A Quote From A Friend

A man that I deeply respect who was part of an underground church in another country was talking to a mutual friend lately.  In the midst of that conversation, he stopped and said something that our mutual friend later relayed to me.  There was just too much wisdom in this statement not to relay it to you:

“You know what the problem with the church in America is?  You never know whether a Christian is strong or not.  You can only tell in the midst of persecution.” Selah.

    Very deep…will sit on that for a bit. That was very insightful, and a bit gut-wrenching.
