Best Quotes about Churches
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.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.
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
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.
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
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.
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.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard
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.
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.
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.
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
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
My own mind is my own church.
How can a bishop marry? How can he flirt? The most he can say is I will see you in the vestry after service.
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 church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.
The church is so subnormal that if it ever got back to the New Testament normal it would seem to people to be abnormal.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
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 first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.
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.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
A woman's asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person's demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
