Churches Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Churches

1.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
Thomson, James

2.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.

3.
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

4.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
Amis, Kingsley

5.
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

6.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.

7.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.

8.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard

9.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio

10.
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

11.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
Joyce, James

12.
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.

13.
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.
Hazlitt, William

14.
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

15.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
Carey, George

16.
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

17.
The act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
Pound, Ezra

18.
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

19.
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.

20.
But a priest's life is not supposed to be well-rounded; it is supposed to be one-pointed -- a compass, not a weathercock.
Huxley, Aldous

21.
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

22.
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.
Paine, Thomas

23.
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.

24.
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.
Norman, Edward

25.
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?

26.
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.

27.
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.

28.
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

29.
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.
Calvin, John

30.
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Smith, Sydney

31.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
Wilder, Billy

32.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
Defoe, Daniel

33.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
Johnson, Samuel

34.
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.

35.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
Carey, George

36.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
Carlyle, Thomas

37.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
Thomson, James

38.
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

39.
My own mind is my own church.
Paine, Thomas

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

41.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De

42.
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

43.
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

44.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.

45.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
Proverb, Irish

46.
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

47.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
Fuller, Thomas

48.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry

49.
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

50.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
Luther, Martin
