Best Quotes about Churches
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.
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.
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.
But a priest's life is not supposed to be well-rounded; it is supposed to be one-pointed -- a compass, not a weathercock.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio
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
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
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 church is so subnormal that if it ever got back to the New Testament normal it would seem to people to be abnormal.
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.
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.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
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.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.
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.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
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 Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
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.
A woman's asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person's demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan.
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
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
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
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?
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
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.
Here, the churches seemed to shrink away into eroding corners. They seem to have ceased to be essential parts of American life. They no longer give life. It is the huge buildings of commerce and trade which now align the people to attention. These in their massive manner of steel and stone say, Come unto me all ye who labor, and we will give you work.
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 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.
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.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.
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.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.
My own mind is my own church.
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.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
How can a bishop marry? How can he flirt? The most he can say is I will see you in the vestry after service.
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 old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
