"More corrupt than the dark days before Luther; more impotently 
intellectual than during the heyday of Calvinism; more financially 
perverted than the days that caused John the Baptist to explode; 
more intoxicated with the drive for spiritual power than any age, 
yet exercising that outward power with less internal transformation 
than anyone since King Saul; enamored with the gifts, yet hardly 
knowing the Giver, our age has produced the most commercial,
materialistic, fad-oriented people ever to claim His name." 
-Gene Edwards.

"For I am verily persuaded the generality of preachers talk of an 
unknown and unfelt Christ; and the reason why congregations 
have been so dead is, because they have had dead men 
preaching to them." 
-Gilbert Tennent 
"If Christians were not such cowards, and absolutely disobedient 
to this plain command of God... one thing would certainly come 
of it -- either they would be murdered in the streets as martyrs, 
because men could not bear the intolerable presence of truth, or 
they would be speedily converted to God." 
-Charles Finney 

"It is my studied judgement that some future generation will 
deem this to be the darkest century, in spiritual depth and 
spiritual experience, in church history - that is, unless something 
very radical happens along... soon." 
-Gene Edwards
