Best Quotes about Churches
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.
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.
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 is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green
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.
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 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.
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
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
My own mind is my own church.
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
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.
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?
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio
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.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
The act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De
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
The priesthood in many ways is the ultimate closet in Western civilization, where gay people particularly have hidden for the past two thousand years.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
I'm a priest, not a priestess. Priestess implies mumbo jumbo and all sorts of pagan goings-on. Those who oppose us would love to call us priestesses. They can call us all the names in the world -- it's better than being invisible.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.
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.
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
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
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
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
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
But a priest's life is not supposed to be well-rounded; it is supposed to be one-pointed -- a compass, not a weathercock.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
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.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
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.
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.
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
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.
