Best Quotes about Churches
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green
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.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.
Beecher, Henry Ward
My own mind is my own church.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.
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.
How can a bishop marry? How can he flirt? The most he can say is I will see you in the vestry after service.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
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.
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 Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
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
The priesthood in many ways is the ultimate closet in Western civilization, where gay people particularly have hidden for the past two thousand years.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
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
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.
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.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
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
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
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.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
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 first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.
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.
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?
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 local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.
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.
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.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
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
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 act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
