I don't think the original post meant to imply that Christianity, consistently followed as you have described, is easy.

What the poster was speaking out against is people whose MAIN reason for being Christian is that Christianity is the most prevalent major religion in this country at this time.

Those same people would have been Muslims if they had been born in Saudi Arabia, or Shinto if born in Japan, or Hindu if born in India...they are just creatures of custom, and their spiritual practice (so called) is nothing but what everyone else is doing.

They do not have the ability, or the inclination, to think for themselves, and choose their own spiritual path. It is much easier to go along with what everybody else is doing than to question the sacred assumptions of your culture.

> Is there anything easy about taking up your cross daily, dying to self, counting all things loss, turning the other cheek? I listened to a retired general speak this morning. He said there are no atheists or agnostics in foxholes fighting for freedom, liberty and justice for all - that is for ALL people in the world. I don't equate faith with polictics, but it takes a strong faith to do the right thing, despite the cost.
