Andrew Miller (1810-1883) - The Cost Of Real Christianity

Andrew Miller was probably best known for his "Short Papers on Church History"
John 6:53,66 'Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you...From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him'

"You may speak of religion in a general way, of preachers, of churches, of missions, of societies for doing good, and still be popular; but speak of the Lord Himself, of His precious blood, of the full assurance of salvation, of oneness with Him in heaven, of separation from the world, and you will greatly reduce the number of your friends." - Andrew Miller
From the first century, to the 1800's, to 2012, as far as the world's opposition to the Lord Jesus Christ goes, nothing has changed. It has never been the 'many'. It has always been the 'few'. Press on believer.
Highly recommended: Classic sermon by William Dell (1607-1669) - A DISCOURSE, TOUCHING THAT OFFENCE WHICH THE WORLD TAKES AGAINST CHRIST Preached at Cambridge, about the year 1647
