Will US Believers Suffer Well?

In 2008, I heard John Piper talk about his book Spectacular Sins.

Piper’s prophetic about US Christians persecution and partnering in suffering is strong, biblical and true…. It makes me wonder if this is the tonic for what ails us?

When things do not go well for you personally, physically or politically will it be a crisis of faith for you?

“Our felt needs are about to change.”

“Coddled people will not be good listeners when their world collapses.”

“The aim of this book is not to meet felt needs, but to awaken needs that will soon be felt, and then to save your faith and strengthen your courage when evil prevails.”

“If we are to endure and bear and believe and hope, we need to see the spectacular sins of history the way God sees them. I hope this book helps.”
