Godliness quotes by Kevin DeYoung
#4. Related to this first reason is the fear that a passion for holiness makes you some kind of weird holdover from a bygone era. As soon as you share your concern about swearing or about avoiding certain movies or about modesty or sexual purity or self-control or just plain godliness, people look at you like you have a moralistic dab of cream cheese on your face from the 1950s. Believers get nervous that their friends will call them legalistic, prudish, narrow-minded, old fashioned, holier-than-thou - or worst of all, a fundamentalist. #Quote by Kevin DeYoung
Godliness quotes by John Piper
#5. So when the fear of not persevering raises its head, don't try to overcome it by saying, "Oh, there is no danger, we don't need to persevere." You do. There will be no salvation in the end for people who do not fight the good fight and finish the race and keep the faith and treasure Christ's appearing. And don't try to overcome the fear of not persevering by trying to win God's favor by your exertions in godliness. God's favor comes by grace alone, on the basis of Christ alone, in union with Christ alone, through faith alone, to the glory of God alone. He is totally, 100% irrevocably for us because of the work of Christ if we are in Christ. And we are in Christ not by exertions but by receiving him as our sacrifice and perfection and Treasure. #Quote by John Piper
Godliness quotes by Tom Hodgkinson
#6. There's nothing new about anti-work philosophy. History is dotted with individuals and groups who decided that laziness was next to godliness and work was a waste of time. #Quote by Tom Hodgkinson
Godliness quotes by Joseph Telushkin
#7. The Rebbe now spoke in a manner that anticipated the work that was later to be done by the shluchim whom he dispatched throughout the United States and the world: "One must go to a place where nothing is known of Godliness, nothing is known of Judaism, nothing is even known of the Hebrew alphabet, and while there, put one's own self aside and ensure that the other calls out to God! . . . Indeed, if one wants to ensure his own connection to God, he must make sure that the other person not only becomes familiar with but actually calls out to God!" It was not enough, it was never enough, to simply practice Judaism by oneself or in an already religiously observant community; one has to bring others to embrace God as well #Quote by Joseph Telushkin
Godliness quotes by Sinclair Lewis
#8. Humor is next to Godliness. #Quote by Sinclair Lewis
Godliness quotes by Joseph Fielding Smith
#9. We must endure to the end; ... We must so live as to acquire the attributes of godliness and become the kind of people who can enjoy the glory and wonders of the celestial kingdom. #Quote by Joseph Fielding Smith
Godliness quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#10. Godliness is the root of cleanliness. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Godliness quotes by Paul David Washer
#11. The proof or validation of genuine conversion is that the one who professes faith in Christ perseveres in that faith and grows in sanctification throughout the full course of his life. If a person professes faith in Christ and yet falls away or makes no progress in godliness, it does not mean that he has lost his salvation. It reveals that he was never truly converted. #Quote by Paul David Washer
Godliness quotes by Donald S. Whitney
#12. And in my own pastoral and personal Christian experience, I can say that I've never known a man or woman who came to spiritual maturity except through discipline. Godliness comes through discipline. #Quote by Donald S. Whitney
Godliness quotes by Beth Moore
#13. Now you, man of God, run from these things; but pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance, and gentleness. 1 Timothy 6:11 #Quote by Beth Moore
Godliness quotes by Alistair Begg
#14. People may not be impressed by our theological grasp, but they may be impressed by our expressions of practical godliness. #Quote by Alistair Begg
Godliness quotes by Alistair Begg
#15. If truth were told, most of us spend longer each day on personal cleanliness than on practical godliness. #Quote by Alistair Begg
Godliness quotes by Charles Spurgeon
#16. Beware, I pray thee, of presuming that thou art saved. If thy heart be renewed, if thou shalt hate the things that thou didst once love, and love the things that thou didst once hate; if thou hast really repented; if there be a thorough change of mind in thee; if thou be born again, then hast thou reason to rejoice: but if there be no vital change, no inward godliness; if there be no love to God, no prayer, no work of the Holy Spirit, then thy saying "I am saved" is but thine own assertion, and it may delude, but it will not deliver thee. #Quote by Charles Spurgeon
Godliness quotes by Francis Bacon
#17. Certainly this is a duty, not a sin. Cleanliness is indeed next to godliness. #Quote by Francis Bacon
Godliness quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#18. Stale godliness is ungodliness. Let our religion be as warm, and constant, and natural as the flow of the blood in our veins. A living God must be served in a living way. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Godliness quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#19. Keep yourself simple, good, pure, serious, and unassuming; the friend of justice and godliness; kindly, affectionate, and resolute in your devotion to duty. #Quote by Marcus Aurelius

#20. Make God's glory your object in life; live in his sight; dwell close to him; seek for fellowship with him; and thou hast "godliness"; #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Godliness quotes by Elizabeth George
#21. When it comes to yourself, follow God's formula-
deny yourself of overindulgence (Proverbs 23:2 and 30:8),
examine yourself for any sinful habits (1 Corinthians 11:28),
% exercise yourself to godliness (1 Timothy 4:7), and
IK- develop self-control (Galatians 5:23). #Quote by Elizabeth George
Godliness quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#22. Not to believe in the possibility of permanent peace is to disbelieve in the Godliness of human nature. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Godliness quotes by K.P. Yohannan
#23. God's word tells us that righteousness is a gift; it cannot be earned. But godliness is not a gift. We must pay a price to touch godliness through a daily decision to die to self and embrace the cross. God calls us to learn godliness in the classroom of life among people as we sit on airplanes and buses, walk among our neighbors and labor at our factories or desks. #Quote by K.P. Yohannan
Godliness quotes by Matthew Donnelly
#24. When you're one with being you're one with god. #Quote by Matthew Donnelly
Godliness quotes by Anonymous
#25. 6Now godliness with contentment is great gain. #Quote by Anonymous
Godliness quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#26. I have a conscience; and conscience is always anxiously explanatory. You, on the contrary, feel that a man who discusses his conscience is much like a woman who discusses her modesty. The only moral force you condescend to parade is the force of your wit: the only demand you make in public is the demand of your artistic temperament for symmetry, elegance, style, grace, refinement, and the cleanliness which comes next to godliness if not before it. But my conscience is the genuine pulpit article: it annoys me to see people comfortable when they ought to be uncomfortable; and I insist on making them think in order to bring them to conviction of sin. If you don't like my preaching you must lump it. I really cannot help it. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Godliness quotes by V.C. Andrews
#28. room confirmed the view I had of myself. I always felt as if I had been placed in storage in this house. However, regardless of what it was and what it had been, the room had to be kept as immaculate as any other. My grandmother was fully convinced that cleanliness was next to godliness and was fond of chanting it at me whenever she ordered me to polish or wash #Quote by V.C. Andrews
Godliness quotes by Israelmore Ayivor
#29. Let your hands be clean; God loves clean hands and no wonder cleanliness is next to Godliness. #Quote by Israelmore Ayivor
Godliness quotes by Maya Angelou

Godliness quotes by Jerry Bridges
#31. Every day that we're not practicing godliness we're being conformed to the world of ungodliness around us. #Quote by Jerry Bridges
Godliness quotes by Rajneesh
#32. Your absence is the presence of godliness. #Quote by Rajneesh
Godliness quotes by Elyse Fitzpatrick
#33. In your pursuit of godliness, have you left Jesus behind? #Quote by Elyse Fitzpatrick
Godliness quotes by Rabb Jyot
#34. As I began painting myself, I
started making connection with
all that was painted around me.

With further immersion into it,
my connection deepened and
I was simply transformed from the
painter to the canvas itself
all observing, all absorbing #Quote by Rabb Jyot
Godliness quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#35. If we desire to be close to Spirit of God, we desire to dwell in clean soul with a clean body. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Godliness quotes by Criss Jami
#36. There is not one harsher, more sure-fire way to fail than that of the man who tries to be like Jesus without submitting to Jesus. #Quote by Criss Jami
Godliness quotes by Baba Tunde Ojo-Olubiyo
#37. The Truth Is That I Was Recognized For Stubbornness And Not Goodness. Even, Though I Was Very Intelligent And Sent To School By A Little Few Supports From Sponsors And My Mother. My Brain Was Never Ever Cool. Due To All The Mistakes I Saw From A Very Tender Age From All Those Whom I Looked Upon As Elders And Shinning Examples. Although They Where Some Good Examples Which Still Live On. Still The Early Damaged As Already Been Done. So It Led Me Dropping Out Of School In To Working And Using The Great Ancient Vedic Philosophies I Have Been Hearing From The Very Beginning Of My Conception In My Mother Womb Till The Day I Was Born And Forever. I Used Them All To Materialize Many Of My Dreams And Practice Mysticism Coupled With Spiritualism To Keep My Self Secured And Keep Cool Depending On God. #Quote by Baba Tunde Ojo-Olubiyo
Godliness quotes by Kevin DeYoung
#38. The mystery of the Christian life is that Christ expects us to flee sin and the devil, but does not expect us to rid ourselves of either on this side of glory. Repentance is a way of life, and so is the pursuit of godliness. I wish every Christian could be reminded of these two things. #Quote by Kevin DeYoung
Godliness quotes by Jonathan Edwards
#39. Godliness is more easily feigned in words than in actions #Quote by Jonathan Edwards
Godliness quotes by Anonymous
#40. 20Now may the God of peace who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant, 21equip you with everything good that you may do his will, working in us [1] that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen. #Quote by Anonymous
Godliness quotes by William Penn
#41. True Godliness doesn't turn men out of the world, but enables them to live better in it, and excites their endeavors to mend it ... We have nothing that we can call our own; no, not our selves: for we are all but Tenants, and at Will, too, of the great Lord of our selves, and the rest of this great farm, the World that we live upon. #Quote by William Penn
Godliness quotes by Andrew Murray
#42. Here is the life of holiness as the Thrice Holy gives it: the Father, the first, the Holy One, making holy; the Son, the second, His Holy One, in whom we are; the Spirit, the third, who dwells in us, and through whom we abide in Christ, and Christ in us. Thus it is that the Thrice Holy makes us holy. [ ... ]
Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, (2 Peter 3:11, KJV). #Quote by Andrew Murray
Godliness quotes by Carlo Zen
#43. If you're claiming to be the Supreme Being (even if you're not doing a very good job at it), I wish you were a bit more mentally mature. #Quote by Carlo Zen
Godliness quotes by Joseph Smith Jr.
#44. For, behold, the mystery of godliness, how great is it! For, behold, I am endless, and the punishment which is given from my hand is endless punishment, for Endless is my name. Wherefore - 11 Eternal punishment is God's punishment. 12 Endless punishment is God's punishment. #Quote by Joseph Smith Jr.
Godliness quotes by Henry Ward Beecher
#45. Truthfulness is godliness. #Quote by Henry Ward Beecher
Godliness quotes by Dan Groat
#46. Despite his best efforts, maintaining dignity in a head attached to an unclean body wrapped in unclean garments was a battle that encouraged surrender. #Quote by Dan Groat
Godliness quotes by Thomas Watson
#47. The serious thoughts of our short stay here would be a great means of promoting godliness. What if death should come before we are ready? What if our life should breathe out before God's Spirit has breathed in? Whoever considers how flitting and winged his life is, will hasten his repentance! #Quote by Thomas Watson
Godliness quotes by Alistair Begg
#48. If you live in such a manner as to stand the test of the last judgment, you can depend upon it that the world will not speak well of you. #Quote by Alistair Begg
Godliness quotes by Pat Conroy
#49. Saints make wonderful grandfathers and lousy husbands. #Quote by Pat Conroy
Godliness quotes by Samuel Johnson
#50. He that is warm for truth, and fearless in its defense, performs one of the duties of a good man; he strenghtens his own conviction, and guards others from delusion; but steadiness of belief, and boldness of profession, are yet only part of the form of godliness. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Godliness quotes by Various
#51. And that in this backsliding day, we might not spend our breath in fruitless complaints of the evils of others; but may everyone begin at home, to reform in the first place our own hearts, and ways; and then to quicken all that we may have influence upon, to the same work that if the will of God were so, none might deceive themselves, by resting in, and trusting to, a form of godliness, without the power of it, and inward experience of the efficacy of those truths that are professed by them. #Quote by Various
Godliness quotes by Elizabeth Goudge
#52. Cleanliness', chuckled Sir Benjamin, noting his great niece's delighted smile as her eyes rested upon him, 'comes next to godliness, eh, Maria? #Quote by Elizabeth Goudge
Godliness quotes by Michael Brent Jones
#53. Our purpose in mortality collectively, is to pioneer godliness; with each of our unique personalities and perspectives, we are searching out the pieces of the divine puzzle.
Possibly before this life is over, but certainly after, there will be a great collaboration, and we will all bring our pieces of the puzzle together that we have found. Each piece on its own is quite an odd spectacle, but together they are beautiful and amazing - the whole mystery of mortality and eternal life.
'What pieces are you holding? What good have you found? Bring it together and we will all rejoice. #Quote by Michael Brent Jones
Godliness quotes by Jerry Bridges
#54. Our goal in the pursuit of godliness should be to grow more in our conscious awareness that every moment of our lives is lived in the presence of God; that we are responsible to Him and dependent on Him. This goal would include a growing desire to please Him and glorify Him in the most ordinary activities of life. Of #Quote by Jerry Bridges
Godliness quotes by Jonathan Edwards
#55. Christian practice is that evidence which confirms every other indication of true godliness. #Quote by Jonathan Edwards
Godliness quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#56. Precisely this is godliness
that there are gods, but no God. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Godliness quotes by Osho
#57. Love is prayerfulness groping toward godliness. Love is poetry born out of the sheer joy of being. Love is song, dance, celebration: a song of gratitude, a dance of thankfulness, celebration for no reason at all, for this tremendous gift that goes on showering on us, for this whole universe, from the dust to the divine. #Quote by Osho
Godliness quotes by Rajneesh
#58. Creativity itself is divine. Creativity itself is godliness. #Quote by Rajneesh
Godliness quotes by Anonymous
#59. 5For this very reason make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, 6and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, 7and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. 8For if these things are yours and abound, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9For whoever lacks these things is blind and shortsighted and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins. #Quote by Anonymous
Godliness quotes by Aiden Wilson Tozer
#60. What does this word holiness really mean? Is it a negative kind of piety from which so many people have shied away? No, of course not! Holiness in the Bible means moral wholeness
a positive quality which actually includes kindness, mercy, purity, moral blamelessness and godliness. It is always to be thought of in a positive, white intensity of degree. #Quote by Aiden Wilson Tozer
Godliness quotes by John Banville
#61. The sentence is the great invention of civilization. To sit all day long assembling these extraordinary strings of words is a marvelous thing. I couldn't ask for anything better. It's as near to godliness as I can get. #Quote by John Banville
Godliness quotes by Robyn Davidson
#62. In every religion I can think of, there exists some variation on the theme of abandoning the settled life and walking one's way to godliness. The Hindu sadhu, the pilgrims of Compostela walking past their sins, the circumambulators of the Buddhist kora, the haj. #Quote by Robyn Davidson
Godliness quotes by Dwight L. Moody
#63. God will not accept a divided heart. He must be absolute monarch. There is not room in your heart for two thrones. You cannot mix the worship of the true God with the worship of any other god more than you can mix oil and water. It cannot be done. There is not room for any other throne in the heart if Christ is there. If worldliness should come in, godliness would go out. #Quote by Dwight L. Moody
Godliness quotes by George Muller
#64. Let me here add a word of Christian counsel. To enter upon the marriage union is one of the most deeply important events of life. It cannot be too prayerfully treated. Our happiness, our usefulness, our living for God or for ourselves afterwards, are often most intimately connected with our choice. Therefore, in the most prayerful manner, this choice should be made. Neither beauty, nor age, nor money, nor mental powers, should be that which prompt the decision; but 1st, Much waiting upon God for guidance should be used; 2nd, A hearty purpose, to be willing to be guided by Him should be aimed after; 3rd, True godliness without a shadow of doubt, should be the first and absolutely needful qualification, to a Christian, with regard to a companion for life. In addition to this, however, it ought to be, at the same time, calmly and patiently weighed, whether, in other respects, there is a suitableness. For #Quote by George Muller
Godliness quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#65. Once the lotus of your inner divinity gets full-blown and you reach the mental state where all the religious giants of human history experienced the all-encompassing sense of godliness, the exuberance of the human mind turns infinite. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Godliness quotes by Gregory Of Nyssa
#66. There is one antidote for evil passions: the purification of our souls which takes place through the mystery of godliness. The chief act of faith in this mystery is to look to Him who suffered the passion for us. The cross is the passion, so that whoever looks to it? is not harmed by the poison of desire. To look to the cross means to render one's whole life dead and crucified to the world. #Quote by Gregory Of Nyssa
Godliness quotes by Kingsley Opuwari Manuel
#67. The purpose of salt is to change the nature of what it invades without calling attention to itself. Attracting attention to yourself in the Kingdom of God is like seducing the bride because you are the best man of the groom. #Quote by Kingsley Opuwari Manuel
Godliness quotes by Charles Spurgeon
#68. Alas! Much has been done of late to promote the production of dwarfish Christians. Poor, sickly believers turn the church into an hospital, rather than an army. Oh, to have a church built up with the deep godliness of people who know the Lord in their very hearts, and will seek to follow the Lamb wherever he goes! #Quote by Charles Spurgeon
Godliness quotes by Jada Pinkett Smith
#69. I learned that surrounding myself with people who are able to help me is like being surrounded by tangible godliness. #Quote by Jada Pinkett Smith
Godliness quotes by Martin Luther
#70. The believing man hath the Holy Ghost; and where the Holy Ghost dwelleth, He will not suffer a man to be idle, butstirreth him up to all exercises of piety and godliness, and of true religion, to the love of God, to the patient suffering of afflictions, to prayer, to thanksgiving, and the exercise of charity towards all men. #Quote by Martin Luther
Godliness quotes by Daniel R. Hyde

Godliness quotes by Rajneesh
#72. If you are a man of prayer, existence appears as God, as personal. If you are a man of meditation, existence is impersonal, just a wholeness, a divineness. For the man of prayer there is God; for the man of awareness there is godliness but no God. #Quote by Rajneesh
Godliness quotes by Matt Chandler, Jared C. Wilson
#73. Nobody stumbles into godliness. Ever. #Quote by Matt Chandler, Jared C. Wilson
Godliness quotes by Gregory Palamas
#74. We commemorate each of the saints with hymns and appropriate songs of praise, how much more should we celebrate the memory of Peter and Paul, the supreme Leaders of the pre-eminent company of the Apostles? They are the fathers and guides of all Christians: Apostles, martyrs, holy ascetics, priests, hierarchs, pastors and teachers. As chief shepherds and master builders of our common godliness and virtue, they tend and teach us all, like lights in the world, holding forth the word of life. #Quote by Gregory Palamas
Godliness quotes by Neale Donald Walsch
#75. Be a light unto the world, and hurt it not. Seek to build not destroy. Bring My people home.


By your shining example. Seek only Godliness. Speak only in truthfulness. Act only in love.
Live the Law of Love now and forever more. Give everything require nothing.
Avoid the mundane.
Do not accept the unacceptable.
Teach all who seek to learn of Me.
Make every moment of your life an outpouring of love.
Use every moment to think the highest thought, say the highest word, do the highest deed. In this, glorify your Holy Self, and thus too, glorify Me.
Bring peace to the Earth by bringing peace to all those whose lives you touch. Be peace. Feel and express in every moment your Divine Connection with the All, and with every person, place, and thing.
Embrace every circumstance, own every fault, share every joy, contemplate every mystery, walk in every man's shoes, forgive every offense (including your own), heal every heart, honor every person's truth, adore every person's God, protect every person's rights, preserve every person's dignity, promote every person's interests, provide every person's needs, presume every person's holiness, present every person's greatest gifts, produce every person's blessing, pronounce every person's future secure in the assured love of God.
Be a living, breathing example of the Highest Truth that resides within you. Speak humbly of yourself, lest someone mistake your Highes #Quote by Neale Donald Walsch
Godliness quotes by Faith L. Justice
#76. I am constantly amazed by how little difference there is between religions.' Selene sighed. 'It seems the arguments are always over the details. Mary or Isis, Jesus or Horus. Maybe Hypatia is right and names don't matter, just the search for godliness in the life we live. #Quote by Faith L. Justice
Godliness quotes by Dylan Callens
#77. There's Buddha. If ever I met a hippy-slacker-God, it's Buddha. Just yesterday I had this strange run in with him. 'Buddha bless you,' he says to me. Out of the blue. So I ask him, 'Why do you refer to yourself in the third person?' He smiled at me, his eyes bloodshot and half-closed. #Quote by Dylan Callens
Godliness quotes by Alejandro C. Estrada
#78. If Prophets and Messengers are the closest to godliness as any human is capable of being, and yet even they fail, how the fuck can anyone, less than perfect, be so arrogant as to expect they will do better than a Prophet, or Messenger of G-D. #Quote by Alejandro C. Estrada
Godliness quotes by Alistair Begg
#79. When my children hear godliness out of my mouth and they see wickedness in my life, then I point them to heaven and I lead them to hell. #Quote by Alistair Begg
Godliness quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#80. Don't judge men's wealth or godliness by their Sunday appearance. #Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Godliness quotes by Arthur Tappan Pierson
#81. If missions languish, it is because the whole life of godliness is feeble. The command to go everywhere and preach to everybody is not obeyed until the will is lost by self-surrender in the will of God. Living, praying, giving and going will always be found together. #Quote by Arthur Tappan Pierson
Godliness quotes by C.F.W. Walther
#82. The Gospel does not require anything good that man must furnish: not a good heart, not a good disposition, no improvement of his condition, no godliness, no love either of God or men ... ... .. It plants love into his heart and makes him capable of all good works. It demands nothing, but it gives all. Should not this fact make us leap for JOY? #Quote by C.F.W. Walther
Godliness quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#83. Friendliness is next to godliness. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Godliness quotes by Jodi Ellen Malpas
#84. No!" I push him away from me. "You're not manipulating me with your delicious Godliness!"
He grins that roguish grin. "You think I'm a God?"
I huff, turning back to the mirror. His head is expanding at a rate so fast, I might be forced to jump out the bathroom window before I'm squashed against a wall. #Quote by Jodi Ellen Malpas
Godliness quotes by R.C. Sproul
#85. God is not interested in our public displays of piety. He's not interested in religion in terms of the outward show. He's interested in godliness. #Quote by R.C. Sproul
Godliness quotes by Thomas Case
#86. If we are taught by God in affliction we are blessed. When God teaches, he applies his instruction to the heart. He commands light to shine out of darkness (2 Corinthians 4:6). The Holy Spirit brings divine truths in such a clear and convincing light that the soul sits down fully satisfied. The soul both sweetly and freely acquiesces in the revealed truths. When God teaches, the soul experiences truth as David (Psalm 119:71). Some only know notionally, but David knew by experience; he became more acquainted with the Word. He knew it more, loved it better, and was more transformed in the nature of it. Thus, Paul, "I know who I have believed" (2 Timothy 1:12) – "I have experienced his faithfulness and his all-sufficiency; I can trust my all with him. I am sure he will keep it safe to that day." Those taught of God in affliction can speak experimentally, in one degree or another. They can speak of their communion with God (Psalm 23:4). The sweet singer of Israel had comfortable presence. Those taught of God can say: "As we have heard, so we have seen. I have experienced this word upon mine heart, and can set my seal that God is true." God's teaching is a powerful teaching. It conveys strength as well as light. Truth only understood needs to be put into action and practice. God's teachings are sweet to the taste. David rolled them as sugar under his tongue, and received more sweetness than Samson from his honeycomb. Luther said he would not live in paradise without the Word, but #Quote by Thomas Case
Godliness quotes by Margaret Atwood
#87. I will that women adorn themselves in modest apparel," he says, "with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with braided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; "But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works. "Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection." Here he looks us over. "All," he repeats. "But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. "For Adam was first formed, then Eve. "And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. "Notwithstanding she shall be saved by childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety." Saved #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Godliness quotes by Pope Clement I
#88. Let us cleave ... to those who cultivate peace with godliness, and not to those who hypocritically profess to desire it. For the Scripture says in a certain place (Mk. 7:6), 'This people honors Me with their lips, but their hearts is far from Me.' #Quote by Pope Clement I
Godliness quotes by Rudolf Hess
#89. The dogmatist will listen to everyone's opinion, and then affirm to himself his godliness. #Quote by Rudolf Hess
Godliness quotes by Amit Ray
#90. My spirituality is the spirituality of love. You give love to the Universe and the Universe reflect back the refined love back to you. Because love is all-pervading, divine, and the ultimate Godliness. #Quote by Amit Ray
Godliness quotes by William Gurnall
#91. Godliness is the child of truth, and it must be nursed by its own mother. #Quote by William Gurnall
Godliness quotes by Erma Bombeck
#92. Cleanliness is not next to godliness. It isn't even in the same neighborhood. No one has ever gotten a religious experience out of removing burned-on cheese from the grill of the toaster oven. #Quote by Erma Bombeck
Godliness quotes by Euginia Herlihy
#93. God will restore the South African economy and He will heal our beautiful land because He is an unchanging and forgiving God. He is the same God who liberated us from decades and decades of racial struggle. Let's come together in one, seek for His forgiveness and admit that we really messed up big time. Let's also pray 'for all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.' His mercies are new every morning. #Quote by Euginia Herlihy
Godliness quotes by Elyse M. Fitzpatrick
#94. Paul believed that self-control was so important that when he had opportunity to witness to a very important ruler, it was one of the three main topics he spoke about.3 But Paul wasn't the only one who talked about it. Peter also
wrote about self-control and said that it helps us to avoid becoming useless and unfruitful. He wrote that Christians are to strive diligently to grow in moral excellence, knowledge, self-control, perseverance, godliness, brotherly kindness and love (2 Peter 1:5-7). All of these virtues are intertwined and are necessary for your usefulness and fruitfulness to Christ. Growing in these qualities is so important that "he who lacks these qualities is blind or short-sighted, having forgotten his purification from his former sins" (2 Peter 1:9). #Quote by Elyse M. Fitzpatrick
Godliness quotes by Wayne A. Grudem
#95. It is right that we long to be in the fellowship of God's people in which God's character is manifested, for when we delight in the godliness of God's people, we are ultimately delighting in God himself as we see his character evidenced in the lives of his people. #Quote by Wayne A. Grudem
Godliness quotes by William Morley Punshon
#96. Young men, you who have any piety at all, what sort is it? Is it a hot-house plant, which must be framed and glassed, lest March, that bold young fellow, should shake the life out.of it in his rough play among the flowers? or is it a hardy shrub, which rejoices when the wild winds course along the heather or howl above the crest of Lebanon ' We need, believe me, the bravery of godliness to bear true witness for our Master now. #Quote by William Morley Punshon
Godliness quotes by Naomi Wolf
#97. Female thinness and youth are not in themselves next to godliness in this culture. Society really doesn't care about women's appearance per se. What genuinely matters is that women remain willing to let others tell them what they can and cannot have. Women are watched, in other words, not to make sure that they will "be good," but to make sure that they will know they are being watched. #Quote by Naomi Wolf
Godliness quotes by Russell D. Moore
#98. If outrage were a sign of godliness, then the devil would be the godliest soul in Creation. #Quote by Russell D. Moore
Godliness quotes by A.D. Aliwat
#99. Organization is a masculine trait, cleanliness a feminine one. Cleanliness is next to godliness because manliness is godliness. #Quote by A.D. Aliwat

#100. The world provides no cheerleaders on the pathway to godliness. #Quote by Kevin DeYoung
Godliness quotes by Rajneesh
#101. The West has enough technology, enough science, enough affluence, enough money, but something of the inner is missing. There is no peace, no silence, no joy, no bliss, no meditativeness, no experience of godliness. #Quote by Rajneesh
Godliness quotes by Hosea Ballou

#103. To live your life without the need for specific results is true freedom. That is Godliness. That is how God exists. #Quote by Manoj Arora
Godliness quotes by Susan Gayle
#104. She was raw. This is why she hurt most of her life. If she was mad, you'd know it. If she was happy, you'd know it. If she was sad, you'd know it. She lived life without hypocrisy. She saw people for themselves, not the cost of the fabric on their back or the size of their diamond or how much money they had in their bank accounts or what model of car they drove. It was black or white. You were bad or good. You were bad if you lied and stole. You were good if you told the truth and worked for your needs and desires. Simple as that. Regardless of peoples' baggage, if they were good, she could see it. She believed in the goodness of people because she came from a place of honesty and godliness. #Quote by Susan Gayle
Godliness quotes by Donald Miller
#105. I used to get really ticked about preachers who talked too much about grace, because they tempted me to not be disciplined. I figured what people needed was a kick in the butt, and if I failed at godliness it was because those around me weren't trying hard enough. #Quote by Donald Miller
Godliness quotes by Martha Finley
#106. Horace Dinsmore was, like his father, an upright, moral man, who paid an outward respect to the forms of religion, but cared nothing for the vital power of godliness ... #Quote by Martha Finley

#107. Good is god and discrimination is demon. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Godliness quotes by Harvey Milk
#108. Let's make no mistake about this: The American Dream starts with the neighborhoods. If we wish to rebuild our cities, we must first rebuild our neighborhoods. And to do that, we must understand that the quality of life is more important than the standard of living. To sit on the front steps--whether it's a veranda in a small town or a concrete stoop in a big city--and to talk to our neighborhoods is infinitely more important than to huddle on the living-room lounger and watch a make-believe world in not-quite living color.


And I hardly need to tell you that in the 19- or 24-inch view of the world, cleanliness has long since eclipsed godliness. Soon we'll all smell, look, and actually be laboratory clean, as sterile on the inside as on the out. The perfect consumer, surrounded by the latest appliances. The perfect audience, with a ringside seat to almost any event in the world, without smell, without taste, without feel--alone and unhappy in the vast wasteland of our living rooms. I think that what we actually need, of course, is a little more dirt on the seat of our pants as we sit on the front stoop and talk to our neighbors once again, enjoying the type of summer day where the smell of garlic travels slightly faster than the speed of sound. #Quote by Harvey Milk
Godliness quotes by J.I. Packer
#109. Godliness means responding to God's revelation in trust and obedience, faith and worship, prayer and praise, submission and service. Life must be seen and lived in the light of God's Word. This, and nothing else, is true religion. #Quote by J.I. Packer
Godliness quotes by Barbara Marx Hubbard
#110. My beloved church misunderstood me. It preached the corruptibility of humanity when I came to demonstrate its potential for incorruptibility. It propounded the sinfulness of humanity when I suffered to reveal your godliness and to overcome your guilt by demonstrating that you can totally rise above the death of the body. #Quote by Barbara Marx Hubbard
Godliness quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#111. Anyone with a form of godliness is promoting ungodliness, whether ignorantly or knowingly. #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Godliness quotes by Adam Nicolson
#112. T's [King James Bible] subject is majesty, not tyranny, and it's political purpose was unifying and enfolding, to elide the kingliness of God with the godliness of kings, to make royal power and divine glory into one invisible garment which could be wrapped around the nation as a whole. #Quote by Adam Nicolson

#115. The meek don't give up their power to "win" in order to be godly--they give up using their power to harm. #Quote by Katy Kauffman
Godliness quotes by Isaac Newton
#116. Opposite to godliness is atheism in profession, and idolatry in practice. Atheism is so senseless and odious to mankind, that it never had many professors. #Quote by Isaac Newton
Godliness quotes by Anonymous
#117. Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity. 3 This is good and pleases God our Savior, 4 who wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth. 5 For, There is one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity - the man Christ Jesus. 6 He gave his life to purchase freedom for everyone. This is the message God gave to the world at just the right time. #Quote by Anonymous
Godliness quotes by Charles R. Swindoll
#118. Thanksgiving speaks in clear, crisp tones of forgotten terms, like integrity - bravery - respect - freedom - discipline - sacrifice - godliness. #Quote by Charles R. Swindoll
Godliness quotes by Jerry Bridges
#119. The fruit of patience in all its aspects - long-suffering, forbearance, endurance, and perseverance - is a fruit that is most intimately associated with our devotion to God. All character traits of godliness grow out of and have their foundation in our devotion to God, but the fruit of patience must grow out of that relationship in a particular way. #Quote by Jerry Bridges
Godliness quotes by David Vaughan
#120. Instead of working from a place of favour and out of a secure identity, we worked for favour and to have an identity! Our reason for living wasn't life itself. We weren't satisfied with the life that we had, so we did all we could to disengage from life and in so doing created for ourselves some sort of false world which was only relevant to those living in it! No wonder guys wanted nothing to do with us. No wonder our families and old friends thought that we had totally lost the plot and feared for our sanity! Religion is no different the world over, they honour what their traditions say are relevant and in so doing they make themselves irrelevant to all around them! A form of godliness but with no real power! #Quote by David Vaughan

Godliness quotes by Rajneesh
#122. Meditation has to spread all over your life. Whatsoever you do, do meditatively. Walk meditatively, eat meditatively. If you are making love, make love meditatively. Meditation has to become your life twenty-four hours a day; then only the transformation. Then you go beyond sex, you go beyond body, you go beyond mind. And for the first time you become aware of godliness, of ecstasy, of bliss, of truth, of liberation. #Quote by Rajneesh
Godliness quotes by John Steinbeck

#126. Godliness is practical religion. #Quote by Orville Dewey
Godliness quotes by Kevin DeYoung
#127. There is a gap between our love for the gospel and our love for godliness. This must change. It's not pietism, legalism, or fundamentalism to take holiness seriously. It's the way of all those who have been called to a holy calling by a holy God. #Quote by Kevin DeYoung
Godliness quotes by Paramahansa Yogananda
#128. Cleanliness is next to Godliness," but baptism of the body, unless followed by baptism of the mind, becomes practically meaningless. If we bathe and thus purify our bodies, we will find that our mind will temporarily become purified, but unless we change our soul's wickedness by calmness, and meditation, and constant spiritual vigilance, we will remain the same old devils with bad habits in spite of the temporary purifying effect of the water on
our bodies. #Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda
Godliness quotes by D. A. Carson
#129. People do not drift toward Holiness. Apart from grace-driven effort, people do not gravitate toward godliness, prayer, obedience to Scripture, faith, and delight in the Lord. We drift toward compromise and call it tolerance; we drift toward disobedience and call it freedom; we drift toward superstition and call it faith. We cherish the indiscipline of lost self-control and call it relaxation; we slouch toward prayerlessness and delude ourselves into thinking we have escaped legalism; we slide toward godlessness and convince ourselves we have been liberated. #Quote by D. A. Carson
Godliness quotes by Rajneesh
#130. What exists is a godly existence, a divine existence. God not as a person but as a presence certainly exists. But to understand that presence, you have to understand your own inner presence first, because it is from there that you can take off, it is from there that you can have the first glimpse of what godliness is. If you have not known yourself you will never know God. #Quote by Rajneesh

Godliness quotes by Jamie Arpin-Ricci
#133. In most of the Western world, where Christianity still enjoys a significant amount of privilege, especially when practiced by middle-class, white Christians, Jesus is seen as the heroic figure, the ultimate example of godliness, holiness, mercy, compassion, and justice - as well he should! He is God-made-flesh, after all. However, given that, when we identify with Jesus in the act of foot washing where we take the role of Jesus, all too often we are unconsciously (though sometimes all too consciously) assuming those characteristics onto ourselves. In trying to be Jesus to others, we can assume a posture of spiritual superiority and/or paternalism. The recipients of our service, "the least of these", are then seen as the needy recipients of our goodness. Again, while affirming the value in such acts of humble service, too often miss how such posturing fails to recognize the radical presence of Christ as "the least of these". #Quote by Jamie Arpin-Ricci
Godliness quotes by William Carey
#134. Prayer - secret, fervent, believing prayer - lies at the root of all personal godliness. #Quote by William Carey
Godliness quotes by J.I. Packer
#135. The psalmist [of Psalm 119] was interested in truth and orthodoxy, in biblical teaching and theology, not as ends in themselves, but as means to the further ends of life and godliness. His ultimate concern was with the knowledge and service of the great God whose truth he sought to understand (pp. 22-23). #Quote by J.I. Packer

Godliness quotes by Margaret Thatcher
#137. I was brought up by a Victorian Grandmother. We were taught to work jolly hard. We were taught to prove yourself; we were taught self reliance; we were taught to live within our income. You were taught that cleanliness is next to Godliness. You were taught self respect. You were taught always to give a hand to your neighbour. You were taught tremendous pride in your country. All of these things are Victorian values. They are also perennial values. You don't hear so much about these things these days, but they were good values and they led to tremendous improvements in the standard of living. #Quote by Margaret Thatcher
Godliness quotes by Henry Allen Ironside
#138. Godliness has 'promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.' But the only way one can enter into godliness is by turning to God as a repentant sinner and receiving the Saviour He has provided in the Gospel. Therefore the crying need of our degenerate times is for a revival of true old-fashioned, Christ- centered, Bible preaching that will call upon all men everywhere to repent in view of that coming day when God will judge the world in righteousness by His Risen Son. #Quote by Henry Allen Ironside
Godliness quotes by Michael Brent Jones
#139. Let this change you. Let this take hold in the very center of your soul. Write it on the walls of your heart. Let this emanate through every part of you, and trickle into every aspect of your life.
You were not designed to be merely a good person, but that through the experience of mortality you could embrace the divinity you were created with. I do not merely want you to get along with others, but for everyone to be one, and one in me. Not for my glory, but that the glory of godliness will exalt you to a higher plane of existence, beyond anything you've ever imagined.
Throw out weakness and fear; rid yourself of those spoiled garments. Adorn yourself with new garments, spotless and pure. Be reborn. Set your hand to the plow and look not back. Take that first step onto the water; do not fear the wind or the waves, for it is I your Lord and Savior who beckon you. Listen o listen to my voice, which is the voice of the Good Sheppard who calls you; for why should ye parish for naught?'
Parker, the bar has been set, for you and for I, and all the rest of humanity should we chose to accept the invitation," Flavius concluded powerfully. #Quote by Michael Brent Jones

Godliness quotes by Arthur W. Pink
#142. To realize that the Holy Scriptures are a revelation from the Most High, communicating to us His mind and defining for us His will, is the first step toward practical godliness. To recognize that the Bible is God's Word, and that its precepts are the precepts of the Almighty, will lead us to see what an awful thing it is to despise and ignore them. #Quote by Arthur W. Pink

Godliness quotes by Valerie Tarico
#145. When the Bible is understood in its literary and historical context; errors, contradictions, and inconsistencies pose no threat to spirituality, whether that spirituality is theistic, non-theistic, or even explicitly Jesus-centered. The graver threat to what Christians call godliness may be fundamentalism - religion that flows from literalism and fear, religion based on anachronism and law. Fundamentalism teachers, in effect, that the tattered musings of our ancestors, those human words that so poorly represent the content of human thinking, somehow adequately describe God. Fundamentalism offers identity, security, and simplicity, but at a price: by binding believers to the moral imitations and cultural trappings of the Ancients, it precludes a deeper embrace of goodness, love, and truth - in other words, of Divinity. #Quote by Valerie Tarico
Godliness quotes by Jane Roberts
#146. Your Godliness speaks through your creaturehood. It is not debased and no entities took upon themselves the disreputable descent into matter. Your souls are not slumming. You are not the garbage heap of the universe. You are yourselves becoming and you are creating, in your way, a unique reality in which, in your terms, each moment is miraculous; in which your own identities are forever original and unduplicated..."

"You are not cosmic princesses and princes who come down here to immerse yourselves in lives of sorrow and degradation; who wear physical bodies of great weight, gross and sinful. You are spirits who express yourselves through the miraculous joy of flesh. Who bring to the Universe a reality unknown, in your terms. Who wear as your badge of identity, joy and exultation; and those that tell you that physical life is evil, do not know what they are speaking."

"As I have told you before, those who speak to you in terms of guilt; ignore them. Those who tell you that to be spiritual is not to be physical do not understand the great physical-spiritual nature of your being. They have not dreamed in their minds. They have not sparkled in themselves like stars and so experiencing night they think that existence is dark."

"Open up your eyes and perceive your reality and that will lead you to other realities. You have legs; use them. You have consciousness; use it. You have mind #Quote by Jane Roberts
Godliness quotes by Thabiti M. Anyabwile

Godliness quotes by James Arminius
#156. [Theology] may be defined, the doctrine or science of the truth which is according to godliness, and which God has revealed to man that he may know God and divine things, may believe on Him and may through faith perform to Him the acts of love, fear, honour, worship and obedience, and obtain blessedness from Him through union with Him, to the divine glory ... On this account, theology is not a theoretical science or doctrine, but a practical one, requiring the action of the whole man, according to all and each of it's parts
an action of the most transcendent description, answerable to the excellence of the object as far as the human capacity will permit. #Quote by James Arminius
Godliness quotes by Arun D. Ellis
#157. Let's de-bunk some of this, shall we? Myth 1– Kings and Queens are divine beings – rubbish. Kings and queens of old were murdering bastards who ruled with a rod of iron. Myth 2 – the rich prosper out of godliness – more rubbish. They gained their wealth by royal patronage and taxing and stealing from the masses. Myth 3 - the poor are poor because they're depraved – yet more rubbish. They're poor because of their naivety and childlike belief in, oh yes, Kings and Queens, the Church and the order of things. Finally, Myth 4 - women are evil and deliberately seductive – the biggest nonsense of all. Women are sexually attractive to men because they are the opposite sex to men; it's not hard to see, is it? It's the same for every species on the planet, you can see it in any mating ritual on the Discovery channel but this truth has been reversed and buried under the eternal lie fostered upon us by the church. That's what the bible has achieved and that's why our society is divided and divided again. That's why we are never working as one, because religion was designed to divide and rule the masses," she broke off and looked deliberately round the room, "but the big question is, for what purpose and by whom? #Quote by Arun D. Ellis

Godliness quotes by Rajneesh
#161. Whatever you are doing, if there is contentment and a feeling that this whole existence is nothing but the manifestation of godliness, that we are traveling on holy earth, that whomever you are meeting, you are meeting God - there is no other way; only faces are different, but the inner reality is the same - all your tensions will disappear. And the energy that is involved in tensions will start becoming your grace, your beauty. #Quote by Rajneesh
Godliness quotes by A.W. Tozer

Godliness quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#165. The two most important things in our holy religion are the life of faith and the walk of faith. He who shall rightly understand these is not far from being a master in experimental theology, for they are vital points to a Christian. You will never find true faith unattended by true godliness; on the other hand, you will never discover a truly holy life which has not for its root a living faith upon the righteousness of Christ. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Godliness quotes by Anton Szandor LaVey
#170. Some religions actually go so far as to label anyone who belongs to a religious sect other than their own a heretic, even though the overall doctrines and impressions of godliness are nearly the same. For example: The Catholics believe the Protestants are doomed to Hell simply because they do not belong to the Catholic Church. In the same way, many splinter groups of the Christian faith, such as the evangelical or revivalist churches, believe the Catholics worship graven images. (Christ is depicted in the image that is most physiologically akin to the individual worshipping him, and yet the Christians criticize "heathens" for the worship of graven images.) And the Jews have always been given the Devil's name. #Quote by Anton Szandor LaVey
Godliness quotes by John Lyly
#171. When parents put gold into the hands of youth, when they should put a rod under their girdle
when instead of awe they make them past grace, and leave them rich executors of goods, and poor executors of godliness, then it is no marvel that the son being left rich by his father's will, becomes reckless by his own will. #Quote by John Lyly
Godliness quotes by Ellen Goodman
#172. My generation is the first in my species to have put fitness next to godliness on the scale of things. Keeping in shape has become the imperative of our middle age. The heaviest burden of guilt we carry into our forties is flab. Our sense of failure is measured by the grade on a stress test. #Quote by Ellen Goodman
Godliness quotes by George Q. Cannon

Godliness quotes by Vigen Guroian
#174. I think gardening is nearer to godliness than theology. True gardeners are both iconographers and theologians insofar as these activities are the fruit of prayer 'without ceasing.' Likewise, true gardeners never cease to garden, not even in their sleep, because gardening is not just something they do. It is how they live. #Quote by Vigen Guroian

Godliness quotes by Philip Schaff
#182. Henceforth we find woman no longer a slave of man and tool of lust, but the pride and joy of her husband, the fond mother training her children to virtue and godliness, the ornament and treasure of the family, the faithful sister, the zealous servant of the congregation in every work of Christian charity, the sister of mercy, the martyr with superhuman courage, the guardian angel of peace, the example of purity, humility, gentleness, patience, love, and fidelity unto death. Such women were unknown before. The heathen Libanius, the enthusiastic eulogist of old Grecian culture, pronounced an involuntary eulogy on Christianity when he exclaimed, as he looked at the mother of Chrysostom: "What women the Christians have! #Quote by Philip Schaff

Godliness quotes by Terry Pratchett

Godliness quotes by Rajneesh

Godliness quotes by Thomas Watson
#191. How far from godliness, are those who are unspiritual in their worship, who do not do duties from a renewed principle and with the utmost intention of soul - but merely to stop the mouth of conscience! Many people look no further than the bare doing of duties - but never heed how they are done. God does not judge our duties by their length - but by love. #Quote by Thomas Watson

Godliness quotes by Vishwas Chavan

Godliness quotes by Russell M. Nelson
#196. For each of you to receive revelation unique to your own needs and responsibilities, certain guidelines prevail. The Lord asks you to develop 'faith, hope, charity and love, with an eye single to the glory of God.' Then with your firm 'faith, virtue, knowledge, temperance, patience, brotherly kindness, godliness, charity, humility, [and] diligence,' you may ask, and you will receive; you may knock, and it will be opened unto you (D&C 4:5–6; emphasis added). #Quote by Russell M. Nelson

Sometimes you won't have time to pray and read and seek counsel for a month. That's why the way of wisdom is about more than getting a decisive word about one or two big decisions in life. The way of wisdom is a way of life. And when it's a way of life, you are freer than you realize.
