Best Quotes about Churches
But a priest's life is not supposed to be well-rounded; it is supposed to be one-pointed -- a compass, not a weathercock.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard
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.
My own mind is my own church.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
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
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
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.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
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.
It is one of the ironies of the ministry that the very man who works in God's name is often hardest put to find time for God. The parents of Jesus lost Him at church, and they were not the last ones to lose Him there.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
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
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
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 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.
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.
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.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
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.
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
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.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De
The church is so subnormal that if it ever got back to the New Testament normal it would seem to people to be abnormal.
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.
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.
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.
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
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 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.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
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.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
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 who is near the Church is often far from God.
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.
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
The priesthood in many ways is the ultimate closet in Western civilization, where gay people particularly have hidden for the past two thousand years.
