Best Quotes about Churches
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green
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 act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
My own mind is my own church.
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.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
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
How can a bishop marry? How can he flirt? The most he can say is I will see you in the vestry after service.
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
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.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
The church is so subnormal that if it ever got back to the New Testament normal it would seem to people to be abnormal.
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
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
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.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard
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 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.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.
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.
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
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
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
The priesthood in many ways is the ultimate closet in Western civilization, where gay people particularly have hidden for the past two thousand years.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.
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.
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.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked 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.
The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.
Beecher, Henry Ward
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.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
A woman's asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person's demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan.
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
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
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.
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.
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.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
