Churches quotes

Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.

- Fuller, Thomas

What is this strange thing, without which even the true knowledge of doctrine is of no use? without which either a man or a nation is poor, and blind, and wretched, and naked in soul, notwithstanding all his religion? Isaiah will tell, "Wash you, make you clean, saith the Lord. Do justice to the fatherless, relieve the widow." Church-building and church-going are well, but they are not repentance. Churches are not souls. I ask for your hearts, and you give me fine stones and fine words. I want souls, I want your souls.

- National Sermons. 1851.

How can a bishop marry? How can he flirt? The most he can say is I will see you in the vestry after service.

- Smith, Sydney

The more I know about business, the more IĈm convinced that it is conducted in homes and churches far more than in office buildings.

- Laura Moncur

I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.

- Smith, Sydney

Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.

- Ruskin, John

The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.

- Wotton, Sir Henry

He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.

- Amis, Kingsley

A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.

- Chadwick, Henry

My own mind is my own church.

- Paine, Thomas

I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.

- Thomson, James

SACRAMENT, n. A solemn religious ceremony to which several degrees of authority and significance are attached. Rome has seven sacraments, but the Protestant churches, being less prosperous, feel that they can afford only two, and these of inferior sanctity. Some of the smaller sects have no sacraments at all -- for which mean economy they will indubitable be damned.

- Ambrose Bierce

There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.

- Fielding, Henry

He who is near the Church is often far from God.

- Proverb, French

TRINITY, n. In the multiplex theism of certain Christian churches, three entirely distinct deities consistent with only one. Subordinate deities of the polytheistic faith, such as devils and angels, are not dowered with the power of combination, and must urge individually their clames to adoration and propitiation. The Trinity is one of the most sublime mysteries of our holy religion. In rejecting it because it is incomprehensible, Unitarians betray their inadequate sense of theological fundamentals. In religion we believe only what we do not understand, except in the instance of an intelligible doctrine that contradicts an incomprehensible one. In that case we believe the former as a part of the latter.

- Ambrose Bierce

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?


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.

- Havner, Vance

The difference between listening to a radio sermon and going to almost like the difference between calling your girl on the phone and spending an evening with her.

- Moody, Dwight L.

I'll give you a simple formula for straightening out the problems of the United States. First, you tax the churches. You take the tax off of capital gains and the tax off of savings. You decriminalize all drugs and tax them same way as you do alcohol. You decriminalize prostitution. You make gambling legal. That will put the budget back on the road to recovery, and you'll have plenty of tax revenue coming in for all of your social programs, and to run the army.

- Frank Zappa

Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.
