Churches

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
Churches Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Churches

1.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
Wilder, Billy

2.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De

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

4.
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
Weil, Simone

5.
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

6.
The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.
Beecher, Henry Ward

7.
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.

8.
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.

9.
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.
Selden, John

10.
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

11.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
Carey, George

12.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.

13.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.

14.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
Defoe, Daniel

15.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
Havner, Vance

16.
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.
Ruskin, John

17.
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.

18.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
Luther, Martin

19.
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.

20.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
Penn, William

21.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
Voltaire

22.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry

23.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
Amis, Kingsley

24.
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.
O'Casey, Sean

25.
The act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
Pound, Ezra

26.
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.
Norman, Edward

27.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
Atkinson, Brooks

28.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
Ruskin, John

29.
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.

30.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.

31.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
Thomson, James

32.
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

33.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
Chadwick, Henry

34.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
Fielding, Henry

35.
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

36.
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

37.
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

38.
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

39.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
Johnson, Samuel

40.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
Proverb, French

41.
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?

42.
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
Shedd, Charlie

43.
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

44.
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

45.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
Joyce, James

46.
But a priest's life is not supposed to be well-rounded; it is supposed to be one-pointed -- a compass, not a weathercock.
Huxley, Aldous

47.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
Thomson, James

48.
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.

49.
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.
Murdoch, Iris

50.
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
