Best Quotes about Churches
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
But a priest's life is not supposed to be well-rounded; it is supposed to be one-pointed -- a compass, not a weathercock.
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
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
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.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
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.
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.
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
How can a bishop marry? How can he flirt? The most he can say is I will see you in the vestry after service.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.
Beecher, Henry Ward
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.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
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.
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
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.
Those who marry God can become domesticated too -- it's just as hum-drum a marriage as all the others. The word Love means a formal touch of the lips as in the ceremony of the Mass, and Ave Marialike dearest is a phrase to open a letter. This marriage like the world's marriages was held together by habits and tastes shared in common between God and themselves -- it was God's taste to be worshipped and their taste to worship, but only at stated hours like a suburban embrace on a Saturday night.
The priesthood in many ways is the ultimate closet in Western civilization, where gay people particularly have hidden for the past two thousand years.
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.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.
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
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?
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.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
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.
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
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.
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.
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.
