The modern dilemma is essentially a spiritual one, and every one of its main aspects, moral, political and scientific, brings us back to the need of a religious solution.
I like the religion that teaches liberty, equality and fraternity.
I'm a believer. I don't go to church. I don't belong to any particular religion, but I do believe in God. I couldn't write what I write about and be creative without a certain form of belief.
Being spiritual has nothing to do with what you believe and everything to do with your state of consciousness.
Religion is excellent stuff for keeping common people quiet. Religion is what keeps the poor from murdering the rich.
Sometimes the only way the good Lord can get into some hearts is to break them.
You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you,
none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.
The glory of Christianity is to conquer by forgiveness.
On earth there is no heaven, but there are pieces of it.
A faith is a necessity to a man. Woe to him who believes in nothing.
Faith, as well intentioned as it may be, must be built on facts, not fiction - faith in fiction is a damnable false hope.
There are two kinds of people: those who say to God, 'Thy will be done,' and those to whom God says, 'All right, then, have it your way.'
I had therefore to remove knowledge, in order to make room for belief.
It doesn’t matter what you say you believe - it only matters what you do.
Religion is the opium of the masses.
There is a God shaped vacuum in the heart of every man which cannot be filled by any created thing, but only by God, the Creator, made known through Jesus.
In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.
He is not strong and powerful who throweth people down; but he is strong who witholdeth himself from anger
We tend to think of prayer, in spite of ourselves, in terms of profit and loss.
Hope is a good thing - maybe the best thing, and no good thing ever dies
The world is my country,all mankind are my brethren,and to do good is my religion.
