Best Quotes about Churches
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
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
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.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
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.
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
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
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.
Beecher, Henry Ward
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.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
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.
A woman's asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person's demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
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.
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
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.
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.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.
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.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.
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.
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
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 believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
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
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.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
The Church cannot be content to live in its stained-glass house and throw stones through the picture window of modern culture.
Brown, Robert Mcafee
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
The Christian church is a society of sinners. It is the only society in the world, membership in which is based upon the single qualification that the candidate shall be unworthy of membership.
Morrison, Charles C.
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
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.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
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 act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
