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.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
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.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
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
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
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
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.
Beecher, Henry Ward
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.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
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.
How can a bishop marry? How can he flirt? The most he can say is I will see you in the vestry after service.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
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.
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
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.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.
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 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 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
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.
My own mind is my own church.
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green
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.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
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.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
