Best Quotes about Churches
Those who marry God can become domesticated too -- it's just as hum-drum a marriage as all the others. The word Love means a formal touch of the lips as in the ceremony of the Mass, and Ave Marialike dearest is a phrase to open a letter. This marriage like the world's marriages was held together by habits and tastes shared in common between God and themselves -- it was God's taste to be worshipped and their taste to worship, but only at stated hours like a suburban embrace on a Saturday night.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
The difference between listening to a radio sermon and going to church...is almost like the difference between calling your girl on the phone and spending an evening with her.
Moody, Dwight L.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.
A glorious Church is like a magnificent feast; there is all the variety that may be, but every one chooses out a dish or two that he likes, and lets the rest alone: how glorious soever the Church is, every one chooses out of it his own religion, by which he governs himself, and lets the rest alone.
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard
The root of almost every schism and heresy from which the Christian Church has suffered, has been because of the effort of men to earn, rather than receive their salvation; and the reason preaching is so commonly ineffective is, that it often calls on people to work for God rather than letting God work through them.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry
Yes, I see the Church as the body of Christ. But, oh! How we have blemished and scarred that body through social neglect and through fear of being nonconformists.
King Jr. Martin Luther
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
I never saw, heard, nor read, that the clergy were beloved in any nation where Christianity was the religion of the country. Nothing can render them popular, but some degree of persecution.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
I never weary of great churches. It is my favorite kind of mountain scenery. Mankind was never so happily inspired as when it made a cathedral.
Stevenson, Robert Louis
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
The Church cannot be content to live in its stained-glass house and throw stones through the picture window of modern culture.
Brown, Robert Mcafee
The act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
What is wrong with priests and popes is that instead of being apostles and saints, they are nothing but empirics who say I know instead of I am learning, and pray for credulity and inertia as wise men pray for skepticism and activity.
Shaw, George Bernard
It is one of the ironies of the ministry that the very man who works in God's name is often hardest put to find time for God. The parents of Jesus lost Him at church, and they were not the last ones to lose Him there.
I'm a priest, not a priestess. Priestess implies mumbo jumbo and all sorts of pagan goings-on. Those who oppose us would love to call us priestesses. They can call us all the names in the world -- it's better than being invisible.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
Mass ought to be in Latin, unless you could do it in Greek or Chinese. In fact, any abracadabra that no bloody member of the public or half-educated ape of a clargimint could think he understood.
The church exists to train its member through the practice of the presence of God to be servants of others, to the end that Christlikeness may become common property.
Brown, William Adams
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio
The priesthood is a marriage. People often start by falling in love, and they go on for years without realizing that love must change into some other love which is so unlike it that it can hardly be recognized as love at all.
Many are called but few are chosen. There are sayings of Christ which suggest that the Church he came to establish will always be a minority affair.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
The question confronting the Church today is not any longer whether the man in the street can grasp a religious message, but how to employ the communications media so as to let him have the full impact of the Gospel message.
John Paul II
A full-dressed ecclesiastic is a sort of go-cart of divinity; an ethical automaton. A clerical prig is, in general, a very dangerous as well as contemptible character. The utmost that those who thus habitually confound their opinions and sentiments with the outside coverings of their bodies can aspire to, is a negative and neutral character, like wax-work figures, where the dress is done as much to the life as the man, and where both are respectable pieces of pasteboard, or harmless compositions of fleecy hosiery.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
An instinctive taste teaches men to build their churches with spire steeples which point as with a silent finger to the sky and stars.
Coleridge, Samuel Taylor
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.
If church prelates, past or present, had even an inkling of physiology they'd realize that what they term this inner ugliness creates and nourishes the hearing ear, the seeing eye, the active mind, and energetic body of man and woman, in the same way that dirt and dung at the roots give the plant its delicate leaves and the full-blown rose.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.
Here, the churches seemed to shrink away into eroding corners. They seem to have ceased to be essential parts of American life. They no longer give life. It is the huge buildings of commerce and trade which now align the people to attention. These in their massive manner of steel and stone say, Come unto me all ye who labor, and we will give you work.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.
