salvation

A Quote by John H. Vandenberg on challenge, day, god, knowledge, life, mediocrity, prophets, salvation, science, present, and time

You are challenged to avoid mediocrity, acquire knowledge from the sages of antiquity, the achievements of the scientific present, and the prophets of the living God. Isaiah once spoke as follows, In an acceptable time have I heard thee, and in a day of salvation have I helped thee: . . . Isaiah 49:8. KJV

A Quote by John Donne on charity, church, curiosity, fatherhood, god, jesus, mercy, salvation, sons, and present

To me, to whom God hath revealed his Son, in a Gospel, by a Church, there can be no way of salvation, but by applying that Son of God, by that Gospel, in that Church. Nor is there any other foundation for any, nor other name by which any can be saved, but the name of Jesus. But how this foundation is presented, and how this name of Jesus is notified unto them, amongst whom there is no Gospel preached, no Church established, I am not curious in inquiring. I know that God can be as merciful as those tender Fathers present him to be; and I would be as charitable as they are. And therefore, humbly embracing that manifestation of his Son, which he hath afforded me, I leave God, to his unsearchable ways of working upon others, without further inquisition.

If I relegate impossible Salvation to the prop room, what remains? A whole man, composed of all men and as good as all of them and no better than any.

A Quote by J. Reuben Clark, Jr. on belief, chastity, civilization, concern, death, debauchery, destruction, disease, friendship, life, love, misery, nations, parenthood, past, people, salvation, shame, soul, present, trust, women, and worth

Chastity is fundamental to civilization. If the race becomes unchaste, it will perish. Immorality has been basic to the destruction of mighty nations in the past. It will bring to dust the mighty nations of the present. You young people, may I directly entreat you to be chaste? Please believe me when I say that chastity is worth more than life itself. This is the doctrine my parents taught me; it is true. Better die chaste than live unchaste. The salvation of your very soul is concerned in this. I ask you to believe me whenever a man or woman, young or old, demands as the price of his friendship that you give up the righteous standards of your life, or any of them, that man's friendship is not worth the price he asks. You may not trust that friendship. He will cast it off as he does his worn out coat. Friendship is not now, and never was, the offspring of debauchery or unrighteousness. I ask you young women to believe me further when I say that any young man who demands your chastity as the price of his love is spiritually unclean, and is offering something that is not worth the purchase price. His love will turn to ashes under your touch; it will lead you to misery and shame, and too often, it will curse you with dread disease.

A Quote by Isaac Asimov on fiction, individuality, salvation, and science

Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and philosophers of today - but the core of science fiction, its essence . . . has become crucial to our salvation if we are to be saved at all.

A Quote by Henri Frédéric Amiel on beginning, belief, christianity, death, defeat, divinity, eternity, faith, fatherhood, glory, god, grief, happiness, imitation, joy, love, mystery, nature, pain, power, sacred, sacrifice, salvation, soul, suffering, tea

To curse grief is easier than to bless it, but to do so is to fall back into the point of view of the earthly, the carnal, the natural man. By what has Christianity subdued the world if not by the apotheosis of grief, by its marvelous transmutation of suffering into triumph, of the crown of thorn into the crown of glory, and of gibbet into a symbol of salvation? What does the apotheosis of the Cross mean, if not the death of death, the defeat of sin, the beatification of martyrdom, the raising to the skies of voluntary sacrifice, the defiance of pain? . . . Suffering was a curse from which man fled; now it becomes a purification of the soul, a sacred trial sent by God. Eternal Love, a divine dispensation meant to sanctify and ennoble us, an acceptable aid to faith, a strange imitation into happiness. Power of belief! All remains the same, and yet all is changed. A new certitude arises to deny the apparent and the tangible; it pierces through the mystery of things, it places an invisible Father behind visible nature, it shows us joy shining through tears, and makes of pain the beginning of joy.

A Quote by "Mahatma" Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on control, desires, possessions, salvation, and understanding

I understood . . . that those who desired salvation should act like the trustee who, though having control over great possessions, regards not an iota of them as his own.
