To Save the Lost |

TBC Staff

Christ's call is to save the lost, not the stiff-necked; He came not to call scoffers but sinners to repentance; not to build and furnish comfortable chapels, churches, and cathedrals at home in which to rock Christian professors to sleep by means of clever essays, stereotyped prayers, and artistic musical performances, but to capture men from the devil's clutches and the very jaws of Hell. This can be accomplished only by a red-hot, unconventional, unfettered devotion, in the power of the Holy Spirit, to the Lord Jesus Christ.

--C.T. Studd (1860-1931. Studd is remembered both as a cricketer and missionary. As a British Christian missionary to China he was part of the Cambridge Seven, and later founded the Heart of Africa Mission which became the Worldwide Evangelisation Crusade, now known as WEC International).
