Scholars and Prophets ;-)

Came across a great quote of A. W. Tozer on a seminary website: “Scholars can interpret the past; it takes prophets to interpret the present.” 

This is true of the Bible!  Scholars can interpret the original meaning of the Bible.  It takes prophets to apply it to the present!  This is the scandal of evangelical and mainline hermeneutics, but not of the Pentecostal or revivalist traditions.
