“If he’s still in the Church, he’s no Christian!”
I had been invited to address students at an Evangelical college in Greece, where the chaplain was an American who’d been there 30 years. A few days earlier, at a home meeting in Athens, I encountered an American-born Greek Archimandrite [who had a retreat center in Florida – where we visited him at a later stage] who had been banned from speaking in the Church: he had created havoc in Athens in the 1970s by leading people to the Lord. The moment he walked into the room, you knew you were in the presence of a true man-of-God. After speaking to the students, in chatting with the chaplain I mentioned that encounter, which elicited the above outburst.
