When Faith Hurts
It's hard to be a Christian. People mistakenly believe that Christians are looking for something to comfort them or make them feel good. Christianity makes me uncomfortable!
Christianity calls me to forgive those who hurt me deeply. It requires I strive for Christ-like friendship with people I may not like or strongly disagree with.
Being a Catholic means dragging myself to Mass, even when I feel empty, to praise, worship and receive my Lord. To extend my hand and heart in a sign of peace with those who challenge me. Watching the martyrs in the world I have to acknowledge that my faith may even require me to give up my freedoms or my life.
If you want easy, maybe moral relativism would be a better choice. Christianity is hard, but that's what Jesus and love require.
