“O Lord, you have searched me and you know me.”
Anonymous, Holy Bible: King James Version

Chuck Palahniuk
“Nobody wants to worship you if you have the same problems, the same bad breath and messy hair and hangnails, as a regular person. You have to be everything regular people aren’t. Where they fail, you have to go all the way. Be what people are too afraid to be. Become whom they admire. People shopping for a messiah want quality. Nobody is going to follow a loser. When it comes to choosing a savior, they won't settle for just a human being.”
Chuck Palahniuk, Survivor

Chuck Palahniuk
“I am not loved. I am not a beautiful soul. I am not a good-natured, giving person. I am not anybody's savior.”
Chuck Palahniuk, Choke

Vera Nazarian
“It does not take a great supernatural heroine or magical hero to save the world.

We all save it every day, and we all destroy it -- in our own small ways -- by every choice we make and every tiniest action resulting from that choice.

The next time you feel useless and impotent, remember what you are in fact doing in this very moment. And then observe your tiny, seemingly meaningless acts and choices coalesce and cascade together into a powerful positive whole.

The world -- if it could -- will thank you for it.

And if it does not... well, a true heroine or hero does not require it.”
Vera Nazarian

Allen R. Hunt
“When you suffer, you are being conformed to the image of Jesus. When you pray, you are being made holy in the image of Jesus. When you quietly serve a person in need, you are being shaped into the image of Jesus. When you generously give, your heart is being remade into the image of Jesus, our Lord and Savior.”
Allen R. Hunt, Confessions of a Mega Church Pastor: How I Discovered the Hidden Treasures of the Catholic Church

“The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me; your love, O Lord, endures forever - do not abandon the works of your hands.”
Anonymous, Holy Bible: King James Version

“Someday when we're older, we'll learn who to trust. But heroes and saviors, can't save folks like us.”
Kevin Dalton - Faubush Hill

Eloise Dyson
“Life always promises to give the world a person to take away everything bad.”
Eloise Dyson, Divided

Thomm Quackenbush
“Ashlei was free to spout off how much she loved her savior because Jesus was not about to rear back and tell her He did not quite feel the same way, that He had died for the sins of the world just because it was fun and did not want things to be too serious. He was only thirty-three, after all, and might want to martyr himself for other people.”
Thomm Quackenbush, Danse Macabre (Night's Dream, #2)

“What are we but shooting stars, hoping to shine long enough to make at least one soul believe in the magic.”
Sherry Namdeo

Abhijit Naskar
“The purpose of my life is to make Gods out of every human.”
Abhijit Naskar, Time to End Democracy: The Meritocratic Manifesto

“No one’s coming to save the world. Not Jesus Christ, not anyone. If the world is to be saved then it’s our responsibility, no one else’s. The very act of believing in a Saviour is a disgrace. It’s cowardice and laziness, an abdication of our personal obligations. The logic of our central theme of “becoming God” is that each of us has to don the divine mantle. Salvation is our business, not someone else’s. It’s time to be active, not passive. It’s time to make things happen; not sit back and wait for others. It’s time to create our own “Rapture”, not pray to someone else to make it happen. We have to stop being alienated from our divine spark. It’s time to burnish it and let it illuminate the world.”
Michael Faust, The Right-Brain God

Michael Bassey Johnson
“You are the salt of the earth.
And you are here to season the world.”
Michael Bassey Johnson, Song of a Nature Lover

Rachel Braunscheidel
“Sometimes we overcomplicate things when it comes to identity. We think that maybe we need to get our jobs, our callings, our relationships, or our life’s work perfect in order for them to have meaning. We think maybe when we get everything lined up and polished to perfection, then we will have a secure sense of self. But Christ’s truth is pretty simple: We’re all human, and we all need a Savior. If we’ll accept Him as ours, then we’ll receive identity rather than coming up empty as we try to build identity for ourselves.”
Rachel Braunscheidel, The Heart-Home Builder: Cultivating an Inner Sanctuary with Christ amid Life’s Difficulties

“The Saviour sole duty is to save people from their sins.”
Lailah Gifty Akita

J.B. Salsbury
“Gage hasn't always been my curse. Most of the time, he's been my savior.”
J.B. Salsbury, Split

“Being a Christian means accepting Christ as your savior, your God. That's why you are called a 'Christian.' If you remove Christ, there's only 'ian' and that means 'I am nothing.”
Manny Pacquiao

Lailah Gifty Akita
“The Saviour aim is to save sinners.”
Lailah Gifty Akita

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“How many enemies were headed my way whose battle lines I never saw and whose piercing arrows never flew in my direction because God destroyed them before I ever caught sight of them, or they of me? More than I can count, but never more than God can destroy.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

“If there is a devil—and I believe there is—his work is to divide. If there is a Savior—and I believe there is—His work is to unite. It follows, therefore, that where division is, the devil is nearby. My proper response to division, then, is to disengage myself from whatever is causing it. If I would be on the side of the Redeemer, then I will do His work: I will engage in acts of reconciliation; I will become a peacemaker.”
Jean-Michel Hansen

Hrishikesh Agnihotri
“You may be a savior for your community- it's only a matter of synchronicity.”
Hrishikesh Agnihotri, Enrich The World With Your Presence : HA's Original Quotes, Volume 01

Bruce Reyes-Chow
“Kindness that is fueled by guilt, pity, or colonialism is not kindness at all. Kindness is not currency or a commodity to be used to barter and bargain away the sins of our past or to alleviate our responsibility to be part of global recovery efforts in times of tragedy.”
Bruce Reyes-Chow, In Defense of Kindness: Why It Matters, How It Changes Our Lives, and How It Can Save the World

“Political elections give us the illusion of choice. Whether many parties compete or two predominate parties compete, the choice they offer is a false choice. Each party typically portrays itself as the solution, urgently warns that the opposing party (or parties) will bring catastrophe, and makes promises it knows it cannot keep. In just one thing are all parties united: the illusion that politicians have the answer to life’s difficulties. In that assertion is the problem. It is a false assertion that the government—whichever party is in power—will save us. Elections are choices between two (or several) false narratives. So long as we look to politicians and governments for our salvation, we will be disappointed. There is but one Savior: Jesus Christ. He is mighty to save if we will have Him. He will not deceive us and He will not force us to accept Him. He offers truth, deliverance, protection, and peace. We must vote in every election: that is the pragmatic and prudent thing to do so long as we live in this fallen and imperfect world. Because that is the case, we see elections for what they are: moments in time when false narrative shift, and therefore occasions to realign ourselves with the Great Governor, Jesus Christ, who alone can save us.”
Jean-Michel Hansen

“With it’s transition from darkness into increasing light, Advent symbolically shows me my journey from the weaknesses I acquire because I live in a fallen world, to the enabling grace offered to me in Christ’s life, ministry, atonement, crucifixion, and resurrection. His ministry to me is individual, tailored to my specific needs. He saves me by changing me, transforming me, and making me into something I am not now. He can convert me—if I will let Him—into a fit traveler, able to walk the covenant path that leads through the temple and back to my Heavenly Father. Jesus willingly walks with me, inviting me to take on His yoke (which is easy) and to exchange my burden for His (which is light). Advent reminds me to invite the Light of the World to illuminate my life. O come, o come, Emanuel!”
Jean-Michel Hansen

“Our burdens sometimes seem unbearable. Rarely do we see that each burden, small or large, is an invitation to turn to the Savior. But each burden is precisely that: an invitation to seek Christ’s help. He will—if we will permit it—exchange burdens with us. “My burden,” He promises, “is light.” If we dare to make the exchange, we slowly discover that His burden isn’t heavy. As we surrender the oppressions and wrongs done to us, our flaws, weaknesses, sins, sorrows, and failures to this Willing and Able Bearer of Burdens, we discover that He is also the Great Transformer. Though His atonement, Jesus Christ transforms our heaviest burdens into our greatest blessings. He re-makes us into women and men who are not undone by burdens. He re-makes us into men and women who become capable of carrying our burdens without complaint; even cheerfully. Then, in the moment when His light illuminates what He has done for us, He gently invites us to go and do likewise: to take on the burdens of others and to tell them of the One Whose Burdens are Light; of the One Whose Light Reveals Truth.”
Jean-Michel Hansen, atonment, Transformation, Blessings

Abhijit Naskar
“Human Helpline (The Sonnet)

Neither Christ, nor Krishna, nor Superman,
No imagination can rescue humanity.
Each of us is the only helpline,
Human salvation is human responsibility.
Enough with these prayer and rituals,
Now awake from the sleep of subjugation.
As heroes fraught with reason and conscience,
We must rise to break all submission.
Progress demands a life of revolution,
Self-induced slavery won't do.
The more you seek a savior outside,
The more you turn into boneless goo.
Of all life on earth the human being is peerless.
Only those called sapiens roar for the helpless.”
Abhijit Naskar, When Veins Ignite: Either Integration or Degradation
