In many religions the more the devotees suffer and the sadder they are, the more religious they are considered to be. But for the born-again Christian, it’s supposed to be just the opposite!

God hasn’t made religion difficult and grievous, and Jesus certainly didn’t make it that way. Not even Moses, with all the strict laws he laid down, made it that . . .
