Best Quotes about Churches
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.
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.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
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
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
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.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
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.
The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.
Beecher, Henry Ward
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
A woman's asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person's demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan.
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
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 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 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
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
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 believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
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
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.
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.
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
The act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
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.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.
My own mind is my own church.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.
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.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
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.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.
The priesthood in many ways is the ultimate closet in Western civilization, where gay people particularly have hidden for the past two thousand years.
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
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
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.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green
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
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard
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.
