go to the
scriptures and learn of a God that is far different from

We will use
as our beginning scripture a parable that our Lord told in
13:20-21, "He that receiveth the seed (Word) into stony places,
the same is
he that heareth the Word and anon with joy receiveth it;
yet hath he

Paul, in teaching about how God tried Abraham, said in Heb.
"By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac..."
in James 1:12, "Blessed is the man
(and is not offended) for when he is tried He shall

Peter said, "That the trial of your faith being much more
than gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might
unto praise though it be tried with fire, might be found unto
honor and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ."
"The fining pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold,

trieth the hearts."
