“Look at the New Testament Christian, look at the New Testament church, and you see it vibrant with a spiritual life, and, of course, it is always life that tends to lead to excesses.  There is no problem of discipline in a graveyard; there is no problem very much in a formal church.”

Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Joy Unspeakable: Power and Renewal in the Holy Spirit.  Wheaton, IL: Harold Shaw Publishers, 1984, page 19.
