Some say that religion is the opiate of the masses. Kark Marx is most famous for the saying. There are good reasons to be a Christian, but being an opioid is NOT one of them!
Many of the rules we have would be considered a buzz kill among party animals.
no sex outside of marriage, drugs limited to what your doctor is willing to prescribe, limited alcohol use.
I repeat there are very good reasons for those rules, but we often don’t see these reasons until our life leads us to the bottom of a ditch somewhere, and we know that our life would be better off if we had followed the rules that God gave us.
The only good reason to be a Christian is that it is absolutely true.
1 Corinthians 15:12-14 (KJV)
Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead? But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen: And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.
Our religion isn’t about opioids, it isn’t about fantasy, it isn’t fiction. It’s about Christ. If he lives our religion is true!
