What do You Think of This Quote?
UPDATE Sept 2021: I have come to believe that Jeff Crippen does not practise what he preaches. He vilely persecuted an abuse victim and spiritually abused many other people in the Tillamook congregation. Go here to read the evidence. Jeff has not gone to the people that he spiritually and emotionally abused. He has not apologised to them, let alone asked for their forgiveness.
No, the quote is not by me! It is from Pastor Albert N. Martin’s farewell addresses to his congregation in New Jersey after some 46 years of ministry. I have not seen the context of it, but I do know that this quote is posted in several places on the web in a positive context. But…. well, tell me what you think:
“The four giant-killers of preachers—money, pride, unbridled ambition, and women—have killed their thousands. By the grace of God, they’ve not slain me.”
Ouch. Women! Those women!
