CQOD: 08/29/05 -- Scofield: lowering the purpose of the church

Christian Quotation of the Day

August 29, 2005
Meditation:
    [Jesus:] Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.
    -- Matthew 10:28 (NIV)

Quotation:
    Instead of pursuing her appointed path of separation, persecution, world-hatred, poverty, and non-resistance, [the Church] has used... Scripture to justify her in lowering her purpose to the civilization of the world, the acquisition of wealth, the use of an imposing ritual, the erection of magnificent churches, the invocation of God’s blessing upon the conflicts of armies, and the division of an equal brotherhood into “clergy” and “laity.”
    ... C. I. Scofield (1843-1921), Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth [1930]

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, lead me to seek Your will for the church and not rely on the world's goals.

Are you shockproof? You are if you can go to Google and enter "Pretrib Rapture Diehards" and not be flabbergasted! Watch the blood drain out of your own face when you learn about LaHaye's hypocrisy in section "1992" and become aware of the unbelievable plagiarism in the writings of LaHaye, Lindsey, Falwell and other dizzy-pensationalists! Good read!
