More Old Time Thinking

The church is the living family of the living God and as such cannot be a static institution, doting on it's past traditions. It must be a vital, aggressive, spiritual organism assaulting all the deeply entrenched evils of earth in the name of God.

This is from Studies in Timothy by C.A. Trentham. This was a book put out by the SS Board of the Southern Baptist Convention in the 40's and 50's. These books were used for training union purposes, and offer a great glimpse into the thought life of the SBC during that time.

This could have been written yesterday, but instead is 50 years old. "There is no new idea under the sun" Seems like I have read that somewhere...
