Years ago the churches of Scotland had come through a controversial period known as the Disruption. They were cold and divided. Then came Mr. Moody and Mr. Sankey. they were not “Reverend,” just “mister.” They looked like anything but pulpit personalities. Moody was without formal education and did terrible things to the King’s English. He probably had not even heard about the Disruption. He did not come to Scotland as an expert, but as an evangelist glorying in the grace of God. multitudes waited on his words and someone said, “It seemed as though someone had set to music a tune that had been haunting thousands of ears.” There is considerable disruption these days, and we have been arguing about the tune. It needs to be set to music once more.
“…thou sufferest that woman Jezebel…” (Revelation 2:20). God judges what we tolerate as well as what we practice. Too often we put up with things we ought to put out.
