Church History

Famous quotes containing the words church and/or history:

    The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
    Robert Green Ingersoll (1833–1899)

    What is most interesting and valuable in it, however, is not the materials for the history of Pontiac, or Braddock, or the Northwest, which it furnishes; not the annals of the country, but the natural facts, or perennials, which are ever without date. When out of history the truth shall be extracted, it will have shed its dates like withered leaves.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
