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.
Churches Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Churches

1.
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

2.
The priesthood in many ways is the ultimate closet in Western civilization, where gay people particularly have hidden for the past two thousand years.
Spong, John

3.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
Fuller, Thomas

4.
Here, the churches seemed to shrink away into eroding corners. They seem to have ceased to be essential parts of American life. They no longer give life. It is the huge buildings of commerce and trade which now align the people to attention. These in their massive manner of steel and stone say, Come unto me all ye who labor, and we will give you work.
O'Casey, Sean

5.
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

6.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.

7.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
Carey, George

8.
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Smith, Sydney

9.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.

10.
The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.
Beecher, Henry Ward

11.
How can a bishop marry? How can he flirt? The most he can say is I will see you in the vestry after service.
Smith, Sydney

12.
If church prelates, past or present, had even an inkling of physiology they'd realize that what they term this inner ugliness creates and nourishes the hearing ear, the seeing eye, the active mind, and energetic body of man and woman, in the same way that dirt and dung at the roots give the plant its delicate leaves and the full-blown rose.
O'Casey, Sean

13.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard

14.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
Defoe, Daniel

15.
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

16.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De

17.
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

18.
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
Shedd, Charlie

19.
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
Wesley, John

20.
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

21.
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

22.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
Wilder, Billy

23.
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.

24.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
Thomson, James

25.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
Melbourne, Lord

26.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
Penn, William

27.
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

28.
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

29.
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.

30.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.

31.
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.

32.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.

33.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
Carlyle, Thomas

34.
The act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
Pound, Ezra

35.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
Thomson, James

36.
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

37.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
Amis, Kingsley

38.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
Proverb, French

39.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.

40.
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.
Paine, Thomas

41.
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.

42.
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

43.
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.
Cheever, John

44.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry

45.
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green

46.
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

47.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
Voltaire

48.
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

49.
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
Graham, Billy

50.
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.
