Best Quotes about Churches

1.
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

2.
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
Graham, Billy

3.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.

4.
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

5.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
Carey, George

6.
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

7.
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.
Hazlitt, William

8.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.

9.
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.

10.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
Joyce, James

11.
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.
Calvin, John

12.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
Wilder, Billy

13.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard

14.
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.

15.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.

16.
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

17.
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

18.
A woman's asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person's demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan.
Daly, Mary

19.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
Johnson, Samuel

20.
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.

21.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
Penn, William

22.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio

23.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.

24.
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.

25.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
Amis, Kingsley

26.
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.

27.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.

28.
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?

29.
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.

30.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
Chadwick, Henry

31.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
Voltaire

32.
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.

33.
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.
Greene, Graham

34.
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

35.
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.
Norman, Edward

36.
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.
Murdoch, Iris

37.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.

38.
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
Wesley, John

39.
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
Shedd, Charlie

40.
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green

41.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
Fielding, Henry

42.
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.
Pound, Ezra

43.
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

44.
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

45.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
Ruskin, John

46.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
Melbourne, Lord

47.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
Proverb, Irish

48.
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

49.
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

50.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
Havner, Vance
