John Clayton quotes (25)

All holidays can be good times.
John Clayton   Category:

Almost every time I am in a lectureship on a college campus, young people will say, If there is a God and if he is a loving and merciful God, how do you explain the problems of suffering and death and all the tragedies that happen to people?
John Clayton   Category:

Between 1910 and 1950 approximately 350 lives of Jesus were published in the English language alone.
John Clayton   Category:

Christians were instructed to serve others, and the thanksgiving was for the grace of God and the fact that God offered a way for man to return to a positive relationship with Him.
John Clayton   Category:

Christmas is the antithesis of Thanksgiving. Christmas is pretty much a man-made holiday.
John Clayton   Category:

Could the one whom Christians worship be merely a mythological creation, or is he real? These questions have exercised many great minds and have been the dominant issue in New Testament studies during this century.
John Clayton   Category:

I believe any question that man can ask has a reasonable answer-at least an answer that is as consistent with God's existence as it is in opposition to God's existence.
John Clayton   Category:

I guess none of us like to look back in our lives to a time when we made poor judgments and foolish mistakes.
John Clayton   Category:

In the surface of the paper there is only length and width-there is no such thing as thickness.
John Clayton   Category:

Is it possible that the portrait of the divine Son of God is an exaggeration, at best, or a complete fabrication, at worst, of the original Jesus?
John Clayton   Category:

It is my fervent hope and prayer that by exposing my mistakes and by pointing out the things that were a part of my early life, some who might be following the same paths might not make those same mistakes.
John Clayton   Category:

Just as a puppy can be more of a challenge than a gift, so too can the holidays.
John Clayton   Category:

Not only are Christians writing about Jesus, but also Communists, Jews, atheists and agnostics are taking up their pens to paint a portrait of Jesus.
John Clayton   Category:

Since I was an atheist for many years and came to believe in God through my studies in science, it frustrated me to see students and parents who viewed faith and science as enemies.
John Clayton   Category:

Thanksgiving is a season that is very much in accord with the themes and teachings of Jesus Christ.
John Clayton   Category:

Thanksgiving is a time when the world gets to see just how blessed and how workable the Christian system is. The emphasis is not on giving or buying, but on being thankful and expressing that appreciation to God and to one another.
John Clayton   Category:

The denominational world tries to pressure its members to focus on the birth of Christ, but in doing so layers of guilt are imposed, and competition gets complicated as one Christmas program tries to outdo the other.
John Clayton   Category:

The emphasis on the birth of Christ tends to polarize our pluralistic society and create legal and ethnic belligerence.
John Clayton   Category: Religion

The purpose of this study is to offer a logical, practical, pragmatic proof of the existence of God from a purely scientific perspective.
John Clayton   Category:

There is no racial or ethnic involvement in Thanksgiving, and people who may be very distant from the Christian system can see the beauty and the positive spirit that comes from the holiday.
John Clayton   Category:

There was no instruction to be thankful that the Christians were special people, chosen people. There was no nationalistic, political or ethnic superiority to be thankful for.
John Clayton   Category:

Was the real Jesus of history one and the same as the Christ of faith whom we read about in the New Testament and worship in the church? Was Jesus really raised from the dead? Is he really the divine Lord of lords?
John Clayton   Category:

We are assuming that we exist, that there is reality, and that the matter of which we are made is real.
John Clayton   Category:

What is the origin of God?
John Clayton   Category:

Why is it any more reasonable to believe that God has always been than it is to say that matter has always been?
