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.
