“The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the Church.” - Tertullian
… that the critics will always tell us to “be more Christian” while simultaneously mocking the core doctrines and morals of the Christianity.
That is real hypocrisy.
Judging by the picture and the title for this post, you’d probably be wondering where I’m going with this..
Because, considering the bad rap Christianity has had throughout the years, one would think, why even be a Christian when you can live your life without having to worry about being persecuted while having to follow some “binding” moral code that holds you to such an unbelievably high standard?
But the fact of the matter is that there just seem to be so many sacrifices and trials Christians have to face.
To which I’d reply, oh yeah, no doubt.
But is being a Christian really worth all this trouble?
The answer, in simplest terms?
Just ask my homies in Heaven.
