Best Quotes about Churches
A woman's asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person's demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
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.
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.
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 church is so subnormal that if it ever got back to the New Testament normal it would seem to people to be abnormal.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
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.
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
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
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.
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.
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.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
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
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.
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 come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.
Beecher, Henry Ward
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 Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
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 act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
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.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
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
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
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.
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
How can a bishop marry? How can he flirt? The most he can say is I will see you in the vestry after service.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio
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.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De
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.
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.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
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.
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
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
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.
