Best Quotes about Churches
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave--with both ends kicked out.
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.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
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
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
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.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
A woman's asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person's demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
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.
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.
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.
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.
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.
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
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
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.
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.
The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.
Beecher, Henry Ward
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
The act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
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
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.
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.
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.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
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.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
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
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.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
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.
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
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
How can a bishop marry? How can he flirt? The most he can say is I will see you in the vestry after service.
