Churches

His creed no parson ever knew, for this was still his simple plan, to have with clergymen to do as little as a Christian can.
- Doyle, Sir Francis
Churches Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Churches

1.
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
Weil, Simone

2.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.

3.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
Penn, William

4.
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.

5.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.

6.
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green

7.
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.

8.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
Wilder, Billy

9.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
Chadwick, Henry

10.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
Thomson, James

11.
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

12.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
Fuller, Thomas

13.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
Proverb, Irish

14.
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?

15.
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

16.
My own mind is my own church.
Paine, Thomas

17.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
Carlyle, Thomas

18.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
Havner, Vance

19.
But a priest's life is not supposed to be well-rounded; it is supposed to be one-pointed -- a compass, not a weathercock.
Huxley, Aldous

20.
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
Wesley, John

21.
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.
Swift, Jonathan

22.
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.
Austen, Jane

23.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
Carey, George

24.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.

25.
The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.
Beecher, Henry Ward

26.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.

27.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.

28.
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

29.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
Voltaire

30.
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

31.
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.

32.
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.
Calvin, John

33.
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
Graham, Billy

34.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
Johnson, Samuel

35.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.

36.
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.

37.
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

38.
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

39.
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.
O'Casey, Sean

40.
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

41.
A full-dressed ecclesiastic is a sort of go-cart of divinity; an ethical automaton. A clerical prig is, in general, a very dangerous as well as contemptible character. The utmost that those who thus habitually confound their opinions and sentiments with the outside coverings of their bodies can aspire to, is a negative and neutral character, like wax-work figures, where the dress is done as much to the life as the man, and where both are respectable pieces of pasteboard, or harmless compositions of fleecy hosiery.
Hazlitt, William

42.
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Smith, Sydney

43.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
Amis, Kingsley

44.
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.
Norman, Edward

45.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
Cowper, William

46.
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

47.
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

48.
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

49.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
Proverb, French

50.
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
