    Morality quotes by:    

Nothing in the world so tends to defile the imagination, to pervert the affections, and to corrupt the morals, as self-consciousness. You know it is connected with every disease and morbid action of the body. ...All self-consciousness is of the very essence and nature of sin..

    Author: A.A. Hodge

To risk reputation and affection for the truth's sake is so demanding that to do it constantly you will need a degree of moral principle that only the Spirit of God can work in you. Do not turn your back like a coward, but play the man. Follow boldly in your Master's steps, for He has made this rough journey before you. Better a brief warfare and eternal rest than false peace and everlasting torment.

    Author: Alistair Begg

Christianity is the only system of faith which combines religious beliefs with corresponding principles of morality. It builds ethics on religion.

    Author: Austin Phelps

The moral absolutes rest upon God's character. The moral commands He has given to men are an expression of His character. Men as created in His image are to live by choice on the basis of what God is. The standards of morality are determined by what conforms to His character, while those things which do not conform are immoral.

    Author: Francis Schaeffer

Human will-power alone is not enough. Will-power is excellent and we should always be using it; but it is not enough. A desire to live a good life is not enough. Obviously we should all have that desire, but it will not guarantee success. So let me put it thus: Hold on to your principles of morality and ethics, use your willpower to the limit, pay great heed to every noble, uplifting desire that is in you; but realize that these things alone are not enough, that they will never bring you to the desired place. We have to realize that all our best is totally inadequate, that a spiritual battle must be fought in a spiritual manner.

    Author: Martyn Lloyd-Jones

Critics of Christianity correctly point out that the church has proved an unreliable carrier of moral values. The church has indeed made mistakes, launching Crusades, censuring scientists, burning witches, trading in slaves, supporting tyrannical regimes. Yet the church also has an inbuilt potential for self-correction because it rests on a platform of transcendent moral authority. When human beings take upon themselves the Luciferian chore of redefining morality, untethered to any transcendent source, all hell breaks loose.

    Author: Philip Yancey

The greatest harm that can be suffered in the fight against perceived evil and injustice is not physical death or "occupation." It is the death of the conscience and spirit cut off from the nourishment of moral law.

    Author: Alan Keyes

I believe that a long step toward public morality will have been taken when sins are called by their right names.

    Author: Billy Sunday

You can't raise the standard of women's morals by raising their pay envelope. It lies deeper than that.

    Author: Billy Sunday

In this age of "gotcha" politics, it seems that there is an almost recreational spirit of enjoyment that many people take regarding the failings of others. As Christians, we should never take this cavalier attitude toward other's moral tragedies.

    Author: Jonathan Falwell

As a result of this total breakdown of basic morality in virtually every distinguished element within the American framework, constitutional governance is also virtually nonexistent. Adams was right: "Our Constitution was made only for a moral . . . people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."

    Author: Chuck Baldwin

The truth is that while liberals now hold the reins of power in Washington, D.C., the American people have not abandoned traditional morality and a conservative philosophy of government.

    Author: Judge Roy Moore
