Best Quotes about Churches
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.
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 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
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
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.
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
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.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio
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 itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry
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.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.
A woman's asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person's demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan.
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
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
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.
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.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
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.
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.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De
My own mind is my own church.
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
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
The church is so subnormal that if it ever got back to the New Testament normal it would seem to people to be abnormal.
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
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.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.
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.
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.
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.
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
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
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.
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.
