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.

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?
How does one know they have taken up the cross? What does that look like? How can it be explained? Answers are given to a sincere seeker of God.
It's a common saying, that Jesus took our place on the cross. But is it true? Read to find out.
