Best Quotes about Churches
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
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
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 parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.
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
My own mind is my own church.
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
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 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 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 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.
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.
But a priest's life is not supposed to be well-rounded; it is supposed to be one-pointed -- a compass, not a weathercock.
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 old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
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 act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
How can a bishop marry? How can he flirt? The most he can say is I will see you in the vestry after service.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De
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
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
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.
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
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.
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.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
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
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
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 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.
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.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
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.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
