Best Quotes about Churches
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.
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.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.
My own mind is my own church.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
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.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.
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 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.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
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
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
A woman's asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person's demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan.
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
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.
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
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.
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green
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.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
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
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
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
How can a bishop marry? How can he flirt? The most he can say is I will see you in the vestry after service.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry
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 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.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
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.
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.
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
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.
The act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
But a priest's life is not supposed to be well-rounded; it is supposed to be one-pointed -- a compass, not a weathercock.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
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.
