Merry Christmas | The Christ

Christmas is upon us. How many Christians do actually know the Christ? A few quotes below from the Sermon on the Mount:

26 Behold the birds of the heaven, that they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns ; and your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are not ye of much more value than they ?
27 And which of you by being anxious can add one cubit unto his stature ?
34 Be not therefore anxious for the morrow: for the morrow will be anxious for itself.

7:5 You hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of your own eye; and then shall you see clearly to cast out the speck out of your brother’s eye.

*******************

“…Rather, the kingdom is inside of you, and it is outside of you. When you come to know yourselves, then you will become known, and you will realize that it is you who are the sons of the living father. But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty.”–Gospel of Thomas

“I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.”–Mohandas Gandhi

Mohandas Gandhi: His philosophy of nonviolence changed the world.

“Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi: (2 October 1869 – 30 January 1948) was the pre-eminent political and spiritual leader of India during the Indian independence movement.  He was the pioneer of satyagraha—resistance to tyranny through mass civil disobedience, firmly founded upon ahimsa or total non-violence—which led India to independence and has inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. Gandhi is commonly known around the world as Mahatma Gandhi or ‘Great Soul’, an honorific first applied to him by Rabindranath Tagore, and in India also as Bapu (Gujarati: બાપુ bāpu or ‘Father’). He is officially honoured in India as the Father of the Nation; his birthday, 2 October, is commemorated there as Gandhi Jayanti, a national holiday, and worldwide as the International Day of Non-Violence.”–Wikipedia

“I cannot teach you violence, as I do not myself believe in it. I can only teach you not to bow your heads before any one even at the cost of your life.”–Mahatma GandhiMore quotes at: http://www.quotationspage.com/quotes/Mahatma_Gandhi/   To know more: http://www.lucidcafe.com/library/95oct/mkgandhi.html or www.wikipedia.com
