Religion, Church

"A good shoe is a shoe you don't notice . . . The perfect church service would be one we were almost unaware of; our attention would have been on God. But every novelty prevents this.

Lewis, Clive Staples Lewis (29 November 1898 – 22 November 1963) was a British novelist, poet, academic, medievalist, literary critic, essayist, lay theologian, broadcaster, lecturer, and Christian apologist.

Adolf Hitler ( 20 April 1889 – 30 April 1945) was a German politician who was the leader of the Nazi Party, Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945, and Führer ("Leader") of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945.

"The essence of Christianity is not about religion at all, but about the person of Christ." Author Eric Metaxas paraphrasing Dietrich Bonhoeffer
