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

Churches Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Churches

1.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
Melbourne, Lord

2.
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

3.
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

4.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard

5.
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

6.
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.

7.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
Fielding, Henry

8.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.

9.
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
Shedd, Charlie

10.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
Johnson, Samuel

11.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
Penn, William

12.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.

13.
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

14.
But a priest's life is not supposed to be well-rounded; it is supposed to be one-pointed -- a compass, not a weathercock.
Huxley, Aldous

15.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
Voltaire

16.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
Carey, George

17.
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
Wesley, John

18.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
Amis, Kingsley

19.
I never saw, heard, nor read, that the clergy were beloved in any nation where Christianity was the religion of the country. Nothing can render them popular, but some degree of persecution.
Swift, Jonathan

20.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
Thomson, James

21.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
Cowper, William

22.
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.
Norman, Edward

23.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De

24.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
Carlyle, Thomas

25.
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.

26.
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

27.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
Proverb, French

28.
The act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
Pound, Ezra

29.
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.

30.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio

31.
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.
Greene, Graham

32.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
Joyce, James

33.
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.
Walker, Alice

34.
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.

35.
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.

36.
My own mind is my own church.
Paine, Thomas

37.
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

38.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.

39.
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.

40.
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
Weil, Simone

41.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
Wilder, Billy

42.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.

43.
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

44.
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

45.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
Luther, Martin

46.
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

47.
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

48.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
Thomson, James

49.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
Carey, George

50.
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
