Churches

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
Churches Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Churches

1.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.

2.
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?

3.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.

4.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
Defoe, Daniel

5.
Here, the churches seemed to shrink away into eroding corners. They seem to have ceased to be essential parts of American life. They no longer give life. It is the huge buildings of commerce and trade which now align the people to attention. These in their massive manner of steel and stone say, Come unto me all ye who labor, and we will give you work.
O'Casey, Sean

6.
My own mind is my own church.
Paine, Thomas

7.
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

8.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio

9.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
Amis, Kingsley

10.
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

11.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
Carey, George

12.
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.

13.
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
Shedd, Charlie

14.
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Smith, Sydney

15.
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

16.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
Thomson, James

17.
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

18.
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green

19.
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
Wesley, John

20.
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

21.
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

22.
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.

23.
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

24.
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

25.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
Melbourne, Lord

26.
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.

27.
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.

28.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard

29.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
Chadwick, Henry

30.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
Fielding, Henry

31.
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

32.
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.

33.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
Atkinson, Brooks

34.
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

35.
The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.
Beecher, Henry Ward

36.
The Church cannot be content to live in its stained-glass house and throw stones through the picture window of modern culture.
Brown, Robert Mcafee

37.
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
Weil, Simone

38.
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

39.
I never saw, heard, nor read, that the clergy were beloved in any nation where Christianity was the religion of the country. Nothing can render them popular, but some degree of persecution.
Swift, Jonathan

40.
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

41.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
Joyce, James

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 parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
Cowper, William

44.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
Havner, Vance

45.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
Luther, Martin

46.
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.
Austen, Jane

47.
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

48.
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

49.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
Proverb, French

50.
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.
Calvin, John
