The Prophet is Needed

If Christianity is to receive a rejuvenation it must be by other means than any now being used. If the church in the second half of [the twentieth] century is to recover from the injuries she suffered in the first half, there must appear a new type of preacher. The proper, ruler-of-the-synagogue type will never do. Neither will the priestly type of man who carries out his duties, takes his pay and asks no questions, nor the smooth-talking pastoral type who knows how to make the Christian religion acceptable to everyone. All these have been tried and found wanting. Another kind of religious leader must arise among us. He must be of the old prophet type, a man who has seen visions of God and has heard a voice from the Throne. When he comes (and I pray God there will not be one but many) he will stand in flat contradiction to everything our smirking, smooth civilization holds dear. He will contradict, denounce and protest in the name of God and will earn the hatred and opposition of a large segment of Christendom.[1]

  1. Absolutely! Great quote from Tozer. How true it is!

    • I saw this quote from Tozer in a book that I’m reading called, “Pagan Christianity”. It is amazing how far the church has fallen away from its first century beginnings. There is a saying from an unknown author that says, “the church began in Jerusalem as a fellowship, moved to Greece and became a philosophy, moved to rome and became an institution and finally came to America where it became an enterprize.
