Apostasy Quote & Movements   Leave a comment

This is from the blog Words from the Crucible:

“The apostasy of the early Church came as a result of a greater desire to see the spread of its power and rule than to see new natures given to its individual members. The moment we covet a large following and rejoice in the crowd that is attracted by our presentation of what we consider truth, and have not a greater desire to see the natures of individuals changed according to the divine plan, we start to travel a road of apostasy that leads to Rome and her daughters.”

– Author Unknown

The gospel which seeks to shake the world but not the hearts of men is no gospel at all. It loves to attract the world, therefore it will gain the world at the forfeiture of its own soul; for the world is seduced by the words of such a harlot. The true body of Christ is never a movement, for such only serves the pride and vanity of man. Men love a movement because it will do the moving for them. Movements are the monuments which mark the resting place of the dead. Man has movements, God has movings. Movements flatter, movings shatter. A movement is a thing, an external item, to be vainly admired and coveted by men; but a moving is a continually active force of nature, in this case divine, which must be at work within and through men individually.
