Churches

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

Churches Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Churches

1.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.

2.
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

3.
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

4.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard

5.
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

6.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
Fuller, Thomas

7.
My own mind is my own church.
Paine, Thomas

8.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
Joyce, James

9.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio

10.
She say, Celie, tell the truth, have you ever found God in church? I never did. I just found a bunch of folks hoping for him to show. Any God I ever felt in church I brought in with me. And I think all the other folks did too. They come to church to share God, not find God.
Walker, Alice

11.
One hundred religious persons knit into a unity by careful organizations do not constitute a church any more than eleven dead men make a football team. The first requisite is life, always.
Tozer, A. W.

12.
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?

13.
The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.
Beecher, Henry Ward

14.
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

15.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
Cowper, William

16.
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

17.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
Voltaire

18.
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.
Selden, John

19.
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

20.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
Proverb, French

21.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
Penn, William

22.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
Chadwick, Henry

23.
The act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
Pound, Ezra

24.
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

25.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.

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

27.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.

28.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
Carey, George

29.
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
Shedd, Charlie

30.
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.

31.
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

32.
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

33.
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

34.
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.

35.
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

36.
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

37.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.

38.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
Proverb, Irish

39.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
Johnson, Samuel

40.
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

41.
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

42.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
Amis, Kingsley

43.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.

44.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
Defoe, Daniel

45.
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
Graham, Billy

46.
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

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

49.
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

50.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
Thomson, James
