Churches Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Churches

1.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
Ruskin, John

2.
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Smith, Sydney

3.
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

4.
The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.
Beecher, Henry Ward

5.
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.

6.
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

7.
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.

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

9.
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

10.
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.

11.
My own mind is my own church.
Paine, Thomas

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

13.
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

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.
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.

16.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
Voltaire

17.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
Melbourne, Lord

18.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
Proverb, French

19.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
Penn, William

20.
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

21.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
Fuller, Thomas

22.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
Cowper, William

23.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.

24.
The act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
Pound, Ezra

25.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
Carey, George

26.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
Fielding, Henry

27.
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
Weil, Simone

28.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
Proverb, Irish

29.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
Johnson, Samuel

30.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De

31.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry

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

34.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
Thomson, James

35.
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
Wesley, John

36.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
Luther, Martin

37.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.

38.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard

39.
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green

40.
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.

41.
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

42.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
Carlyle, Thomas

43.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
Havner, Vance

44.
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

45.
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

46.
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

47.
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

48.
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

49.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
Atkinson, Brooks

50.
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
