Best Quotes about Churches
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.
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.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
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.
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
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio
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.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.
How can a bishop marry? How can he flirt? The most he can say is I will see you in the vestry after service.
But a priest's life is not supposed to be well-rounded; it is supposed to be one-pointed -- a compass, not a weathercock.
The act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De
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?
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
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
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.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
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.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
A woman's asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person's demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
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 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.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
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.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
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.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
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 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
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.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
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
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
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 greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard
