„It is not God who will save us — it is we who will save God, by battling, by creating, and by transmuting matter into spirit.“

—  Nikos Kazantzakis, buch The Saviors of God

The Saviors of God (1923)
Kontext: We do not struggle for ourselves, nor for our race, not even for humanity.
We do not struggle for Earth, nor for ideas. All these are the precious yet provisional stairs of our ascending God, and they crumble away as soon as he steps upon them in his ascent.
In the smallest lightning flash of our lives, we feel all of God treading upon us, and suddenly we understand: if we all desire it intensely, if we organize all the visible and invisible powers of earth and fling them upward, if we all battle together like fellow combatants eternally vigilant — then the Universe might possibly be saved.
It is not God who will save us — it is we who will save God, by battling, by creating, and by transmuting matter into spirit.

„I die the king's faithful servant, but God's first.“

—  Thomas More English Renaissance humanist 1478 - 1535

Words on the scaffold, attributed in The Essentials of Freedom : The Idea and Practice of Ordered Liberty in the Twentieth Century as explored at Kenyon College (1960) by Paul Gray Hoffman, p. 43
First reported in indirect speech in the Paris Newsletter (1535): « Apres les exhorta, et supplia tres instamment qu'ils priassent Dieu pour le Roy, affin qu'il luy voulsist donner bon conseil, protestant qu'il mouroit son bon serviteur et de Dieu premierement. » ("Afterward he exhorted them, and besought them very earnestly to pray to God for the King, that He should give him good counsel, protesting that he died his good servant, and God's first.")

„We recognize no sovereign but God, and no king but Jesus!“

—  John Adams 2nd President of the United States 1735 - 1826

Originally attributed to the “Rev. Jonas Clarke or one of his company” in “No King But King Jesus” (2001) ( cache at Internet Archive http://web.archive.org/web/20010422194315/www.truthinhistory.org/NoKing.htm) by Charles A. Jennings on his website Truth in History http://www.truthinhistory.org, and subsequently attributed to Adams in books like Is God with America?‎ (2006) by Bob Klingenberg, p. 208, and Silenced in the Schoolhouse (2008) by Michael Williams, p. 5. (The mistake may have come about because John Adams and John Hancock are mentioned in Jennings' account immediately before Clark.) This is supposed to have been said in reply to Major Pitcairn's demand to “Disperse, ye villains, lay down your arms in the name of George the Sovereign King of England.” Clark's own account http://books.google.com/books?id=9S8eAAAAMAAJ&pg=PA6#v=onepage&q&f=false makes no mention or this (or any other) reply, however. “No king but King Jesus” was the slogan of the Fifth Monarchists https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fifth_Monarchists during the Interregnum in England, but there is little evidence for its use during the American Revolution.

„The saving of anyone is something which is not in the power of man, but only of God. No one can be saved — in virtue of what he can do. Everyone can be saved — in virtue of what God can do.“

—  Karl Barth, buch Church Dogmatics

2:2 <!-- p. 625 -->
Church Dogmatics (1932–1968)
Kontext: The saving of anyone is something which is not in the power of man, but only of God. No one can be saved — in virtue of what he can do. Everyone can be saved — in virtue of what God can do. The divine claim takes the form that it puts both the obedient and the disobedient together and compels them to realise this, to recognise their common status in face of the commanding God.

Vingt ans après (Twenty Years After) (1845)
Kontext: Learn ever to separate the king and the principle of royalty. The king is but man; royalty is the spirit of God. When you are in doubt as to which you should serve, forsake the material appearance for the invisible principle, for this is everything.
