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 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."
It's a common saying, that Jesus took our place on the cross. But is it true? Read to find out.
How does one know what is true? By knowing the Truth Himself and forfeiting your old life to live anew.
