And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother'

And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
Luke the Evangelist
The Sermon on the Mount…went straight to my heart. I compared it with the Gita. My young mind tried to unify the teaching of the Gita, the `Light of Asia’ and the Sermon on the Mount. That renunciation was the highest form of religion appealed to me greatly.
Mahatma Gandhi
The basis for the ethics of the Sermon on the Mount is not what works, but rather who God is.

Conclude not from all this that I have renounced the Christian religion. . . . Far from it. I see in every page something to recommend Christianity in its purity, and something to discredit its corruptions. . . . The ten commandments and the sermon on the mount contain my religion.
John Adams

Ask and it shall be given you; Seek and ye shall find; Knock and it shall be opened unto you. For everyone that asketh, receiveth; And he that seeketh, Findeth; and to him that knocketh It shall be opened. Aspire not to have more, but to be more.
Oscar Romero

Matthew is the only gospel that uses the Sermon on the Mount, for example, because that’s the new Moses making a new interpretation of the law on a new mountain. So then you begin to put all these things together, and I don’t know how you can make sense out of that book if you don’t know the Jewish background.
John Shelby Spong
The restoration of the church must surely depend on a new kind of monasticism, which has nothing in common with the old but a life of uncompromising discipleship, following Christ according to the sermon on the mount.В  I believe the time has come to gather people together to do this.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer
