I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.

Churches Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Churches

1.
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.
Greene, Graham

2.
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.

3.
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.
Selden, John

4.
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.
Pound, Ezra

5.
The act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
Pound, Ezra

6.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
Carey, George

7.
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

8.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
Defoe, Daniel

9.
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

10.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.

11.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
Proverb, French

12.
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
Weil, Simone

13.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry

14.
A woman's asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person's demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan.
Daly, Mary

15.
The church is so subnormal that if it ever got back to the New Testament normal it would seem to people to be abnormal.
Havner, Vance

16.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.

17.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
Melbourne, Lord

18.
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.

19.
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.

20.
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.
Walker, Alice

21.
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.
O'Casey, Sean

22.
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
Graham, Billy

23.
The priesthood in many ways is the ultimate closet in Western civilization, where gay people particularly have hidden for the past two thousand years.
Spong, John

24.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
Johnson, Samuel

25.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
Joyce, James

26.
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.

27.
My own mind is my own church.
Paine, Thomas

28.
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

29.
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

30.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
Fielding, Henry

31.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.

32.
I'm a priest, not a priestess. Priestess implies mumbo jumbo and all sorts of pagan goings-on. Those who oppose us would love to call us priestesses. They can call us all the names in the world -- it's better than being invisible.
Heyward, Carter

33.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
Carey, George

34.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
Proverb, Irish

35.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
Voltaire

36.
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.
Murdoch, Iris

37.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
Ruskin, John

38.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.

39.
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.
Cheever, John

40.
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.
Ruskin, John

41.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.

42.
The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.
Beecher, Henry Ward

43.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
Thomson, James

44.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
Fuller, Thomas

45.
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.
Havner, Vance

46.
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

47.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
Atkinson, Brooks

48.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
Penn, William

49.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
Havner, Vance

50.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.
