Churches Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Churches

1.
The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.
Beecher, Henry Ward

2.
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
Shedd, Charlie

3.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.

4.
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

5.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
Atkinson, Brooks

6.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.

7.
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

8.
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

9.
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?

10.
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
Graham, Billy

11.
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

12.
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.

13.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
Chadwick, Henry

14.
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Smith, Sydney

15.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
Carey, George

16.
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.

17.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.

18.
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.

19.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
Voltaire

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

21.
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

22.
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

23.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
Joyce, James

24.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.

25.
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

26.
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
Weil, Simone

27.
My own mind is my own church.
Paine, Thomas

28.
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

29.
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

30.
The act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
Pound, Ezra

31.
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.
Selden, John

32.
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

33.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
Carey, George

34.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.

35.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
Defoe, Daniel

36.
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.

37.
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

38.
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

39.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
Penn, William

40.
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.

41.
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.

42.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
Proverb, French

43.
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

44.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
Havner, Vance

45.
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.

46.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
Thomson, James

47.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De

48.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
Fielding, Henry

49.
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

50.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
Proverb, Irish
