Difficult, not easy

Stand to Reason objects, for good reason, to this shirt:
If you own this shirt, throw it away. If you know someone who owns this shirt, tear it from their body and then throw it away. They'll thank you later. ....

Jesus-As-Easy-Button theology is certainly a characteristic mistake of a consumeristic, invidualistic, instant gratification oriented culture. An older author like G.K. Chesterton provides a corrective: "The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting; it has been found difficult and left untried."
