Best Quotes about Churches
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
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
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
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
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.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry
How can a bishop marry? How can he flirt? The most he can say is I will see you in the vestry after service.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
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.
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.
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.
But a priest's life is not supposed to be well-rounded; it is supposed to be one-pointed -- a compass, not a weathercock.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
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
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.
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.
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 little, round, fat, oily man of God.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
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.
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
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.
The priesthood in many ways is the ultimate closet in Western civilization, where gay people particularly have hidden for the past two thousand years.
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 Church cannot be content to live in its stained-glass house and throw stones through the picture window of modern culture.
Brown, Robert Mcafee
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
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?
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
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.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio
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 Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
The church is so subnormal that if it ever got back to the New Testament normal it would seem to people to be abnormal.
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.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard
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.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De
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.
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.
