Best Quotes about Churches
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
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.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard
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.
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
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.
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
My own mind is my own church.
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
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.
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 Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
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.
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
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
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.
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.
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.
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.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
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 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.
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.
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 act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.
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
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.
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.
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
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
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.
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 has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
