The moment the Church becomes completely programized and de-personalized, it becomes a monument to God’s memory and not an instrument of His living power. -Dr. John A. Mackey, past president of Princeton Theological Seminary and the Presbyterian Alliance (from “The Spirit Bade Me Go” by David DuPlessis)

For there must not be any denial of the facts: the church has been captured by the kingdoms of the world and the glory of them. In spite of the prophetic voices that are raised here and there among us, present-day believers are drawn to the world with irresistible force. -A. W. Tozer, God Tells the Man Who Cares

The churches do not lack for scholars and great minds. They do lack for men and women who can, and will be, channels of the power of God in our day. -Dr. Sam Shoemaker (from “The Spirit Bade Me Go” by David DuPlessis)

Does any of this apply to the church that you know? Before you start ranting about “this generation,” let me point out that these quotes are all from the 1950′s or thereabouts.

Roam to and fro through the streets of Jerusalem,
And look now, and take note.
And seek in her open squares, If you can find a man,
If there is one who does justice, who seeks truth,
Then I will pardon her.
Jeremiah 5:1
