Best Quotes about Churches
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio
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.
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.
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
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.
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
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 root of almost every schism and heresy from which the Christian Church has suffered, has been because of the effort of men to earn, rather than receive their salvation; and the reason preaching is so commonly ineffective is, that it often calls on people to work for God rather than letting God work through them.
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
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 act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
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 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.
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
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.
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
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.
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 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
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.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
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
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
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.
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
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.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry
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.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
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.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.
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
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.
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.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.
A woman's asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person's demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan.
My own mind is my own church.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
