Faith Takes Work

We’ve created a society with too many out clauses.  If something isn’t the way we want it, or we aren’t enjoying it, we leave.  We quit and find something new.  We need a newer, better TV, car, house, clothes…

We’ve even come to the point where marriage is optional.  You hear all the time about couples who divorce because of irreconcilable differences.  I was raised that there was no such thing.

Faith is similar to a marriage.  If you don’t want it to work out, quit showing up.  You can’t expect to never spend time with your spouse, never be home, put all your effort into other things and still expect to have a healthy marriage.  The same can be said for faith.  You can’t expect never to read the bible, go to church, pray, or seek God in any form and still have a healthy religious life.

You become a religious Eunuch   You’re not an atheist or a christian.  Or anything else for that matter.  You don’t care.  You just live your life without a stance towards anything spiritual.
