America Is Too Young To Die


Leonard Ravenhill Quotes on America

“It has been well said that there are only three classes of people in the world today: those who are afraid, those who do not know enough to be afraid, and those who know their Bibles. Sodom, which had no Bible, no preachers, no tracts, no prayer meetings, no churches, perished. How then will America and England be spared from the wrath of the Almighty, think you? We have millions of Bibles, scores of thousands of churches, endless preachers—and yet what sin!” – Leonard Ravenhill- Why Revival Tarries “This much is sure: this generation is mesmerized by materialism and tantalized by TV. It is jeopardized by evils no other age has known, and victimized by cruel, malicious propaganda that clouds reality and therefore confuses thinking. The last but not least ingredient of this ‘witches brew’ is the religious jackanapes, attracting the crowd to his revival jamboree with the lure of miracles, as a cover-up for his itch for gold.” – Leonard Ravenhill “God is taking His hands off of America. We’ve had so much light and we’ve rejected it.” – Leonard Ravenhill “There isn’t a “Pentecostal” Church in America. If there is, tell me where it is.”  – Leonard Ravenhill “I wish, in America, (that) we were as concerned about separation from church and sin as we are about separation between church and state. Church and sin– it’s a monstrous problem.” – Leonard Ravenhill “The sinner’s prayer has sent more people to hell than all the taverns in America.” – Leonard Ravenhill “We’ve gone into other countries… have we taken the Gospel? No! We have not taken the Gospel; we’re giving them American Christianity or English Christianity! Bible-Christianity: it’s the most costly thing in the world; it’s the most beautiful thing in the world; it’s the most glorious thing in the world.” – Leonard Ravenhill “America is not dying because of the strength of humanism; it’s dying because of the weakness of evangelism! We take people to the cross, (but) we don’t put them on the cross.” – Leonard Ravenhill “I doubt if 5% of professing Christians in America are born again–and that’s true of England!” – Leonard Ravenhill “There’s no cost of being a Christian in America. Good Lord, no!” – Leonard Ravenhill “I want to see something that God builds. I want to find some people so hungry for God that every night they want to pray and make intercession. We’re not going to move America any other way. We’ve tried every scheme and every fancy thing and (we) try and work something up, but what we need is (for) somebody to come down. Some Person! Not a new theology, a Person!” – Leonard Ravenhill “I believe the choice in America (will come down to this): either we concentrate in prayer or (we’ll end up) praying in concentration camps. You say it can’t happen. It will!” – Leonard Ravenhill “There is no other way for America to be saved un1ess we have a Holy Ghost revivaI that makes men hate sin and loathe sin and turn from sin and repent from sin!” – Leonard Ravenhill “I don’t believe twenty people in all of America, with its 230 million people, have ever been in a revival. A revival that stops the traffic; a revival where the lights never go out for months– weeks and weeks and weeks in the sanctuary; a revival where the prayer meeting never ends!” – Leonard Ravenhill “One thing that really crushes me is when I think that America has 500 evangelists and not one revivalist; not one that can shake a city.” – Leonard Ravenhill “I want to be on the devil’s list of most wanted men in America; any other list, forget it!” – Leonard Ravenhill “The greatest need tonight in America is prophets!” – Leonard Ravenhill “A man came into my office from another nation and he dropped this in my ear, “Christianity began in Palestine and it became a religion; it was transferred to Greece and it became a philosophy; it was transferred to Europe– to England– it became a cult and it was transferred to America (and) it became big business. Our young people have never seen (true) Christianity.” – Leonard Ravenhill
