“It’s Hard to Be a Christian”
“It’s hard to be a Christian” is an often heard statement, and often expressed conviction, an often repeated excuse and an often implied fact.
It is quite true, it is hard to be a Christian, but an average sinner has all the temptations, trials, anxieties, worries, torments, and fears which a Christian can have, and then a thousand more that the Christian never has.
Then the Christian has an unlimited supply of light, knowledge, truth, sympathy, love and hope, which the sinner does not have.
Yet, it is hard to be a Christian, but it’s a thousand times harder to be anything else.
