The strength, and the weakness

This is the strength of Christianity: that beyond all the good and all the evil in the world, no matter what happens to us as individuals, as families, or as nations, our stability remains intact, because it is founded on the unchangeable God and His Christ, who is the same yesterday, today and forever.

This is the weakness of Christianity: that in spite of the guarantee of God that He provides, sustains, and protects beyond all appearances, those who say they believe do not trust Him in everything, but rather seek to provide for themselves, seek their treasure on earth, and protect even Him.

The tragedy of Christianity is that it continues to exist, generation after generation, in this weakness. The miracle of Christianity is that it still produces, that is, Christ still strengthens, His saints.
