Best Quotes about Churches
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry
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
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.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
A woman's asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person's demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan.
The act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
Mass ought to be in Latin, unless you could do it in Greek or Chinese. In fact, any abracadabra that no bloody member of the public or half-educated ape of a clargimint could think he understood.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
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.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
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 has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.
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.
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.
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
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.
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 greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.
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 local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.
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.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
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.
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.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De
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.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
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 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.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.
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
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.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
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
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
