The Failures of the Church

Boston Herald

Taking  for his text the words, "Not by might nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of Hosts," Dr. L. W. Munhall of Philadelphia recently preached at the Clarendon Street Baptist Church, Boston.

The speaker declared that, if ever there was a time to look heavenward because of a great spiritual declension, it is now. This is a time when the enemies of God are boastful.

"They that believe on him shall receive," is as true in Boston to-day as at Ephesus centuries ago. God alone can give you grace. You may have organizations systematically arranged, you may have your pews in the churches filled with influential men and women of wealth, but if the spirit of God is not in them, the church is desolate, for "it is not by might nor by power, but by my spirit alone," saith the Lord of Hosts.
