Gold may be tested as well as dross

September 1, 2009

(Temptation) does not necessarily imply the possibility of a failure to stand the test. Gold may be tested as well as dross. And gold can never fail to stand the test…if we were in ignorance of the true nature of Christ’s person, we should suppose that he might have failed in the hour of temptation.
