Churches

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



Best Quotes about Churches

1.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
Johnson, Samuel

2.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
Carlyle, Thomas

3.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry

4.
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.

5.
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.

6.
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

7.
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

8.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio

9.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
Carey, George

10.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.

11.
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

12.
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.

13.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De

14.
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

15.
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
Wesley, John

16.
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

17.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
Fuller, Thomas

18.
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

19.
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green

20.
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?

21.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
Fielding, Henry

22.
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.

23.
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

24.
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

25.
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.

26.
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

27.
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
Shedd, Charlie

28.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
Proverb, Irish

29.
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.
O'Casey, Sean

30.
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

31.
My own mind is my own church.
Paine, Thomas

32.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
Cowper, William

33.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
Havner, Vance

34.
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

35.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
Amis, Kingsley

36.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.

37.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
Carey, George

38.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
Penn, William

39.
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.
Hazlitt, William

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

41.
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

42.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
Thomson, James

43.
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

44.
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.

45.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard

46.
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

47.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
Voltaire

48.
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

49.
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.

50.
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.
