Why do we Christians view Christianity as living a life of pain and sacrificial existence? Why do we confuse the "PAIN" (our daily self-inflicted actions) in our lives as the "necessary evil" in going to Heaven? Isn't that a contradiction to the TRUTH? The TRUTH that is ignored, while we pursue GOD, HEAVEN and SALVATION through "self-abuse" because we believe "NO PAIN, NO GAIN". Hebrews 12:2, "for the JOY that was set before HIM...." When we REALLY TRUST GOD IN EVERYTHING we have no pain; we know GOD KNOWS exactly what is best for us; there is no PAIN in GOD'S LOVE. The only PAIN we experience is self-inflicted; kinda like SHOOTING OURSELVES IN THE FOOT.
