Best Quotes about Churches
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
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
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
My own mind is my own church.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.
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 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
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
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.
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
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, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
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?
The priesthood in many ways is the ultimate closet in Western civilization, where gay people particularly have hidden for the past two thousand years.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
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
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
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.
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.
The church is so subnormal that if it ever got back to the New Testament normal it would seem to people to be abnormal.
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.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
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.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
A woman's asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person's demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan.
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
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.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.
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.
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
But a priest's life is not supposed to be well-rounded; it is supposed to be one-pointed -- a compass, not a weathercock.
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
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.
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.
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
The act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
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.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.
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
How can a bishop marry? How can he flirt? The most he can say is I will see you in the vestry after service.
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.
