Best Quotes about Churches
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
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 act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
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.
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.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
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.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De
The church is so subnormal that if it ever got back to the New Testament normal it would seem to people to be abnormal.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
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
A woman's asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person's demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
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
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green
The priesthood in many ways is the ultimate closet in Western civilization, where gay people particularly have hidden for the past two thousand years.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.
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.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
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.
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
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.
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 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.
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.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
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.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.
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.
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.
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
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.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
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
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
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.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
