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.
Best Quotes about Churches
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
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
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 itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry
The priesthood in many ways is the ultimate closet in Western civilization, where gay people particularly have hidden for the past two thousand years.
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?
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
How can a bishop marry? How can he flirt? The most he can say is I will see you in the vestry after service.
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
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
A woman's asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person's demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.
My own mind is my own church.
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.
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
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.
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.
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.
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 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.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
The act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.
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.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
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.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
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
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
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.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
