Best Quotes about Churches
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.
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.
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 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
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
A woman's asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person's demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan.
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
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.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
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 Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.
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.
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
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.
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.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry
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
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
My own mind is my own church.
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.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
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
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 first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
The act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.
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.
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.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio
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.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.
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.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
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.
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.
