Doctrine, revival and Basil Manly Jr.

I am always amazed at those who think that reform/revival can genuinely take place without concern for doctrine. Classic orthodoxy is essential for anything that can be called a move of God. And how sad when such substantial doctrine is in place and it be taken away to make way for so-called better ways of doing ministry! Basil Manly, Jr. put it this way in his great hymn: "Soldiers of Christ, in truth arrayed/A world in ruins needs your aid." It is only as we are arrayed in truth that we can help anyone in this world.
