You might as well try and dam Niagara Falls with toothpicks as to stop the reform wave sweeping our land.

I believe there is no doctrine more dangerous to the Church today than to convey the impression that a revival is something peculiar in itself and cannot be judged by the same rules of causes and effect as other things.
