Best Quotes about Churches
But a priest's life is not supposed to be well-rounded; it is supposed to be one-pointed -- a compass, not a weathercock.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.
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
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.
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.
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.
Beecher, Henry Ward
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
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.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
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
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
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 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.
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
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 priesthood in many ways is the ultimate closet in Western civilization, where gay people particularly have hidden for the past two thousand years.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
The priesthood is a marriage. People often start by falling in love, and they go on for years without realizing that love must change into some other love which is so unlike it that it can hardly be recognized as love at all.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
How can a bishop marry? How can he flirt? The most he can say is I will see you in the vestry after service.
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
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.
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.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
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.
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.
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.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry
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
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
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
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
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.
