“If we REALLY want the Holy Spirit in our midst, we must allow Him to be the leader.”
– Rick Joyner
“He [Martin Luther] swept away relics, pilgrimages, purgatory, indulgences, five of the seven sacraments, and he was willing to bring the sole test of scripture to all of these areas, and was bold enough to deal with them. That kind of courage is desperately needed in the church today, desperately. But I find there are few voices that are willing to tell it as it is. Most pastors admit to me freely they are compromised and know it, but the fear of losing members when your church is already shrinking is a kind of syndrome that is difficult to resist.”
– David Pawson @ 11:35 in “Completing Luther’s Reformation, Part 1 of 4,” transcribed by me

From Robert Lyte on Facebook:
“My 7 Years Working for The Elijah List” — Ear-tickling messages coddling people into deceptive slumber: Positive-encouraging-words-only philosophy; the misinterpretation of Matt. 7:1-5 (not judging); the misuse of the term ‘Grace’ …. The end result of prophecy should be God’s people repenting.
“Churches often go from being a movement of God to being an organization, to being an institution, to becoming a museum.”
