Life is an adventure in forgiveness. -- Norman Cousins

The fewer the words, the better the prayer. -- Martin Luther

Whatever makes men good Christians, makes them good citizens. -- Daniel Webster

I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen. Not only because I see it, but because I see everything by it. -- C.S. Lewis

To be like Christ is to be a Christian. -- Daniel Webster

The measure of a Christian is not in the height of his grasp but in the depth of his love. -- Clarence Jordan

A Christian is a keyhole through which other folk see God. -- Robert E. Gibson

We should live our lives as though Christ was coming this afternoon. -- Jimmy Carter

I like the fifth one - the one about prayer. It makes a lot of sense.

Andy, nice meeting you here as always.
I haven't come across a verse where long prayers are the best prayers either.

Great quotes indeed!

"To be like Christ is to be a Christian."

Hei hi chu a tha khawp mai. We should never forget what Gandhiji once said: "I like your Christ. I just do not like your Christians". A ril lutuk. Shows how different we live our life as Christians compared to how Christ lived.

@ Kima, it's true. You must have had a lot of encounters with people of other faiths regarding this since you live in mainland India.
They work harder (or smarter), have higher moral values and etc. etc.
Christianity has become so diluted. I don't mean to be conservative, we should move on with time but it seems, time has conquered faith. This is bad.
