A Cheapening of the Gospel

"The evangelists of today are very often prepared to be anything to anybody as long as they can get somebody to the alter for something. They glibly call out: "Who wants help? Who wants more power? Who wants a closer walk with God?" Such a sinning, repenting "easy believeism" dishonors the blood and prostitutes the alter. We must alter the alter, for the alter is a place to die on. Let those who will not pay this price leave it alone"

--Leonard Ravenhill, Why Revival Tarries, 1959, p.59-60
