If you profess to be a Christian, yet find full satisfaction in worldly pleasures and pursuits, your profession is false. Charles Spurgeon

I'm convinced that a large percentage of people that we call worldly Christians are perhaps not Christian to begin with and that may be the trouble. Vance Havner

Life for the Christian is a dialogue with God. J. H. Oldham

Gluttony should be destroyed by self-control; unchastity by desire for God and longing for the blessings held in store; avarice by compassion for the poor; anger by goodwill and love for all men; worldly dejection by spiritual joy; listlessness by patience, perseverance and offering thanks to God; self-esteem by doing good in secret and by praying constantly with a contrite heart; and pride by not judging or despising anyone in the manner of the boastful Pharisee (cf. Lk. 18:11-12), and by considering oneself the least of all men. John of Damascus

Both learned and unlearned young men seldom go to church, and in general do not attend to their spiritual education, looking upon it as unnecessary and giving themselves up to worldly vanity. Attention must be paid to this. It is the fruit of pride... They consider attendance at church and Divine service as the business of the common people and women, forgetting that, in the temple, Angels officiate with trembling, together with men, and regard this as their highest bliss. John of Kronstadt

Every Christian would agree that a man's spiritual health is exactly proportional to his love for God. C S Lewis

If he who has little wit needs a master to inform his stupidity, he who has much frequently needs ten to keep in check his worldly wisdom, which might otherwise, like a high-mettled charger, toss him to the ground. Christian Scriver

We must do worldly jobs, but if we do them with sanctified minds, they become offerings to God. Aiden Wilson Tozer

Every Christian must be fully Christian by bringing God into his whole life, not merely into some spiritual realm. Dietrich Bonhoeffer

The inner attitude of the heart is far more crucial than the mechanics for coming into the reality of the spiritual life. Richard J. Foster

I was almost persuaded to be a Christian. I thought I never again could be thoughtless and worldly. But I soon forgot my morning prayer or else it was irksome to me. One by one my old habits returned and I cared less for religion than ever. Emily Dickinson

Though I cannot claim to be a Christian in the sectarian sense, the example of Jesus suffering is a factor in the composition of my undying faith in non-violence which rules all my actions, worldly and temporal. Mahatma Gandhi

Deny your weakness, and you will never realize God's strength in you. Joni Eareckson Tada

The Christian family is under attack on all fronts. Christian marriages are disintegrating at an alarming rate. Children are not receiving the proper training and modeling from their Christian parents. And, from my perspective, a major contributor to this tragic slide is usually a husband and father who is not fully assuming his God-ordained role as spiritual leader. Jim George

Christians must engage in "spiritual warfare" to combat same-sex marriage. Michele Bachmann

We cannot make up for failure in our devotional life by redoubling energy in service. We shall never take people beyond our own spiritual attainment. William Griffith Thomas

Just as God's love entered the world, thereby submitting to the misunderstanding and ambiguity that characterize everything worldly, so also Christian love does not exist anywhere but in the worldly, in an infinite variety of concrete worldly action, and subject to misunderstanding and condemnation. Every attempt to portray a Christianity of 'pure' love purged of worldly 'impurities' is a false purism and perfectionism that scorns God's becoming human and falls prey to the fate of all ideologies. God was not too pure to enter the world. Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Yes I am, I am also a Muslim, a Christian, a Buddhist, and a Jew. Mahatma Gandhi

Nothing less than a whole Bible can make a whole Christian. Aiden Wilson Tozer

It is impossible for any Christian who spends the bulk of his evenings, month after month, week upon week, day in and day out watching the major TV networks or contemporary videos to have a Christian mind. This is always true of all Christians in every situation! A Biblical mental program cannot coexist with worldly programming. R. Kent Hughes
