Billy Graham Sermon: Joy in Tribulation

Nowhere does the Bible teach that Christians are to be exempt from the tribulations and natural disasters that come upon the world.

The Bible teaches that all our righteousness-falling short of the divine standard as it does-is as filthy rags in the sight of God.
