Best Quotes about Churches
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
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.
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
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.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.
The priesthood in many ways is the ultimate closet in Western civilization, where gay people particularly have hidden for the past two thousand years.
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.
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.
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.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.
A woman's asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person's demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan.
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.
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
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 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.
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.
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
The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.
Beecher, Henry Ward
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 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.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio
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's about time we quit playing church in these services that start at eleven o clock sharp and end at twelve o clock dull.
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
My own mind is my own church.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.
How can a bishop marry? How can he flirt? The most he can say is I will see you in the vestry after service.
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.
But a priest's life is not supposed to be well-rounded; it is supposed to be one-pointed -- a compass, not a weathercock.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
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
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.
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.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
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.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry
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
