Vanity is as ill at ease under indifference as tenderness is under a love which it cannot return.

A Quote by George Bernard Shaw on indifference

The worst sin towards our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them: that's the essence of inhumanity.

A Quote by Emil Brunner on belief, buddhism, character, christ, christianity, communication, direction, divinity, faith, god, history, indifference, islam, jesus, life, personality, personality, philosophy, practice, prophets, questions, religion, soul,

For the Platonic or Aristotelian philosophy, it is of no importance whether Plato or Aristotle ever lived. For the mystical practice of an Indian, Persian, Chinese, or Neo-Platonic mystic it is a matter of indifference whether Rama, Buddha, Laotse, or Porphyrius are myths or not. The mystic has no personal relation to them. It is not here a question of somebody telling me the truth which of myself I cannot find, but of my finding an access to the depths of the world in the depths of my soul. And everywhere the tendency is to eliminate personality. Even where religion does not have this mystical character, it has no relation to an historical person, who communicates himself to me. That is the characteristic essence of the Christian faith alone. Even where a prophet plays the role of a mediator of divine truth, as for example in Islam, the religious act is not directed toward him but toward his teaching or message. But the Christian does not believe in the teachings of Jesus - which would not be Christian faith, but general religion - he believes in Christ Himself as being the Word of God.

A Quote by ElRay L. Christiansen on blessings, death, eternity, fatherhood, gifts, glory, guidance, honor, indifference, laws, life, mercy, merit, salvation, and time

So this estate is given each of us to determine whether or not we will merit glory and honor "for ever and ever," or whether we will rebel and refuse or be indifferent and not comply with the conditions and the laws and the ordinances provided by a merciful Father for our guidance through life and our protection and our salvation and thereby, by so doing, deny ourselves the fabulous gift and blessing of eternal life. This life, then, is a time of "sifting," a time when the "wheat" is separated from the "chaff," a time of deciding who is who and where we will live after we die.

The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.

A Quote by Edmund Burke on indifference, infidelity, and religion

Nothing is so fatal to religion as indifference, which is, at least, half infidelity.

A Quote by Delbert L. Stapley on age, belief, body, challenge, character, christ, church, day, divinity, evolution, faith, fatherhood, foolishness, god, indifference, liberals, life, men, sons, spirit, spirituality, truth, and elightenment

In this day of modern liberalism when revealed truth is so frequently questioned and the decrees of God challenged, we, members of the Church, cannot afford to be carried away by the philosophies and sophistries of men's teachings and become complacent and indifferent to such inroads on our faith in divine and spiritual things. Advocates in these fields of man's speculations frequently consider gospel teachings childish-therefore foolish and unsuited for this enlightened age in which we live. Regardless of man's claims to the contrary, God is still God; Christ is His son-His Only Begotten Son in the flesh. He is in the express image of His Father's person, and is our Redeemer, Savior, Lord, and King. The scriptures teach us that we are descended from the lineage of the Gods; therefore, we are created in their likeness and image, in both spirit and body, and we are endowed with like character traits, qualities, and powers. We are not the product of evolution from some lower organism of life as man speculates and would have us believe.
