Emphasis added“Surely those who know the great passionate heart ofJehovah must deny their own loves to share in thestatement of His. Consider the call from the Throne above,Go ye, and from round about, Come over and help us, andeven the call from the damned souls below, Send Lazarusto my brothers, that they come not to this place. Impelled,then, by these voices, I dare not stay home while Quichuasperish. So what if the well-fed church in the homelandneeds stirring? They have the Scriptures, Moses, and theProphets, and a whole lot more. Their condemnation iswritten on their bank books and in the dust on their Biblecovers. American believers have sold their lives to theservice of Mammon, and God has His rightful way ofdealing with those who succumb to the spirit of Laodicea."
