Best Quotes about Churches

1.
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

2.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
Carlyle, Thomas

3.
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

4.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
Fielding, Henry

5.
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.

6.
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

7.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
Wilder, Billy

8.
The act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
Pound, Ezra

9.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
Atkinson, Brooks

10.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
Johnson, Samuel

11.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.

12.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard

13.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
Carey, George

14.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
Havner, Vance

15.
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?

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

17.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
Defoe, Daniel

18.
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

19.
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green

20.
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

21.
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

22.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.

23.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
Penn, William

24.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
Ruskin, John

25.
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.

26.
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.

27.
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.
Havner, Vance

28.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio

29.
My own mind is my own church.
Paine, Thomas

30.
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

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

32.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
Fuller, Thomas

33.
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

34.
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

35.
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.

36.
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
Shedd, Charlie

37.
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

38.
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

39.
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Smith, Sydney

40.
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

41.
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
Graham, Billy

42.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.

43.
It is indolence... Indolence and love of ease; a want of all laudable ambition, of taste for good company, or of inclination to take the trouble of being agreeable, which make men clergymen. A clergyman has nothing to do but be slovenly and selfish; read the newspaper, watch the weather, and quarrel with his wife. His curate does all the work and the business of his own life is to dine.
Austen, Jane

44.
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.

45.
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

46.
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

47.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
Thomson, James

48.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De

49.
How can a bishop marry? How can he flirt? The most he can say is I will see you in the vestry after service.
Smith, Sydney

50.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.
