Best Quotes about Churches
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 woman's asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person's demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
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.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
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.
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.
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.
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.
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 parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
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 local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.
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.
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 have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.
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 old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
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
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 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.
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
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
My own mind is my own church.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De
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
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.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
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 priesthood in many ways is the ultimate closet in Western civilization, where gay people particularly have hidden for the past two thousand years.
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
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.
