Best Quotes about Churches
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.
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 itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
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.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
The act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
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.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
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
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.
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.
A woman's asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person's demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan.
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
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
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
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.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard
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.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
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.
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.
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 priesthood in many ways is the ultimate closet in Western civilization, where gay people particularly have hidden for the past two thousand years.
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.
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.
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.
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.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.
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.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
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 Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
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
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
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
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.
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
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.
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
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.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
