Where is the Holiness of the Church of God Today?

"Where is the holiness of the church of God today? Ah! were she what she professed to be, she would be 'fair as the moon, clear as the sun', and then 'terrible as an army with banners'; but now she is dim as smoking flax, and rather the object of ridicule than of reverence. May not the measure of the influence of a church be estimated by its holiness? God's saints may well mourn with Jerusalem when they see spirituality and holiness at so low an ebb! Others may regard this as a matter of no consequence; but we view it as the breaking forth of a leprosy."

--Charles Spurgeon (1834–1892)
