Tozer Quote 004

Taken from Mornings with Tozer, Spectator Christians:

This we have heard: ‘I am a born-again Christian and I am happy that my sins are forgiven and I go to church on Sunday because I like the fellowship!’

We ask: ‘Do you not go to put yourself in the way of spiritual blessing?’  The answer: ‘ No, I am saved and I do not need anything!’

We ask: ‘ Have you offered to witness, to pray, to encourage, to assist, to participate in your church’s life and outreach?’  The answer: ‘No.  My church seems to get along very well without my help!’

Brethren, this ‘non-participation’ kind of faith is a strange parody on Bible Christianity.  Men and women who say they are believers just cancel themselves out.  Is it something we have learned from the sporting events? – the great majority are spectators.  They come and sit!

If there is any true spiritual life within us, God will give us a gift of some kind and the humble soul will find something to do for God!
