Scofield: the church's divergence

Tuesday, February 20, 2018
    Commemoration of Cecile Isherwood, Founder of the Community of the Resurrection, Grahamstown, South Africa, 1906
    Then a teacher of the law came to him and said, “Teacher, I will follow you wherever you go.” Jesus replied, “Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head.”
    —Matthew 8:19-20 (NIV)
    The church has failed to follow her appointed pathway of separation, holiness, heavenliness and testimony to an absent but coming Christ; she has turned aside from that purpose to the work of civilizing the world, building magnificent temples, and acquiring earthly power and wealth, and, in this way, has ceased to follow in the footsteps of Him who had not where to lay His head.
    ... C. I. Scofield (1843-1921), Addresses on Prophecy, New York : Gaebelein, 1910, Gospel Hour, 1967, p. 52 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 8:19-20; 5:48; 23:13-33; Acts 1:8; 2 Cor. 6:14-15; 7:1; Heb. 12:14; 2 Pet. 1:16; Rev. 2:4
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, lead Your church in the way that it should go.
