 Centuries-old Adamic Trash -Tozer

Centuries-old Adamic Trash

Now let us keep our theology straight about all this. There is not in this painful stripping one remote thought of human merit. The "dark night of the soul" knows not one dim ray of the treacherous light of self-righteousness. We do not by suffering earn the anointing for which we yearn, nor does this devastation of soul make us dear to God nor give us additional favor in His eyes. The value of the stripping experience lies in its power to detach us from life's passing interests and to throw us back upon eternity. It serves to empty our earthly vessels and prepare us for the inpouring of the Holy Spirit.
The filling with the Spirit, then, requires that we give up our all, that we undergo an inward death, that we rid our hearts of that centuries-old accumulation of Adamic trash and open all rooms to the heavenly Guest.

Prayer
Strip away the centuries-old Adamic trash that clogs our minds and hearts, Father, and replace it with the light of Your Spirit.

Scripture
Even the darkness will not be dark to you; / the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you.
—Psalm 139:12

Thought
The filling with the Spirit, then, requires that we give up our all, that we undergo an inward death, that we rid our hearts of that centuries-old accumulation of Adamic trash and open all rooms to the heavenly Guest.

 Re: Centuries-old Adamic Trash -Tozer

This is a interesting post. It helps give insight into some questions that arise about the Mystics.

I wonder if anyone would have Tozer writing on the Sin Nature post regeneration? :-)

Thanks for sharing Greg!
