"I am very burdened about my country, the United States of America. I love my country. I am concerned about the carelessness of sinners, the coldness of the saints, and the compromise of society. I am concerned about the pathetic pulpits of churches that are filled with hirelings that have mastered the art of almost saying something. The church, as someone said, is quickly becoming a NON-PROPHET organization."
"I am concerned about the country clubs we have across this country with steeples on them that we call churches. Many of our churches are full of latte sipping, social drinking, compromising, half-hearted members who never weep over sin, much less over souls."
