John Clayton QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
All holidays can be good times.
Quotation of John Clayton
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?
Quotation of John Clayton
Between 1910 and 1950 approximately 350 lives of Jesus were published in the English language alone.
Quotation of John Clayton
Christians were instructed to make thanksgiving a regular part of their daily thoughts and attitudes. Unlike all other systems of humans, the Thanksgiving of the Christian system was a unity concept-not an ego trip.
Quotation of John Clayton
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.
Quotation of John Clayton
Christmas is the antithesis of Thanksgiving. Christmas is pretty much a man-made holiday.
Quotation of John Clayton
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.
Quotation of John Clayton
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.
Quotation of John Clayton
I guess none of us like to look back in our lives to a time when we made poor judgments and foolish mistakes.
Quotation of John Clayton
If you do not believe that you exist, you have bigger problems than this study will entail and you will have to look elsewhere.
Quotation of John Clayton
In the surface of the paper there is only length and width-there is no such thing as thickness.
Quotation of John Clayton
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?
Quotation of John Clayton
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.
Quotation of John Clayton
Just as a puppy can be more of a challenge than a gift, so too can the holidays.
Quotation of John Clayton
Lawsuits fly on everything from manger scenes on certain properties to whether schools can sing Christmas carols. In spite of our rhetoric, most of us are relieved when the season is ove.
Quotation of John Clayton
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.
Quotation of John Clayton
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.
Quotation of John Clayton
Thanksgiving is a season that is very much in accord with the themes and teachings of Jesus Christ.
Quotation of John Clayton
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.
Quotation of John Clayton
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.
Quotation of John Clayton
The emphasis on the birth of Christ tends to polarize our pluralistic society and create legal and ethnic belligerence.
Quotation of John Clayton
The purpose of this study is to offer a logical, practical, pragmatic proof of the existence of God from a purely scientific perspective.
Quotation of John Clayton
There is no biblical instruction to celebrate Christmas or to emphasize the birth of Christ. Because of the human origin of this holiday, it has become so materialized that things are the emphasis of everyone's thinking.
Quotation of John Clayton
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.
Quotation of John Clayton
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.
Quotation of John Clayton
This is not to say that Christmas is not a fun time; it is just to say that it is not in the same league as Thanksgiving.
Quotation of John Clayton
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?
Quotation of John Clayton
We are assuming that we exist, that there is reality, and that the matter of which we are made is real.
Quotation of John Clayton
What is the origin of God?
Quotation of John Clayton
Why is it any more reasonable to believe that God has always been than it is to say that matter has always been?
Quotation of John Clayton
You and I are three-dimensional beings-we have length and width and frequently considerable thickness. You can draw a front view of me, but that is not the whole me.
Quotation of John Clayton
You can draw a top view of me which, because I am bald, ends up being three concentric circles, but that is not the whole me.
