Best Quotes about Churches
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
A woman's asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person's demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
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
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
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
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.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
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.
The act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
The church is so subnormal that if it ever got back to the New Testament normal it would seem to people to be abnormal.
My own mind is my own church.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.
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.
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.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.
How can a bishop marry? How can he flirt? The most he can say is I will see you in the vestry after service.
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
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
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.
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?
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
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 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
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
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
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.
The priesthood in many ways is the ultimate closet in Western civilization, where gay people particularly have hidden for the past two thousand years.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
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.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
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.
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 old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
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.
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.
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 first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.
