Best Quotes about Churches
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
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.
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
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.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
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.
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.
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
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
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.
The church is so subnormal that if it ever got back to the New Testament normal it would seem to people to be abnormal.
The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.
Beecher, Henry Ward
A woman's asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person's demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De
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
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
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.
My own mind is my own church.
How can a bishop marry? How can he flirt? The most he can say is I will see you in the vestry after service.
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.
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
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.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
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 have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
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.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
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 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
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.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
