Churches

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
Churches Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Churches

1.
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.

2.
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

3.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
Cowper, William

4.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
Wilder, Billy

5.
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
Weil, Simone

6.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
Penn, William

7.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
Proverb, French

8.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.

9.
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.
O'Casey, Sean

10.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.

11.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De

12.
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.

13.
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

14.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
Amis, Kingsley

15.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
Fuller, Thomas

16.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
Johnson, Samuel

17.
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

18.
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
Graham, Billy

19.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
Luther, Martin

20.
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

21.
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

22.
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.

23.
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
Wesley, John

24.
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

25.
The act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
Pound, Ezra

26.
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?

27.
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

28.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
Thomson, James

29.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
Fielding, Henry

30.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
Havner, Vance

31.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
Carlyle, Thomas

32.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
Carey, George

33.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.

34.
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.
Pound, Ezra

35.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
Voltaire

36.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
Atkinson, Brooks

37.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.

38.
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.

39.
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

40.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
Joyce, James

41.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry

42.
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.

43.
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

44.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
Ruskin, John

45.
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

46.
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

47.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
Proverb, Irish

48.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
Thomson, James

49.
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

50.
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
