How would William Booth Respond??
I'm taking a little break from my salvationism series to share this gem with you!!

The blog was,

I just read this on a blog: "I am very concerned about this whole "Primitive Salvationist" thing. Mostly because it appears to be sweeping through the young people of The Salvation Army like wildfire, and I'm afraid there are a lot of kids jumping on the "band wagon" because it's the cool thing to do."

I believe the founder would have responded with this,

"They say we go too fast! This accusation comes from all directions. Our enemies do not like our speed and our friends are afraid of it. What do they mean? If they had complained that we did not go fast enough, I could understand them. If our enemies had argued that after all we say about the evils of sin, the terrors of the Judgment Day, and the damnation of hell, we do not believe in these things ourselves, I could understand that, and feel humbled under their indictment."



This quoate is worth gleaning to the point of understanding.

Also check out Jonathans recent blogs on the whole PrimSalvo stuff, its worth a chew.

you think maybe person a is afraid for the youth not bc of what could happen by returning to our roots but because they dont want the fire to die bc its not so much a fire as it is following the crowd?
of course- if enough people are REALLY on fire, then other people will catch on fire- so it doesnt matter.
revolution is coming- no one can stop it. yay.

Some people are misinformed or simply don't understand. The best we can do is to help them understand (as long as they willing to listen).

When I blogged this i tried to do so in a humility. But i have to say i am proud of where the Lord is bringing the army. He is igniting a fuse under people. Thats all I wanted to say.

Let them follow the crowd if Jesus leads it. I repeat, if Jesus leads it. Faith is a powerful thing, but faith in mankind is futile.
