2 A.W. Tozer:The history of mankind will probably show that no people has ever risen above its religion, and man’s spiritual history will positively demonstrate that no religion has ever been greater than its idea of God…. For this reason the gravest question before the Church is always God Himself, and the most portentous fact about any man is not what he at a given

Were we able to extract from any man a complete answer to the question, “What comes into your mind when you think about God?” we might predict with certainty the spiritual future of that man.
