some truth to this, but I actually find that true Christians are more informed and growing in number…
"I know men and I tell you that Jesus Christ is no mere man. Between Him and every other person in the world there is no possible term of comparison.
Alexander, Caesar, Charlemagne, and I have founded empires. But on what did we rest the creation of our genius? Upon force. Jesus Christ founded His
empire upon love; and at this hour millions of men would die for Him."
~ Napoleon Bonaparte
"A man who was completely innocent, offered himself as a sacrifice for the good of others, including his enemies, and became the ransom of the world.
It was a perfect act."
~ Mahatma Gandhi
"Fundamentally, our Lord's message was Himself. He did not come merely to preach a Gospel; He himself is that Gospel. He did not come merely to give
bread; He said, "I am the bread." He did not come merely to shed light; He said, "I am the light." He did not come merely to show the door; He
said, "I am the door." ...He did not come merely to point the way; He said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life."
~ J. Sidlow
"For thirty five years of my life I was, in the proper acceptation of the word, nihilist, a man who believed in nothing. Five years ago my faith came
to me. I believed in the doctrine of Jesus Christ and my whole life underwent a sudden transformation. Life and death ceased to be evil. Instead of
despair, I tasted joy and happiness that death could not take away."
~ Leo Tolstoy
"Jesus is God spelling Himself out in language that men can understand."
~ S.D. Gordon
"Oh, eternal and everlasting God, direct my thoughts, words and work. Wash away my sins in the immaculate blood of the lamb and purge my heart by the
Holy Spirit. Daily, frame me more and more in the likeness of thy son, Jesus Christ, that living in thy fear, and dying in thy favor, I may in thy
appointed time obtain the resurrection of the justified unto eternal life. Bless, O Lord, the whole race of mankind and let the world be filled with
the knowledge of thy son, Jesus Christ."
~ George Washington, 1st President of the United States
"In praise of Thy goodness I must confess that Thou didst try with all Thy means to draw me to Thee. Sometimes it pleased Thee to let me feel the
heavy hand of Thy displeasure and to humiliate my proud heart by manifold castigations. Sickness and misfortune didst Thou send upon me to turn my
thoughts to my errantries. - One thing, only, O Father, do I ask: cease not to labor for my betterment. In whatsoever manner it be, let me turn to
Thee and become fruitful in good works."
~ Ludwig van Beethoven
"...I live with God ever before me. I recognize His omnipotence, I fear His anger; I acknowledge His love, too, His compassion and mercy towards all
His creatures; He will never desert those who serve Him."
~ Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
"I believe there is no one deeper, lovelier, more sympathetic and more perfect than Jesus - not only is there no one else like him, there never could
be anyone like him."
~ Fyodor Dostoevsky
"Socrates taught for 40 years, Plato for 50, Aristotle for 40, and Jesus for only 3. Yet the influence of Christ's 3-year ministry infinitely
transcends the impact left by the combined 130 years of teaching from these men who were among the greatest philosophers of all antiquity."
"As a child I received instruction both in the Bible and in the Talmud. I am a Jew, but I am enthralled by the luminous figure of the Nazarene....No
one can read the Gospels without feeling the actual presence of Jesus. His personality pulsates in every word. No myth is filled with such life."
~ Albert Einstein
"Despite our efforts to keep him out, God intrudes. The life of Jesus is bracketed by two impossibilities: 'a virgin's womb and an empty tomb'.
Jesus entered our world through a door marked, 'No Entrance' and left through a door marked 'No Exit.'
~ Peter Larson
"People talk about imitating Christ, and imitate Him in the little trifling formal things, such as washing the feet, saying His prayer, and so on;
but if anyone attempts the real imitation of Him, there are no bounds to the outcry with which the presumption of that person is condemned."
~ Florence Nightingale, British nursing hero of the Crimean War (1820 -1910)
Buddha never claimed to be God.
Moses never claimed to be Jehovah.
Mohammed never claimed to be Allah.
Yet Jesus Christ claimed to be the true and living God.
Buddha simply said, 'I am a teacher in search of the truth.'
Jesus said, 'I am the Truth.'
Confucius said, 'I never claimed to be holy.'
Jesus said, 'Who convicts me of sin?'
Mohammed said, 'Unless God throws his cloak of mercy over me, I have no hope.'
Jesus said, 'Unless you believe in me, you will die in your sins.'"
