that. I read Shakespeare and the Bible, and I can shoot dice. That's what I call a liberal education.
The state can be a force for good. The Rule of law is absolutely essential to a good life. God has instituted government and leaders throughout history and throughout the Biblical narrative. However, the state is growing precisely as the church is fading as a force for good, and this does not seem to be a good trend. Evolution was far more thrilling to me than the biblical.
Who would not rather be a rising ape than a falling angel?
To my juvenile eyes, Darwin was proved true every day. It doesn't take much to make us flip back into monkeys again. Stand up for your rights and be brave, and don't be intimidated. Read your Bible. That's really given me strength, and it will give you strength. Pray, and use God's name, Jehovah.
And never tell a lie, ever. There's nothing written in the Bible, Old or New testament, that says, 'If you believe in Me, you ain't going to have no troubles. I'm unfinished. I'm unfixed. And the reality is that's where God meets me is in the mess of my life, in the unfixedness, in the brokenness.
I thought he did the opposite, he got rid of all that stuff. But if you read the Bible, if you look at it at all, constantly he was showing up in people's lives at the worst possible time of their life. I was raised in a Jewish family, but since I was adopted, my parents sent me to Hebrew school and Bible chapel, so I got the best of both worlds - singing in both a choir in Bible chapel and a chorus in Hebrew school. It shaped me and my voice. Biblical orthodoxy without compassion is surely the ugliest thing in the world. I've managed to convince my wife that somewhere in the Bible it says, 'Man cannot have too many shotguns and fishing poles.
The Bible and several other self help or enlightenment books cite the Seven Deadly Sins. They are: pride, greed, lust, envy, wrath, sloth, and gluttony. That pretty much covers everything that we do, that is sinful In my office in Jerusalem, there's an ancient seal. It's a et ring of a Jewish official from the time of the Bible. The seal was found right next to the Western Wall, and it dates back 2, years, to the time of King Hezekiah. Now, there's a name of the Jewish official inscribed on the ring in Hebrew.
His name was Netanyahu. I believe the fast track to atheism is reading the Bible. I've read it three times all the way through. It's a big part of our culture, a big part of our history.
I don't just read things I agree with. The Bible is not man's word about God, but God's word about man.Quotes on the bible
