What are some religious phrases you like?
« on: August 15, 2012, 02:06:27 pm »
Well, we've got the other thread, so I figured this would be a good one as well, considering I've seen a few posts here about this very topic, scattered in other threads.

So, let's have it. Even if you don't like religion in general, what are some religious quotes, teachings, parables and proverbs that you find meaningful or inspirational?

I'll start:

"I understand that God shows no partiality, but in every nation any one who fears Him and does what is right is acceptable to him." -St. Peter, Acts 10:34-35

"Do not speak, unless it improves on silence." -Buddhist proverb

If you look at it logically, cannibalism has great potential to simultaneously solve our overpopulation and food shortage problems.

"The fool believes everything.  The sensible watches his step."  Proverb 14:16.

"They criticize the quiet ones.
They criticize the talkative ones.
They criticize the moderate ones.
There is no one in this world that can escape criticism."
(from the Dhamapada."

I actually really like Psalm 23. It's very soothing, especially when set to music.

'An so it harm none, do as thou wilt'.


Also, 'vive noctis'.
There is light and darkness in the world, to be sure.  However, there's no harm to be had in walking in the shade or shadows.

There's an ad by the Mormon Church on Youtube- it plays before some videos I like. It's a guy who's a biker and a family man, and he seems... remarkably badass. He's incredibly friendly, and mentions that he values having friends of other faiths. There are certain things about it that bug me (for instance, he mentions that he can't find part of the Bible that says he can't love motorcycles, and all I can think is "Why the shit would there be?"), but overall he seems like a damn decent guy, and it's nice to see that faith doesn't have to turn you into a fundie.

As for actual phrases-

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres."- 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

"God loves you just the way you are."- Said by Mr. Fred Rogers (yes, THE Mr. Rogers) , a devout Christian, to a group of gay people when a nearby heckler demanded he condemn them.
Oh, you take the high road, and I'll take the low road...

My mother did not CHOOSE life. She planned for it.

Is that weird monkey-creature-looking-thing supposed to be a BLACK MAN?

Fuck Yeah for you, my friend.

Anyway, it's not really a saying or a phrase or anything of the sort, but I just realised that the soundtrack for Railroad Tycoon 3 includes what I can only describe as a bluegrass instrumental cover of Amazing Grace. I know it's difficult to imagine, but it's actually quite a pleasant sound, particularly when you're trying to find that perfect route through some rather difficult terrain.

Hillel was a fairly awesome guy. Oh, and he invented the sandwich 2000 years before the Earl of Sandwich. So really, that's a peanut butter and jelly hillel you're eating there.

I saw this on the sign of a church years ago;

"The church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints."

"And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive them that trespass against us." from the Lord's Prayer. I just wish more Christians would actually be forgiving.
