Have we lost the “protest” in Protestantism? Current Western Christianity seems little more than an experience for me and “love” is seen more in terms of being “nice” than fulfilling our duties of faith. Kent Hodge briefly examines the basis for godly living and how as that is played out it fulfills the dutiful requirement of an outward focus on mission.
I read in a letter from 1974 from Corrie Ten Boom, author of “The Hiding Place”, about surviving the Holocaust, that there were over 200,000 people martyred for their faith in Africa that year. Christian persecution has enveloped this world, yet Western Christians are largely oblivious to it.
A prophecy given at Elim Bible Institute, by Stanley Frodsham (1882-1969), an early Pentecostal leader, known as “God’s Prophet with a Pen” who edited and published Assemblies of God publications for years. Highly relevant for today, it repeats New Testament warnings to seek His righteousness and avoid being deceived by false teaching, but to seek, know and hold fast to truth which is confirmed in Scripture & by the Holy Spirit.
