Quotes (529)

Samuel Annesley The church of Christ can as little bear continual prosperity, as long adversity: a calm is sometimes as dangerous as a storm. Many are the temptations and snares of a prosperous condition: it breeds hypocrites; errors and heresies spring up like weeds in rank ground; professors are apt to grow remiss and careless, wanton and secure; to be too fond of the present and to hanker after more temporal happiness than God judges good for them.

- Samuel Annesley

1620 – 1696

    Christians “are apt to grow remiss and careless, wanton and secure; to be too fond of the present and to hanker after more temporal happiness than God judges good for them.”

    May God have mercy on us.
