“In our western civilization
we have had propensity for and a preoccupation with
study and the pursuit of knowledge.
The church, today is worldly.
The church, today is westernized.
We’re so secularized
we’ve almost completely eliminated
the supernatural from our perceptions.
We’ve come to a place where we don’t anticipate
God to operate as God among us.
We’ve come to a place where we really think that
the pursuit of study has become an end in itself. …
But to study it without acting upon it is incomplete.
Both Jesus and James told us that
hearing without doing is incomplete. …
We not only need the illumination,
we need the illustration.
We need the Word
and the works.”
– John Wimber
