Conduct


“God became man in the person of Jesus Christ, not to institute a new philosophy or code of conduct, but primarily to bestow upon us "new life" in the Holy Trinity.” (Rev. Thomas Fitzgerald)

“We are not our own and are to conduct ourselves in a manner worthy of the price paid for our redemption…Let your conduct be worth of the Gospel of Christ…” (Orthodox Study Bible, 1 Peter 1:18-19, St. Paul)

“Everything is a gift. We have earned nothing. The gifts of God are given to us for the purpose of giving Him thanks and to share with those who have less. The excellence of a moral agent is measured in deeds of compassion and self-offering, not in the fastidious adherence to a code of conduct.” (Father Stephen Freeman)

“…the truths of faith and morals are correlated to such a degree that one cannot exist without the other. The practice of these truths of conduct and morality cannot be achieved without the help, mercy, and Grace of Almighty God. This is the reason that faith in and prayer to God are correlated with morality.” (Rev. George Mastrantonis)

“Our conduct speaks volumes about what we believe…You conduct should match your faith…. Character is the root of the tree, conduct, the fruit it bears…Conduct is what we do, character is what we are…Lasting changes in conduct begin when the Holy Spirit lives in each person.” (E. M. Bounds, Life Application Study Bible, Titus 1:16, Colossians 3:10, Hebrews 13:9)
