Best Quotes about Churches
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.
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
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
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.
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
I'm a priest, not a priestess. Priestess implies mumbo jumbo and all sorts of pagan goings-on. Those who oppose us would love to call us priestesses. They can call us all the names in the world -- it's better than being invisible.
My own mind is my own church.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
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.
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.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.
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
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.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
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.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.
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
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green
The church is so subnormal that if it ever got back to the New Testament normal it would seem to people to be abnormal.
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.
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
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio
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?
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.
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 first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.
The act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
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.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.
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 woman's asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person's demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan.
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.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
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
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
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
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.
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
How can a bishop marry? How can he flirt? The most he can say is I will see you in the vestry after service.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
