Why does revival tarry? The answer is simple enough—because evangelism is so highly commercialized. The tithes of widows and of the poor are spent in luxury-living by many evangelists. The great crowds, great lines of seekers, great appreciation by the mayor, etc., are shouted to high heaven. All get publicity—except the love-offering! The poor dupes who give ‘‘think they do God service,’’ while all they are doing is keeping a big-reputationed, small-hearted preacher living in Hollywood style.
