Best Quotes about Churches
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
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
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.
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
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.
My own mind is my own church.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green
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.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
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
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
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
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
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 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.
The act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
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.
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.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
What makes a church great in the eyes of God? Participation, proclamation, preservation, and propagation. Every church ought to exhibit all four.
Hawkins, O. S.
The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.
Beecher, Henry Ward
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
The church is so subnormal that if it ever got back to the New Testament normal it would seem to people to be abnormal.
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.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
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.
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
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
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
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 first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
But a priest's life is not supposed to be well-rounded; it is supposed to be one-pointed -- a compass, not a weathercock.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard
