Any Takers?     -     June 18th, 2017

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 [now the first-half of the 21st] is to recover from the injuries in the first half (and the last 2000 years), 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 the old prophet-type, a man how 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.
