Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
- Luther, Martin
Churches Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Churches

1.
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.

2.
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

3.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
Joyce, James

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.
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

6.
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green

7.
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

8.
My own mind is my own church.
Paine, Thomas

9.
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.

10.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry

11.
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.

12.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.

13.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
Fielding, Henry

14.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
Amis, Kingsley

15.
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
Weil, Simone

16.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
Carey, George

17.
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?

18.
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

19.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
Cowper, William

20.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.

21.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De

22.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
Atkinson, Brooks

23.
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
Wesley, John

24.
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

25.
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Smith, Sydney

26.
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.
O'Casey, Sean

27.
The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.
Beecher, Henry Ward

28.
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.

29.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
Proverb, French

30.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
Thomson, James

31.
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.
Heyward, Carter

32.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
Luther, Martin

33.
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
Graham, Billy

34.
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.
Murdoch, Iris

35.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
Carlyle, Thomas

36.
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

37.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
Chadwick, Henry

38.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
Thomson, James

39.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
Voltaire

40.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
Penn, William

41.
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

42.
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.

43.
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

44.
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

45.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
Carey, George

46.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard

47.
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.
Walker, Alice

48.
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

49.
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

50.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.
