Christianity is Difficult…

because it really does require a life long commitment of every aspect of life in the quest to become like Christ. To truly understand Christian Faith you have to understand that the word “Christian” has no hyphen before or asterisk after to modify it. The old American Protestant hymn is quite correct “I have decided to follow Jesus, no turning back…”

Christianity is also beautiful beyond words because as its transformative powers are allowed to work, even if that transformation is difficult in any given moment, the person on the path begins to become what they were meant to be and discovers a kind of existence that, while fully engaged in the world, also transcends it, a world to come that lives in the present.
