Best Quotes about Churches
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 local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
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
A woman's asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person's demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
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.
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.
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 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 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.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
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.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
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
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
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
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.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
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 little, round, fat, oily man of God.
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.
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.
But a priest's life is not supposed to be well-rounded; it is supposed to be one-pointed -- a compass, not a weathercock.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
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.
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.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
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.
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.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
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
