IS THERE A CAMEL IN YOUR TENT?
A. W. Tozer, a Christian Pastor, editor, and author of numerous devotional books, died in 1963. He was a man keenly observant, discerning and insightful relative to spiritual matters. Towards the end of his life he wrote the following relative to the steady erosion of fundamental Christianity:
“Faith may now be exercised without a jar to the moral life and without embarrassment to the Adamic ego. Christ may be “received” without creating any special love for Him in the soul of the believer. The man is “saved, but he is not hungry nor thirsty after God. In fact he is specifically taught to be satisfied and encouraged; to be content with little."
Tozer was referring here to a false concept relative to what it means to be saved; a concept that was growing popular in his day, and has come into full bloom in ours. He had only gotten a glimpse of the nose of the camel of confusion and apostasy that now stands front and center in the middle of the tent of today’s “Christianity”— a “camel” of counterfeit Christianity now being fed, watered, embraced and celebrated by a vast multitude of people who profess to know Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. (See Matt. 5:1-16; 7:21-23; 2 Cor. 5;27).
