Best Quotes about Churches
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
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.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio
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.
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.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
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.
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
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.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
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 is so subnormal that if it ever got back to the New Testament normal it would seem to people to be abnormal.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
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
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.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.
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.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
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'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
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry
But a priest's life is not supposed to be well-rounded; it is supposed to be one-pointed -- a compass, not a weathercock.
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 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.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
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 parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
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
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.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.
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.
The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.
Beecher, Henry Ward
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
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.
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
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
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
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
