CQOD: 08/15/06 -- Littell: success and surrender

Christian Quotation of the Day

August 15, 2006
    Therefore whoever relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
    -- Matthew 5:19 (ESV)

    The period which marked the enormous statistical success of the revival churches was also the period which saw membership standards decline almost to the vanishing point. Today the [various denominations] don’t even have enough authority to keep their members out of mob violence, let alone hold them to difficult standards of theological or ethical or moral excellence.
    ... Franklin H. Littell (b.1917)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I hold Your words in awe and respect.
