Churches

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
Churches Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Churches

1.
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Smith, Sydney

2.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
Carey, George

3.
Those who marry God can become domesticated too -- it's just as hum-drum a marriage as all the others. The word Love means a formal touch of the lips as in the ceremony of the Mass, and Ave Marialike dearest is a phrase to open a letter. This marriage like the world's marriages was held together by habits and tastes shared in common between God and themselves -- it was God's taste to be worshipped and their taste to worship, but only at stated hours like a suburban embrace on a Saturday night.
Greene, Graham

4.
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
Graham, Billy

5.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
Ruskin, John

6.
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

7.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio

8.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
Chadwick, Henry

9.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.

10.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.

11.
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

12.
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

13.
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

14.
The act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
Pound, Ezra

15.
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.

16.
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

17.
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

18.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
Wilder, Billy

19.
She say, Celie, tell the truth, have you ever found God in church? I never did. I just found a bunch of folks hoping for him to show. Any God I ever felt in church I brought in with me. And I think all the other folks did too. They come to church to share God, not find God.
Walker, Alice

20.
A full-dressed ecclesiastic is a sort of go-cart of divinity; an ethical automaton. A clerical prig is, in general, a very dangerous as well as contemptible character. The utmost that those who thus habitually confound their opinions and sentiments with the outside coverings of their bodies can aspire to, is a negative and neutral character, like wax-work figures, where the dress is done as much to the life as the man, and where both are respectable pieces of pasteboard, or harmless compositions of fleecy hosiery.
Hazlitt, William

21.
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

22.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
Voltaire

23.
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
Weil, Simone

24.
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.

25.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De

26.
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

27.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
Cowper, William

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.
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

30.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
Havner, Vance

31.
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.

32.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
Joyce, James

33.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
Defoe, Daniel

34.
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
Shedd, Charlie

35.
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.

36.
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.

37.
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

38.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
Penn, William

39.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
Amis, Kingsley

40.
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.
Austen, Jane

41.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
Luther, Martin

42.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
Carey, George

43.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
Johnson, Samuel

44.
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

45.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
Proverb, French

46.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
Atkinson, Brooks

47.
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.

48.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
Proverb, Irish

49.
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

50.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard
