Motivational Quotes

Churches

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.
- Greene, Graham
Churches Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Churches

1.
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

2.
A woman's asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person's demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan.
Daly, Mary

3.
My own mind is my own church.
Paine, Thomas

4.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
Defoe, Daniel

5.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
Proverb, Irish

6.
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Smith, Sydney

7.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
Melbourne, Lord

8.
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green

9.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
Ruskin, John

10.
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

11.
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.

12.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
Fuller, Thomas

13.
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.
Paine, Thomas

14.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
Thomson, James

15.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
Fielding, Henry

16.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
Carlyle, Thomas

17.
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.

18.
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.

19.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.

20.
The church is so subnormal that if it ever got back to the New Testament normal it would seem to people to be abnormal.
Havner, Vance

21.
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.
Austen, Jane

22.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
Thomson, James

23.
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
Shedd, Charlie

24.
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
Wesley, John

25.
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

26.
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.
Havner, Vance

27.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
Voltaire

28.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
Atkinson, Brooks

29.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
Johnson, Samuel

30.
The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.
Beecher, Henry Ward

31.
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.
Greene, Graham

32.
She say, Celie, tell the truth, have you ever found God in church? I never did. I just found a bunch of folks hoping for him to show. Any God I ever felt in church I brought in with me. And I think all the other folks did too. They come to church to share God, not find God.
Walker, Alice

33.
The priesthood in many ways is the ultimate closet in Western civilization, where gay people particularly have hidden for the past two thousand years.
Spong, John

34.
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.
Swift, Jonathan

35.
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.
Calvin, John

36.
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.

37.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio

38.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
Carey, George

39.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
Chadwick, Henry

40.
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

41.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.

42.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
Penn, William

43.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.

44.
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.
Havner, Vance

45.
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?

46.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
Luther, Martin

47.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry

48.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
Havner, Vance

49.
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.
Cheever, John

50.
How can a bishop marry? How can he flirt? The most he can say is I will see you in the vestry after service.
Smith, Sydney
