A Few Quotes From Neil Cole’s “Primal Fire”

A few quotations from Neil Cole’s book, “Primal Fire”

“I’ve longed to live the sort of life I read about in the book of Acts.

“I want to be part of an unstoppable Jesus movement in our day–a wildfire of the Spirit that spreads rapidly and uncontrollably and leaves behind people who are transformed into healthy, mature, life-giving followers of King Jesus . . . I believe we are about to witness the eruption of a spiritual wildfire like nothing seen since the First Century . . . I have waited my whole life for this.  I believe it is inevitable and coming soon, and I’m willing to give my life for it.  Are you?”

“There is simply no comparison between the potential and performance of a ministry built on the backs of exalted leaders and one that empowers ordinary Christians to do the work themselves.”

“Unfortunately, many Christians lack confidence that they can indeed hear God’s voice correctly.  For far too long, the teaching of the church has ingrained a fear in ordinary Christians that they need the help of experts if they are to hear God’s voice correctly.  We have been taught that we could easily make a big mistake by even trying to hear God’s voice without professional help . . . For many, God speaks on in their pastor’s voice.

“The power of the gospel is built on love, not skill or methodology.”

“Reliance on methods, rather than on the active, present work of the Holy Spirit, obscures the true source of power that is latent in all of us.”

“We need to change our values a leaders.  If we’re not willing to give away our positions to others by equipping them for the work of service, we don’t deserve the positions we have.  Our identity and security are to be in Christ, not is a title or role in a religious organization.”

“Look for Jesus outside your normal experience.”

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
