By H.A. Ironside
The leader purposes that experience come sooner than me to prevent my writing them heretofore are these:
(a) The detailing of a big degree of non-public adventure is inevitably concerned. this can be distasteful to many, and to none greater than to myself. yet i've been a lot inspired in recent times with the various circumstances within which the manager of the apostles makes use of his personal adventure as a caution and lesson to others who might placed self assurance within the flesh. For this reason on my own i'm eventually persuaded to relate my very own endeavors to achieve perfection via following the so-called "holiness teaching." There can definitely be no cost introduced opposed to me of glorying in self in so doing. The list is just too humiliating for that. Nor do I wish to take a morbid pride in detailing my disasters. yet for this recital of my prior mistakes and current blessedness i have never basically apostolic instance, however the complete e-book of Ecclesiastes is an identical checklist; written in simple terms that others could be spared the agony and unhappiness of treading an analogous weary path.
(b) it really is tricky to write down an account like this with no obvious feedback of the association to which I as soon as belonged, either as to its tools and its doctrines. This I diminish from. i've got the fullest sympathy with the good paintings being performed one of the "submerged" within the better towns of the realm by means of those self-denying staff, and that i wouldn't say or write a observe to prevent any who hence search to avoid wasting the outcast and wayward. I simply remorse that the converts will not be given a clearer gospel, and extra scriptural guideline afterwards. a lot of my previous "comrades" are nonetheless toiling as I as soon as toiled in what they think is a God-raised-up and God-directed "Army"; whose educating they think about to be totally in accord with Scripture; and that i be aware of this list needs to supply a few of them ache. i'd spare them this if i may. but if I mirror that millions are every year being disheartened and discouraged by way of their educating; that enormous quantities every year are ensnared into infidelity in the course of the cave in of the useless attempt to achieve the unimaginable; that rankings have really misplaced their minds and at the moment are inmates of asylums a result of psychological grief and suffering resultant upon their sour unhappiness within the look for holiness; i think I aren't enable sentimental purposes to prevent my pertaining to the unvarnished fact, within the desire that below the blessing of God it could possibly lead many to discover in Christ Himself that sanctification which they could by no means locate somewhere else, and in His pass that exhibition of ideal love which they'll search for in useless of their personal hearts and lives.
Therefore I ship forth those papers, praying that either the experimental and doctrinal components will be worthwhile to many and obstacles to none; and in commending all to the reader's religious intelligence, i might earnestly beseech him to "prove all issues, and carry quick that that is good."
