Best Quotes about Churches
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
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.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
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
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
A woman's asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person's demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
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.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
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.
What makes a church great in the eyes of God? Participation, proclamation, preservation, and propagation. Every church ought to exhibit all four.
Hawkins, O. S.
The act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
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.
But a priest's life is not supposed to be well-rounded; it is supposed to be one-pointed -- a compass, not a weathercock.
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 have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
My own mind is my own church.
The church is so subnormal that if it ever got back to the New Testament normal it would seem to people to be abnormal.
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.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
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.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
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 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 Church cannot be content to live in its stained-glass house and throw stones through the picture window of modern culture.
Brown, Robert Mcafee
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.
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 people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
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.
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
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.
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.
