Best Quotes about Churches
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.
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 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.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
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.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.
Beecher, Henry Ward
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
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.
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
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
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
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
But a priest's life is not supposed to be well-rounded; it is supposed to be one-pointed -- a compass, not a weathercock.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
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 itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry
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
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.
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.
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.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De
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.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
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.
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.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
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 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?
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
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
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.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
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
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 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.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
The act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
