Prophetic Words

I've just begun reading Iain Murray's new book The Old Evangelicalism, which (like all Murray's books) is a treasure-trove of great quotes. The one below is found in the Preface, and comes from William Booth (1901). When asked to forecast changes in the church for the 20th century Booth gave this assessment:

"Religion without the Holy Ghost, Christianity without Christ, forgiveness without repentance, salvation without regeneration, politics without God and heaven without hell."

Sadly prescient, I'd say.
