C Peter Wagner on Mistaken Teaching on Pastors

"We taught in the 1990's that church pastors were the spiritual gatekeepers of the city ... and we were mistaken. It is in my books and you should tear those pages out. Church pastors are very low on the influence scale in most societies ... My friend Che Ahn is seeing high influence actors coming from Hollywood to his church in Pasadena because he is equipping his people to move in arts and entertainment".

C Peter Wagner on Modern Dissatisfaction

"Many modern Christians are not satisfied with Christianity as usual. They are fed up with playing church. The status quo has little appeal. Their desire is to look back at the end of the day and say; "Praise God! His Kingdom has advanced and He has allowed me to be a part of it!". They don't want to be spectators; they want to be participants in the great work that God is doing today".

John G Lake on Praying for Revival

"Then the LORD said to Moses, “Why are you crying out to me? Tell the Israelites to move on. Raise your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea to divide the water so that the Israelites can go through the sea on dry ground.” - Exodus 14:15-16

God did not even say, you stretch out your hand, and I will divide the sea. But God said to Moses: “Stretch out your hand over the sea, and divide it.” It was not an act for God to perform,but it was an act for Moses to believe for. The responsibility was not with God, it was with Moses. A weak Christianity is ever inclined to whine in prayer, while God waits for the believer to command it. In my judgment, that is the place of extreme weakness in Christian character. I feel that very frequently prayer is made a refuge, to dodge the action of faith".
