A Power Greater Than Both

“There is no need for Protestants to be stampeded into making a choice between the power of the Pope [Fascism] and the power of Russia [Communism]. Protestants have in their possession a power greater than both of these combined, namely, the very power of God in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. With St. Paul they must declare, ‘I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation to them that believe.’”

Protestants will lose their freedoms only after they have first lost their religious convictions which have made their freedoms possible. Freedom, as we know it, came out of the Protestant Reformation. The basis of this freedom was deep religious conviction.”

“If we are losing this freedom we had better ask ourselves are we not first of all losing the religious convictions of the early Protestants that made this freedom possible. The greatest need today is for a revival of the power of God in the hearts of true believers, and an outpouring of this spiritual power upon the world to counteract the destructive power of material inventions [materialism]”
