Brother Greg's recent article [url=https://www.sermonindex.net/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=14082&forum=16]'Busy, Strong, and Without God'[/url] quoted Catherine Booth,
Catherine Booth shares these stirring words of professors but not possessors of religion in her day: [b]The moment anybody attempts really to obey Jesus Christ, they cry, Mad! mad! away with such a fellow; he is not fit to live.[/b] What a veritable laughing-stock to hell such professed Christians make themselves. The devil says, All right; let them alone. Let them go to their sanctuaries, let them have their creeds and ceremonies, let them sing their sweet hymns, and amuse themselves with their religious entertainments and their Bible classes; do not disturb them, whatever you do, they are amongst my best and most successful allies. Oh, may God show us these things, and help us to set to work to awaken every backslidden, lazy professor within reach of us. Those that truly know God will be active in obedience with God, we must persevere and give continued proof that we are indeed born again. God in us and in our midst! there is nothing more exciting and powerful in this world! Oh it has to change things, it must!
