Hmmm.

The following quote was authored by Billy Graham in the year 1965...

"Multitudes of Christians within the church are moving toward the point where they may reject the institution that we call the church. They are beginning to turn to more simplified forms of worship. They are hungry for a personal and vital experience with Jesus Christ. They want a heartwarming personal faith. Unless the church quickly recovers its authoritative Biblical message, we may witness the spectacle of millions of Christians going outside the institutional church to find spiritual food."
-Billy Graham, quoted in “World Aflame”, pp. 79-80.

What are your thoughts?

  1. This could not be more on target! I know this is a strong statement, but something is wrong! I am trying to figure it out...maybe it's the hearts of the people? maybe its the sameness from week to week. Maybe it's my own heart. I dont want the b.s. any more. Just God. Give me God. Please.

  3. I couldn't agree more. I am a follower of Christ and if the church can't give me that then I will find it elsewhere.
