Best Quotes about Churches
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.
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.
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.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
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.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
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 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.
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.
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
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
Wherever we find the Word of God surely preached and heard, and the sacraments administered according to the institution of Christ, there, it is not to be doubted, is a church of God.
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.
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
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.
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 old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.
Those who marry God can become domesticated too -- it's just as hum-drum a marriage as all the others. The word Love means a formal touch of the lips as in the ceremony of the Mass, and Ave Marialike dearest is a phrase to open a letter. This marriage like the world's marriages was held together by habits and tastes shared in common between God and themselves -- it was God's taste to be worshipped and their taste to worship, but only at stated hours like a suburban embrace on a Saturday night.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
A woman's asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person's demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
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.
How can a bishop marry? How can he flirt? The most he can say is I will see you in the vestry after service.
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 Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.
Beecher, Henry Ward
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
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.
The church is so subnormal that if it ever got back to the New Testament normal it would seem to people to be abnormal.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
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.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
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
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
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.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
The priesthood in many ways is the ultimate closet in Western civilization, where gay people particularly have hidden for the past two thousand years.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.
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 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.
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.
