Churches

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.
- Ruskin, John
Churches Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Churches

1.
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

2.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
Carey, George

3.
The church is so subnormal that if it ever got back to the New Testament normal it would seem to people to be abnormal.
Havner, Vance

4.
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.

5.
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.

6.
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

7.
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.

8.
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

9.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
Johnson, Samuel

10.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
Joyce, James

11.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.

12.
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.

13.
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

14.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
Cowper, William

15.
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
Wesley, John

16.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard

17.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
Voltaire

18.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio

19.
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

20.
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

21.
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

22.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
Carey, George

23.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
Atkinson, Brooks

24.
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.
Hazlitt, William

25.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De

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

27.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
Thomson, James

28.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
Proverb, French

29.
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

30.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.

31.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
Penn, William

32.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
Thomson, James

33.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.

34.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
Proverb, Irish

35.
She say, Celie, tell the truth, have you ever found God in church? I never did. I just found a bunch of folks hoping for him to show. Any God I ever felt in church I brought in with me. And I think all the other folks did too. They come to church to share God, not find God.
Walker, Alice

36.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
Amis, Kingsley

37.
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

38.
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
Graham, Billy

39.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
Melbourne, Lord

40.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry

41.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.

42.
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.
Ruskin, John

43.
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

44.
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Smith, Sydney

45.
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

46.
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.
Cheever, John

47.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
Wilder, Billy

48.
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?

49.
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

50.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
Luther, Martin
