A few quotes

"Christian faith does not grant immunity from sadness and sickness, from bereavement and disappointment. At least not now! Those who suggest that it does mean the present enjoyment of health and wealth and peace and prosperity appeal to the general desire for wellbeing that marks our culture. But such a story is neither true to the Bible nor to human experience" -Alistair Begg

"The truth is that more spiritual progress is made through failure and tears than success and laughter" - AlistairBegg

"Ease and luxury, such as our affluence brings today, do not make for maturity; hardship and struggle however do" - J.I. Packer
