Once again it's time for my annual break from the blog. August is just about here and as usual, I take a rest from here to concentrate on other things. I'll be back at the beginning of September. I leave you with some quotes from the spiritual giant, Ern Baxter:
So many people in our generation feel free to adjust God's words to accommodate our time, I guess they think God is so limited that He could not have anticipated the ongoing events of history.
The Book of Acts is the only divinely inspired revelation of the nature of post-Pentecostal evangelism, church planting and church structuring that we have.
You can't just function by principle. You have to function by the immediate, existential direction of God within principle.
The reason we are getting superficial conversions that do not last is because we are preaching a superficial message that is not taking hold.
I don't answer 'what if' questions. God didn't call me to preach the irreducible minimum. God didn't call me to tell you 'how little you have to have' to make it through.
The Bible does not ease people into the Kingdom. It blasts them in.
The Bible doesn't say to get saved to go to heaven. The Bible tells us to get saved to go on to maturity.
The Gospel is a sabre of light to life for some, and a light to death for others. The same Gospel that saves a man also damns a man.
Every sinner has a right to his miracle, but when Christians become obsessed with wonders and miracles, they are in an improper place. What is the meaning of miracles, wonders and signs? A miracle is given to create wonder in the human heart. When you see a miracle, you say, 'Wow!' Is that all it is good for? No. That miracle is given as a sign. If you are intelligent you will ask, 'Who did that?'
