10 Christian Quotes By General William Booth

The greatness of a man’s power is the measure of his surrender. – William Booth

While women weep, as they do now, I’ll fight; while children go hungry, as they do now I’ll fight; while men go to prison, in and out, in and out, as they do now, I’ll fight; while there is a drunkard left, while there is a poor lost girl upon the streets, while there remains one dark soul without the light of God, I’ll fight; I’ll fight to the very end! – William Booth

There are different kinds of fire; there is false fire. No one knows this better than we do, but we are not such fools as to refuse good bank notes because there are false ones in circulation; and although we see here and there manifestations of what appears to us to be nothing more than mere earthly fire, we none the less prize and value, and seek for the genuine fire which comes from the altar of the Lord. – General William Booth

‘Not called!’ did you say? Not heard the call,’ I think you should say. Put your ear down to the Bible, and hear Him bid you go and pull sinners out of the fire of sin. Put your ear down to the burdened, agonized heart of humanity, and listen to its pitiful wail for help. Go stand by the gates of hell, and hear the damned entreat you to go to their father’s house and bid their brothers and sisters and servants and masters not to come there. Then look Christ in the face — whose mercy you have professed to obey — and tell Him whether you will join heart and soul and body and circumstances in the march to publish His mercy to the world. – General William Booth

God loves with a great love the man whose heart is bursting with a passion for the IMPOSSIBLE. – William Booth

Go for souls. Go straight for souls, and go for the worst. – General William Booth
We are not sent to minister to a congregation and be content if we keep things going. We are sent to make war and to stop short of nothing but the subjugation of the world to the sway of the Lord Jesus. – General William Booth

Secular music, do you say, belongs to the devil? Does it? Well, if it did I would plunder him for it, for he has no right to a single note of the whole seven. Every note, and every strain, and every harmony is divine, and belongs to us. – General William Booth

I consider that the chief dangers which confront the coming century will be religion without the Holy Ghost; Christianity without Christ; forgiveness without repentance; salvation without regeneration; politics without God; and Heaven without Hell. – General William Booth

We must wake ourselves up! Or somebody else will take our place, and bear our cross, and thereby rob us of our crown. – General William Booth

Promoted To Glory

In his later years, he was received in audience by kings, emperors, and presidents, who were among his ardent admirers. Even the mass media began to use his title of ‘General’ with reverence.

William Booth was 83 years old when he was “Promoted to Glory” as they say in the Salvation Army, at his home in Hadley Wood, London.

At the three-day lying in state at Clapton Congress Hall 150,000 people filed past his casket.

On 27 August 1912 Booth’s funeral service was held at London’s Olympia where 40,000 people attended, including Queen Mary, who sat almost unrecognized far to the rear of the great hall.
