A. W. Tozer on narrow-minded Christians, negativity, and obedience

A. W. Tozer  TozerHead

Narrow minded

“One of the Most stinging criticisms made against Christians is that their minds are narrow and their hearts small.”
The Root of the Righteous, 113.

Negative Convictions

“Too many of our religious convictions are negative. We act not from a positive conviction that something is right, but from a feeling that the opposite is wrong.”
— Of God and Men, 94. —

Obedience

“The man that believes will obey; failure to obey is convincing proof that there is no true faith present. To attempt the impossible God must give faith or there will be none, and He gives faith to the obedient heart only.”
Man the Dwelling Place of God, 33.

Let a man set his heart only on doing the will of God and he is instantly free. No one can hinder him.
The Root of the Righteous, 129.
