Onward to conquer the world with fire and blood

There is little doubt in my mind that in the past Salvationists were convinced that it was wholly possible that the world could be won for Christ.

"We are sent to make war and to stop short of nothing but the subjugation of the world to the sway of the Lord Jesus." William Booth

"The decree has gone forth that the kingdoms of this world shall become the kingdoms of our Lord and of his Christ and that he shall reign, whose right it is from the River to the ends fo the earth. We shall win. It is only a question of time. I believe that this movement shall inaugurate the great final conquest of our Lord Jesus Christ." Catherine Booth

"Thus any organisation that is able continuously to possess and impart God may become the life-centre of a religious system that shall permeate and unify the world."
Commissioner Booth-Tucker

"The salvation of the whole world could be accomplished during our lifetime if every saved person each got one other saved each year." Commissioner Blowers 1940
In his name and for his sake
