You Can’t Touch Faith

“Faith is not tangible, you can’t touch it. It’s something that’s a belief, something that’s inside of you,
and I needed hope and faith to keep pushing myself past every single day of what I was going through and what I felt.
My true strength comes from God and certainly from my family right after that. They’re the most important things in my life.”

~ Kevin Sorbo,
Screen Actor, Voice Actor, Director & Executive Producer

That Which is Right, Just & True

“The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty
by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people.”

“A man dies when he refuses to stand up for that which is right.
A man dies when he refuses to stand up for justice.
A man dies when he refuses to take a stand for that which is true.”

~ Martin Luther King, Jr.,
Pastor, Activist & Humanitarian

A Magnet in Your Heart

“There is a magnet in your heart that will attract true friends.
That magnet is unselfishness, thinking of others first;
when you learn to live for others, they will live for you.”
~ Paramahansa Yogananda,
Guru

True Faith: God is Not Afraid of Our Questions

“God is not afraid of our inquiries. The question we must ask ourselves is whether we are we afraid of His.
If questioning exposes truth, let us question. A faith that is threatened by doctrinal inquiries and evaluation of certain tenets is no faith at all.
A faith that blindly demands belief subjugates the very inquisitive soul that God gave us.
What is more, it disqualifies itself from being a faith and more accurately falls under the category of a cult.
True faith welcomes questions; false faiths discourage and prohibit them.”
~ Samuel Rodriguez,
Founder & President – National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, Evangelist, Pastor, Movie Producer, Civil Rights Activist, Television Personality & Author

Hand-holding, Flowers & Nice Gestures

“A common misconception about strong women
is that we don’t need
the hand-holding, the flowers, and the nice gestures,
and what I’ve found to be true
is that it’s the strong women who want it the most.”
