Quotes Concerning Christian Identity

"For the pusillanimous person is worthy of goods, but deprives himself of the goods he is worthy of, and would seem to have something bad in him because he does not think he is worthy of the goods. Indeed he would seem not to know himself; for if he did, he would aim at the things he is worthy of, since they are goods. For all that, such people seem hesitant rather than foolish. But this belief of theirs actually seems to make them worse. For each sort of person seeks what [he thinks] he is worth; and these people hold back from fine actions and practices, and equally from external goods, because they think they are unworthy of them." from Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics, Book IV, Chapter 3.

"Save us from our 'piety,' from our never ending, clever complaining of our own wretchedness. Lord turn our hearts away from that wicked self-absorption masked as "contrition." Give us instead, hearts of joy, hearts of belief - that is, give us faith. Give us the strength to be more certain of the Gospel than of trifle occasions past. Give us eyes that believe the future more strongly than we believe the present and the past. Give us eschatological eyes." Scott Schultz

" are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God's people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy." 1 Peter 2:9-10

"Transformation of life is not an implication of the gospel but inherent in the gospel, because the good news is about transformation of life." Peter Leithart
