I believe the purpose of all major religious traditions is not to construct big temples on the outside, but to create temples of goodness and compassion inside, in our hearts.
A congregation needs nothing so much as sun. It's kind of like an antioxidant from God.
Reichs This is the true spirit of insolent dogmatism: We have proved to the satisfaction of every honest man, that we are right, and that you are wrong; and therefore, if you are not convinced, it must be owing to your own perversity.
When a man's shot is exhausted, he will try to terrify his adversary by firing off powder. The sky seems to be a pure, a cooler blue, the trees a deeper green. The whole world is charged with the glory of God and I feel fire and music under my feet.
She read many books, some wise, some vague, some full of superstition, all unsatisfactory to one who wanted a living God. She went to many churches, studied many creeds, and watched their fruits as well as she could; but still remained unsatisfied There was too much machinery, too many walls, laws, and penalties between the Father and his children.
Too much fear, too little love Too much idle strife about names and creeds; too little knowledge of the natural religion which has no name but godliness, whose creed is boundless and benignant as the sunshine, whose faith is as the tender trust of little children in their mother's love.
A Story of Experience, God made so many different kinds of people. Why would he allow only one way to serve him? There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.
Say and do what you like, religion is always religion. The rich, perhaps, can get along without it, but it is necessary for people like us When one is unhappy Only that, and love. Tucker Religion — an intellectual colouring book for adults. The human soul, like any other noble vessel, was not built to be anchored, but to sail.
An anchorage may, indeed, be at times a temporary need, in order to make some special repairs, or to take fresh cargo in; yet the natural destiny of both ship and soul is not the harbor, but the ocean; to cut with even keel the vast and beautiful expanse; to pass from island to island Men must forget the eternity through which they have yet to sail, when they talk of anchoring here upon this bank and shoal of time.
It would be a tragedy to see the shipping of the world whitening the seas no more, and idly riding at anchor in And as with individuals, so with communities. I meet men who want to wipe off from the page of history all the creeds that ever were constructed If I could think that for nineteen centuries thoughtful, earnest, devout men had been wrestling with the great problems of human life, wondering who God is and how He rules this world, and what we are and what we are here for and what lies in the future, and that in all these centuries they had found out nothing, I should give it up and be an agnostic.
The creeds of the future must grow out of the creeds of the past.
But a creed is not a rock to which your ship is anchored, while it swings back and forth in the tide and the barnacles gather on its bottom. The creed is a seed planted and out of that is to grow a nobler and better creed. No new theology is worth having which cuts asunder from the past.
And no theology is worth having which remains identical with the creeds of the past. The theology that is not a growing theology is a dead theology. Take the experience of the past, and make it minister to the wisdom and the grace—aye, and I dare to say the glory—of the future.
Christianity is the wisdom of love. A God of wrath I cannot love; a God that must be propitiated, adorned, and adored like an idol I cannot respect; and a God who can be blinded to men's iniquities through the week by a little beating of the breast and bowing down on the seventh day, I cannot serve.
I want a Father to whom I can go with all my sins and sorrows, all my hopes and joys, as freely and fearlessly as I used to go to my human father, sure of help and sympathy and love.
Shall I ever find Him? A Story of Experience, Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful.
When the car will not go, he does not attribute its annoying behavior to sin, he does not say, "You are a wicked motorcar, and I shall not give you any more petrol until you go. I think that God could do a lot better, and I'm willing to give Him the chance. Chesterton Religion is speculation pretending to be revelation.
A Story of Experience, The whole point of Christianity is that everyone in the world, from Charles Manson to Mother Teresa, deserves to go to hell.We would like to show you a description here but the site won’t allow us. MaryLinks.
