10 QUOTES WITH «CONVERSION»

Famous quotes and sentences with the word conversion.
1
Archibald Alexander
God is not glorified in any transaction upon earth so much as in the conversion of a sinner.
2
Fredrik Bajer
There are many members of parliament present here who know as well as I do that, if a man has not already been converted, it will require a great deal more than a letter of appeal to achieve conversion.
3
David A. Bednar
Testimony is the beginning of and a prerequisite to continuing conversion. Testimony is a point of departure; it is not an ultimate destination. Strong testimony is the foundation upon which conversion is established. Testimony alone is not and will not be enough to protect us in the latter-day storm of darkness and evil in which we are living.
4
David A. Bednar
Conversion is an offering of self, of love, and of loyalty we give to God in gratitude for the gift of testimony.
5
David A. Bednar
Knowing that the gospel is true is the essence of a testimony. Consistently being true to the gospel is the essence of conversion.
6
Donald Cargill
I wish there were more true conversion, and then there would not be so much backsliding, and, for fear of suffering, living at ease, when there are so few to contend for Christ and His cause.
7
Jim Caviezel
Conversion is a daily thing.
8
Wesley Clark
I said the rosary, and I said the Our Father, as they call it in the Catholic Church. One of the things I learned in the conversion process was to say the rosary, and I had a set of rosary beads. So I said 'Hail Mary, full of grace.'
9
Terry Eagleton
The conversion of agnostic High Tories to the Anglican church is always rather suspect. It seems too pat and predictable, too clearly a matter of politics rather than faith.
10
Dianne Feinstein
Global warming is real. It is happening today. It is being charted by our satellites. It is being charted by our scientists. It is being charted by those of us in this body, and I think the real key is if we are ready to admit that fact and take the action to make the necessary conversion.
