Lecture 8, Mountains Cast Into the Sea:
As part of God’s curse in Genesis 3, life in a fallen world is fraught with hardship. As a result, Christians experience things like hunger, disease, and sorrow. In addition to these natural obstacles and difficulties, Jesus also warned His disciples that they would experience enmity and opposition from others because of their relationship to Him. Today, whether living amidst the comforts of the Western world or in places where Christianity is outlawed, all Christians are called upon to endure various trials. For this reason, it is vitally important to cling to Jesus Christ in faith; as Jesus promised, faith can enable His people to overcome any obstacle or opposition.
