“The Love of the Truth”

“There is a tendency in the Church today to emphasize unity and love at the expense of the truth and to speak disparagingly of those who place great emphasis on doctrine and contending for the faith. Those who put “unity” ahead of truth and fail to rebuke today’s false values and superficiality among Christians[… ] who reject the call to repent of false teachings as “negative” and insist that we are now in the greatest revival in history, would do well to take seriously the prophecy spoken during the famous Azusa Street revival in Los Angeles in 1906: ‘In the last days three things will happen in the great Pentecostal Movement: 1) There will be an overemphasis on power, rather than on righteousness. 2) There will be an overemphasis on praise, to a God they no longer pray to. 3) There will be an overemphasis on the gifts of the Spirit – rather than on the Lordship of Christ.’” (Dave Hunt)
