Tried By the Faith



It is inevitable that the intellectual difficulties which each successive generation of Christians is called to discuss, should seem relatively larger than they are; and need from time to time, to therefore to be replaced in their proper perspective.

For if we look back on the years that are past, we see that men have often thought the Christian Faith to be on its trial, when they, in fact, themselves were being tried by the Faith.
