Best Quotes about Churches
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.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
But a priest's life is not supposed to be well-rounded; it is supposed to be one-pointed -- a compass, not a weathercock.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.
A woman's asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person's demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio
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.
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
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard
The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.
Beecher, Henry Ward
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
The church is so subnormal that if it ever got back to the New Testament normal it would seem to people to be abnormal.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
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?
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
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.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.
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.
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.
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.
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
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
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.
The priesthood in many ways is the ultimate closet in Western civilization, where gay people particularly have hidden for the past two thousand years.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
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
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
How can a bishop marry? How can he flirt? The most he can say is I will see you in the vestry after service.
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.
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
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry
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 come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
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.
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
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
