A Quote by Thomas Paine on belief, church, judaism, mind, and protestantism

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.

A Quote by Albert Theodore Tuttle on church, college, efficiency, effort, life, meaning, power, spirit, strength, study, teachers, and weakness

If you would be a better teacher, teach by the spirit. That is the thing that gives strength and power, meaning and life, to our otherwise weak efforts... remember, you cannot give away that which you do not possess. Study the life of the master. You do not have to have a college degree to be an efficient teacher. But you do have to become acquainted with the life and teachings of the master to be an effective teacher in the church.

A Quote by Theodore C. Speers, D.D. on belief, church, existence, life, persuasion, religion, and trying

We have got to begin a vast reclamation project to revitalize religion for those to whom it means little or nothing. This can be done not by trying to persuade those outside the church to believe what we believe but by pointing out to them the presence of the unrecognized religion that already exists in their lives.

A Quote by Susan Brownell Anthony on children, church, idealism, money, people, and schools

If all the rich and all of the church people should send their children to the public schools they would feel bound to concentrate their money on improving these schools until they met the highest ideals.

A Quote by Stephen Vizinczey on church, earth, and universe

Is it possible that I am not alone in believing that in the dispute between Galileo and the Church, the Church was right and the centre of man's universe is the earth?

A Quote by Stephen Neill on christ, church, concern, danger, jesus, leadership, men, men and women, planning, and women

Is the leadership of the worldwide church in the hands of men and women who know how to lead others one by one to Jesus Christ? We are so concerned with planning and administration that there is a danger lest we allow these things to serve as an excuse for not doing the one thing on which all else depends.
