Thomas Watson – Are You a Fair-Weather Christian?

17 Feb

To be holiest in evil times, is an indication of the truth of grace.
To profess religion when the times favor it, is no great matter. Almost all will court the Gospel Queen when she is hung with jewels. But to own the ways of God when they are decried and maligned, to love a persecuted truth–this evidences a vital principle of goodness. Dead fish swim down the stream–living fish swim against it. To swim against the common stream of evil, shows grace to be alive.

~Thomas Watson~
