 Striving for Numbers -Tozer

STRIVING FOR NUMBERS

In Christian circles today, the church that can show an impressive quantitative growth is frankly envied and imitated by other ambitious churches. Numbers, size and amounts seem to be very nearly all that matter-with a corresponding lack of emphasis on quality! This is the age of the Laodiceans. The great goddess, Numbers, is worshiped with fervent devotion and all things religious are brought before her for examination. Her Old Testament is the financial report and her New Testament is the membership roll. To these she appeals as the test of spiritual growth and the proof of success or failure in most Christian endeavors. A little acquaintance with the Bible should show this up for the heresy it is. To judge anything spiritual by statistics is to judge by another than scriptural judgment. Yet this is being done every day by ministers, church boards and denominational leaders. And hardly anyone seems to notice the deep and dangerous error!

Prayer
Lord, as I strive to help build your kingdom, let me remember to measure my work by the same standards you do.

Scripture
Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest think on these things.
— Philippians 4:8

To think that AW Tozer has been gone some 40 years now and this message is still 'up-to-date'.
