Amanda Smith and the Christians with her at the old fashioned Holy Ghost camp meeting knew about the soul harming errors of Rome and were not afraid to speak about them. Today hardly any are willing to speak up and speak out about such things.  Here is a short excerpt from the book …

” … The power of the Spirit was manifest.  Brother Adams sat down in a tempest of glory.  It was the very Sunday that Rome was declaring the infallibility of the Pope.  Brother Boole sprang to his feet, as by inspiration and said, as he only could say it:

‘In Rome today they are crowning the Pope infallible;  let’s rise and sing  ‘All hail the power of Jesus’ name, and ‘Crown Him Lord of All,’  in our hearts forever.’

And the whole congregation rose in an instant as one.  I think I never heard such singing – never heard that old Coronation sung as it was that day. Yes, we crowned Him King of kings and Lord of lords.  Hallelujah! for the Lord God Omnipotent reigneth!”

  1. Thanks for the incident from Amanda Smith’s book. The hymn “come, Thou Almighty King” may make a similar point. Though we do not know for certain who wrote it, it was possibly Charles Wesley. The hymn has some phrases that parallel the English national anthem “God Save the King” (or Queen)–a song that became popular in England around the same time.

    In the hymn we have, “Father, all-glorious, / O’er all victorious, / Come and reign over us…”

    And the national anthem has, “Send him victorious, / Happy and glorious, / Long to reign over us…”

    Interestingly, the hymn was originally sung to the same tune as “God Save the King” (a tune that Americans use for “My Country ‘Tis of Thee”) making the parallel even more evident. It is as though the hymn writer wanted to remind the Christians of his day that above and beyond any human monarch is a sovereign God to whom we are accountable first.
