Quotes (636)

“For centuries the Church stood solidly against every form of worldly entertainment, recognizing it for what it was—a device for wasting time, a refuge from the disturbing voice of conscience, a scheme to divert attention from moral accountability. For this she got herself abused roundly by the sons of this world. But of late she has become tired of the abuse and has given over the struggle. She appears to have decided that if she cannot conquer the great god Entertainment she may as well join forces with him and make what use she can of his powers. So today we have the astonishing spectacle of millions of dollars being poured into the unholy job of providing earthly entertainment for the so-called sons of heaven. Religious entertainment is in many places rapidly crowding out the serious things of God. Many churches these days have become little more than poor theaters where fifth-rate “producers” peddle their shoddy wares with the full approval of evangelical leaders who can even quote a holy text in defense of their delinquency.

And hardly a man dares raise his voice against it.”

A.W. Tozer
1897 – 1963

  1. Good one!

    He left us in 1963. Things are so much worse now. Too bad his voice went unheeded.

  2. Wow. How prophetic. If only he could see the vile filth and wicked distractions we now employ to entertain the goats.
    And it’s only going to get worse.

    – The Pilgrim

  3. Oh how my heart weeps at the extent of the deception among the “Christians” of today. Very few are willing to take a stand and expose it. I am often a chicken myself and sometimes wonder if I am being too sensitive. It is good to read some of the bold writtings of ones like A.W. Tozer

    Oh the joy of having nothing
    being nothing
    and seeing nothing but a risen Christ in glory,
    and being careful for nothing
    but His interest down here.

    John Nelson Darby
