"Philosophers are the Patriarchs of heretics" – Tertullian
Those whom the Lord has chosen and honoured with his intercourse must prepare for a hard, laborious, troubled life. –John Calvin
Thank you so much for sharing this quote. I know that many people just don’t want to hear the truth about what it really means to follow Christ … the real “counting of the cost.” While our reward does comes later, and yes, there is much joy now … our “itching ears” love the “prosperity message” without realizing the earthly fate of the early followers- the Apostles, etc. Our Pastor has really been preaching this lately, and we are glad to see this quote, confirming the truth of what really should be ahead for those who give their all to the pursuit of Christ.
You mean, not “Your best life now!”?
