Religion Quotes and Sayings - Page 5
A society without religion is like a maniac without a gun.
If I had to choose a religion, the sun as the universal giver of life would be my God.
– Napoleon Bonaparte
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.
This is a webpage for quotes ABOUT religion. While I find it symptomatic of the subject that people on both sides of the religious fence debate ad nauseum about it given the opportunity, I would like to remind you that there are discussion forums dedicated to precisely this activity. I believe the purpose of allowing you to submit comments is if you have constructive comments directly related to the quotes. I would ask that you please refrain from posting your personal views here.
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.
GOD is love, GOD is not religion !!
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
No matter the religion, just be a good person, that’s what matters.
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.
Everyone always wants to quote the bible. Do you believe everything you read?
All religions are like the tributaries of a river, they ultimately flow into the ocean, similarly truth comes under different names but the end result is always the same.
Science and religion are not at odds. Science is simply too young to understand.
– Dan Brown
The universe is not for man alone, but is a theater of evolution for all living beings. Live and let live is its guiding principle. Ahimsa Parmo Dharmah – Non- injury is the highest religion.
– Virchand Gandhi (1864-1901)
Life without Jesus is not worth living.
Religion is a bad joke made up by people with no sense of humor and told to people who are too scared to laugh.
You don’t have to be religious to feel like you want to help and make others feel good… I feel like most Christians, who say they are Christians, really are not Christians. They either smoke pot, or have judgmental issues. I feel religion is a personal believe and is supposed to be kept to yourself, and not pressured onto others… Inspire people by being the christian not telling people about it… I also feel that religion and God are two entirely separate things… People seem to think that because I am not a christian I don’t believe in god. I do, I believe in my own god, the one that I knew before I was to be taught about religion or Jesus or any god… I do see the good religion can do for people, however I feel those people that chose to be religious need to be guided anyhow. I feel religion is a way for the government to control their people, to make us feel content and safe. Thinking in a different realm could be threatening to the powerful people… I also feel like most Christians are just Christians because they want to look good rather than actually being good… Did you know that the same part of the brain that is being stimulated during a religious moment is the same part of the brain that is being stimulated during a schizophrenic moment? Hmmmm.. I’m human on plant earth. I am made up of billions of tiny cells that will eventually die off one by one.
It turned out I was pretty good in science. But again, because of the small budget, in science class we couldn’t afford to do experiments in order to prove theories. We just believed everything. Actually, I think that class was called Religion. Religion class was always an easy class. All you had to do was suspend the logic and reasoning you were being taught in all the other classes.
– George Carlin
