Pious Bible quotes by Billy Graham
#1. Greed is an unreasonable or all-absorbing desire to acquire things or wealth. One test of greed is that it is never satisfied. Greed is repeatedly condemned in the Bible. #Quote by Billy Graham
Pious Bible quotes by Anonymous
#2. If I have the gift of the prophecy, and can fathom all mystery's and knowledge, and if I have faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. #Quote by Anonymous
Pious Bible quotes by Geoffrey Wood
#3. The Bible is the one book we've most succeeded in having them never read as a book. Keep it that way. #Quote by Geoffrey Wood
Pious Bible quotes by Flannery O'Connor
#4. I distrust pious phrases, especially when they issue from my mouth. I try militantly never to be affected by the pious language of the faithful but it is always coming out when you least expect it. In contrast to the pious language of the faithful, the liturgy is beautifully flat. #Quote by Flannery O'Connor
Pious Bible quotes by Francis Schaeffer
#5. As evangelical Christians, we have tended to relegate art to the very fringe of life. The rest of human life we feel is more important. Despite our constant talk about the Lordship of Christ, we have narrowed its scope to a very small area of reality. We have misunderstood the concept of the Lordship of Christ over the whole of man and the whole of the universe and have not taken to us the riches that the Bible gives us for ourselves, for our lives, and for our culture. #Quote by Francis Schaeffer
Pious Bible quotes by Timothy J. Keller
#6. All the seemingly loose threads and contradictory claims of the rest of the Bible come together in Jesus. #Quote by Timothy J. Keller
Pious Bible quotes by Norman L. Geisler
#7. I found it (the word 'mercy') occurs 261 times in the Bible-and seventy-two percent of them are in the Old Testament. That's a three-to-one ratio. Then I studied the word 'love' and found it occurs 322 times in the Bible, about half in each testament. So you have the same emphasis on love in both. #Quote by Norman L. Geisler
Pious Bible quotes by John Calvin
#8. The difference between us and the papists is that they do not think that the church can be 'the pillar of the truth' unless she presides over the word of God. We, on the other hand, assert that it is because she reverently subjects herself to the word of God that the truth is preserved by her and passed on to others by her hands. #Quote by John Calvin
Pious Bible quotes by Thomas Paine
#9. Whence arose all the horrid assassinations of whole nations of men, women, and infants, with which the Bible is filled; and the bloody persecutions, and tortures unto death, and religiosu wars, that since that time have laid Europe in blood and ashes; whence arose they, but from this impious thing called religion, and this monstrous belief that God has spoken to man? #Quote by Thomas Paine
Pious Bible quotes by Terry Pratchett
#10. Evolution was far more thrilling to me than the biblical account. Who would not rather be a rising ape than a falling angel? To my juvenile eyes, Darwin was proved true every day. It doesn't take much to make us flip back into monkeys again. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Pious Bible quotes by George R.R. Martin
#11. This is a night for song and sin and drink, for come the morrow, the virtuous and the vile burn together. #Quote by George R.R. Martin
Pious Bible quotes by Albert Mohler
#12. This generation must know that the total truthfulness of the bible is under continual assault ... #Quote by Albert Mohler
Pious Bible quotes by Roy Blount, Jr.
#13. An author is a person who can never take innocent pleasure in visiting a bookstore again. Say you go in and discover that there are no copies of your book on the shelves. You resent all the other books - I don't care if they are Great Expectations, Life on the Mississippi and the King James Bible that are on the shelves. #Quote by Roy Blount, Jr.
Pious Bible quotes by Robert Anton Wilson
#14. The Bible tells us to be like God, and then on page after page it describes God as a mass murderer. This may be the single most important key to the political behavior of Western Civilization. #Quote by Robert Anton Wilson
Pious Bible quotes by Mark Batterson
#15. Don't just read the Bible. Start circling the promises. Don't just make a wish. Write down a list of God-glorifying life goals. Don't just pray. Keep a prayer journal. Define your dream. Claim your promise. Spell your miracle. #Quote by Mark Batterson
Pious Bible quotes by Megan Griswold
#16. I had grown weary of so many rules. That's the thing about every discipline. There's often a format, a belief that if you don't follow the structure to the tiniest detail, you won't get the maximum value: mantras are private. Om is the most perfect sound in the universe. Never lay a sacred text to chant on the floor. If you are in a seminar, always wear a name tag. Put your name in the upper right hand corner of every essay. Just breathe. No, scream. No, cry or hit something. But don't lose yourself. Never do yoga on the full moon. Walk clockwise around a temple. Don't eat protein and starch in the same meal. Always begin the day with fruit. Don't eat any fruit. Never utter the word of G_d. There is no God. There are multiple gods. To be a good acupuncturist, "check your stuff" at the door. Bring all of you. Never do work on the Sabbath. Don't cary anything in your pockets. Consciousness is constant work. Accept Jesus. Read the Bible. There is no suffering. Acknowledge suffering as a noble truth. Tread lightly on the Earth. Leave no trace. Make your mark. Get noticed. Travel silently through life. Attend to the needs of others. Follow your bliss. Suppress. Express. Withhold. Let go. Let it in. Get off the grid. Join the marketplace. Go toward the light. Hadn't I heard enough? #Quote by Megan Griswold
Pious Bible quotes by Rick Warren
#17. Love should be your top priority, primary objective, and greatest ambition. Love is not a good part of your life; it's the most important part. The Bible says, Let love be your greatest aim. #Quote by Rick Warren
Pious Bible quotes by Jen Hatmaker
#18. We don't see the New Testament church hoarding the feast for themselves, gorging, getting fatter and fatter and asking for more; more bible studies, more sermons, more programs, classes, training, conferences, information, more feasting for us. At some point, the church stopped living the bible and decided just to study it, culling the feast parts and whitewashing the fast parts. We are addicted to the buffet, skillfully discarding the costly discipleship required after consuming. The feast is supposed to sustain the fast, but we go back for seconds and thirds and fourths, stuffed to the brim and fat with inactivity. #Quote by Jen Hatmaker
Pious Bible quotes by Terrence Jameson
#19. Malachi 3: 8-9 is probably the most misrepresented scripture tithing advocates quote in the Bible. They contend that anyone that does not pay tithe is robbing God and will be cursed. However, Malachi was not speaking to the Jewish nation he was speaking to the priests. The priests were the ones criticized for robbing God and received the curse for failing to follow God's ordinances. They were withholding the best meats for themselves and offering God "blemished" sacrifices.

Pastors that knowingly deceive others by preaching a false tithing doctrine are the real thieves and are no different than the priests that Malachi rebuked. They are blind guides that lead God's people astray. They have cherry picked certain principles from God's tithing system and turned it into something that looks nothing like Moses' design. It is an inequitable system that does not provide for the poor and allow prosperity preachers and false teachers to profit far beyond the members of their congregation. #Quote by Terrence Jameson
Pious Bible quotes by Jennifer Donnelly
#20. You should spend more time reading the Good Book and less reading all those novels. What are you going to tell the Lord on Judgement Day when He asks you why you didn't read your bible? Hmm?
I will tell Him that His press agents could have done with a writing lesson or two, I said. To myself. #Quote by Jennifer Donnelly
Pious Bible quotes by Austin 3:16
#21. For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son [Stalin], so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him. #Quote by Austin 3:16
Pious Bible quotes by Cole Ryan
#22. There's a beautiful poem at the beginning of a collection of books we call the Bible. In that poem, it is written: "Then God said, 'Let us make man.'"

God then recognized that it was not good for man to be alone.

We can all agree on that one, I think. Loneliness is one of the most excruciating pains that the human heart, or any heart, has to go through.

What did God do about it?

What was His remedy?

What was His answer?

He created marriage. He didn't create dating, He didn't create courting - He created marriage. #Quote by Cole Ryan
Pious Bible quotes by Alain De Botton
#23. The secular are at this moment in history a great deal more optimistic than the religious – something of an irony, given the frequency with which the latter have been derided by the former for their apparent naivety and credulousness. It is the secular whose longing for perfection has grown so intense as to lead them to imagine that paradise might be realized on this earth after just a few more years of financial growth and medical research. With no evident awareness of the contradiction they may, in the same breath, gruffly dismiss a belief in angels while sincerely trusting that the combined powers of the IMF, the medical research establishment, Silicon Valley and democratic politics could together cure the ills of mankind.... It is telling that the secular world is not well versed in the art of gratitude: we no longer offer up thanks for harvests, meals, bees or clement weather. On a superficial level, we might suppose that this is because there is no one to say 'Thank you' to. But at base it seems more a matter of ambition and expectation. Many of those blessings for which our pious and pessimistic ancestors offered thanks, we now pride ourselves on having worked hard enough to take for granted. #Quote by Alain De Botton
Pious Bible quotes by Randy Alcorn
#24. If all the Bibles in America were simultaneously dusted, the sun would be obscured for a week. It's not a magic talisman that works without being read. A Bible does us no harm as long as it remains closed. #Quote by Randy Alcorn
Pious Bible quotes by Albert Einstein
#25. As a child I received instruction both in the Bible and in the Talmud. I am a Jew, but I am enthralled by the luminous figure of the Nazarene ... No one can read the Gospels without feeling the actual presence of Jesus. His personality pulsates in every word. No myth is filled with such life. Jesus is too colossal for the pen of phrase-mongers, however artful. No man can dispose of Christianity with a bon mot.
(Quote taken from "What Life Means to Einstein," The Saturday Evening Post, October 26, 1929.) #Quote by Albert Einstein
Pious Bible quotes by Finis Jennings Dake
#26. Nevertheless, should you have any doubts that we are stating sound doctrines, look up the references and see exactly what the Bible says and believe it in preference to any man. You cannot go wrong with this kind of advice. But in doing this, be sure you adhere to what is written, and that you do not let preconceived ideas cause you to be biased on any point. Do not try to make the Bible conform to your ideas. Always reconcile your ideas to the Bible. Let the plain language of the references given be read and understood in the same literal way that we would understand similar statements in any other book #Quote by Finis Jennings Dake
Pious Bible quotes by Neal Stephenson
#27. Everything from the brim of this hat to the hem of her dress was too complex for Daniel's eye to comprehend - he was like an illiterate savage staring at the first page of an illuminated Bible - but #Quote by Neal Stephenson
Pious Bible quotes by Steve Allen
#28. I cannot see how it can be argued that one should speak in tones of reverence and awe about the alleged divine instruction-in Psalms-to grab the defenseless bodies of innocent infants and dash their brains out against the nearest rocks or walls. #Quote by Steve Allen
Pious Bible quotes by Elvis Presley
#29. Be ye innocent as doves yet wise as serphants new testament quoted by Elvis Presley and applied to karate #Quote by Elvis Presley
Pious Bible quotes by David Mathis
#30. …Take every word as spoken to yourself, with this essential anchor in place: Seek to understand first how God's words fell on the original hearers, and how they relate to Jesus' person and work, and then bring them home to yourself. #Quote by David Mathis
Pious Bible quotes by J.I. Packer
#31. If I were the devil I should broadcast doubts about the truths and relevance and good sense and straightforwardness of the Bible ... At all costs I should want to keep them from using their minds in a disciplined way to get the measure of its message. #Quote by J.I. Packer
Pious Bible quotes by George Benson
#32. I study the Bible constantly. I teach the Bible. You know, I'm a Bible conductor, and I have a lot of people studies. But also, I see how small things really help people to get over humps in their life. Gives them direction. #Quote by George Benson
Pious Bible quotes by Bill Farrel
#33. The Bible encourages us to "serve one another in love." One of the ways you can work this out in your marriage is first to ask yourself, "Whose needs will this conversation serve?" Your needs and those of your husband often cannot be met in the same conversation. When it's your husband's turn to talk, practice staying in the box he wants to open. You see, when he brings up an issue for discussion, he actually intends to talk about that issue alone. #Quote by Bill Farrel
Pious Bible quotes by Dave Hunt
#34. We are raising a generation on the spiritual junk food of religious videos, movies, youth entertainment, and comic book paraphrases of the Bible. The Word of God is being rewritten, watered down, illustrated, and dramatized in order to cater to the taste of the carnal mind. That only leads further into the wilderness of doubt and confusion. #Quote by Dave Hunt
Pious Bible quotes by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
#35. The great masquerade of evil has played havoc with all our ethical concepts. For evil to appear disguised as light, charity, historical necessity, or social justice is quite bewildering to anyone brought up on our traditional ethical concepts, while for the Christian who bases his life on the Bible, it merely confirms the fundamental wickedness of evil. #Quote by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Pious Bible quotes by Michael J. Shank
#36. It takes muscle and a shovel to read the Bible. It takes a heart that's willing to dig. It takes an honest heart that's willing to lay aside preconceived ideas. #Quote by Michael J. Shank
Pious Bible quotes by Steve Munsey
#37. Now I am going to speak a word and this is the word and here's the word. When the clock strikes 2.08. There are eight songs in the Bible. Noah started the world over with eight people. On the eighth day the Bible says Jesus appeared. Thomas because was not a believer but on the eighth day he showed up and Thomas was a believer. Actually Jesus was resurrected on the eighth day ... #Quote by Steve Munsey
Pious Bible quotes by Witness Lee
#38. We need to be impressed with these words in verse [2 Cor. 1:]9 - "we should not base our confidence on ourselves but on God." Through the redemption of Christ, the very God, who is in the heavens, has come into us, into our spirit (Col. 1:27; 2 Tim. 4:22). Thank the Lord that He is now in our spirit, calling us to forget about the soulish things and turn to our spirit to meet Him. We should no longer trust in our self, in our soul, but in God who is in our spirit. #Quote by Witness Lee
Pious Bible quotes by Billy Graham
#39. Some people think that going to church on Sunday and owning a dust-covered Bible makes a person a Christian. That is not true. A Christian is one in whom Christ dwells, and the person's life will give evidence of this. #Quote by Billy Graham
Pious Bible quotes by Thomas Paine
#40. The most horrible wickedness and cruelties, and the greatest miseries that have troubled the human race began with this thing called revelation, or revealed religion ... It would be far, far better for us to let a thousand devils roam the world, and publicly preach the doctrine of devils (if there were such a thing, which there isn't), than to let one impostor and monster such a Moses, Joshua, Samuel or the Bible prophets come speaking the so-called word of God, and causing men to believe it. #Quote by Thomas Paine
Pious Bible quotes by Eric Ludy
#41. You're looking for counselors, there are 66 in the Bible. #Quote by Eric Ludy
