What Is An Ism?
"But the bewildered, they become so bewildered till they try to organize some new "ism." And it ain't long until that new "ism," is like always, becomes a "wasm." They got a latter rain, and a former rain, and a middle rain, and a this, and a that, and another, some kind of an organization, denomination, and what happens to it? It dies just like all organization dies. And they're--they--they're bewildered. "Well now, we don't know what to do, we've got to get these people together. We--we got to separate ourself from this group or from that group." Just still bewildered, not knowing what to do, they don't know the real Easter message. The real Easter message wasn't going to make organizations: was to go and preach the Gospel, demonstrate the power of the Holy Spirit, and let Him take the church into His hand. But they're still bewildered, don't know what to do, and how."
