“The fact is, the Church has lost her prophetic voice, and the world is not coming into direct confrontation with the Truth. As a result, the world remains placid toward us, allowing the Church to continue its harmless religious games.”
“Our years of tradition, internal promotion, well-planned evangelistic fervor, and continual “new idea” and “innovative approach” add up to religious machinery. It misses by a wide mark the spontaneous freedom and simplicity of the life of the early church.”
-from p.40 of “A Prophet’s Heart” by Charles Brown.
