Modern Church Machinery
Friends! the church of Christ has no need of the Modern Machinery which has supplanted the simplicity of faith. I verily believe, if the Lord swept the church committees and missionary societies out of the universe, we would be better without them.
I hope the church will soon say, like David in Saul's clanking armor, “I cannot go with these, for I have not tested them,” (1. Samuel 17,39) and with only her sling and her stone, confident in her God, I trust she will confront her foe. We can do all things, if we can but trust Christ.
“All things are possible to him that believes” (Mark 9,23). But nothing is possible to your schemes, and to your systems. God will sweep them away yet, and happy shall be that man who shall lead the van in their utter destruction!
Go up against her, take away her bulwarks, for they are not the Lord's; He did not ordain them, nor will He standby them. Act in faith, O you people of God, and prove the power of prayer, for “all things are possible to him that believes”.
The fact is, God does not need our power, but our weakness; not our greatness, but our nothingness.
