Message 4, Take Up Your Cross:

There are those who tell unbelievers that if they become Christians, all their troubles will be over. In reality, to become a Christian means to enter into an intense battle, and battles involve suffering. In this lecture, Dr. Derek Thomas examines what Scripture teaches us concerning the suffering of Christians in the present age. He will look at Christian suffering as part of the ongoing conflict between Christ and the seed of the Serpent.
