Best Quotes about Churches
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
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.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio
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.
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.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
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.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
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.
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.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
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.
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
It is indolence... Indolence and love of ease; a want of all laudable ambition, of taste for good company, or of inclination to take the trouble of being agreeable, which make men clergymen. A clergyman has nothing to do but be slovenly and selfish; read the newspaper, watch the weather, and quarrel with his wife. His curate does all the work and the business of his own life is to dine.
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
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.
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.
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 local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.
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.
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
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 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.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
How can a bishop marry? How can he flirt? The most he can say is I will see you in the vestry after service.
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
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.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
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.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry
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 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.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
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.
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
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.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.
My own mind is my own church.
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
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
