Best Quotes about Churches
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.
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.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
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.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
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 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.
My own mind is my own church.
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.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
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.
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.
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.
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 Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
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.
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
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.
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?
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry
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.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. 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.
But a priest's life is not supposed to be well-rounded; it is supposed to be one-pointed -- a compass, not a weathercock.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
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 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
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.
A woman's asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person's demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan.
How can a bishop marry? How can he flirt? The most he can say is I will see you in the vestry after service.
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 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.
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.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
