Best Quotes about Churches
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
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.
A woman's asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person's demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio
The act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
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
The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.
Beecher, Henry Ward
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.
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
My own mind is my own church.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
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.
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.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
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.
The church is so subnormal that if it ever got back to the New Testament normal it would seem to people to be abnormal.
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.
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
How can a bishop marry? How can he flirt? The most he can say is I will see you in the vestry after service.
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
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 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.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
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
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.
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
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.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.
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.
But a priest's life is not supposed to be well-rounded; it is supposed to be one-pointed -- a compass, not a weathercock.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
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.
