Soul winning

"Any objection to the carryings on of our present gold-calf Christianity is met with the triumphant reply, 

'But we are winning them!

And winning them to what? To true discipleship? To cross-carrying? To self-denial? To separation from the world? To crucifixion of the flesh? To holy living? To nobility of character? To a despising of the world´s treasures? To hard self-discipline? To love for God? To total committal to Christ? 

Of course the answer to all these questions is no." -A.W.Tozer

  1. Precisely. I can't tell you how sad I am. We have lost a culture of reverence. People hardly recognize sactification. And where are the descipleship programs? Why aren't we in close enough relationship with others to help mold character with our own Godly pursuits? It is a real frustration for me. I have been out of the church building for years because of my disillusionment. Only now am I linking hands with believers who are seeking to really GROW into the fullness of the revelation of the Christ!
