Jesus Christ paid the price, and those who will enter life must pay the price. There is nothing worthwhile gained in this world or the next without paying the price. Those who believe will pay it.
Religion is about a free ride. Those who are religious want the glory without the cross. That is what religion is all about, be it Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Catholicism, Mormonism, or any other.
Reality is about paying the price for Christ’s sake, about laying down the life. There is no other way to true victory, fulfillment, gain and peace.

I would like to know how you approach the Great Commission? Should believers be out on the streets witnessing nonstop like some teach or...?
There are those who demand the gifts of God while they despise the price required for those gifts to be made available to them. Riesah Prock from Shamanik Healing is such a one. In response to a recent Harvest Haven Newsletter she said, "I appreciate your agricultural efforts and results and enjoy eating them, but not with a side of righteous commentary." In other words, "I appreciate you serving me, but I have no interest in righteousness."
There is only one way to Heaven. Traditional thoughts focus on the death of the body, but the truth from God says that if we will live here and now, we must take up the cross - we must die. To be identified with Him, the Lord Jesus Christ, we must die to the world and ourselves, or how can we be with Him where He is, as He would have us to be?
