Romans 8:6-7 KJV
“For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
“Without the pure gospel and true revival, the church will have less influence on the world than TV, internet, movies, news, and public schools.” －Johnson and Pearl
“Without the pure gospel and true revival, sinners will give excuses like, “I have no time for church”, while they have plenty of time for TV, movies, friends, drinking and partying.” －Johnson and Pearl
“Ministers who do not spend two hours a day in prayer are not worth a dime a dozen – degrees or no degrees.” — Leonard Ravenhill
“Without the pure gospel and true revival, sinners won’t care about God and eternal things, they will sin as much as they want, their carnal minds won’t repent, and they will continue to be at enmity with God.” －Johnson and Pearl
“Without the pure gospel and true revival, the world and the sinners thereof will continue to choose money, sex, power, fame, parties, mansions, and big cars over God and Jesus Christ. Sinners will always choose to be in the driver’s seat of their lives than to submit to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.” －Johnson and Pearl
1 John 2:15-17 Amplified Bible
15 Do not love the world [of sin that opposes God and His precepts], nor the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
16 For all that is in the world—the lust and sensual craving of the flesh and the lust and longing of the eyes and the boastful pride of life [pretentious confidence in one’s resources or in the stability of earthly things]—these do not come from the Father, but are from the world.
17 The world is passing away, and with it its lusts [the shameful pursuits and ungodly longings]; but the one who does the will of God and carries out His purposes lives forever.
“The failure of today’s Christianity can be attributed to failure to preach the true gospel, failure to put away idols, failure to crucify the flesh, and failure to faithfully pray for revival and the repentance of lost sinners." -Johnson and Pearl
“The human soul is ever lazy toward God, and no generation has seemed to be able to travel very far on its way back to God and His standard from which the early church fell. It is true that human error or understanding continually satisfies itself with a part instead of the whole, but the real fact is that men are not willing to pay the full price to come back fully to God’s standard, to be all the Lord’s. －Frank Bartleman
