Best Quotes about Churches

1.
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.

2.
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.
Norman, Edward

3.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
Cowper, William

4.
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
Shedd, Charlie

5.
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
Graham, Billy

6.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
Chadwick, Henry

7.
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

8.
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.

9.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
Carlyle, Thomas

10.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio

11.
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.

12.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.

13.
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

14.
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

15.
The act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
Pound, Ezra

16.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
Carey, George

17.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De

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

20.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
Proverb, Irish

21.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
Thomson, James

22.
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

23.
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

24.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
Luther, Martin

25.
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.

26.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
Fuller, Thomas

27.
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

28.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.

29.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
Proverb, French

30.
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

31.
It is one of the ironies of the ministry that the very man who works in God's name is often hardest put to find time for God. The parents of Jesus lost Him at church, and they were not the last ones to lose Him there.
Havner, Vance

32.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
Joyce, James

33.
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.
Heyward, Carter

34.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
Penn, William

35.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
Atkinson, Brooks

36.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry

37.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
Amis, Kingsley

38.
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

39.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
Thomson, James

40.
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.

41.
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

42.
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

43.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
Voltaire

44.
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

45.
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

46.
The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.
Beecher, Henry Ward

47.
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.
O'Casey, Sean

48.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.

49.
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.

50.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard
