A Christian without a ministry is an Anti-Christian! No one is called to be a spectator in the church, we’re all co-workers with Christ!

Ministry It's not all about preaching in the pulpit, but  demonstration of Christ's love and compassion to the hurting world!

Living a holy life and ministration of God’s word is not reserved for a specific group of people in the church; we’re all celled to minister

MAHATMA GANDHI ON CHRISTIANITY RELIGION
I like your CHRIST, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your CHRIST.”…

Jesus occupies in my heart the place of one of the greatest teachers who have had a considerable influence on my life. I shall say to the Hindus that your life will be incomplete unless you reverentially study the teachings of Jesus...

JESUS CHRIST is ideal and wonderful, but you Christians - you are not like him….

Today I rebel against orthodox Christianity, as I am convinced that it has distorted the message of Jesus Christ. He was an Asiatic whose message was delivered through many media, and when it had the backing of a Roman Emperor it became an imperialist faith as it remains to this day….

It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom.’ Thus really spoke Jesus Christ. His so-called followers measure their moral progress by their material possessions…….

I consider Western Christianity in its practical working a negation of Christ’s Christianity…..

Living Christ means a living Cross, without it life is a living death….

Jesus preached not a new religion but a new life. He called men to repentance….

There is no need for me to join your creed to be a believer in the beauty of the teachings of Jesus Christ…..

Though I admire much in Christianity; I am unable to identify myself with Orthodox Christianity…

Jesus lived and died in vain if he did not teach us to regulate the whole of life by the eternal Law of Love….

Do not flatter yourselves with the belief that a mere recital of that celebrated verse in St. John makes a man a Christian….

Satan’s successes are the greatest when he appears with the name of God on his lips…

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 nonviolence which rules all my actions, worldly and temporal….

Christianity asks people to follow wise men in a hierarchy; Christ asks people to follow him in Spirit and in Truth. Christianity requires institutional membership; Christ has promised to be anywhere two or three gather in his name. Christianity binds individuals with ritual and tradition; Christ warns that tradition makes God’s Word void in people’s hearts……

If Jesus came to earth again, he would disown many things that are being done in the name of Christianity. It is not he who says “Lord, Lord” that is a Christian, but “He that doeth the will of the Lord “ that is a true Christian...

I have never been able to reconcile myself to the gaieties of the Christmas season. They have appeared to me to be so inconsistent with the life and teaching of Jesus…..

I cannot conceive Jesus, if he was living in the flesh in our midst, approving of modern Christian organizations, public worship or modern ministry…...

Cease to think that you want to convert the whole world to your Interpretation of Christianity….

The message of Jesus as I understand it is contained in the Sermon on the Mount unadulterated and taken as a whole... If then I had to face only the Sermon on the Mount and my own interpretation of it, I should not hesitate to say, ‘Oh, yes, I am a Christian.’ But negatively I can tell you that in my humble opinion, what passes as Christianity is a negation of the Sermon on the Mount...

 I am speaking of the Christian belief, of Christianity as it is understood in the west.”I am, then, not against conversion. But I am against the modern methods of it. Conversion nowadays has become a matter of business, like any other. I remember having read a missionary report saying how much it cost per head to convert and then presenting a budget for ‘the next harvest’.

I know many men who have never heard the name of Jesus Christ or have even rejected the official interpretation of Christianity will, probably, if Jesus came in our midst today in the flesh, be owned by him more than many of us.The very national anthem of England is anti- Christian. Jesus, who asked his followers to love their enemies even as themselves, could not have sung of his enemies, “Confound his enemies, frustrate their knavish tricks…..

Make this world the kingdom of God and his righteousness and everything will be added unto you. I tell you that if you will understand, appreciate, and act up to the spirit of this passage, you won’t need to know what place Jesus or any other teacher occupies in your heart.”

There is no part time in God’s service, if you’re not serving God full time that means you’re not serving Him at all!

We shouldn’t consider one person as the ultimate oracle in the church; because we all have equal access to hear from the GOD!

Someone that have a revelation of Christ can't evade persecuted from religious men, because revelation and human ideology are very opposite!

Every positive thought is a silent prayer to the Living God! Resist negative thoughts!
