Timely Words from the Past

More than fifty years ago I heard A. W. Tozer preach in Chicago. He belonged to a breed of preachers who feared nothing but offending God. He and his ilk proclaimed the Word with integrity and faithfulness. They saw themselves as God’s servants, not His publicists.

Tozer warned believers about a new cross that would soon replace the old rugged cross. He wrote:

“The new cross encourages a new and entirely different evangelistic approach. The evangelist does not demand abnegation of the old life before a new life can be received. He preaches not contrasts but similarities. He seeks to key into public interest by showing that Christianity makes no unpleasant demands; rather, it offers the same thing the world does, only on a higher level. Whatever the sin-mad world happens to be clamoring after at the moment is cleverly shown to be the very thing the gospel offers, only the religious product is better.”

Timely words from the past!
