Best Quotes about Churches
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
We praise Him, we bless Him, we adore Him, we glorify Him, and we wonder who is that baritone across the aisle and that pretty woman on our right who smells of apple blossoms. Our bowels stir and our cod itches and we amend our prayers for the spiritual life with the hope that it will not be too spiritual.
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.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.
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 greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.
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
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
My own mind is my own church.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard
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 parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
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.
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
Wherever we find the Word of God surely preached and heard, and the sacraments administered according to the institution of Christ, there, it is not to be doubted, is a church of God.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
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.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
But a priest's life is not supposed to be well-rounded; it is supposed to be one-pointed -- a compass, not a weathercock.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
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.
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.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
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.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
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.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.
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.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
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.
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
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
The separation of church and state is a source of strength, but the conscience of our nation does not call for separation between men of state and faith in the Supreme Being.
Johnson, Lyndon B.
A group touring Westminster Abbey in London heard the guide list the famous people buried within its walls. During a momentary silence a little old lady's voice blurted out loud and clear, Anybody been saved here lately?
How can a bishop marry? How can he flirt? The most he can say is I will see you in the vestry after service.
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 act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry
The church is so subnormal that if it ever got back to the New Testament normal it would seem to people to be abnormal.
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.
Standards of conduct appropriate to civil society or the workings of a democracy cannot be purely and simply applied to the Church.
Ratzinger, Cardinal Joseph
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
