Footnote #17. Many who have sought to preserve their rooting in the Spirit of Truth have mistakenly cast in their lot with the landlubbers. Hating laodiceanism and despising spirituality without fruit, and having failed at their own attempts to ride the sea, these have come out of the water altogether, concluding that the essence of Truth is found in the land itself. But this is a deception that in the end only leaves us with a form of truth. This is largely the state of the Deeper Life, Keswick, and other mystic-ascetic groups devoted to the Father who have rejected the Spirit's outpouring. Today, it is hard to tell the difference between those who have tried to escape the spirit-filled church to preserve their relationship with the Father, and those who have tried to escape because they simply don't believe in the Spirit's coming at all.
