Best Quotes about Churches
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 act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
The church exists to train its member through the practice of the presence of God to be servants of others, to the end that Christlikeness may become common property.
Brown, William Adams
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
A woman's asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person's demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan.
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
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio
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 have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
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.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
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.
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 which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry
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.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
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.
The church is so subnormal that if it ever got back to the New Testament normal it would seem to people to be abnormal.
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.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.
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.
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.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
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.
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 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.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard
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.
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.
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.
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
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
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.
