Churches

The act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
- Pound, Ezra
Churches Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Churches

1.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.

2.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
Havner, Vance

3.
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

4.
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

5.
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

6.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.

7.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.

8.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard

9.
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

10.
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

11.
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

12.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.

13.
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.

14.
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

15.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
Defoe, Daniel

16.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
Carey, George

17.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
Cowper, William

18.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
Atkinson, Brooks

19.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
Carlyle, Thomas

20.
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.

21.
The act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
Pound, Ezra

22.
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green

23.
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.

24.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
Thomson, James

25.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
Proverb, French

26.
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

27.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
Melbourne, Lord

28.
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

29.
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

30.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
Voltaire

31.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
Fuller, Thomas

32.
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?

33.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
Ruskin, John

34.
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

35.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
Fielding, Henry

36.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
Penn, William

37.
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

38.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
Luther, Martin

39.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.

40.
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
Shedd, Charlie

41.
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

42.
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

43.
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.

44.
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

45.
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

46.
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

47.
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

48.
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
Graham, Billy

49.
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

50.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio
