Best Quotes about Churches
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
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.
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.
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.
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
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.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
The church is so subnormal that if it ever got back to the New Testament normal it would seem to people to be abnormal.
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.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.
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.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De
The priesthood in many ways is the ultimate closet in Western civilization, where gay people particularly have hidden for the past two thousand years.
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
A group touring Westminster Abbey in London heard the guide list the famous people buried within its walls. During a momentary silence a little old lady's voice blurted out loud and clear, Anybody been saved here lately?
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.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
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.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
The church exists to train its member through the practice of the presence of God to be servants of others, to the end that Christlikeness may become common property.
Brown, William Adams
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.
Beecher, Henry Ward
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
A woman's asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person's demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan.
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
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.
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
The act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
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
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.
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.
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
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.
But a priest's life is not supposed to be well-rounded; it is supposed to be one-pointed -- a compass, not a weathercock.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
