I’ve never had a problem with Jesus. In fact, I’m pretty sure he’s just the kind of guy you’d always want to have around. But I have had a big problem with his agents, publicists, and managers. They’ve abused his message for power and converted moldable, excited people into bullied believers and followers.
Believers are right when they say that to understand a religion properly you need to get under its skin. But to understand it fully, you cannot stay there: you have to take a more objective view, too.

I’ve written about this before, but the sad truth is this: There are only a handful of Trump true believers in the Senate.

The best way in the world to deceive believers is to cloak a message in religious language and declare that it conveys some new insight from God.

Both me and Edgar are firm believers in never underestimating or talking down to an audience, and giving an audience something to do, to give them something which is entirely up to them to enter into the film and find these hidden things and whatever.

Sunday morning church service is not an enormous priority; spending time with other believers is.

Whoever feels predestined to see and not to believe will find all believers too noisy and pushy: he guards against them.
The growth of our understanding of the world through science weakens some of the motivation which makes people believers. But that’s not the same thing as saying they’re incompatible.

We are firm believers that the first time somebody hears a brand new song from the band, it shouldn’t be on a cell phone camera with the distortion or anything where you can’t make it out. We want to present it right.

I’ve known a lot of religious people. My mother is very religious, but she also is very private about it. When I was growing up, she never went to church. She just prayed and read her Bible and kept it to herself. I’m not from a background of flamboyant believers. It’s much more a personal issue.
The imaginations of believers have dressed up and exaggerated the excellence of the style and matter of the New Testament generally, in the same manner, in which they have the moral instructions of Jesus.

I write about what hoaxers do, but I also want us to think about what believers do. Why do we want to believe a story like James Frey’s ‘A Million Little Pieces?’ Why did we want to believe that Lance Armstrong really did all these things that, looking back, seemed impossible?
I partly know why I have not led a perfect life like other believers. But I avow to my Lord, and I do not lie, that from the time when I first knew him, the love of God and the fear of him has grown in me from my youth so that I have, by the power of God, always till now kept the faith.

I recorded the song ‘Believers’ because I feel the song has a strong and much needed message. We all need encouragement and something to believe in.
Religious persecutors are not believers, they are rascals.
