Red-hot, unconventional, unfettered Holy Ghost religion

Christ’s call is … to save the lost, not the stiff- necked; He came
not to call scoffers but sinners to repentance; not to build and
furnish comfortable chapels, churches, and cathedrals at home in which
to rock Christian professors to sleep by means of clever essays,
stereotyped prayers and artistic musical performances, but to capture
men from the devil’s clutches and snatch them from the very jaws of
Hell. But this can be accomplished only by a red-hot, unconventional,
unfettered Holy Ghost religion, where neither man nor traditions are
worshiped or preached, but only Christ and Him crucified.

Pioneer [1933], Norman P. Grubb, Read Books, 2008, p. 163
