Chesterton: On Religion and Faith

 Chesterton: On Religion and Faith

Some great quotes from Chesterton accompanied by a short video from Father Hesse.


Religion and Faith

      • “One of the chief uses of religion is that it makes us remember our coming from darkness, the simple fact that we are created.” – The Boston Sunday Post, 1/16/21
      • “The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because they are generally the same people.” – ILN, 7/16/10
      • “If there were no God, there would be no atheists.” – Where All Roads Lead, 1922
      • “There are those who hate Christianity and call their hatred an all-embracing love for all religions.” – ILN, 1/13/06
      • “The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting; it has been found difficult and left untried.” – Chapter 5, What’s Wrong With The World, 1910
      • “The riddles of God are more satisfying than the solutions of man.” – Introduction to the Book of Job, 1907
      • “It has been often said, very truely, that religion is the thing that makes the ordinary man feel extraordinary; it is an equally important truth that religion is the thing that makes the extraordinary man feel ordinary.” – Charles Dickens
      • “Theology is only thought applied to religion.” – The New Jerusalem
      • “The truth is, of course, that the curtness of the Ten Commandments is an evidence, not of the gloom and narrowness of a religion, but, on the contrary, of its liberality and humanity. It is shorter to state the things forbidden than the things permitted: precisely because most things are permitted, and only a few things are forbidden.” – ILN 1-3-20
      • “These are the days when the Christian is expected to praise every creed except his own.” – ILN 8-11-28
      • “Puritanism was an honourable mood; it was a noble fad. In other words, it was a highly creditable mistake.” – Blake
