Churches

It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
- Penn, William
Churches Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Churches

1.
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

2.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
Penn, William

3.
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

4.
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

5.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
Thomson, James

6.
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.
Paine, Thomas

7.
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

8.
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

9.
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

10.
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

11.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
Havner, Vance

12.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
Amis, Kingsley

13.
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

14.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.

15.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
Luther, Martin

16.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.

17.
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.
Heyward, Carter

18.
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.

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.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
Fielding, Henry

21.
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
Shedd, Charlie

22.
The priesthood in many ways is the ultimate closet in Western civilization, where gay people particularly have hidden for the past two thousand years.
Spong, John

23.
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.

24.
My own mind is my own church.
Paine, Thomas

25.
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.
Selden, John

26.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry

27.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
Thomson, James

28.
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.
Ruskin, John

29.
The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.
Beecher, Henry Ward

30.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
Carlyle, Thomas

31.
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.

32.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio

33.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard

34.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
Wilder, Billy

35.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.

36.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
Carey, George

37.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
Joyce, James

38.
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.

39.
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
Weil, Simone

40.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
Melbourne, Lord

41.
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.
Cheever, John

42.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
Fuller, Thomas

43.
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

44.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
Chadwick, Henry

45.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
Voltaire

46.
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
Wesley, John

47.
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.

48.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.

49.
The church is so subnormal that if it ever got back to the New Testament normal it would seem to people to be abnormal.
Havner, Vance

50.
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.
