Churches

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.
- Calvin, John
Churches Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Churches

1.
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.
Heyward, Carter

2.
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.
Havner, Vance

3.
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

4.
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

5.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
Penn, William

6.
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.
Austen, Jane

7.
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.

8.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
Carey, George

9.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.

10.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
Amis, Kingsley

11.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De

12.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.

13.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
Carey, George

14.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
Thomson, James

15.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
Joyce, James

16.
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
Weil, Simone

17.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
Wilder, Billy

18.
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

19.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
Proverb, Irish

20.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
Fuller, Thomas

21.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.

22.
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.

23.
The act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
Pound, Ezra

24.
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
Shedd, Charlie

25.
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.
Pound, Ezra

26.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
Voltaire

27.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.

28.
A woman's asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person's demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan.
Daly, Mary

29.
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

30.
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.
Havner, Vance

31.
The church is so subnormal that if it ever got back to the New Testament normal it would seem to people to be abnormal.
Havner, Vance

32.
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.

33.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
Proverb, French

34.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
Cowper, William

35.
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.
Hazlitt, William

36.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
Thomson, James

37.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
Chadwick, Henry

38.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
Atkinson, Brooks

39.
How can a bishop marry? How can he flirt? The most he can say is I will see you in the vestry after service.
Smith, Sydney

40.
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

41.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
Defoe, Daniel

42.
My own mind is my own church.
Paine, Thomas

43.
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.
Cheever, John

44.
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.
O'Casey, Sean

45.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.

46.
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.
Ruskin, John

47.
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

48.
The Christian church is a society of sinners. It is the only society in the world, membership in which is based upon the single qualification that the candidate shall be unworthy of membership.
Morrison, Charles C.

49.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry

50.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
Ruskin, John
