What is contemplative prayer?

Dear brethren, another article has been added: “What is contemplative prayer?”

http://www.oldpaths.com/Archive/Davison/Roy/Allen/1940/contemplativeprayer.html

to go along with the recent article:

“What are spiritual disciplines?”

http://www.oldpaths.com/Archive/Davison/Roy/Allen/1940/whatarespiritualdisciplines.html

The second article listed has been updated since it was first published, so you might need to read it again to have the latest version.

These two articles are a refutation of mysticism that is being introduced among churches of Christ in some areas.

An evangelist is commanded: “Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching” (2 Tim. 4:2). I heard brother Marshall Keeble say: “That ‘in season and out of season’ means that you preach it if they like it and you preach it if they don’t.”

Refutation is not the most pleasant part of a preacher’s work, but it is essential, and sometimes an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

May the Lord bless you.
