Best Quotes about Churches
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
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.
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.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard
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
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.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
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.
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.
I never weary of great churches. It is my favorite kind of mountain scenery. Mankind was never so happily inspired as when it made a cathedral.
Stevenson, Robert Louis
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.
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.
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
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
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
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
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
The priesthood in many ways is the ultimate closet in Western civilization, where gay people particularly have hidden for the past two thousand years.
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 church is so subnormal that if it ever got back to the New Testament normal it would seem to people to be abnormal.
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
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.
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.
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 Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
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
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
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.
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De
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.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
But a priest's life is not supposed to be well-rounded; it is supposed to be one-pointed -- a compass, not a weathercock.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
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.
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.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
