Churches

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

Best Quotes about Churches

1.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.

2.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De

3.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
Voltaire

4.
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

5.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
Carey, George

6.
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.

7.
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.

8.
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

9.
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.
Cheever, John

10.
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.

11.
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

12.
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

13.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
Carey, George

14.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.

15.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio

16.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
Johnson, Samuel

17.
The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.
Beecher, Henry Ward

18.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
Fuller, Thomas

19.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
Melbourne, Lord

20.
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

21.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
Penn, William

22.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.

23.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
Proverb, Irish

24.
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

25.
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
Graham, Billy

26.
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.
Havner, Vance

27.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard

28.
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

29.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
Cowper, William

30.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
Wilder, Billy

31.
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

32.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.

33.
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

34.
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.

35.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
Luther, Martin

36.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.

37.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
Proverb, French

38.
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.

39.
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.
Greene, Graham

40.
The church is so subnormal that if it ever got back to the New Testament normal it would seem to people to be abnormal.
Havner, Vance

41.
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

42.
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
Shedd, Charlie

43.
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.

44.
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.

45.
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

46.
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green

47.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
Carlyle, Thomas

48.
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.
O'Casey, Sean

49.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
Thomson, James

50.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
Atkinson, Brooks
