Best Quotes about Churches
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
I do not believe in the creed professed by the Jewish Church, by the Roman Church, by the Greek Church, by the Turkish Church, by the Protestant Church, nor by any church that I know of. My own mind is my own church.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry
But a priest's life is not supposed to be well-rounded; it is supposed to be one-pointed -- a compass, not a weathercock.
It's about time we quit playing church in these services that start at eleven o clock sharp and end at twelve o clock dull.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
His creed no parson ever knew, for this was still his simple plan, to have with clergymen to do as little as a Christian can.
Doyle, Sir Francis
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
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
She say, Celie, tell the truth, have you ever found God in church? I never did. I just found a bunch of folks hoping for him to show. Any God I ever felt in church I brought in with me. And I think all the other folks did too. They come to church to share God, not find God.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
One hundred religious persons knit into a unity by careful organizations do not constitute a church any more than eleven dead men make a football team. The first requisite is life, always.
Tozer, A. W.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
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.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
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.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
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.
My own mind is my own church.
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 think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
A church is a place in which gentlemen who have never been to heaven brag about it to persons who will never get there.
Mencken, H. L.
A woman's asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person's demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
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.
It is indolence... Indolence and love of ease; a want of all laudable ambition, of taste for good company, or of inclination to take the trouble of being agreeable, which make men clergymen. A clergyman has nothing to do but be slovenly and selfish; read the newspaper, watch the weather, and quarrel with his wife. His curate does all the work and the business of his own life is to dine.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De
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.
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.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.
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 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.
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
