"Today's church wants to be raptured from responsibility."
-Leonard Ravenhill.

"A popular evangelist reaches your emotions. A true prophet
reaches your conscience."
-Leonard Ravenhill.

"The last words of Jesus to the church (in Revelation) were 'Repent!'"
-Leonard Ravenhill.

"If Christianity is to receive a rejuvenation, it must be by other means
than any now being used. If the Church in the second half of this
century is to recover from the injuries she suffered in the first half,
there must appear a new type of leader. The proper, ruler-of-the-
synagogue type will never do. Neither will the priestly type of man
who carries out his duties, takes his pay and asks no questions,
nor the smooth-talking pastoral type who knows how to make the
Christian religion acceptable to everyone. All these have been
tried and found wanting.
Another kind of religious leader must arise among us. He must
be of the old prophet type, a man who has seen visions of God
and has heard a voice from the Throne. When he comes (and I
pray God there will be not one but many), he will stand in flat
contradiction to everything our smirking, smooth civilization holds dear."
~A.W. Tozer

"Some one, then, must undertake the ungracious task of probing
and laying bare the evils of the age; for men must not be allowed
to congratulate themselves that all is well. If others will not, he will.
If others shrink from the obloquy of such a work, he will not. He
loves the age too well; he loves his nation too well; he loves his
fellow-men too well. They may upbraid him; they may call him a
misanthropist, or a prophet of evil; they may ascribe his warnings
to the worst of motives, such as pride, or arrogance, or self-esteem,
or malice, or envy; but he will give no heed to these unjust
He will prefer being thus misunderstood and maligned, to allowing
men to precipitate themselves upon a ruin which they see not.
Rather than that they should perish, he will allow his own good
name to be spoken against. He will risk every thing, even the
hatred of brethren, rather than withhold the warning."
-Horatius Bonar
