Tough Talk on Sactification

A.W. Tozer
I love it...

I do not know why you fear sanctification and I do not care. But I do say this: you had better mortify your flesh, or your flesh will do something terrible to you. In these terrible days in which we live, we have not only accepted the flesh in its morally fine manifestation as being quite proper, but we have created an ignoble theology of "extenuating circumstances," by which we excuse the flesh. (Taken from Success and the Christian by A.W. Tozer, page 44.)

How many of us need to hear that? How many need to hear it just that bluntly? I do.
