Paul N. F. (3 March 2011)


By A. W. Tozer

Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour
put away from you.                                      --Ephesians 4:31

   As Christian believers,  we  must  stand together against
some  things.  So,  if  you hear  anyone saying that  A. W.
Tozer preaches a good deal that is negative, just smile and
agree:  "That is because he preaches the Bible!"

   Here are some of the things we oppose: we are against
the many  modern  idols that have been allowed to creep
into the churches;  we are against the "unauthorized fire”
that is being offered  on the  altars  of  the  Lord;  we are
against  the modern  gods  that  are being adopted in our

   We are against the world's ways and its false values.
We are against the world's follies and its vain pleasures.
We are against this world's greed and sinful ambitions.
We are against this world's vices and its carnal habits.

   We  believe  this  spells  out  clearly  the  Bible truth of
separation.  God  asks us to stand boldly against anything
or anyone who hurts or hinders this New Testament body
of  Christians.  Where the church is not healed ---  it  will
wither.  The  Word of God is the antibiotic that alone can
destroy the virus that would plague the life of the church!
Yours in Christ,
Paul N. F.
