“Twentieth-century Christianity has put God on charity” by A.W. Tozer

“The picture of a nervous, ingratiating God fawning over men to win their favor is not a pleasant one; yet if we look at the popular conception of God that is precisely what we see. Twentieth-century Christianity has put God on charity.”

–A.W. Tozer, The Knowledge of the Holy (New York: HarperCollins, 1961),  p. 34.

  1. The invisible God has been stretched out of sight by some ministers, and people who want a dab of God to color their canvas of flesh. It’s because we have lost the authority of Scripture in our daily lives. His principles and promises still work well in one’s life, now.

    I read that worldwide 11 million children a year die from hunger or lack of medicine. Church pastors don’t like to talk too much about the poor and sick because it might divert funds from the new south wing of the church. I have members of my church who own 10,000 square foot homes and 6 cars, and never give a second thought about the poor. Like Jesus said to the rich man. Well, you all read the Bible you can look it up.
