Churches

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



Best Quotes about Churches

1.
The act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
Pound, Ezra

2.
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

3.
Those who marry God can become domesticated too -- it's just as hum-drum a marriage as all the others. The word Love means a formal touch of the lips as in the ceremony of the Mass, and Ave Marialike dearest is a phrase to open a letter. This marriage like the world's marriages was held together by habits and tastes shared in common between God and themselves -- it was God's taste to be worshipped and their taste to worship, but only at stated hours like a suburban embrace on a Saturday night.
Greene, Graham

4.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.

5.
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

6.
The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.
Beecher, Henry Ward

7.
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

8.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
Johnson, Samuel

9.
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

10.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
Luther, Martin

11.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
Thomson, James

12.
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

13.
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.

14.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.

15.
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

16.
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

17.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
Joyce, James

18.
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.

19.
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

20.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio

21.
We sing in a church, why can we not dance there?
Shaw, George Bernard

22.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.

23.
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?

24.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
Carey, George

25.
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

26.
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green

27.
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

28.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.

29.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
Carlyle, Thomas

30.
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

31.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry

32.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
Melbourne, Lord

33.
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
Weil, Simone

34.
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

35.
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
Shedd, Charlie

36.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
Chadwick, Henry

37.
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

38.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
Cowper, William

39.
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.

40.
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Smith, Sydney

41.
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

42.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
Carey, George

43.
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.

44.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
Fuller, Thomas

45.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
Fielding, Henry

46.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.

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

49.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
Voltaire

50.
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
