The Truth About Persecution
A.W. Tozer once wrote, "The modern Cross of today does not slay the sinner, it redirects him. It gears him into a cleaner and jollier way of living and saves his self-respect. The old Cross is a symbol of death. God salvages the individual by liquidating him and then raising him again to newness of life. The life He offers is life out of death. Among the plastic saints of our times, Jesus has to do all the dying and all we want is to hear another sermon about His dying."
