Churches

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
Churches Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Churches

1.
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

2.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
Havner, Vance

3.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
Thomson, James

4.
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
Graham, Billy

5.
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

6.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
Atkinson, Brooks

7.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.

8.
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

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

10.
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.

11.
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

12.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard

13.
The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.
Beecher, Henry Ward

14.
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.

15.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
Proverb, French

16.
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

17.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
Johnson, Samuel

18.
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?

19.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
Chadwick, Henry

20.
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

21.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.

22.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.

23.
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.
Selden, John

24.
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.
Havner, Vance

25.
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

26.
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

27.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
Proverb, Irish

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.
The priesthood in many ways is the ultimate closet in Western civilization, where gay people particularly have hidden for the past two thousand years.
Spong, John

30.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
Melbourne, Lord

31.
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

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

33.
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

34.
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
Weil, Simone

35.
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green

36.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.

37.
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

38.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.

39.
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Smith, Sydney

40.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
Ruskin, John

41.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
Defoe, Daniel

42.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
Thomson, James

43.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De

44.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
Amis, Kingsley

45.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry

46.
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

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

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.
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

50.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
Cowper, William
