"Christianity is impossible"

Category:

I remember saying that to myself many years ago. And what I meant by that is “the Christian life is impossible to live”. The standard is too high. I can’t live it.

And I think I was right!

I just read a quote in a facebook post by a facebook friend named Nick Sumaylo. It went like this:

The Christian life and ministry are not difficult.
They’re impossible.

See?

And if Christianity is impossible, what better thing to do than to leave it!

I wanted to. I tried.

But it seems like Christianity always has an answer to those questions… and my alternative worldview do not.

I have become like the man who said, “Where else can we go? You are the source of life.”

But I was right! It truly is impossible…

The Christian life and ministry are not difficult.
They’re impossible.
They are supernatural life and ministry.
And you cannot live a supernatural life, you cannot engage in a supernatural ministry by natural means alone.
Everything coming from God, NOTHING from you and me is the secret to Christian life and ministry. Watch the danger of a misplaced confidence!

— Dr. Howard Hendricks

Tsk tsk!

It is impossible.
