The interference of man |

TBC Staff

The history of the Church makes one thing absolutely clear: the unity, doctrinal soundness, Scriptural order, and power of the Church can be preserved only by the power of the Spirit. Equally evident is the fact that the Holy Spirit can do this only as there is absolute surrender to the Lord and obedience to His Word. The introduction of man’s wisdom and power at any point inevitably brings loss of spiritual power, authority and communion and leads to division, stagnation and defeat until an effective witness ceases.
