Why Am I A Cumberland Presbyterian? (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Why Am I A Cumberland Presbyterian?
In our Christian life we find a perpetual conflict. This is not the place for pointing out the nature of that conflict, or describing the sources from which it arises. The conflict itself is a matter of experience and observation. "All that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution." Persecution comes from wicked or misguided men. We have, moreover, enemies within, as well as without. Satan, too, goes about as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. We need all the aids which we can procure. We need the sympathy, counsel, prayers, and cooperation of society. We are to hear one another s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. God, in his providence, has established a visible Church upon the earth.
