Quote of the Week - G.K. Chesteron

"The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried." --G. K. Chesterton


George Patsourakos said...

Christianity has been found difficult for some people to adhere to, because of its high ethical and spiritual standards. For example, it is difficult for some people to abide by the Ten Commandments, which are so critical in Christianity.

George, Why do you say that the 10 Commandments are "so critical in Christianity?"

George Patsourakos said...

I believe that the Ten Commandments are so critical in Christianity, because I consider them to be God's rules that true Christians must respect and obey.
In other words, the Ten Commandments serve as indispensable guidelines, which Christians need to accept and live by. This may be a difficult task for some Christians to achieve.
