Persecution and Prosperity

"Have you ever thought of prosperity as a test? Randy Alcorn once heard of a leader of the persecuted church in Romania say, 'In my experience, 95 percent of the believers who face the test of persecution pass it, while 95 percent who face the test of prosperity fail it.' Wow! That's a staggering statement. And I know one man who would agree."
