The Church No Longer Kills Its Prophets

Lennard Darbee makes a thought provoking comment in his book, Tongues the Dynamite of God:

“Unlike ancient Israel, the Church no longer kills the prophets, it simply ignores them, and it is not so much the neglect of the fruits, but rather the contempt of the gifts that hamstrings the Church of our day. Does God go to great length describing the gifts of the Spirit–of which he would not have us ignorant, line them up like ninepins and then with love for a bowling ball, do away with them? We are to desire spiritual gifts.” (pp. 26-27.)

On D. L. Moody speaking in tongues:

At a meeting in Los Angeles, Dr. R.A. Torrey told of a service in London where Moody took the pulpit to preach and instead broke into another language. He tried again, with similar results. The third time, after prayer and praise, he was able to preach his message.Lennard Darbee, Tongues: The Dynamite of God, p. 24.
