Churches

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
Churches Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Churches

1.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
Carey, George

2.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
Carlyle, Thomas

3.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
Proverb, French

4.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
Havner, Vance

5.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
Voltaire

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

7.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.

8.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
Melbourne, Lord

9.
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.

10.
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

11.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio

12.
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
Shedd, Charlie

13.
The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.
Beecher, Henry Ward

14.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
Fuller, Thomas

15.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.

16.
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
Wesley, John

17.
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

18.
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

19.
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.

20.
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

21.
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

22.
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

23.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
Proverb, Irish

24.
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

25.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
Johnson, Samuel

26.
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

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

29.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
Penn, William

30.
The act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
Pound, Ezra

31.
One hundred religious persons knit into a unity by careful organizations do not constitute a church any more than eleven dead men make a football team. The first requisite is life, always.
Tozer, A. W.

32.
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

33.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
Thomson, James

34.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
Carey, George

35.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
Wilder, Billy

36.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
Atkinson, Brooks

37.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
Thomson, James

38.
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.

39.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry

40.
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

41.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
Defoe, Daniel

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.
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

44.
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

45.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard

46.
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

47.
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

48.
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.

49.
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

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