This Week's Quote
“I am afraid that in our zeal to get people into the kingdom or the Church we have lowered the standard. In order to capture, we have compromised and lost. We have been more concerned about filling our Church registers than we have about the kingdom. We have not sufficiently emphasized the greatness of coming to Christ, and we have said, ‘It is only a step.’ Who told you so? Only a step to Jesus? Then it is a very big step. We have made it a very little thing, and we have multitudes of people joining the Churches. It is child’s play. It used not to be. Christ never made it easy; and the man who makes it easy to be a Christian preaches a mongrel gospel. Jesus said, ‘Repent.’ There is no salvation without repentance.”
(Gipsy Smith, “Repent Ye,” 1906)
