Quote of the Week

Every week I'll post a quote from something I've read or heard. Some will be deep...some funny. The first one comes from E.M. Bounds:

The present day Church has vast machinery. Its activities are great, and its material prosperity is unparalleled. The name of Christianity is widespread and well-known. Much money comes into the Lord's treasury and is paid out. But here are the questions:

Does the work of holiness keep pace with all this?
Is the burden of the prayers of church people to be made holy?
Are our preachers really holy men and women?

E.M. Bounds was a pastor during the Civil War years.
This quote comes from his book: "The Classic Collection on Prayer."
