Best Quotes about Churches
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.
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.
A woman's asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person's demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
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
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
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.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
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
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.
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.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
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.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
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.
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 parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
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 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.
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
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.
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
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
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.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
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.
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.
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.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
My own mind is my own church.
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 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 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
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
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
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De
