The times when churches preached about true holiness? Most churches you see and hear about these days are either preaching a very watered down message of holiness, sanctification..etc or they are preaching about getting rich basically overnight, without the help of God. Where are the times of great preachers like Smith Wigglesworth, Katherine Kuhlman, Charles Finney? This gospel needs to be spoken to the fullest, and its not some fairy tale or something you read any other day, it is a reality and a lifestyle. It has gotten so bad that alot of modern day preachers have to be careful to not offend the people and has to bring them a user friendly message where they womt have to do much... it is a tragedy what is happening.
On a sidenote, there was a chinese christian preacher (forgot his name) who spent 26 years in prison for preaching the gospel. When he was released, he had an interview. The reporter asked him how he spent the last 26 years in prison, he said it was the best 26 years of his life because it was a honeymoon with him and Jesus, no distractions, no one but Him and God. Well he went on tour in the US because I think he wrote a book, the same reporter gave him another interview and asked him about his take on the american church, he simply stated that he was suprised that the american church survived this long without the Holy spirit. I dont know about you guys but I am ashamed because we have let it get this bad.... we need to make a difference.
