Would It Just Be Easier Not to Be Christian?

What if no one ever told you about Jesus?

Your life probably wouldn’t have so many rules. You wouldn’t be as guilty for any sins you commit (you wouldn’t even know they were sins in the first place). You wouldn’t need to evangelize.

And you wouldn’t know that the God of the universe—your creator—loves you with a burning passion that you can’t even imagine.

Today, Fr. Mike makes the case that it is better to know Christ. It is better to live in the truth. And it is better to take on the challenge of Christian discipleship.
