Chief dangers which confront the coming century - William Booth - Salvation Army

,




I read these words last night by William Booth and was stirred to think of the dangerous times we are living in:

William Booth, who lived from 1829 to 1916, was the founder of the Salvation Army. As the 20th century began, he was asked by someone what he saw as the greatest dangers for the next hundred years. His response is chilling, when taking into account the cultural and political condition of the world through the 20th century and into today. This is how he responded:

“In answer to your inquiry, I consider that the chief dangers which confront the coming century will be religion without the Holy Ghost, Christianity without Christ, forgiveness without repentance, salvation without regeneration, politics without God, and heaven without hell.”
