Is Suffering Evidence That We Lack Faith?

November 27, 2013

“In our day of feel-good Christianity, we have come up with a wrong view of our spiritual journey. We think of suffering as something abnormal, as evidence that we lack faith. We work so hard to escape suffering that we fail to realize what good things might be happening in us as we suffer. But that’s wrong. That’s more Buddhist than Christian.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, Shattered Dreams, Page 160
