Best Quotes about Churches
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green
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.
How can a bishop marry? How can he flirt? The most he can say is I will see you in the vestry after service.
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.
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
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.
The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.
Beecher, Henry Ward
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.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
My own mind is my own church.
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.
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.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
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.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
The priesthood in many ways is the ultimate closet in Western civilization, where gay people particularly have hidden for the past two thousand years.
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?
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
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.
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.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De
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.
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 Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
The church is so subnormal that if it ever got back to the New Testament normal it would seem to people to be abnormal.
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.
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 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 old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
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
A woman's asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person's demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
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
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.
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 act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
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 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.
