AW Tozer Quotes

awt.jpg“We need a baptism of clear seeing. We desperately need seers who can see through the mist—Christian leaders with prophetic vision. Unless they come soon it will be too late for this generation. And if they do come we will no doubt crucify a few of them in the name of our worldly orthodoxy.”

“The simplicity which is in Christ is rarely found among us. In its stead, are programs, methods, organizations and a world of nervous activities which occupy time and attention but can never satisfy the longing of the heart. The shallowness of our inner experience, the hollowness of our worship, and that servile imitation of the world which marks our promotional methods all testify that we, in this day, know God only imperfectly, and the peace of God scarcely at all”

“The first step down for any church is taken when it surrenders its high opinion of God.”

“We must do something about the cross and one of two things only: we can flee it or die upon it! The cross will cut into our lives where it hurts worst, sparing neither us nor our carefully cultivated reputations”
