Topic: True Religion

[From the New Outlook, Toronto, Ontario, Canada]

There is no assurance that good men will live easy lives. Religion is not a short cut which eliminates the hard places. Indeed, the more Christian a man becomes, the more difficult it is for him to remain at ease. Clearer insight shows him evils which he has to fight, and the sense of new responsibilities drives him outside the circle of self-interest in an effort to help those in need. ... "Endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ"—the man who wrote those words had no desire that his readers shoudl evade the difficulties of life. He realized that the important thing is the way in which people meet their problems: and it is here that Christianity speaks to a discouraged age.
