knowledge

A Quote by Elder Ephraim of Philotheou on god, purity, spirit, struggles, fire, nature, soul, enlightenment, light, knowledge, and spirituality

Humble yourselves.  Do not think highly and you will attain high things.  The more gold is tested in the fire, the purer it becomes.  And the Christian, the more he is tried by temptations, the more his soul is purified.  The more deeply the plow tills the earth, the more often we prune and carefully tend the vines, the more and the sweetest fruit we will receive.

Elder Ephraim

A Quote by Saint Simeon the New Theologian on god, sacred, spirit, knowledge, wisdom, man, humility, mindfulness, gifts, and self

  I pray, you brother and sisters: let us strive with every means at our disposal to know ourselves.  Then each one of us, starting with this self knowledge, will be able to discover what is too high for us.  We need know ourselves so well that we can say like David: "I am worm and not a man " (Psalms 22:7) or like Abraham: "I am dust and ashes" (Genesis 18:7).  Otherwise it will be impossible to understand even the smallest part of the Word of God, to interpret it in a spiritual way worthy of the Spirit of wisdom.  Without humility it is not possible to become recipient of the gifts of the Spirit.

Ideas are more powerful than guns. We would not let our enemies have guns, why should we let them have ideas.

A Quote by Saint Ignatios of Antioch on god, christanity, teaching, actions, living, virtues, goodness, spirituality, and knowledge

We recognize a tree by its fruit, and we ought to be able to recognize a Christian by his action.  The fruit of faith should be evident in our lives, for being a Christian is more than making sound professions of faith.  It should reveal itself in practical and visible ways.  Indeed it is better to keep quiet about our beliefs, and live them out, than to talk eloquently about what we believe, but fail to live by it.

A Quote by Saint Anthony the Great on god, christianity, enlightenment, hope, humility, pride, death, knowledge, and power

Learn to love humility, for it will cover all your sins.  All sins are repulsive before God, but the most repulsive of all is pride of the heart.  Do not consider yourself learned and wise; otherwise, all your efforts will be destroyed, and your boat will reach the harbor empty.  If you have great authority, do not threaten anyone with death.  Know that, according to nature, you too are susceptible to death, and that every soul sheds its body as its final garment.
