Some thought-provoking quotes from Leonard Ravenhill, author of Why Revival Tarries. Thanks to Robin from Random Redhead Ramblings for these.
"If Jesus had preached the same message that ministers preach today, He would never have been crucified."
"Your doctrine can be as straight as a gun barrel—and just as empty!"
"You can have all of your doctrines right—yet still not have the presence of God."
"The Church used to be a lifeboat rescuing the perishing. Now she is a cruise ship recruiting the promising."
"God isn’t looking for organizing. He is looking for agonizing."
"The question isn't were you challenged. The question is were you changed?"
“Why do we expect to be better treated in this world than Jesus was?”
"One of these days some simple soul will pick up the Book of God, read it, and believe it. Then the rest of us will be embarrassed."
