“I don’t want to be a Christian,” your friend at school says. “It’s too difficult, and it’s no fun. Following all those stupid rules, and never getting away with anything!”

You’re about to open your mouth when a friend who attends a different church says, “You’re nuts! Being a Christian is not; it’s easy! Jesus saves us. I got saved in church when I was 10, and I don’t have to do anything else about it. What’s so difficult about that?”

What do you think? Which friend do you agree with—or do you have another opinion? Is being a Christian hard, easy, or would you explain it some other way?

I would say, "Well, here's my opinion. Christianity is amazing because I can follow God and get all kinds of cool rewards, like heaven. But I want to grow to be like Him so it's not just once saved always saved."

I agree with the friend who says it's easy because I don't find God's rules difficult to follow (personally). But there are times when I break the rules and then I need God's help and forgiveness.

To be honest i would not agree with any, some people say that being a Christian isnt all that there is to it, it is said that anyone can get baptized and be a Christian, but not everybody can live in the way God wants them to live. As the second friend said, its easy, just get baptized and that is all there is to it, but that isnt true, anybody can be baptized and not live the lifestyle God planned out for them, In my opinion I believe it isnt easy, but with Gods help, we can all be the Christians He wants us to be.

I would't agree either, because I've been taught that salvation is not just saying "I'm baptized, I'm saved already" No, because we have to work i our own salvation all the time. Jesus already bought it for us, now we have to use it correctly........Idk if I'm right....... But this is how I view it, it's kinda hard to explain....
