Best Quotes about Churches
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.
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.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
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.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.
Allen, Fred A.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
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
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.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
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.
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.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
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.
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
My own mind is my own church.
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.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Gaulle, Charles De
The church is so subnormal that if it ever got back to the New Testament normal it would seem to people to be abnormal.
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.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
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
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
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.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.
But a priest's life is not supposed to be well-rounded; it is supposed to be one-pointed -- a compass, not a weathercock.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
The priesthood in many ways is the ultimate closet in Western civilization, where gay people particularly have hidden for the past two thousand years.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.
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.
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
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.
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.
It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
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
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.
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.
How can a bishop marry? How can he flirt? The most he can say is I will see you in the vestry after service.
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.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
