Religion Quotes and Sayings - Page 4

Religions all have different names, but they all contain the same truths. I think the people of our religion should be tolerant and understand people believe different things.
– Muhammad Ali
Love God and love your neighbor, if you can not do it, your religion is useless!
It’s funny how religious people judge ones who don’t believe especially considering judging is a sin.
Don’t judge me for my beliefs because I don’t judge you for yours.

God has no religion.

Religion is man’s excuse to obtaining power and money… Under the cover of love and faith.
Some ancient religions required human sacrifices, others animal sacrifices, still others the annihilation of “unbelievers”. To that extent, religion sometimes does cause wars. The problem comes when all religions are lumped together and summarily rebuked, ridiculed, rebuffed or relegated to the scrap heap of human experience. This is a form of religious “profiling” that those who oppose religion would very often abhor being used to fight crime or prevent terrorism.
I struggled as a young man with the phrase “Christian guerillas” as it was applied to one of the factions fighting in Beirut, Lebanon. As a Christian myself, the two terms seemed antithetical to each other, but they were strung together never- the- less by reporters and news editors covering that struggle.
Religion and religious people have often been used and abused, twisted, misguided and manipulated by callous (and often non- religious) politicians (or power- intoxicated religious leaders) to initiate and/or seek justification for war.
But saying that religion causes war is like saying that vehicles cause accidents. Yes, from time to time wars have been fought in the name of religion. And at times religion was the pivotal cause or justification of such wars. But religious people have also done much good for their neighbors, and strangers alike. Did anyone notice the number of religious organizations what were already on the ground in Haiti even before the earthquake struck?
Those who oppose religion for any reason are quick to blame religion for every war they can, but they refuse to notice the good that religious people have done and the billions of dollars that are quietly given every year by religious people to religious organizations and used to improve communities, minister to the hurting, the sick and the needy of all sorts.
Every coin has two sides.
Science flies you to the moon, religion flies you into buildings.
Religious beliefs are increasingly losing their attraction in the minds of the American people.
– Dr T.P.Chia
A society without religion is like a maniac without a gun.
GOD is love, GOD is not religion !!
If I had to choose a religion, the sun as the universal giver of life would be my God.
– Napoleon Bonaparte

Religion is used to control the masses and has been used that way for its whole existence.
Religion and Faith is a way of controlling what people think and making them conform.
You never see animals going through the absurd and often horrible fooleries of magic and religion. Only man behaves with such gratuitous folly. It is the price he has to pay for being intelligent but not, as yet, quite intelligent enough.
– Aldous Huxley
Religion starts from the heart, and not bound to the customs and traditions of the World…if you love and praise God Almighty for what He has created for you…then it’s up to you how you express it.
Biggest wars have been about religion.
Difference between religions and humanity. Religions tell you to spend thousands of dollars on pilgrimage and distribution of holy books, while humanity tells you to spend that money on your neighbor who is starving to death, and on people living in poverty.
Atheists do not believe in nothing, they simply do not believe. We are people who need proof in order to believe. Maybe this is because we never saw faith as something we needed in the past, or maybe we have had faith and were disappointed, but we find it more difficult to trust than other people. We are often branded as totally distrusting, but I believe the truth of all atheists is that we are cautious and rational. We have felt disappointment, we have seen it’s effects and decided by ourselves that this is not something worth going through unless there is proof that religion is real. I admire those with faith, it is an honorable quality, but just one that in my heart of hearts I cannot embrace.
The really important thing about religion is that your faith and your belief help you to live a better life, sustain you in sorrow, and make you face the end of life with serenity.
Islam is not a new religion, but the same truth that God revealed through all his prophets to every people. For a fifth of the world’s population, Islam is both a religion and a complete way of life. Muslims follow a religion of peace, mercy, and forgiveness, and the majority have nothing to do with the extremely grave events which have come to be associated with their faith.
If you could reason with religious people, there would be no religious people.
Morality is doing what is right regardless of what you are told. Religion is doing what you are told regardless of what is right.
Does believing in God really make me narrow minded for just choosing one religion? I don’t believe in God as just a being. He is love. He is forgiveness. He is peace. He is mercy. He is kindness. He is much more than just a being. I don’t believe in religion, I chose to be apart of one. People who believe in many religions simply don’t accept truth. None of them match perfectly, that’s why choosing one is logical. Being a Christian does not make me “narrow- minded” or perfect in any way. I wake up some mornings and wonder what I’m thinking. But the truth is that unlike other religions. I FEEL God. I know he’s there. When I talk to him, I hear Him. He lives up to his Word. It’s ME that is fallible. So, does believing in a God that made and holds all things into being still make me narrow- minded? Does dabbling in other religions and finally coming to God make me narrow- minded? Why would you not want to believe in someone like God, who is ALL good. “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his will.”
There are no such things as Atheists. Even they believe that if the sun does not shine, it will one day, because there is a sun. They believe that if they sit down, a chair is there to hold them, and even if it slides out from under them, they will sit down again. They look outside and believe that nature exists. That in that nature, there are cells and molecules and in believing that, it’s science. I don’t have enough faith to be an atheist. Because by believing in nothing, they believe in something.
God loves all, and is all good. He is not war. He is not pain. He is not abuse. He is not murder. He is not your preacher. He is God. He is satisfied with himself completely and could never be killed. The grave could not hold him, and we cannot deny him. Believe.
No matter the religion, just be a good person, that’s what matters.
I tried choosing a religion once. It was a lot like choosing a straw for my drink. There were so many types and colors. I stood there trying to decide which was best; bendy straws, swirly ones, light up straws, really long straws, etc. After a while I just said f**k it and walked away with my drink. It still tasted the same without a straw.
Life without Jesus is not worth living.
Faith in God, is not blind faith. It is not an uneducated person wishing blindly for nirvana. You have to have faith in God to explain it. But, it is impossible to explain it to someone who chooses not to experience it. It is a choice, which in itself excludes blindness. It is a choice that has profound consequences. Faith, is not to be confused with religion.
Religion is to follow the principles of God through His Messenger from ancient time to this period of prophet.
Everyone always wants to quote the bible. Do you believe everything you read?
