“The early church was married to poverty, prisons and persecutions.
Today, the church is married to prosperity, personality, and popularity.”
― Leonard Ravenhill
QUOTES FROM THE PAST…
“Mouths that used to speak out boldly against the Church of Rome have been quieted by the times. Never has something so black and wicked, gotten away with appearing so holy and mysteriously beautiful for so long!” — Keith Green
“… the Roman Catholic Church! These priests who dope mens souls, these idolatrous ‘masses,’ these Calvary eclipsing prayers to Mary, these miserable millions cheated in life and in death by the greatest forgery Lucifer ever made.” — Leonard Ravenhill
“I defy the Pope and all his laws. If God spare my life, ere many years I will cause a boy who drives the plough to know more of the scriptures than you do.” — William Tyndale
“If I profess with the loudest voice and clearest exposition every portion of the truth of God except precisely that point which the world and the devil are at that moment attacking, then I am not confessing Christ, however boldly I may be professing Him. Where the battle rages, there the loyalty of the soldier is proved; and to be steady on all the battlefront besides is merely flight and disgrace if he flinches at that point.” — Martin Luther
“Essence of lies, and quintessence of blasphemy, as the religion of Rome IS… it nevertheless fascinates a certain order of Protestants, of whom we fear it may be truly said that ‘they have received a strong delusion to believe a lie, that they may be damned.’ Seeing that it is so, it becomes all who would preserve their fellow-immortals from destruction to be plain and earnest in their warnings. Not in a party-spirit, but for truth’s sake, our Protestantism must protest perpetually.” — Charles H. Spurgeon
Today, in our day, many if not most prominent “Protestant” leaders are promoting unity with Rome.
Where will it end?
An interesting quote by Matthew Henry. What he said is true. I wonder what he would say if he were alive to observe the political “organized church” of our day.
“Christ’s kingdom is spiritual, and not of this world.
Christianity does not meddle with politics.
