Best Quotes about Churches
How can a bishop marry? How can he flirt? The most he can say is I will see you in the vestry after service.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
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.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
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 old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green
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.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
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
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
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
I do not believe in the creed professed by the Jewish Church, by the Roman Church, by the Greek Church, by the Turkish Church, by the Protestant Church, nor by any church that I know of. My own mind is my own church.
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.
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 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
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?
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 Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
The church is so subnormal that if it ever got back to the New Testament normal it would seem to people to be abnormal.
My own mind is my own church.
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
The act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
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 Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.
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
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.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
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.
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 itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry
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.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.
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.
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
