“Evangelical Christianity is now tragically below the
New Testament standard. Worldliness is an accepted
part of our way of life.

Our religious mood is social instead of spiritual.
We have lost the art of worship. We are not producing
saints. Our models are successful business men,
celebrated athletes and theatrical personalities.

We carry on our religious activities after the methods of
the modern advertiser. Our literature is shallow and
our hymnody borders on sacrilege. And scarcely
anyone appears to care.”

aiden wilson (a.w.) tozer (1867 – 1963)
pastor and author of over 40 books, two of which, the pursuit of god and knowledge of the holy, are considered to be christian classics.
