Best Quotes about Churches
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.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.
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.
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.
The priesthood in many ways is the ultimate closet in Western civilization, where gay people particularly have hidden for the past two thousand years.
But a priest's life is not supposed to be well-rounded; it is supposed to be one-pointed -- a compass, not a weathercock.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
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 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.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.
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.
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.
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.
My own mind is my own church.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.
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
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
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
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.
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
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.
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.
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
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
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.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
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.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
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.
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
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.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
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.
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 have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
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.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. 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.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
