Evangeline believed that The Salvation Army represented an aggressive style of Christianity. However, over the years, some of the early Army boldness has been lost. Perhaps it is time to bring it back. Here’s one step you can take to help bring back the boldness and fire of the glory days of The Salvation Army: Visit the Facebook page — Prayer Walking With The Salvation Army Flag
Here are some quotes from Evangeline Booth, an early leader in The Salvation Army and the daughter of William & Catherine Booth, co-founders of the Army:
‘Hardship, unbelief, suffering and poverty have not stopped our soldiery from rendering their service to God and man. The Salvation Army is a great empire, an empire without frontier, made up of a tangle of races, tongues, and colors, such as never before in all history gathered together under one flag.” –Evangeline Booth
“Be an enemy – a fighting enemy of the world, the flesh, and the devil. Be an aggressor; carry the war into the enemy’s camp. Be a fighter, a soldier, a man or woman who has the fire of war against sin in blood and bone.” –Evangeline Booth
“Herein is discovered one of the secrets of The Salvation Army’s power in the world uneducated, untrained people have become mighty servants of God because they not only consecrated all their strength and talents to be divinely quickened, but exercised them at full stretch for the Kingdom. Unsuspected reserves of ability and character have been set loose.” –Evangeline Booth
“The soldier of Christ is never too young and never too old to volunteer for service under the flag of the Gospel. His youth and his experience are alike needed in the elaborate and powerfully equipped corps to which they are assigned.” –Evangeline Booth
