Best Quotes about Churches

1.
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.

2.
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.
Selden, John

3.
A woman's asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person's demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan.
Daly, Mary

4.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
Chadwick, Henry

5.
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

6.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
Amis, Kingsley

7.
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.
Calvin, John

8.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
Joyce, James

9.
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

10.
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.
Norman, Edward

11.
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.

12.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
Luther, Martin

13.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
Fielding, Henry

14.
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green

15.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
Wilder, Billy

16.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard

17.
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.

18.
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.
Swift, Jonathan

19.
The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.
Beecher, Henry Ward

20.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
Cowper, William

21.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.

22.
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Smith, Sydney

23.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
Proverb, Irish

24.
The church is so subnormal that if it ever got back to the New Testament normal it would seem to people to be abnormal.
Havner, Vance

25.
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.
Ruskin, John

26.
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

27.
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.
Havner, Vance

28.
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

29.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
Carey, George

30.
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
Wesley, John

31.
But a priest's life is not supposed to be well-rounded; it is supposed to be one-pointed -- a compass, not a weathercock.
Huxley, Aldous

32.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
Atkinson, Brooks

33.
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.
Havner, Vance

34.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
Carlyle, Thomas

35.
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.

36.
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.

37.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
Havner, Vance

38.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.

39.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
Defoe, Daniel

40.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
Ruskin, John

41.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
Thomson, James

42.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
Carey, George

43.
My own mind is my own church.
Paine, Thomas

44.
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.
Pound, Ezra

45.
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

46.
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

47.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
Johnson, Samuel

48.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
Melbourne, Lord

49.
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

50.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De
